    Hello guys, THANK YOU so much for your information, especially those who have created this thread... The CRK is a passion that unites us.. Nyefmaker, can I ask you a question? In your timeline I have not seen information on Freyja (I think it's written correctly, or Freijia), in my opinion one of the most beautiful OPK.... You have some information? Year of production, etc.. Thank you very much

    I have a BG42 large regular that has the old style clip. Anyone know when they changed to this old style on the Large regular BG42 to the new style pocket clip?

    Creoson if you take the knife apart and take a few pictures of the blade around the pivot and the inside of the scales it will help you date the knife. There should be a date code inside the scales... you could even see those without taking it apart. Post up the photos and I am sure we could narrow it down for you.

    I believe it was sometime in the early 2000's. I beleive the option was available still in the early 2000's as I had some with the older clip in 01-02. Still do.
    Possibly it wasnt offered unless you requested it in these times?
    Hopefully someone knows for sure and gives a definite answer.

    Does any one know more about the Original Sebenza? How can you differentiate it from P series when P Sebenza without P marking from 1994 to 1995?
    What is the meaning of having this series? Or is it an official series for CRK? Thanks for sharing!

    The P was to indicate that Sebenzas were now Production, instead of Handmade. The first few hundred had numbers. P1, P2, etc. After that, they just had the P for a while without the number. Shortly after that, CRK dropped the P altogether, but the design of the knife didn't change until 1996 when the design we call the Regular was released. All Originals were made with ATS-34 steel.
