I know the Sebenza is touted at the ultimate EDC by many people, but who wishes their Sebbie were flat-ground instead of hollow ground? Also, does anyone still wish they made it in BG-42 or does everyone prefer the s30v blade? Thanks.

Chris Reeve actually made some flat ground Sebenzas, but wasn't happy with the process, so he gave up on it. They rarely come up for resale.

All my Sebenzas are from the BG-52 days, so I can't compare them to the new blades.
 
So it would be safe to say that your B-52's won't be dropping anymore bombs? ;) :D :D
 
Or loud horrible music! :D

The traditional high hollow from CRK remains my best for cutting and slicing. The thicker edge of a flat grind just don' t cut it for me. :D

I have a large classic in S30V and the edge is holding up well. I haven't had it that long though. I really like hollow ground blades, they seem to cut better. sebbies are great knives though.
 
I much prefer BG 42(gotta get me one of those special runs with the BG 52 steel though!) ;) :)

But, I will force myself to "settle" for the S30V. :D
 
mine's bg42 as well....with a very special handle treatment. too bad it's not with me right now....she's getting a scary sharpening treatment....
 
I've had small Sebbies with both and I prefer S30V over BG-42. I've got to get one of those BG-52 Sebbies. How many were made? :eek: :D ;)

Flat Ground BG-42 Sebenza owner here... :cool: :D

But if I could ever luck into a hollow ground S30V bladed small woodie, I don't think I would be disapointed....

B-52...here's a recipe: :D

  • 1/3 oz. Kahlua
  • 1/2 oz. Bailey's
  • 1/6 oz. Captain Morgan

...begs to be layered in a shot glass, no ice.


Cheers, Ed! :cool: :p

Airplanes, music, drinks...what's next? :D
