ThePundit - I love my griptillian, and am thinking of getting something new to carry while in a suit- the grip is too obvious on the pocket.
just looked at that sebenza, and while I am sure it is nice, I cant justify that much for a blade. Seems crazy to me
I'll agree it's high. But couple things that help it's value a bit
1) they hold their value. A buddy has a Benchmade 9100 Auto Stryker. Was $245 new. Can buy for $100 or do now. And it's a damn fine knife. A CRK is about same cost used as new, and some models more used if discontinued.
2) their quality is top notch. Look at my pictures on page prior. Almost no room between blade and grip. Very high tolerance
3) materials. That's a titanium handle and S35VN steel. Expensive and high quality.
4) the Sebenza has been bar that almost every folding knife has been judged against for 26 years now. CRK constantly and consistently wins awards for highest quality.
They certainly are not for everyone. That's a serious price tag attached. But if decide to get can sale with little to no loss if dislike and if love you'll have a world class knife.
Like Alto said few pages back a knife like that if he made would be $500-600. And I have a knife by Alto with 3 more in the way.
