Say what you will about it, I still think it's waaaay too overpriced for a production knife.

No, I'm sure it's good quality no doubt about that, but the price is custom territory, not production.

FYI, I was handed a Sebenza by Dunc at the UK meet last year.  He said nothing about it (price etc) and I knew nothing about the Sebenza at all.  I fell for it big time and even after finding out the price still wanted one as IMO it was worth it.  There was no hype involved at all.

All I'm saying is that before you make a claim about something being overpriced, you should actually use or at least hold the product beforehand.  I think you'd be surprised.

I have and I agreed with its owner that it's overpriced. MOF, the owner said he loved it but wouldn't buy another one. I'm not knocking anyone who owns one but I just don't get the WOW that others get. Sometimes I do see the utter simplistic beauty in a Sebenza, but usually it's just plain-Jane to me. I've got knives with better ergonomics, comparable lockup, build, and steel, yet cost a lot less.

So anyone else invested in a Sebbie recently?

I have gone back to using a pocket clip again and so far so good.

I thought about putting my pocket clip back on mine this morning but decided against it . I like the flat feel of the Sebbie without the clip and deep pocket carry is the only option for a knife thats worth that much , I've heard one or two stories about Sebbies being lost due to the clip working its way out , mostly when sitting down .

Sadly that's the risk with any pocket clip, however, I have often found it down the back of the sofa where, due to the lack of any clip, it has just fallen out of my pocket.  It certainly feels more chunky with the clip though.  Not sure if I prefer that or not yet.

Can't say that I ever will to be honest. Far too much money for something that would be confiscated if I dared venture out with it.

Not that I don't see the appeal, they are lovely knives.
I used to come here a lot.

Yes, I 've been hanging round the other place! The large Sebbie is a surprising amount bigger than the small one, but that just means there's more to love. It fits my hand really well and cuts stuff effortlessly. It's an important part of my end of the world arsenal  ;)

I think they numbered the early production runs, so this is quite an oldie.

I'm thinking it wouldn't have the P because it has the number.

It looks a bit more rounded and "softer" in areas than mine. Might be nicer to hold.

I think Ben's got it right Dunc. I've obviously had it apart and there are no stampings inside the handles. I've had a good look over on Bladeforums and I haven't found much info on these numbered ones. But just having a number must add to the pose factor, eh Mike?  :D I like it a lot more than the small one I had previously, and although a lot bigger it sits well in my pocket.

Joking aside, they are deservedly a cult knife :)
