    What's the rarest CRK knife you own? If your initials are LW or you're from England, then list the rarest 3 CRKs you own :)

    Bonus points for pics!

    Define rare. Rare as in limited pieces, rare as in one of a kind like a custom UG or rare as in Damascus steels that are no longer offered.

    Great to see that Vallatton video!

    My two cents: “rare” ought to mean hard to find and acquire today. As a practical matter, that will likely take into account the number produced, how long ago they were made, how many still exist, how desirable they are in the CRK community, and so on.

    Example: LW’s river of fire trio is rare; an ordinary UG is not.

    Nothing too exotic for me. As my knives are users I usually stay to pretty standard things...

    Only 2 may be worth noticing:
    a large Inkosi KA CF with number 60 (first 100 were numbred).
    a large 21 with ladder damascus that I ordered directly from CRK with Silver hardware.

    I guess this is pretty rare. Obviously it's stamped 3 but the previous owner stated it was the only one left in existence. Who knows but there ain't many..... Ulu with giraffe bone scales.

    Cocobola classic with B&W fireball Damascus. I’ve found a pic of one other CRK with it, and have been told it’s quite uncommon. 345F476E-C94F-4C6C-B06E-7D09E092E95E.jpeg

    ^ Nice Umfaan, clark-kentski! I have been searching one for years, but I am always a day late. Or (even more often) a dollar short!

    Great pictures of 3. Besides it and 21, are any others still in circulation?
