    In the last month or so I've decided to start carrying my first CGG, and I'm wondering how regular of a thing that is in the community. Certainly some people do carry theirs, and certainly some people keep their's pristine, but I'm curious as to what general proportion of one ownership style to the other.

    I'll start! I've been carrying mine about once a week pretty reliably, sometimes twice.

    Pictures are absolutely welcome! See, I'm even getting just a little bit of a wear spot on the thumbstud lol

    Your post reminded me that I bought my large Elk Mountain 21 to carry. So I am gonna do just that for the next couple of days.

    I'm never going to sell this thing, so I should enjoy it more than I do. It's such a great knife, and my only large 21.

    To really answer your question, I've been hiding this thing with the rest of my CRKs, and carrying it hardly at all. I usually like to keep a close eye on it, and my work makes it all too easy to lose a knife.
    Thanks for the reminder, tho, I had almost forgotten how much I like this knife. :thumbsup:

    I carry a large Nica Model almost everyday. And it shows. :) But I also have a couple I don't carry just yet, maybe someday.

    That’s what 99% of my CRK carry is. I think I only have 3 plain sebenzas. The rest are CGG/UG/Inlays. And the UG get about 98% of that.

    I've had it a couple months. The Hex has held up well. Thanks for the compliment.

    I carried my Small 21 Lisa's Pick pretty often until I discovered the Insingo blade. I carried it in a sharkskin clip pouch on the inside of the pocket to protect the graphic from excessive key damage, although I misplaced the clip pouch and for last four months I've been looking for it and cannot find it. If I can ever find either a Pheasant Tail or Catch, I would definitely carry that. I'd probably have a custom pocket clip sheath made for that as well.

    I carry mine clipped to the pants, a Retro. Only trouble is the anodizing wears away and you cannot get it redone. However, it's too good of a knife not to use :)

    I don't carry any CGGs/UGs though I know people who do. I prefer micarta inlays myself. This one was carried by someone else and as you can see the anodizing holds up very well even if there are some faint scratches.

    Surface anodizing wears off, just like on the thumb stud. That anodization look like it's in groove beneath the handle flats so it will take longer to wear off.

    I have a small 21 insingo that i EDC when wearing shorts.... I also recently acquired a BNIB crop circles that I plan on EDC'ing when wearing pants. my thoughts are this: I bought these to use, and if others see the knife, and they are at all interested, they usually ask "what kind of knife is that". It's a conversation starter and a lot of times what I run in to is finding a whole lot of people that have heard of Sebenza's, but never held one.

    Also, I've gone back and forth as to not using this BNIB (DOB 2013), but honestly my house isn't a museum and i want others to enjoy it as much as i do. I didn't buy it to ever try and profit, i bought it because of it's beauty, which should be shared :)

    The only UG I owned was a Regular Web-Sight. I carried it. Boy do I miss that knife.
