Show Your Crashblades

If you've got em, show em.  Feel free to review their performance - good - bad or ugly.  I'm always looking to make them better, so your feedback is appreciated.

Allow me......

Twas a cold wintry day at work, by the time lunch rolled around I was chilled to the bone. A nice bowl of soup would help warm me up, usually
I would bring something homemade in, but I've been battling a cold lately and just grabbed a can from the grocery store. As luck would have it I remembered to bring a can opener into work so I was all set, or so I thought  :( as soon as I took one crank on the can opener it just barely bit into the lid and basically broke in my hand....*&*^%  >:( to say I was a little pissed is an understatement, but then out of the blue I figured I'd put my Crasblade Utility blade to the test, that blade sliced that lid off like it was made of tinfoil, and speaking of paper, when I was done I checked to see if the blade would still slice paper easily and it cut thru as it it had never eaten metal.... 8)

I don't have any pics at the moment but I have 2 crashblades the first one I got last spring and has been used to gut, skin and quarter 3 deer this fall as well as skinned out a mess of coon,the other I got late this last fall and have used it to skin and quarter one deer and skin a bunch of coon and mink. Both knives hold edge extremely well and are very functional designs, these are what I would no fluff knives,pure utility, and they do their job well. Thanks for some good knives bro,  have a good one,   Dog

We have these thick plastic gaskets at work which help hold the rink glass in place and prevent it from chipping when two guys at 400 plus lbs slam into it.... sometimes the gaskets literally vibrate down the rink supports and slowly start getting pulled out the bottom, but because of the cold they will not bend any further and sort of jam up and stick out which creates a trip hazard.... so, out with my trusty CBUK
 ( crashblade utility knife ) to take care of the problem...

I just got my Crashblade on Tuesday, and I can't wait to put it to work.  I will say right off that the knife is beautiful! The ironwood scales and high polish on the blade is just gorgeous! I will post pics when I get out to use it. Thanks Crash!!
