CRKT Provoke
« on: January 21, 2019, 09:20:55 AM »
I have been spending money like a drunk sailor so why not knee jerk buy something that I have no training in using.

Well because it looked cool and had a very unique mechanism that's why.

I was on the waiting list to purchase the CRKT Provoke and when I got the alert to purchase I tried via the online website and it crashed. So I called Customer Service and asked about it and they said their website was overwhelmed. So I guess I have plenty of company in the knee jerk department.

I haven't used it much but did carry it for a few days when I was wearing jeans. Was a little stiff at first but after working it a little it deploys pretty quick... other than the hanging up on my pocket seam. Not sure why except maybe because I am left handed and it is in my left pocket.

We will see. pretty heavy.

Hmmm wonder if these pictures will be all rotated off??  :popcorn:

My youngest wanted a fixed version. Obviously I said no.

I have a thing for flashlights.

But Jon... I signed up with CRKT and they gave a 20% off code for my first purchase.. so it was only $180.00.. cough.. So yeah.. more of a like to have than a need it.. LOL I have been carrying it and because I am left handed it is different to pull and deploy. My left index finger has to go into the hole and then rotate it into my palm as I pull it out. With all of the arms it has that rotate to extend the blade they tend to snag on my pocket edge so it isn't a smooth pull like a normal knife with smooth scales. We will see.

JR I'm with you on the flashlights... I like Olight. I signed up for their notifications and they have some pretty good FLASH sales that only last a day or a few hours where you can get 40% off. I like the Olight magnetic charging option. Just a USB and snap to light and you can charge. You don't have to plug in a tiny micro USB or take the battery out to charge. Very bright for small packages.
