    Sebenza 31 Lock Rock?!

    This thread made me cancel my order! I have other CRK's that I bought while waiting for the 31. I ordered last August thinking that if I did not then they may be hard to come by. I was contacted this week to ask if they can go ahead with production. Seeing that many dealers are now stocking the...

    Sebenza 31 Lock Rock?!

    I received the email saying that my 31 will be going into production soon and do I have any questions. I mentioned the issues discussed here and referred them to this thread. Here is their reply. "We have not changed the design of the Sebenza 31. Lock rock, or vertical blade play, is when a...

    Sebenza 31 Lock Rock?!

    Thanks so with that birth date I guess that's about just when CRK was being made aware of this. To post an image create a free imgur account and upload your image. Then grab the link it gives you and then when prompted for image url when clicking the image icon in the editor just paste it there...

    Sebenza 31 Lock Rock?!

    Hi Matt, Did your new knife arrive directly from CRK with a recent manufacture date? Reason I am asking is that I have one on order possibly only due in 2 or 3 months time and also wondering that if this flex thing is really an issue that by the time I get the call for mine that it will have...

    Recommendation? 21 new vs LNIB

    The two listed in my area as stockists don't have any CRK products at all. Yesterday one of the very active users on a CRK group put up some NIB 21's at great prices. Shortly after contacting him his listing and all of his previous posts disappeared! Seems to have disabled his account.

    Recommendation? 21 new vs LNIB

    Chris, sorry to hear about your injury and how you've had to adapt. In my case the joint at the base of my thumb was shattered taking out the nerves and tendon too. This does affect my dexterity at times. My main intention would be to add the 21 to my small collection, specially seeing that...

    Recommendation? 21 new vs LNIB

    Now two camps both making perfect sense!!! I guess if I'm going to stick the 21 in the collection it doesn't really matter if I like it or if I can open it easily. Having said this I see that there are some BNIB available for around 380 which makes users at 350-370 even less appealing. I'm...

    Recommendation? 21 new vs LNIB

    All great advice thanks. A new one it will be. I have never carried any of my higher end ($250 plus) knives and where possible have bought users of the same models to carry adding the others to the collection. I recently picked up a couple of sprint run ZT's (my first ZT's) and followed up with...

    Recommendation? 21 new vs LNIB

    Hi, Firs time posting here. I've been on the fence for years wrt owning a CRK folder. I have many others from the regular big name companies plus a handful from Trevor Burger and other SA custom knife makers. I am looking at a large pj 21. There are many for sale on the secondary market for...

    Stropping vs Ultra Fine Stones

    Great information FK. Elsewhere on BF I found instructions on preparing the leather before making a strop. This involved wetting it, partial dry and then really rolling it hard with a heavy roller for 5 minutes or so. This really did harden up the latigo leather I was using and supposedly also...

    Spyderco Ultra Fine stone: Dry, Water, or Oil?

    The Sharpmaker works very well even in relativity unskilled hands. I leave mine assembled all of the time and it's so easy just to give a few passes as and when required. The best feature is being able to use them dry. However, mentioned above, the biggest problem too is that they will start...

    Norton India - Shapton 2k - Strop

    Thanks David. Yes, it's the sweet spot for now. I hope it's not the start of the slippery slope of expensive stone buying! So far it's working for the low tech. steels. I need to start practicing with some of the higher tech. steels to see if I can get the same results. Oh and if I haven't said...

    Norton India - Shapton 2k - Strop

    Many years ago I bought a lansky with extra stones. It did a decent job but I got tired of having to use the clamp and the mess of the oil. I then bought the Spyderco sharpmaker which I have used for about 20 years to which I recently added the CBN rods. I got a bee in my bonnet and decide to...
