Has there ever been anything more cringe?
It's worth 16k because idiots are willing to pay 16k for it. I can't see anything in that knife's materials that warrant such a price, regardless of the labor that went into it.
Looks ugly af to me
Pic related for knives that look good and perform well
I'm not carrying some carbon damascus steel and ball bearing pivot shit. A knife is a tool for cutting. The highest level of """"art"""" is in the highest performance
They're nice EDC knives, but I feel that you either have to be a sucker or an engineering junkie to pay that price tag for a Sebenza, especially when there are comparable or better Ti framelocks (performance-wise) for less.
I strongly disagree.
I'm not a CRK fan, but at least the design is a relatively simple and practical EDC without all of that gaudy bullshit on the OP's pic.
It's still a pretentious knife, though.
I guarantee there is upwards of 200 hours of meticulous as fuck labor involved in the creation of this ugly knife. As an amateur knife maker I make about 50 cents an hour per knife, so can be a little jelly at that, despite not caring for the over the top finishing on this one
If someone stabbed me with that I would die of embarrassment rather than blood loss.
The type of person who buys crk typically does not wear 5.11 nor is a tactical person. You want to see the type of knife the tactical guys buy? Hinderers, Medford, Strider, Grayman.
Just buy a fucking Benchmade. Sebenzas are shit teir 400 overpriced gutter trash. Or buy an Ontario rat 1. You want a good fucking knife for 30 bucks? Ontario rat 1. Literally the only knife you'll ever need. I bought the rat 1 and the only reason I bought more knives is because I wanted to.
I dunno, when I had the chance to handle one it felt sturdy as fuck. Not a fan of liner lock though, I'm more of a lockback guy
Benchmade knives are definitely quality, but don't feel quite as sturdy or long lasting, and their funky locking mechanism is not great
Sounds like you, like me, would appreciate the Buck 110. It's a classic design for a reason.
I wish the Rat 1 was a lockback; I'd definitely buy one then.
I can appreciate the labor involved, but I'm still not spending $16k on a knife. You can get awesome customs for $100 or less if you know where to look.
Keep doing what you're doing, it's people like you that improve the knife industry.

Pic related sold for $5500. Try to wrap your fucking mind around that.
None of those gear items were originally sold at those prices. The knife in your pic sells for $800 direct from the maker. It's only the retarded faggots that participate in the marking up and buying of these for thousands more than they're worth.
rate my custom gold class benchmade that cost exactly like a blue class benchmade, one of a kind
If you think this shit is 'aesthetic' I have news for you.
