i dont require the kind of precision that reeve demands of his knifes, and hes constantly buying more machines (many of which are very custom) so his prices are very high.


also the design of the sebenza does not really do it for me for a knife in that category.

id much rather have a microtech socom.

i think the spyderco southard, domino, etc are more my cup of tea. i also like the zt 0561.

zt and benchmades are very poor in my eyes compared to chris reeves and spyderco.

zt knives are very rough, and each one is different in some small way.
benchmade knives are well built but i do not like knives that shake open.

zt on the otherhand cant get the detent right, i had to remove one in one knife while another was basically not present, its a crap shoot.

however spyderco from their cheapest byrd, to the chinese value knives like the resilience (best value tactical folder imho) to their high end knives have excellent detents.

the para II or any knife with their compression lock is a great example of a knife withoit fixed detent that STAYs CLOSED!

so cmon benchmade, make me a knife that wont shake open!


on my current want list is the spyderco lionspy and spyderco positron

I've had my Sebenza for a few years and think very highly of the knife. It is built like a vault---extremely solid! More solid than any other folder I've owned. The blade holds an edge and the size fits my hand rather well. If there is anything I would say negatively or that I would change, is that the titanium handles are a little too smooth for my taste. It is my EDC about 50% of the time. The other half is a Spyderco Manix2.

Has been mentioned about the high cost but I believe in crying once if I can swing it. You can say I like Chris Reeve knives!

Thanks for response. Agreed it is a bit highend but can appreciate the level of qaulity. I like it.. I have many quality straight knives and usually carry an old spyderco that i have dressed deer with. Lot of quality out there for less$, but i like good stuff. Like the frame lock and the recessed clip mounting and servicability of the design. There are as many opinions out there as there makers and models. Think that is as should be. Thanks again!!
