    Just might become the new favorite. If only I had found CRK just a year sooner I could've had more time to experience all the scales and blade shapes to figure out what I really wanted before the 21 was discontinued. Better late than never I guess.

    Figured I'd get another 21 while they were still available

    `It's here! Adding my own pic.

    Wow! I don’t know how I missed that one on their website.
    That’s a great score. Congrats!

    Ah, the joy of being only about 110 miles from a great knife dealer. I ordered it about 1:00 pm yesterday, choose the flat rate usps shipping, and it is out for delivery! That, and I occasionally visit their brick and mortar store.

    No pic but I'm waiting on a Recon Tanto and an SRK that I bought as part of my "Oh no Cold Steel has new owners" panic buying, lol.
    They arrived in town today and are scheduled for delivery according to tracking

    Quick clean and lube and this thing is like new. The aftermarket scale it came with is kinda nice but the knife locks up over 90% :eek:. When I put the factory scale back on it brought it down to a cool 45-50%. Really is a testament to how tight the fit and tolerances are on these things. Outstanding find.

    Was FINALLY able to track down a NIB Umnumzaan RH, DP from a knife retailer. I will be buying it sight unseen, but after chatting with the knife counter guy on the phone I feel confident in my purchase. Funny how those guys already know CRK people like to know the DOB card date....I should hopefully be getting it delivered this Friday!

    This will be a NEW CRK knife purchase for myself...haven't had that minty fresh feeling for a while...

    **Also just called the factory and ordered the back spacer kit.

    Ordered my first CRK Damascus from an online reseller. Large Sebenza 31 pj with boomerang damascus blade, got a pic of the actual blade emailed to me before I pulled the trigger because the patterns can vary quite a bit, but I liked what I saw. So stoked to EDC the crap out of it!

    New Umnumzaan that's less then 24 hours old. I think I'm happy with how it turned out!
    (Red o-rings, Carbonfiber GID bead , Red/blk lanyard).

    Upon installing the spacer, I cleaned it out (DOB 05/7/2020), and gave it some fresh CRK grease. Amazing how much smoother it became.

    The V3 Hyde spacer really rounds it off. Glad I went with the "machined" finish as it pops with the screws !

    Now to wait for more o-rings to show up play with different color schemes. PXL_20210306_222451012_resize_42.jpg

    Have really enjoyed reading all of the contributions in this Forum! Figured I'd go ahead and launch my first post here -- newly arrived Mnandi...

    I’ve placed an order direct for an elder burl mnandi but as you may or may not know orders are backed up 9-12 months! I’ve been scouring the internet for a dealer that possibly has stock of a non demascus mnandi, no such luck. Looks like I’ll just need to be patient with this one. Though I couldn’t resist not having anything to carry I just pulled the trigger on a pj dual lug S 31. I can’t wait for it!

    I have a new small PJ 31 double lug shipping today to keep my small PJ inkosingo company but what I really want to know is when can I order up a small 31 insingo?

    I have a new user Sebenza incoming. Large 31 Black Micarta Raindrop Damascus. It will be my first 31. Fingers crossed.

    So the Mnandi arrived today, I like the basket weave a lot more than I expected. The Impinda came a week or two back, I didn't expect to like it (I like locking knives, or slipjoints with half stops) but I'm digging it as my wallet knife. My favorite CRK is still the raindrop micarta though.
