Cool, you always come through. Will order a lg Sebenza from Plaza in the meantime. Btw I don't carry a knife unless there is a need which is rare. My main use for a self-defense knife, is working out with my partner. Slashing 1.5" and thrusting 4" of corrrogated paper from varying positions is pretty eye opening.
Are you cool with buying used? I could probably save you $40-50 by scouring USN for a pre-owned piece? Half the people who buy one are too afraid to buy it. I can give you my login info if you want to browse the forum for yourself.
Thats kind of BS considering it was engineered to have the best durability and cutting geometry, and it's probably one of the most plain knives you can purchase.
