I've got a LM Crater 33T. I am pretty happy with it. I have EDC'd it a lot. Love the fact that you can open every tool with one hand. It is however a little bulky in the pocket compared to a SAK.

Count me in   :cheers:.

I own a Crater c33L and an Expanse e33T, I cary them in my pocket or clipped on the shoulderstrap of my backpack when I have my Leatherman ST300 on my belt, so I have my "one-hand-opening-knife" needs covered  ;).

Love them both  :tu:.

I have one. Love it.

One thing to watch out for: The inside of the scales are hard and sharp. If you don't break those edges, you might slice your finger open (like I did) when using the quick deployment nub on the back of the blade.

The screwdrivers are FAR superior to those on even Vic SAKs. The half-and-half blade is also very good. Strong, pops right out, once the pivot bolt is loosened a bit.

One-handed carabiner? Meh.

I never carry it though: no toothpick. Shallow, I know, but when you need a toothpick and can't find one, it is frustrating. ;)

Good knives IMO.  :tu:

I have a C33B and have to say I am a little disappointed with it.  It is OHO only if you're right handed.  And there is no way to swap it over because of the bit driver.  If it were OHO for a leftie, I'd be quite happy with it (although the scales are a bit unfinished for my tastes). :whistle:

I have to agree with you on the scales and the oho is not all that great. I will carry it with a juice. One thing about the scales is the don't get jacked up like a sak.

Took a dremel and made the thumb slot a little bigger. Much easier to flick open.

I love the crater series.  I currently own a C33tx, and an E55bx.  I have previously owned a c55bx as well.  I love everything about the design.  The phillips and the flat head (c33tx) are an amazing size, and the bottle opener works like a dream.  I like the size of the blade on the C55/E55 and the option of using other bits.  I'm not as fond of the bottle opener on these models and I find myself not using it as often as my crater. 

I think that the C33 is an often underrated knife suggestion when people are looking for cheap EDC blades and I hardly ever see it being recommended on other forums when someone is asking for a budget knife.  The crater constantly outperforms knives that I have paid more for.

Currently the crater is my carry at home option.

Id love to see a C33 with wooden scales.
Will the scales be rigid enough?

Working on, kind of a fine line between to thick or to thin.

I guess its the same as when making wooden bows. If its too thick you can always remove more wood. If its too thin, you a have big problem.
