    The Idaho marking they added, a standard ambidextrous thumb stud they didn’t.....

    I don’t mind the Idaho mark, I do wish ambi studs was standard.

    The Made in Idaho stamp is the reason that I bought my first CRK. For awhile, I was a resident of Idaho and the implication that Idaho is a separate country appealed to my sense of humor.

    I have some knives with and without it. And I’m fine with both.

    I love it as well but am biased. I work ten minutes from Chris Reeve, know a few employees there and picked up my first Sebenza this year directly, twenty minutes after they sharpened and boxed it up. It was still warm...

    Hit me up about doing an inside job burglary on their factory. ;)

    I’m kidding obviously.

    I think this might have bothered me kind of maaaybe, for about ten minutes or so. Can't really remember now... now that I think of it, It may not have bothered me at all. Yeah, I have a badass sebenza on my hip. I just remembered that

    I think anything related to having a CRK would count as a first world problem. ;)

    Honestly any state of the USA on there makes me feel good. Proud it’s on there.

    If given the option I would have opted for one without the stamp. I like clean and minimalist when I can get it. Don't even like brand logos. I think a small laser etch on the blade akin to what Spyderco does would have been fine. That said I own a stamped small 21 so it can't bother me that much...

    Absolutely could care less one way or the other. Never pay any attention to it honestly.

    I just wish they would use a different font that doesn't look like Comic Sans.

    I don't really care about it. If I would make this a criteria for buying/not buying it would restrict me a lot during collecting. Seems that there was kind of transition period where you could get Sebenza 21 without "Idaho Made" and with old screws and I must say that this combination is pretty nice.

    I do like the 21s without the stamp just because you don’t see them as often. Less common stuff appeals to me. What I really like to see though is the “Classic MM” stamp. That’s what I watch for.

    No stamp...Classic MM...Idaho Made

    Classic MMs...the best IMHO
