    Who here collects sets and what sets have you completed and what are you looking to complete?

    I completed a set of small sebenzas recently (small P, small BG42 regular, small classic, small 21). I saw LW completed a set of annuals recently!

    What led you to the specific set you are collecting? Which is or was the hardest to get to complete the set? Pics get a double like! :)

    Been trying to get the knife in my sig for years to complete a 4-some.

    I have other sets, like the Annuals from each year. I previously had a Mnandi from each year of production. I have a set I call Air, Land, and Sea. Night Sky's, Morning Sun, Solar System, CGG's Solar Winds and Moonsong, etc. I have another set I call Patriotic, with a subset, American Flags. I also have some trilogies of a few different inlays. I've got a few righty-lefty pairs, including a pair of numbered Mnandis.

    I'm looking for any CGG/UG/Annual Regulars, prefer large models.

    I also like to complete trilogies of exceptional wood inlays, this was my first.

    I have two plans in mind - one I will know for sure about after I talk to Tim R. on Monday.

    I've thought about going after every variant of Inkosi, but it would tie up too much of my knife money and there are so many other CRKs and knives from other brands that I want. Also there are some that there were only a handful of. I'll probably end up with most "in production" ones as part of my user rotation in time though.

    Ironwood set, not in the traditional picture format since I'm waiting for a block of the stuff to show up at my door.

    I previously owned my "Wilson Trifecta" (Wilson 21, 25 and Umnumzaan) but ended up selling them off for one reason or another.

    I also have a Trio of Micarta knives (Tanto, Insingo and Clip Point) but sold off my clip point for lack of pocket time.

    I'd like to complete a set of Snakewood inlays as I found a Mnandi with a birthday matching that of the day my wife and I started dating but i'm afraid I'd never carry the small/large Sebenzas so I've held off.

    Currently working on a collection of 21’s. A fair variety of different incantations. And “reasonably” priced. But also have a Regular; Umnum; and a 25. Will probably add an Inkosi and Ti Lock, so also have a “collection” of non 21 CRK folders.

    Also my highest resale value CRK is the S Africa made Jereboam I purchased in 1984(?). And actually used it in deep woods camping. Who knew back then I could sell it way in the future for around ten times it’s original cost. Crazy, man

    I worked on a set of small annuals for several years, but could never get a 2000. After I finally gave up and sold some of them off, one came up for sale:mad:
