At a glance I think KC has the lowest closeout prices so far:

Yup, picked up the chef knives for that price.

They were a great price.

Couldn't believe it.

I wouldn't hesitate to order from KC even if a disco'd is out of stock. They will get more.

Had to get a back up Mantra, with $10 reward came to $124. Couldn't pass it up. Already had a back-up Sprig or would have ordered it as well. Great prices.

Couldn't resist the Chef's knife and Sprig at those prices. I've been eyeing both of those knives for a long time.

Thank you...just picked up the Junction and Stretch 2 from KC...great deals!

Fine choices, those are my favorites of the bunch. The Junction is a very intriguing knife. Super slicey and and lightweight for a 4" fixed blade, unusual steel and it appears to have great ergos. I had to get one too.

...And I almost bought my second G10 Stretch 2, but decided to go with its more tactical cousin the A.T.R.2. instead. Glad that someone else will get to experience the G10 Stretch.

A pair of Sage 2s and a D'allara 3 on the way.

Back lock Manix 2 on KC — shipped free for $100; couldn’t pass that one up, been into bigger folders lately.

The Stretch seems to have flown under the radar. ..I didn't know much about it until recently. I really like the blade shape and I'm enjoying the workings of back locks!

I've been buying a lot of fixed blades lately for horizontal edc carry. I can always use the Junction for my camping trips if it's too big to carry daily.

Love the stretch but have the vtoku2 version on preorder. Had to jump on a rubicon 2 though. Surprised no one else seems interested in that one for a reduced price.

I think the Stretch has somewhat of a cult following. I just love the ergos and solid feel of it. I may have read somewhere that Sal designed the Stretch to be his personal EDC so it better be good.

The Rubicon 2 would have probably been my next choice after the two I picked up. So much stuff came out last month though! Can't have 'em all unfortunately.

These annual discontinued sales bring about some of the best deals. Often there will be a couple waves of discounts too. I know some people were bummed about paying full price for the Fradon Lock exclusive Manix 2 when ebay put up a 15% off sale shortly after its release. They really shouldn't complain... I jumped early on GPK's discontinued sale last year and could have saved $100 on my order had I waited. Some of these knives will sell out soon, others will see more discounts to come. It's always kind of fun to see how it goes.

I love my FRN Chaparral 5, so i might pickup the Ti Chaparral 2 if the discount over here is good enough. The Chaparral 3 with stepped Ti is still too pricey in my opinion, even with the current discount.

$139? $149?... it was cheap at any rate, I'm kicking myself now for only grabbing an Ouroboros. Though I'm still conflicted on the Sprig due to the steel choice... love the design, but would have been much more interested if it was a steel that's less focused on working edge performance.

I ended up snagging 2 Sage 2s, a D'allara 3 and an ATR2. I think I'm done... for now. Almost bought a One Eyed Jack, but eh.
