Nevermind. For some reason I'm still surpised when I discover that I'm the only one that thinks I'm funny....

Find one quick, since Chris retired the design the prices have gone up and they are getting harder to find.

First Post............Came here and joined looking for info on 1911's. I have looked at the Kimbers for years. Wanting to get my first one and am heavily leaning towards theirs. More on that in future posts.

Came across the Blade Forum section and thought I would take a look. I am a HUGE Chris Reeve Knife fan. I have spoken to Mr. Reeve himself several times and was in awe each time. He is a true gentleman and he is as passionate about his knives as we are in owning them.

I have had many One Piece Range Knives (OPR) over the years and had a large collection at one time. I sold a few off that I did not use or just did not care for to buy some Hinderer XM's. The XM's are nice, but I am still a die hard CRK fan and regret selling the ones I did. Here is a pic of my collection that I had at one time. A few are sold, but still have a few of my favorites ( which are NOT for sale...lol ). The OPR was discontinued early in 2010 and prices are souring, so if you want one, I suggest looking asap at the various knife forums or ebay as they are only going to go up in value.

Feel free to PM or post any questions on them and I will be more than happy to answer them. Thought I would share. Enjoy !!!

Dang, now that's a serious collection. I'm a folder guy and have never had one of those but I am local to CRK and have visited their shop a couple times and bought a Small Sebenza as a gift for a freind. Their knives are top knotch.

Also love CRK. I only have two but they see use. I have a Sebenza for my edc pocket. I also carry a "professional soldier" fixed blade while at work due to how thin it is. I don't have a use, or need, like that matters for one of his large fixed blades like are being discussed here. But if I did need one, or just want one, CRK would be my choice.

Oh, and "nyefmaker," I see you said that you are looking to purchase your first 1911. My advice DON'T, RUN AWAY!!!!! If you buy one you'll be selling the rest of your knives to buy more 1911's.

I have two Chris Reeve knives but only one is hollow handled. It's a Mark IV 7" 28th anniversary limited edition from 2009. The other is a serial numbered and Yarborough marked "Green Beret" that lives in my safe courtesy of my son who got it when he graduated from the SF Q course as a weapons SGT. I got the Mark IV to use because I liked it better than my older Randall Model 1 that I've had for years. I just don't like the sheath because the strap is so loose you can almost pull the knife out while it's snapped. A new sheath is being made as this is posted.

What's the difference between a mark IV and VI?
