I'm feeling the pull of a nice knife. I've read a lot about the Chris Reeve Sebenza, and it seems to have inspired quite a following. Looks sturdy and useful, but I'm having a hard time brining myself to pony up $300+ for a pocket knife.

Any Sebenza owners out there? Regrets that you bought one? Regrets that you didn't buy two :smile:?

Next question, large or small?

The guys that have them seem to love them. I don't own one, but I have a hard time with the price as well. My Benchmades are just as tight, and at 1/3 the price, I have no reason to switch. I think you are paying an extra $150.00 - $200.00 for the final fit and finish - which apparently is very nice however.

I think I would be a little hestitant to use a $300.00 + knife for some of the chores I wouldn't hesitate to use my Benchmades (or $50.00 Spydercos!) for!

Chad,
I would buy one right now, the large Sebenza is a fantastic knife.

I have owned the same one for about six years.
I have cut, hammered, and pryed with this knife constantly.
It is silky smooth and has always held up extremely well.

The design is great in the hand and Chris has refinished/resharpened the knife several times.

It is a very good knife and quite honestly I believe Chris should charge more money for the Sebenza.

I have seen and handled these. Very fine knife. It is the old argument over Kimber or Vickers (et al), Rolex or Seiko. I am sure a $50 Spyderco will do the same job put it doesn't have the gee whiz factor. Style and function or just function. More importantly do you want to spend another $250 for the style?

good luck

Absolutely. Other non production folding knives could hardly be found at that kind of price. Also, the Sebenzas are very solid and well made. The frame lock design is excellent.
