    Did not like them even a little. I tried to because they look beautiful. Did not like the feel in my hand or the liner lock. I also looked at the benchmade titanium and disliked it also so im not hating on the Sebenzas. After handeling many different knives I found I prefer knives a bit smaller.

    Sebenza doesn't have a liner lock.

    I'm assuming you looked at the large Sebenza as the small is definitely a small knife that may change your mind.
    Ps. The Sebenza is a frame lock not a liner lock.

    The only thing that keeps me from pulling the trigger on a CRK is the thumbstuds. I just really don't like them on any knife. I much prefer flippers or some kind of hole.
    If I could get an Insingo Mnandi, it would probably sway me though.

    Good, they're overrated.

    I'd say that is one opinion. CRK makes a damn fine knife, period. Their peers seem to agree based on the truck loads of awards they've earned over the last 25 years (just another opinion o course)

    Fixed.
    That's just your opinion, which is wrong IMO.

    Everyone can have different opinions. It's ok. Let's be happy! We all love knives :)

    Would you like them
    in a house?
    Would you like them
    with a mouse?

    That might help. While you don't have to like them, they are very well respected knives.

    They're not my cup of tea, either. Nice knives, though.

    I'm still trying to like my (large) CRK 21. I don't dislike it...it just doesn't thrill me. I've carried it for the last week, and only used it once (that's what I get for carrying a traditional in the left front pocket, and a fixed in the right rear - I just reach for the one I want). I'll probably break down and leave the fixed at home to force me to use the CRK for at least a few days.
    I suppose I should take it apart to get the full experience; but I really don't understand why that is supposed to open my eyes & help me "get it"

    It took me awhile to mature on knives also! You'll get there soon enough.

    I honestly thought my first Sebenza was overrated as well, actually sold it. After another hundred knives I realized why they were praised so much!

    Now it's all I own, carry, and praise.
