    I pull it apart whenever I feel it needs it, if it has ridden in my pocket for a few months I won't bother, if I use it somewhere that will get it nasty I will pull it apart....it was used to cut an ice dream cake not too long ago so I've decided it needs it

    I'll get some more pictures sometime today for you

    Sold a couple knives to pay for some of this lol... I held my FFL dealers (also friend's) Sebenza 21... And I was like this is a gorgeous and well built knife... I'm not saying that its the end all be all knife but I can see the craftsmanship involved... So I picked up Sebenza 25

    I really don't like you right now

    How do you like it compared to the 21?

    I love my 21 and want to get my hands on a 25

    I'm assuming you're the same EZ Bake from OSA? This one is the AREA 10. I bought the second one of maybe 5-10 made. He discontinued the AREA 10, and is now making one called WHISKEY 2. I'm actually about to get a WHISKEY 2. They are selling like hot cakes. If you have a Facebook, he is listed as Coye Knives. He posts up his knives on a regular basis

    I'm hating myself right now for the amount I paid haha... But this thing has got some amazing workman ship... I really love how the frame lock really LOCKS in the blade and how smooth the pivot is... For me when I held the 21 and 25 and I think a few other people who own Chris reeves knives have said the same thing... Is the added finger groves in the handle gives you more comfortable and possible a stronger hold (not sure if that's all true about the second part lol) on the knife... I couldn't believe how hard it was to find but I found it on truenorthknives.com ... Ordered it weds and got it today and that was standard shipping too!!!

    Ya, since it came out not too long ago, it has been hard to find the 25s because of demand. I was kicking myself a bit over what I paid for mine too...carry it for a few months and you won't regret buying it lol

    I bought mine to use and I use it. The titanium feels a lot more comfortable after the rough texture from bead blasting wears off, it is a little smoother, and much more comfortable, it also takes an interesting wear pattern

    Hell yea man... I'm not a firm believer in pay a shit ton of money for something and not getting my money's worth out of it... It's so smooth upon opening... My biggest plus about both my strider and Sebenza is that the frame lockup is amazing.. I Mean this blade will not move for shit... And you notice that more with the higher end knives... I have also notice now the significance of "jimping" pretty amazing if ya ask me... Lol

    I like the jumping on my sebenza, it's not too much like on some knives, it's just enough

    Have you taken your 25 apart yet?

    I also admit I'm starting to become a real fan of the Framelock... Although there is nothing wrong with my ZT, Emerson, or spiderco their is something about that consistent lock over a liner lock...

    No I haven't taken it apart... Should I??? Since I just got it???

    First thing I did was take mine apart...just because I wanted to see all the pieces etc...

    Don't really need to though, they are designed to be able to take them apart for cleaning etc...

    The CRK grease is awesome as well. In about to take mine apart to clean it, I will post some pictures of it apart. They are really simple to take apart. A bit of warning though. When you tighten the screws back, don't do it to right, especially the pocket clip screw, I torqued mine a little too much and snapped the head off of it, which CRK fixed for me

    Cool good to know man thanks... Yea I like how they appeal to the user in simple disassembly and care of the knife...

    How is the pocket clip for you... When keeping it in the pocket... Is their much movement..???

    Disassembly is a breeze, is watch a couple of YouTube videos on it, makes it even easier lol

    [​IMG]

    The pocket clip on mine stays put and doesn't move around too much. That being said, I have caught it on things and bent it out causing it to be very loose. I would recommend taking the clip off and just bending it back if you bend it out (I caught mine on a couch).

    And on a side note, I forgot how smooth these are after cleaning

    No problem, I'm a sucker for CRK, I love my large 21, but I am getting the feeling that I would like a large regular or large 25 better....I need to find some in my area to try lol

    I'd check blade forums, they should have some good answers for ya (good thing ya didn't send it in without finding that out lol)

    Do you have an ultrasonic cleaner by chance? That might work. You could also try pulling it apart yourself since you can't send it back (I don't know how complex the autos are)

    One of the dental sprayers would work too I would think.

    If it were me I would find a friend with the right credentials lol
