    What CRKs have you sold or gifted to the next person (or, Heaven forbid, lost or stolen)?

    I currently have 19 CRKs. I have possessed 41 CRKs at one time or another. Some of the ones that I passed on were ones I thought I would love but decided they were not for me. With others, it was just time to let someone else enjoy it. And others were due to needing cash :(.

    What have you once had and let go?

    Here are a few of mine with more to follow:

    Small and Large Micarta Insingos

    The only one I really miss. I never would've parted with it had it been stainless Damascus.

    I had a ā€œPā€ Sebenza. Don't remember what I sold it for but I regret it. This is a bad picture I found.

    I feel like such a slacker. I have bought and sold only two CRKs. One was a small plain Insingo and the other was a small Starbenza from Wilson Combat.

    I never really connected with those knives. The third time was a charm with my Mnandi. Bocote wood inlays and I could not be happier.

    My three Macassar Ebonies. It hurt to let these go, personal favorites. This was before CRk started making Macassar available again....

    I have let a lot go to new homes, and regret quite a few of those! Ones right of the top of my head that hurt are a 99 annual and a small 95 regular that I sold. The CRK that I no longer have that hurts the most is the 06 small regular that accidentally got thrown away!!

    Here are some I've let pass to others. I don't think I've owned any super duper grail worthy CRKs but probably the most notable and beautiful was this 2007 Large 21 Desert Ironwood Classic. It was just beautiful. And it was mint, absolutely mint when I got it from the original owner.






    There have been others. By my count 17 have come and gone.
