Good points...and yea I do agree about having to be careful on the secondary markets...Blerv wrote:If you like the Sebenza concept (aesthetic and design philosophy) I would grab one. You can buy 2 or 3 Spydies but most people only carry a knife, maybe two at once. My brother has a couple CR's, a large and small Insingo and I've changed my mind on them completely. It's a solid tool even if it doesn't hold an edge like a Spyderco with Unobtainium_01 steel.
I personally ended up scrounging some money and buying a semi-custom from Kingdom Armory, a mini Samaritan. Similar to the Small Sebbie concept and built like a tank. It's prob my favorite folder at this point but I have to think some of that is the cost alone and knowing it's a small-scale project. That and I respect what David Rydbom does as a maker.
Cutting videos are overrated (IMO). If you use a tool and sharpen it when it gets dull it should accomplish a reasonable amount of work. When was the last time you had to fill three trashbags with cardboard scraps just to punch out for the day?
Note: I totally respect Spencer's opinion but second hand has to be done with an ounce of care. There are ton of fakers out there and nothing hurts like dropping $300 for a knife that isn't as expected.
Yes, and yes again.RanCoWeAla wrote:Before I bought a Sebenza I would have to ask myself two questions because I'm anything but rich. First would I be able to sell that thing and get my money back if I got into a jam financially and second if I got into financial trouble would I hate myself for having $500 sunk into a pocket knife.
I like the way you think sir!3rdGenRigger wrote:I've contemplated the same thing, but I always end up buying two or three Spyderco folders instead.
