    I have Five (5) carbon fiber backspacers sitting on the finish bench... fit large 21 and supposedly fit the 31 but I personally cannot confirm that.

    Will you be making the carbon fiber back spacers for the SMALL Sebenza 31?

    No plans at this time to machine a run of Small 21/31's.

    How much is the cost on the backspacers?
    Thanks.

    I've decided to no longer machine back spacers for CRK knives.

    Just my luck lol. I think a smooth, non proud red canvas micarta backspacer for my inkosi insingo would look awesome. Does anybody else do these?

    Bummer.

    I’ve been quietly holding out for a run of geared orange Umnumzaan back spacers since you shared your prototypes.

    I'm sorry to disappoint.

    The Umnumzaan spacers had too much flex due to the long cantilever arm design. G10 just doesn't have the necessary Young's modulus... i.e.... stiffness. I've explored the purchase of a CNC mill to machine them out of Titanium and timascus but that's a fiscal pipe dream.

    Thanks for the reply. :)
    It explains why the Zaan spacers never came to fruition. They sure looked cool though!
