Such a great custom knife at an even better value

Ive had mine for about a month now and it just get more buttery smooth each day! This has been my most carried blade and the know I reach for when getting my day started. I would suggest this for heavy use in the field but for day to day needs - this does it with style, percision, and its badass!

Great knife, great people

It's a beauty. Ordered custom anodization - fuel slick handles, fuel slick pocket clip, electric blue hardware and spacers. Feels incredible in the hand. Smooth action. Zero lock stick - quite unusual in a brand new button lock. Blade centering perfect. Lockup perfect. Detent strength exactly where you want it. Flipper, front and reverse flick opening all go snick! Things they don't tell. you - there is billboarding on the blade, but it's out of the way and tasteful. "Chapman Lake Knives" in light print across the spine. "Bloomington IN" and "USA Made" in very light print on the clip side of the flipper tab (partly visible when closed, fully visible when opened). Serial number and "20CV" on the show side of the blade - near the pivot - and visible only when the knife is half-open - otherwise covered. This is about the most tasteful billboarding I've seen. Knife was a little behind schedule, and Brock was a joy to talk with about that. Also - who the heck texts a video of your knife to you, asking if it's what you expected before shipment???? I mean, seriously, awesome customer service on the build/ship side.

Thanks so much, Neil! We know that delays are always disappointing, but we're greatly appreciative of your patience as we sorted things out. We are thrilled to have delivered a knife that met your expectations!

The ano they get on their scales and hardware is unlike any other knife I have. Truly unique knife with amazing action. Would not hesitate to purchase. You are getting a USA made stunner!

Happy with a little work

Got the knife because there are not a lot of button flippers on the market.. Having owned a bunch of protechs I was hoping for something similar in action if not better. Out of the box the knife needed to be broken in. I gave it a day of almost constant flipping. It did improve but my finger was raw from the occasional lock up. Broke the knife down cleaned the grease out of the bearings and cleaned the button lock. (Did not mind the button rotation position). Lubed and reassembled.. the button needed to be broken in again in its new position. I attempted to play with the pivot tightness but the machining almost demands the screw be bottomed out, I recognize this is as precision not ‘lack of precision’. Overall the knife is very nicely made with beautiful anno work (oil slick). I haven’t been playing with it much lately but in time it will be a smooth flipper I was just hoping to be wowed out of the box like a Protech. I’ve also had this experience with a Medford smooth criminal that following the same procedures eventually smoothed out.
