Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! For the last year or so, I've been perfectly content collecting and using production knives, primarily from Benchmade, Spyderco, and Zero Tolerance. However, evey so often I'd come across a photo of a gorgeous Sebenza which would repeatedly make me want to take "the next step" in this hobby of folding pocket knives. Lately, while I still enjoy my blades, I've been lusting after the highly touted Sebenza (and Inkosi) more and more. I think it's finally gotten to the point now where I'm just going to see what all the fuss is about and snag one for myself! I have a couple questions though. Seeing as I like to use all my blades (no "safe Queens" here!), I was wondering how well do the CCG Sebenzas wear? I really like the looks of some of the CCG models, but if I'm after a user, would I be significantly better off sticking with a plain Jane model or something with a wood or micarta inlay, or do the scales on the CCG models hold up reasonably well?
