Very nice! Are those the only two that you own?

Oh no, I have the addiction pretty badly. Currently up to 13 CRKs - the 10 in the picture below, plus another small Sebenza 31 (box elder/satin blade) at CRK being adjusted, plus a large Sebenza 31 (macassar/damascus) on the way, plus a new Umnumzaan tanto made of S45VN on the way. (And that doesn't include my nascent Andre Thorburn collection, see second picture, or my 3 Benchmade's). Everything is left-handed, except for the Benchmade's - which are inherently ambidextrous.

CRK Collection info:
(Top to bottom)
  • Mnandi - Box Elder Burl/Satin Blade LH
  • Mnandi - Thuya Burl/Raindrop Damascus Blade LH
  • Mnandi - Spalted Beech/Ladder Damascus Blade LH
  • Large Sebenza 21 - Natural Micarta/Insingo Stonewashed Blade LH
  • Large Sebenza 31 - Macassar Ebony/Satin Blade LH
  • Large Inkosi - Titanium/Stonewashed Blade LH
  • Umnumzaan - Titanium/Stonewashed Blade LH
  • Star-Tac (Wilson-Combat version of Umnumzaan) - Titanium/Stonewashed Blade LH
(Left to right)
  • Small Sebenza 31 - Macassar Ebony/Boomerang Damascus Blade LH
  • Small Inkosi - Titanium/Stonewashed Blade LH
(Not shown)
  • Small Sebenza 31 - Box Elder Burl/Satin Blade LH (at CRK for adjustment)
  • Large Sebenza 31 - Macassar Ebony/Ladder Damascus Blade LH (en route)
  • Umnumzaan Tanto - Titanium/Tanto Stonewashed Blade (S45VN) LH (en route)

Beautiful knives.

Out of the 21 and 31 which one feels better in the hand?

They essentially feel the same - no difference that I attribute to the knife. The micarta on the 21 feels a bit thicker than the macassar on the 31. But that is probably the inlay material more than the model difference. They both feel rock solid from a lock-up perspective. I do like the canted pocket clip a bit better.
