    What your favorite handle material for a CRK? PJ ti, inlay, ccg, or unique.

    I'd have to say I like the looks of a plain jane with character marks the best. I have several plain jane that I really

    like a lot.

    I'd probably say CF / wood inlays... :)

    Never had a unique graphic one, though I've held one.
    I will pick wood inlays, they just feel so good in hand.

    Personally I like some of the engraved knives. I also like CF, and the look of inlays


    Nobody likes a showoff.... :D I REALLY like both of these :thumbup:

    Here is my only Unique Graphic (with another one in the mail ;) ):

    Here is what I consider my prettiest wood inlay knife - Macassar Ebony:

    But my plain Jane handle will hold it's own against any of these. Unfortunately some of its sail trails and marks, which adds to its beauty, are not showing in the picture.

    Carbon fiber full scales or one piece (annual) wood inlays for me!

    I would like to get a carbon fiber inlay - small and/or large! The one piece annual goes with out saying of course.

    I like the CF and the Wilson Combat burst/rays or whatever it is. Although I love seeing LW's night and morning skies. I wonder if I could get an anodizing job done to make the burst pattern match a sunrise pattern, that would be pretty cool.

    I like all of them, on the other side of the spectrum I've never warmed up to the
    c.f. scale on my small insingo that I got when they first came out. I can't get over the fit and finish of crk
    God bless all of you and your families over the weekend.

    My point of view exactly. Maybe one day I'll get one with micarta inlays, but first I'd like to have more plain janes, especially some regular sebenzas.

    I prefer inlays on the small Sebenzas, mostly for the added grip width. My small everyday Sebenza has Box Elder inlays. I have a CGG small and large Sebenza (blue paw prints on both). I like the graphics but the small one doesn't "hold" as well for me as the small inlaid Sebenza. On the large ones, I don't really have a preference. I've had quite a few large micartas mostly because of the way they look. They are just so... perfect looking as folding pocket knives. They've never stayed around though... go figure. OTOH, I still have a large plain double lug that is really comfortable to hold and use.

    Micarta inlays or plain Ti
    I like it simple and practical.

    Plain Jane, it develops its own unique graphic over time.

    The only UG / CGG I'd love to get are the Moon Song & Night Sky on a Regular Profile. However, I can also accept either a Native American or "Think Twice Cut Once" Regulars as well... :D

    Micarta for me. Although the CFs are very nice and I see one of those as my next CRK.

    A lefty small Insingo CF would be awesome. Love the Insingo blade.
