Not my knife, but belongs to a Deacon from our church. He wanted to see if I could sharpen it for him.
It is a CRKT Desert Cruiser.

I noticed right off that the blade sat off-center in the well, scrubbing hard against the liner. Also it felt a little "off" when opening and closing the blade (I don't say 'walk & talk, since it has no backspring - it is a tactical friction folder).

Once I took it apart I found some sticky coffee or cola inside, which had caused enough friction to slowly back out the main screw.
This knife was a joy to take apart and reassemble. There were no annoying springs or bearings to fight back into place - only a couple of thin plastic washers. After some soap & water, drying & oiling, it worked like brand new.

I sharpened it freehand with a whetstone, and finished with ceramic stones. This knife has some HARD steel! It took quite a while to get an edge on it, but it shaves now!
I am not really into tactical folders, but this is a pretty great knife!

I do not know why I posted fixed blades in a thread on folders. I must be losing it. Suppose I fixed on the word tactical. :oops: So here are some folding tacticals.

The Benchmade is my EDC and the Ontario Knife Company is in my kit bag. The M390 steel is quite hard and difficult to sharpen. The N690 steel is almost as hard and sharpens a bit easier. Both hold an edge very well although my non tactical folder with D2 outcuts them both.

Both folders are stout, but the Ontario XM-1 is built like a pocket prybar and is stronger than my grip.
The blade says "COMBAT DEPLOYED" and I received it from a soldier that has been overseas.

And the otherside, just 'cause I like the knives.

The massive build of the XM-1 is why it did not make it as an EDC, just plain too wide for comfort.
