    I just received a 3rd generation Damascus. I ordered it thinking it was a 2nd generation Damascus. I am going to decided how I like it compared to my Gen 2s and 1.

    Bought My Wife a Knife

    I gave my wife a small purple spyderco years ago. I am pretty sure it is one of her purses. I would swap out the box. Another option would be give her jewelry in the box or perfume that is hard to open. When she ask for your knife to open it give her hers to open it.

    Clip less carry in the office - pocket sheaths?

    I love the pocket in pocket method. I wear suits and all of the pants have a small pocket in the front right pocket. It is perfect for me to clip my mnandi in. If I ever bought a suit with pants without the pocket I would have one put in.

    Mnandi: My latest Obsession

    Damn obsessions, I picked up 3 this year. My edc is a first generation I think it's ebony, I bought it here many years ago. Preferring the look of the old nail nick but hesitant about the ease of one handed opening I looked into damascus. Going for something different I picked up a box elder...

    Small Folders

    Beautiful knife, my edc is a Mnandi. Granted I work in an office but never needed something bigger even on weekends. I have a two sebenzas and an Inkosi but prefer the "very nice" knife.

    Kitchen Knives and cutting boards....

    After buying a new knife set last year my cutting board preference has evolved a bit. On the cheap knife that I used I would use an old bamboo board that was given to us. I like the fact that it was light and seemed better than the plastic one my wife used. However I read that they aren't the...

    Carbon Fiber Durability

    Well I did it. I left my old mnandi at home and took the new one out. I must admit the carbon fiber and damascus is an interesting combination. Thankfully I am able to open it as easy as my first generation. I guess it's a combination of muscle memory and the damascus adequate grip.

    Carbon Fiber Durability

    Thank you for the input. I realize I need to change my question. How does the carbon fiber age? I know it's durable, about 20 years ago I had a bike made out of carbon fiber.

    Carbon Fiber Durability

    I am wondering what is everyone's experience with carbon fiber. I am thinking of a mnandi in carbon fiber for edc. I would love to hear from sebenza users also. I plan to clip in my pocket no using the sheath. Pics would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Does CRK offer blade replacement?

    Typically I spend money after I come here, this is a rarity. I had planned to order a 2nd blade soon. I guess I will not have to decide which pattern would look best on my starbenza.
