Count me in  :tu: was in the store last week to buy a Mut and just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on it. So I picked this up as a little consolation present to myself. Super happy with it and saved a hundred and fifty bucks in the process :tu:

I am so in. I had a C304 and wanted a combo blade. Then I caught a brand new c305 on ebay last week :mail: I like the 304-305 series because the scales are much more appealing than the new crater series. The craters look cheap imo. Merely cosmetic of course. I am very glad to have the 305 now.

I don't think you'll be judged too harshly  :D

Mine, my favorite knife I've ever edc'd, it held a great edge, was easy to sharpen, strong enough I could actually use it, and inexpensive and common enough I wasn't afraid to just carry it, drop it, etc. Love this knife, definitely has proved its value.

Love the tip strength too. An impressive entry in the sub-$20 category, for sure.

Of course you are welcome :tu:  If you don't have a Crater.  Don't panic!  Just buy a C33 Crater the first chance you get!  Tis cheaper than joining a freemason lodge  :whistle:

I've carried this mostly almost everyday except for the rare time when I carry a Vic Tinker or Gerber EAB. I've thought about getting another mt but the C33T carries most of my needs.

I knew my wife was a keeper when she transitioned from calling it a knife thingy to a multi-tool.

Joe, if you like C33T then you must try Kershaw Select Fire, I think it is a way better alternative, I am using it in my week long challenge, stay tuned.

Used my Frankenstein C33T to put the new plate on my son’s lease car (we can lease toyota products thru my employer...). I took a C33TX with a mangled blade and swapped in the plain edge blade from my C33...

Are the blades interchangeable by the user? i have a c33 and a c33xl, want to swap blades in the frames, does the blade launcher model have anything different on the backside or is it just in the frame?

I like mine on my keychain but the clip isn't reliable enough.  I want to remove the carabiner & replace it with a ring or something else.  Any ideas ?

I like that it's so easy to strip & clean.  The solution to my problem was staring me in the face.  I plan to use an old key to make up a ring to replace the carabiner.

I only did it because the carabiner kept coming undone & I couldn't trust it on my keys.
