My opinion only: Looking at all the blinged-out mokutai-timascus-damasteel-integral bodied-sculpted-clip nightmares from Blade 2018, and across the internet in general, sure makes me re-evaluate, and truly appreciate the no-nonsense Sebenza 21. For sure, there are some over-the-top CRKs out there, but even the most adorned CRK is still understated compared to what seems to be coming out of people’s garages these days. The age of homespun CNC lathes, CAD-based art knives, and exotic materials cannot make up for one missing ingredient: taste......that is what CRK has that so few others possess......taste.
