Lignum Vitae, the wood of life, is a very important symbolic wood and tree in many cultures. In this case, it is just a beautifully finished scale on one of the nicest production gentleman’s folders on the market, the CRK Mnandi. The Lignum is a less common version of this knife, but not entirely rare.

The Chris Reeve Ti-Lock was introduced in 2010, as a collaboration between Grant and Gavin Hawk and Chris Reeve. This knife went on to win the Blade Show 2010 Overall Knife of the Year and really highlighs both the G&G Hawk as well as CRK heritage in its design.
I am a big fan of Chris Reeve Knives.. and of all the Chris Reeve Knives (CRK) fixed blades out there, the Pacific has got to be my favourite, with the Green Beret coming in a close second. The Pacific has a fantastic finishing and looks as well as great feel and balance in the hand, which can sometimes be hard to find all in the same knife.
The CRK Umnumzaan is probably one of the most awaited knives of the last few years, with all the production problems causing a delay in new stock and consequently causing secondary market prices to rise, this knife is not easy to get a hold of. I received one in a trade and had a chance to carry it a bit and use it… It is indeed a very nice knife.
I’ve owned a few Chris Reeve Knives (CRK) Sebenzas in my day, and have watched them go from ATS-34 Steel to BG42 and then CPM-S30V. I’ve also owned one of each in the past, and had the pleasure of carrying and using all three of them. The two models shown here are in BG-42 (Unique Graphic) and S30V (Regular), and are of the regular configuration (Not Classic).
Is there a more revered knife than the legendary Sebenza? You’d think it was Excalibur the way people talk about this thing! With perfect fit and perfect finish, why shouldn’t they? The Sebenza is probably the most perfectly built knife out there, bar none. Whether or not it’s the best knife is a matter of personal preference, however.
The Shadow III is my first One-Peice fixed blade from CRK. I’ve handled several of them before at knife shows and peices that belonged to friends, and none of them really interested me until now. I received this knife as part of a trade, and wow, has it grown on me!
