    That pattern doesn't do it for me, but thanks for the suggestion.

    It's never bothered me, although it's definitely somewhat of an unusual decision to have such differently finished sides. My Classic wood inlay is polished on both sides, except on the lock bar and clip...I have wondered why that decision was made.

    How about a Doppler 21? Consistent finish on both sides (both blasted), and super cool pattern

    (I will warn you they are a bit hard to find...)

    Years ago, I collected CRK's and have owned maybe thirty or more...large and small Sebbies, in exotic woods and CF and other scale finishes...finally sold them all except for a couple of plain-Jane sebbies and one Zaan. Plain Ti slabs are my standard...spider-marks and all...

    I know right?! Would like to get a CF scale for my Umnumzaan also. Know any good, reputable crafters/producers out there?

    Yes! That bugs the crap out of me.

    I hate the contrast on the Sebenzas, but the Mnandis contrasting finishes do not bother me at all.
