im curious about the differences between these knives. besides ofcourse the steel options, kurouchi finish and handle options-is there any reason to favor one knife over the other? ive heard the fanatic has a real flat grind, how do the grinds compare? if anybody has a reason why they favor one knife over the other i would like to hear it. thanks.

CCK has a belly, the Fanatic 2 in 52-100 is dead flat.

Fanatic is longer, takes a better edge and holds it longer too. If you want belly, I'd say get the AEB-L fanatic.

Actually all new AEB-L (13c26) Fanatics are the #2 model with no belly.

Just saw that. Don't know if there are still Fanatic 1's out there, but I like mine! :D

its weird that you mention the fanatic being longer michiel, because i believe there both listed at 210mm in length. however, just by comparing videos of each it looks as though the fanatic is larger. since i cant make up my mind i think ill just get both. i hope more ccks with custom handles are coming out soon. those are nice.

Isaiah is backed up with custom work so it may be a month before we get to more custom ccks. He has some Fanatics for cheap custom handles currently so those will come sooner.
