Thanks for the user feedback. Looked at the SRK closely ultimately went with Fallkniven A1. I think Cold Steel had the A1 in mind when they updated the SRK. Lower cost competitor/choice with the SRK. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001DZM482/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3QS88LXSPPCUO&coliid=I6OE40VN3NU3P
I think Fallkniven had the SRK in mind when designing the A1. The SRK appears in the catalogs since 1993, the A1 was released in 1999.
Nevertheless, both fantastic knives. Benchmade has a (carbon steel) version too, the Benchmade 158BK CSK II
