    Any info on this One piece?

    I would say it's a Mountaineer I. I doubt that the kydex is from the shop. T my knowledge CRK never did a kydex for any OPK.

    Mountaineer II -> production date

    Not really. Of course, they may narrow it to a range of 2, 3 years. But dont expect too much. They did not take records of their production numbers and also not of the numbered pieces. That is the reason why they stopped numbering them. It just doesnt tell you anything if you dont keep track of...

    Wood inlay selection shrink?

    Just received confirmation from Tim today, that indeed they reduce standard wood inlay to 3 different inlays. According to Tim they are doing it to have more capacity for special runs. The official announcement will be done at Shot Show.

    Regular BG42 or Seb21 mammoth ivory?

    As CRK stopped using mammoth ivory, from a collectors standpoint I would go for mammoth. As said by the other members above, if you are looking for a user, you may prefer a BG42 Regular. Although not everybody is happy with BG42 for edc purpose, because its easier to maintain the edge with S30V...

    phantom opk finally appeared.

    I am by far not the expert on OPK than nyefmaker and a few others. If you would turn the blade around and there is no "USA made", then the number and the hex cap indicate that it is made in South Africa (also early USA made OPK were numbered and could have a hex cap as those days were kinda...

    Always considered trying a tanto. Now its time ...

    Thanks to many great members over here, who kept explaining that tanto blade style is useful for edc tasks and sharpening is nothing to be afraid about. After 3 times insingo blade at my edc Sebenza, this time I decided to give tanto a chance. 21, Plain Titanium, Tanto, 01 by Jedi, auf Flickr...

    The CRK Anticipation Thread - Show Your 'Inbound's!

    I wouldn't be too much concerned. Mammoth has been their top of the line and most expensive inlay material. Orders from dealers as well as direct orders from customers did have a long lead time, particularly with dammy blades.

    The CRK Anticipation Thread - Show Your 'Inbound's!

    Congratulations! I was wondering a bit about the date at the birthcard, October 2017, as CRK has announced in 2014, that they do not accept any new orders on mammoth inlays, due to the complicated regulations. Well. "Not taking any new orders" isn't the same as "not making them anymore"...

    Kinda disappointed with my Thuya Burl Damascus: school/sell me on Macassar Ebony

    This is Macassar at an older 21. Birthdate is Februar 2012. Somewhere in that area Macassar was discontinued as an inlay material. 21, Macassar, Spirograph, 04 by Jedi, auf Flickr 21, Macassar, Spirograph, 10 by Jedi, auf Flickr In 2016 they did a major swap of wood inlays. Out of Box Elder...
