330 $ is not a bad price. Might have it partially serrated though.

Yours is the standard one, right?.. I don't want any wood or other crap on it. Damascus blade is tempting but pointless seeing as I will use it for work. Or doesn't it affect that?..

I actually have one with blue calf inlays. My small sebenza is my dress carry knife.

I'm not a big fan of serrations. They're a pain to sharpen. A properly sharpened knife will cut through rope just as efficiently

The damascus crk uses is devin thomas damascus. Its the best in the business. Damascus has its pluses and minuses. But basically, its just for looks. Any cutting advantage is nominal and disproportionately small compared to the price. S30V is a great steel for a knife

And I think most people prefer the ones with a micarta inlay for a work knife. It adds grippiness. Its not worth the added thickness for me though

Still on the fence about the measurements, even of that small Sebenza. 17 cm opened = 5 cms too big for me... He probs doesn't do custom work?..  ::)

Yep, 2" blade. 5" total length. Just like my Pro-Tech Stinger.

Benchmade 943... sadly recently stolen. Am fiending like a mofo for a chris reeve sebenza...

Awesome choice! I got my first Sebbie years ago, and that led to a small sebbie with blue calfskin inlays, then an Umnumzaan, then a Profeessional Soldier, and then a rare Nkonka...Chris Reeve is a nice chunk of my knife collection

The Sebenza is one of a handful of knives I would never let go though. That being said, I've been carrying my Umnumzaan for months

Yup! I'm not much of a collector anymore of knives, more like a user

I think the last time I saw you was at Vegas Classic four years ago when I was working for Rick Hinderer

Yeah, I was just about to say, I remember meeting you then. I remember that I wanted to buy that Hinderer Knives thong for my wife, but you already had dibs on it ;)

I still collect more than I use, but I definitely use more now than I did back then. The collection has gotten a little smaller and more focused over the years, too.

I have a handful of customs...one from RJ, one from Rick...and a bunch of fixed blades from Hossom/Brum/Krein...I really just have a bunch of users these days from CRK. I remember your sick collection...you're my knife hero
 
My ex still has that thong!!!

That Benchmade/Sibert is really tempting me these days though...crazy that a production knife is that nice...

Thanks Beatle! Means a lot comin' from one of you contestants :).
Have been considering giving the jeans their first wash... not so much due to cleanliness issues but due to the fact that I wear the knees out so much that it looks kind of uneven with the rest of the fading and I'm wondering if It'll even out a bit in the wash. I'm quite open to input on this - has anyone else washed theirs? This dye seems pretty fugitive.


Hey, USN dudes! I used to lurk there too. Am... am actively considering a CRK Insingo (http://www.knifeart.com/insingo.html ). I've owned two benchmade 921's (the switchback, since discontinued) one in D2 and one in s30v... Love the wharnecliffe. That or an Ikoma guardian balisong, but edcknives has been slow lately.

I heard the pivot action on the Insingo is really dialed in, and considering it's a CRK, that's saying A LOT
