    Ah sweet relief :D

    Took a couple quick shots before I flip the screws. The last one is with a Large 21 :thumbup:

    I couldn't be happier! Big thanks to Tom for inadvertently getting me interested in the Regular and a big thanks to Todd for letting this one go for a great deal!

    This thing is smooth as silk and is sticking with me for a long time! ...and I'm gonna use the hell out of it :cool:

    Looks great James!

    I was always partial to the looks of the Regular Sebs, especially the blade profile, double thumbstuds and double blades to boot!

    This one should give you a few lifetimes of use and enjoyment!

    Congrats again!

    SO glad that you finally got one. I know you have wanted one for awhile, and I am sure you feel that it was well worth the wait. I only have one with double studs ( my NCIS engraved one ) and I absolutely love the double studs on the large regulars. I have had double studs on several 21's that I have tried, and they just never felt the same and in most cases not anywhere close to the comfort of those on the large regulars.

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts after a few days of fondling and carry. It will grow on you like no others. My first sebenza was a large regular, so I have since compared everything else to it. Nothing compares...!!!

    Enjoy it my friend....!

    Thanks Tom!

    All my Sebenzas feel great in hand, if they didn't I wouldn't have gotten passed the first one. However, this is really something. It just fits(does that make sense?). It's one of the most comfortable knives I've ever handled. Without a doubt, I will be carrying my Large Regular daily..and as I had feared I want another already!:D

    I'm satisfied though and confident that I've found the knife for me. It's a beaut and I'm really looking forward to using it:thumbup:

    Everything about it works and the blade profile is spot on! I'm really glad I went with this and Todd was awesome to deal with.

    The last thread I started a member described it as a tank..a beautiful tank and I couldn't agree more. Simple, solid, well thought out, and brilliantly executed. Perfection!:thumbup:

    Crongrats! That is an awesome set up you got with the spare back up blade.

    I can't wait for mine to get here. It's going through customs in NYC right now!

    Thanks for sharing the pics. The knife looks great! I'm sure it's going to become your main EDC now.

    The wait can be killer, but well worth it! I can't wait to see what you have coming! Thanks for the congrats and it's my pocket buddy for the foreseeable future!

    I feel the same way, I can't explain it as eloquently as I'd like to, but it's crazy good! I genuinely didn't expect that big of a difference from the 21, but it's there.

    Thanks Haze, I agree wholeheartedly!

    Maybe a Post Your Regulars thread is in order?....:)

    Congrats on a sweet pickup, I picked up two mint Large Regulars a couple months ago and they are my favorite!

    And yes, someone should start a "Post Your Regulars" thread, I'd do it myself but I need to take pics first. :D
