Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! can anyone say "insulting because they disagree with me"? FACT....the Sebenza 25 flopped because it was not made as the old Sebenza which is bushed at stop and pivot for parallel sides and excruciating fit of bushing/blade/washers (thrust bearings). FACT....it was designed to strengthen knife and simplify production/cut costs as entire front of scales designed to float while fixed in rear, eliminating need for ultra precise fit. Competition is booming because they do it that way. FACT....it was tweaked and rebranded to keep in the line because they want it there. FACT....targeted price increase on Sebenza. FACT....price increase very quietly initiated. YOU add it up, you cute little insult machine, you. I was going to leave it at having my say and being done with it, but then you have to go and be insulting. A troll who registered on this site a solid 8yrs ahead of you, friend.
