The stainless Cara Cara is one of my favorite knives to gift. It's a dramatic step up in quality compared to what most people own, and they enjoy the sturdy feel of the metal handles.
It really feels sturdy.
Anyone noticed that the snap open and close seems to be louder and there’s vibration in the handle? It feels like a fixed blade because of that.
Got two, the build quality is excellent! No play. Edge bevel can be better but I have come to accept I need to resharpen them to make them mine. Overall in its own way elegant. Anyone feel the FRN version feels raw/unfinished, should try the stainless version.
Sal, the maker still uses that horrible white loctite on the clip screws. It won’t budge so I can’t take them out. Will try using soldering heat later. The hawkbill also same, still that whitish loctite when I finally managed to take them off.
Update: one clip is finally off, but the other one doesn’t. Used soldering iron (60W) for 50 seconds on the screw head, it still won’t budge, and twisted my new torx driver. Have happened with previous Cara Cara FRN too. May need to cut a slot and use slotted driver (more sturdy) to force it off.
