    CRK sells all screws etc for their knives on their site...not sure what you need? You wanting the whole pivot? Cause it has 5 pieces total...

    Phosphorous bronze washers alternating diameter (2)

    Pivot (2 piece)

    Pivot bushing

    The one thing CRK doesn’t sell is the pivot bushing, but the screws as I remember are the same, I could be wrong on the bushing itself...just don’t recall seeing it on their site

    Thanks @~Don~, I wanted to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear! The Chi-Benza blade is a bit different then, I'd have to re-drill the pivot hole and i think I better let sleeping dogs....I'll just replace the plastic washers with the brass ones and call it a day.

    Thanks Don, I found some parts but I think the best thing for this thing is to replace the plastic washers with these https://usaknifemaker.com/washer-pb-3-16-187-inside-hole-diameter.html but the idea came to me after seeing this https://usaknifemaker.com/bushing-bronze-125-id-x-187-od-x-156-oal.html

    Looks like those would work... get some micro mesh... you can fit the washers perfectly sanding the thickness down... its what CRK does with all their knives

    Picked up a 22mm KF Lite 2019 in the Hardware section for $75 shipped! Comes with the 4ml tank extension too. Stoked!

    It'll sit nicely on my 18350 Phenom which should be here Monday!

    Last I know the Signature Tips one only allowed for the larger coils, 0.5 and 0.6.
    Dont quote me on that though.

    The SXK ones are en route from China and we're not entirely sure that the Drizzle (EUC 1.4 ohm coil heads) will fit. I'll update as soon as I get them in a couple weeks.

    Floated my idea to Peter about Dvarws... he e-mailed me back saying he will put some thought into it.

    We shall see...imo he has been open about ideas from the outside...

    Recap:

    Guaranteed List:

    Google Doc - Spits you a number -This is your placing on the Guaranteed List... Once a batch arrives you have 3 days to pay invoice... If invoice is paid, you are removed from the guaranteed list for a minimum of 21 days... to which you can add yourself again after - if you miss paying your invoice within the 3 day period, your Dvarw goes to the next person in line, and you're sent to the end of the list (Guaranteed still to get one, just have to wait longer)

    Randomizer: Small batches 20 Units or less.

    Every Friday 20+- < units randomized - You win, 3 days to pay invoice, otherwise goes to person next on the randomizer - If you win on a Randomizer you are removed from the Guaranteed List for the 21 day period - No limitation on how many Randomizers you can join.



    As mentioned before, this is an idea to get a Dvarw into the hands of all those wanting one... it has both the chance factor and the guaranteed factor covered. It will eliminate those that just had/have awful randomizer luck, and those that enjoy the pains of randomizers can still join them. Just have to wait for a batch to arrive and your placing on the Guaranteed List.

    Anyhoo ;)

    Still haven't tried the dvarw, though it seems like it would fit with my mtl needs, having to budget sooo, which clone kit would dvarw users recommend.3fvape or fasttech preferred Chinese vendors ie the ones I've used.

    This is the one I have. Cheap and comes with all the stock airflow inserts and caps. It's also interchangeable with the authentic

    Sounds good be great if can keep the list to people whom have not purchased one through his store yet.
    Give a better chance of buying new,
    And let the others use randomiser,
    The dlc ones shouldn't be far off either,

    Don’t push the pods all the way down, causes it to condensate a lot...push the pod til the lights come on and that’s far enough.

    .6s have better flavor than the 1.4s, but the 1.4s don’t use as much juice.

    They have some .8s also which is like to try

    Nice... always got a chuckle out of "Hits hard"... especially for the near 1Ω vapers ;)


    Only "Mech'ish" Device I ever owned that hit like a wet noodle was the Gooberfet... which I saw one on FB today for $80 and it didn't sell LOL

    I had the Dvarw on an AVP Lifestyle mod and by comparison the Phenom delivers more power for sure. I'm sure I'll subohm on it at some point with an 18650 to really test it out, but not any time soon.

    I mostly just like coming up with douchey ways to describe how a mod hits

    I still time to time catch myself at Kennedy’s site with the 21700 Vindicator in the cart

    Really would be a nice home mech paired with a GT4 with Nano kit

    My cloudbrocloud self comes out once in a while

    Shit might happen if Kennedy does their yearly 4th sale

    Then it won’t be such a large purchase to just stick in the drawer

    Probably won’t though....I set up my Able a bit ago with a .11 build...fucking almost passed out, no idea how I vaped like that

    There were a couple Vindicators in the Hardware section. I thought about it myself for my Gear RTA. I occasionally get cloudy with that on my Detonator. I have it built to 0.44, which is a far cry from the 1.4 ohm builds I'm rocking lately.

    Even when I was in my clouds bro phase, the lowest I ever built was 0.2 ohms. Never had any desire to go lower than that.

    It's funny how we go in circles with this vaping stuff. I just ran across one of my old-ish setups, the hohmwreker(?) and dual coil Alleria at 0.09 ohms.....just about coughed up a kidney:blech::cuss2:

    I don't really see myself changing from the Dvarw's and regulated mods... just to simple and works exactly as I need.

    I really don't know what got into me to go all cloudy... I might revisit my cloud stuff and build a mild coil set up... hell might just build one of the RDAs and slap it on the Dani and just lazy drip. nah probably not lol

    Well, just cancelled my CRK Impinda order lol


    CRK is releasing a new Sebenza


    Sebenza 31... added the stuff of the Inkosi to the Sebenza... Lock ball interface... removed the hole in the back, angled the pocket clip... made the thumb stud chamfering larger, added to the lanyard chamfer

    31 year anniversary of the Sebenza ;)


    Going to save up for one of these instead LOL


    Picks when they are available.... but Tim reeve did a FB video recently showing it.

    pricing is the same...

    Small Plain Janes starting at $375

    Large PJs at $450

    As pictured above $550


    Right now that is the current pricing of Sebenza 21/Inkosi

    Changes with custom graphics, and exclusives for certain vendors... like the BladeHQ Carbon fiber... be a tad extra... or the Wilson Combat versions +100...

    Friday... end up on CRKs site... and the selection for the Sebenza 31 will be there.

    Just not sure to order a small or large PJ... have a small Seb21 already... probably order a large... just wish they had the other blade shapes available...

    But we can order them with inlays already... all the special wood inlays or Micarta variants...

    I might wait til DLT gets it though... its really all about saving $50...


    But DLT might not get them til Xmas...which I am ok with really...

    Would be about when the knife would be ready if I ordered it...


    Through DLT, I have reward points to knock off $32, plus free shipping... so another $18

    What you're saying makes sense but I don't have any of those perks so I'll probably just order it from CRK, now to find a place reasonably close to my house where I can try them out......

    Well if you register at DLT... they give you $11 worth of points by clicking a few things for Facebook etc... and they give free shipping when its over $100... I just have a few purchases I made with them to have $32


    EDIT: CRK doesn't offer free shipping

    Recon1 in Encino or City of Industry are the only authorized dealers I know near you... Recon1 probably will have the larger selection

    Yup! Found them on line. The Encino store is closer, the Industry one is about where Jesus left his sandals from me.....
