    I'm very excited to say the least: I have this one-of-a-kind Sebenza incoming with a custom sculpted titanium scale (by Daniele Serrano). I don't think the seller will mind me posting this pic. What do you guys and gals think? I might have to sell my plain large regular to fund the acquisition but oh well.......

    I think having that Basketweave pattern on a regular blade shape is the bees knees! Congrats!

    Thanks Lisa, somehow I suspected you'd be the first to answer ;)
    I think the handle is a big improvement from the original as well:

    No Lisa, the handle was sold by the previous owner, but I don't mind because that was certainly not my taste! This one actually comes with an orange G10 handle as well, but I can't see myself using this one either:

    Thanks Haze,
    yeah taste is a strange thing. The only special graphics handle I've seen that I like is my Isle of Man Sebenza. This is something so different that I like it a lot.

    Thanks hoodep, this will be my first CRK damascus, but from pics I like this pattern most (except maybe river of fire).
