    The CR2.5 getting in some work on opening day. Honestly in my opinion, this has got to be the best knife made. Dont get me wrong, I love all my other Esee knives but they knocked it outta the park with this design. Ive carried this every day for about 4 months now and just got to use it to process my harvest and I cant say anything bad about it. Im gonna buy another one just to stash it way for safe keeping. Sorry for the crappy pics i dont own a fancy camera IMG_20180901_112556.jpg IMG_20180901_112541.jpg IMG_20180901_120121.jpg

    It makes short work of all kinds creatures from fish to fowl to deer and cow. It is a great little cutter for just about every occasion.

    @shaneadams90 make sure you bring this to Overland east and I’ll hook you up with a sweet lanyard.

    I so wanted to love this knife. We just didn’t connect. I keep thinking I’ll give it another try some day.

    Mine came in, gave it a degreasing and then a vinegar bath. I actually like this little knife. Sheath is nice as well.

    Only had mine a few days but already using it around the house. I like the size and design of it and ergonomically it fits well. I’ve trimmed up some meat, sliced vegetables, cut some lengths of cordage and made up a few feather sticks. I’ll use it for dressing dove and quail. It will be in my hunting kit and I’m anxious to see how the little knife will gut deer. I can see a lot of uses for the CR2.5 …

    I don’t believe it’s lacking in any way. It comes down to personal preference. I find knife choil’s uncomfortable on some knives. This happens to be one (unfortunately) I find uncomfortable.
