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
