I recently bought a small 21 and traded into another knife within 48 hours. I feel like something is wrong with me but I had more trouble operating it than I have had with any other knife I have owned. And it was not super comfortable in hand.

It was beautiful with Spalted Beech inlays. Maybe I need to try a large for my uncoordinated fingers. People told me it will break in but for the price I guess I expected it to work great from the start.

I feel like the only person on this forum that is not a fan of the Sebenza (at least the small one). Like I said something is probably wrong with me:(

Dont feel bad...i love my large 21’s, but the small 21 is just too small and uncomfortable in my hand too.
On the other hand...CRK nailed it on the Ti-Locks. :)

Ps. Nice collection @woodysone

I've never held a crk in my hands, but based on pictures I'm not a huge fan of the sebenza. I have my eyes on a large inkosi in the future. I don't think I'll ever own a sebenza unless the price is too good to pass up.

I had a chance to hold the small 21. Also not a fan of it. The large 21, inkosi and umnumzaan are totally different. But some will never like any CRK. And that fine. There is literally thousands of knives to pick from.

Maybe we should start a thread for just us pif-ers. Something like
PIF-ERS just talking shop.
Or something like that. So we can clean up this thread and make it more of what its meant to be.

Ha - it was pretty quiet and straight forward until you South paw draw South paw draw , showed up :rolleyes: :D

OK - let's have a PIF Porch. Great idea really :thumbsup: I think of poor JupiterPaladin JupiterPaladin needing to read through all these extra pages of chatter to try to keep the list straight. Give the man a break. ;)

You're not the only one. I always thought the way people rave about them that I was missing something. I don't dislike them I just think their kinda plain I guess.

I'm a first time poster on the PIF thread but I follow this thread pretty religiously lol. I saw bikerector bikerector put up that Muk. I know StrangeDaze StrangeDaze is getting it but if StrangeDaze StrangeDaze throws it back on here I'd like to throw my hat in the ring I have a few good PIF knives to put up.

If you are looking for something in the size range, or +/-, I will be dropping a few over the next few months to give me space for some other stuff I've decided I want to start working on. Feel free to post on my profile or email me, c (dot) rector at live.com and I'll see if I have something you would like and we can throw it into the pot, or work out something. I have a bunch of stuff I bought for "research", aka just because it looked interesting. Now I'm trying my hand at designing my own.

Please remove my offer #35 for the handle scales and stuff. Just read the guidelines and it looks like it falls under “ain’t”.
I offered them up without claiming anything for them so it should be fine.

That's strange as they are more knife related than other things I've seen on the list, such ass headphones, and electronics and shit. I think your offering is quite appropriate for a knife forum.
