Ok, yes I have a problem and no I don't care.   I like knifes and have to many and don't even use most of them.   So F'en what they are mine.

I just got in a large shipment for the e-store and while listing them I got rather attached to two of them.   I know I need to only pick one (yea, right) so want some input from anyone who has either one of them or maybe even both.  Here are the two I having trouble picking between.

Gerber Ridge

I do not own either knife, but from experience with Kershaw,that would
be my choice.
Great knifes and ultra great service.

The Gerber is very reminiscent of the old CRTK Kiss folder. Both simply look like fun...

Have to go with the Keyshaw. Lee’s right as I still have a couple of the old CRKT KISS folders. Don’t know how I wound up with two as I never liked the first one much. Just never cared for the exposed blade no matter how tight it fits against the frame. Fun to play with until the first few cuts. Just never trusted them much for EDC.
But Gerber may have built their version up so just get both of them. You know you’re going to anyway 😜👌

I just received the Benchmade HK from you last week. Have to tell ya JT that knife knocks both of these out! Have not been without it since it arrived. Excellent little knife!
Goes to show you that your advice is indeed worth something. Thanks for that.

Dave, did the HK open OK without having to lossen the torx screws.   Mine did not but once I backed the screws off a hair it was fine.   I sold a bunch of them and no one has had an issue with theirs yet.  So I picked the only one in the box that need tweaked.  Not surprising as that has been my history.

DJ, I have about decided on the Kershaw because my Blur is one of the best knives I have carried.  The Shuffle is of course smaller then the Blur so I would use it for the rare occasions I wear dress pants instead of jeans.

It was a little tighter than I liked JD. It usually stuck a little about half way. Then I remembered what you said about backing off the screws. I did just a bit on one. It’s fine now. Just really like it.

Yeah you gotta go with the Kershaw (first).

Decision is made.   I am keeping a Shuffle II.   I should probably not offer knives on the store like the kid who loves chocolate should not sell band candy.  It's to easy to just keep one from my inventory.  It would be different if I needed a knife by mine is a want not a need as I have them for every occasion.  Another problem is Michigan just made Automatic Knives legal so I am getting the itch.  I'll not put them on the store as there are still to many states that do not allow them and I would be having to refund customers from those states who added one to their order.  I already do that with some magazines and I can see it all becoming a big hassle.
