    In keeping with the new direction this thread is heading and combined with the fact it helped me pick my first Sebenza, I've renamed this thread and encourage others to post pictures of their first Sebenza (or their first CRK folder/fixed blade)! Have at it! Let's see those beauties!

    I have been into knives for a while and never got a CRK until this week. I have grown a bit tired of flippers and wanted to add a thumbstud to the collection and figured CRK is the best way to go. So I got both the Large 21 Enigma and a Large 21 CF Insingo. After breaking it in, I am really starting to see what people rave about it. I am really liking the action and the vault feel.

    Now, I need to figure out if I want an Inkosi, Umnumzaan, or a Mnandi. I am leaning towards an Umnumzaan but I think I'll be lurking in this sub for a while till I decide on my next one...

    My 1st CRK was the Shadow III OPK. I was wanting a hollow handle survival knife that would carry easier than my buck 184. I had never spent this much on a knife, so finally took the plunge after reading up on them on this very “new” internet thing. eBay was in It’s infancy. I seen they were selling at close to new prices used, so figured I didn’t have much to lose. I took the plunge and bought the Shadow III for $175. A couple weeks later I bought the Tanto I. After acquiring a dozen or so OPK over the next few years, I thought if I liked the fixed blades so much, wonder how I would like the folders. My 1st CRK folder was a Large Regular in BG42.

    I still have both.

    Great shot GG, I love all of the texture. :thumbsup:

    Funny, for some reason I pictured your first to be a UG with gorgeous Devon Thomas Damascus blade... That is an elegant first one and I'm glad to see it looked as well used and loved as my first does. I still carry and use my small plain Jane 21 the most.


    I really love the puzzle piece one.
