Today we have brands like Reate, Olamic, We , etc selling knives north of $300 , and we're still discussing the "worth" of a Sebenza ? At inception and to this day, the Sebenza is a limited production , hand made knife, purchased once and meant to last a lifetime. It was intended to be a user for those who wanted an indestructible knife, easy to maintain, light weight and easy to carry. It's the Buck 110 of titanium framelocks. If it doesn't fit your criteria, then it's not for you and not worth it. I have folders from every major brand and I would trade any of them in multiples, for a CRK knife.
