If I Manage to stick to my New Years resolution to go the whole of this year without buying any knives or tools, a sebenza 31 will be my first purchase of 2021. Hopefully they should be in the stores by then.
Only 344 days to go
I just recently (a couple of weeks ago) took delivery of a sebenza 21 as I could not find a 31 in stock anywhere. But when I realised they were going to stop manufacturing the 21 in favour of the 31 I figured I better get a 21 while still available rather than wait for a 31.https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,50835.msg2071939.html#msg2071939 The basic plain 31 is basically a 21 with a ceramic ball embedded in the frame lock to stop it wearing with use and a slight difference in the positioning of the pocket clip (not over the frame lock).The biggest difference is in the inlaid versions as the 31s inlay is one larger slab compared to the two smaller inlays of the 21.
I love everything about them... except the price Great pics and some beauties for sure Thanks for taking the pics, Megan
True, I am sure 31 will hit the market this year, might have seen it listed already. CRK has always been enjoying high demand, they only brought out a handful models over the last few decades, I doubt we will see another model after 31 anytime soon. Maybe a small 31?
Here in the uk he won’t let you buy direct from him but directs you to his exclusive UK importer Framer Knives and there stock is limited and had no 31s last time I checked. I think they have released the new 31 in both large and small and he has sold them as quick as he can make them hence not seeing any in his usual larger US retailers. Hopefully I will be able to buy one from framer knives next year as I was bent over by uk customs when recently importing the the 21 from the US
Sorry to hear about the custom issue, maybe it's the lock that raising all the fuss. I got the Inkosi with micarta inlay, and it does make the knife feel better in hand. Hope the local dealer will stock up soon for UK market.
Thanks, I bought from DLT trading (a great retailer) and factored in the added VAT (value added tax) I knew I would have to pay when it arrived. But did not realise I would have to pay a separate customs tax on top of that. So in the end I paid quit a bit more than I would have done from framer knives. My fault entirely trying to be clever and save money buying from the States.
DLT indeed is a decent dealer(I'm not affiliated or related to them in anyway), I don't know it make any difference, but Lamnia is a pretty good dealer based in Europe which I like too.
