It appears to be a sebenza 21, by Chris Reeves. Knives are tools for me. In my camera bags I have leatherman multi-tools. In my rigs, I have emergency packs/backpacks and have various edged weapons. I am not overly dedicated to one brand, but find the benchmade knives to be good. Also have my share of gerber, buck, spyderco and coldsteel. I have different knives for different purposes.

Cheers, Steve

Remember when the Chris Reeves were affordable? Probably the same goes for my beloved Benchmades...

My current EDC is a Benchmade 530 which is small, holds an edge okay, and has my favourite locking system. It's also fast to open single-handed once you get the hang of it. No more illegal autos for me.


Big dreams, small wallet.

I just bought one of these and after you resharpen them to the potential of the D2 will you understand what kind of knife you really own. The bench made sharpening job is really not very food at all.

You will find most knife sharpening jobs are not quite perfect.
I am a massive spyderco nut - I have around 60 of them.
Most have slightly uneven primary bevels due to the hand sharpening done on them (with a belt sander and buffer at the factory)

Although I have never done it, I understand the D2 is a pain to reprofile - it is supposed to take a great edge, lose a bit fairly quickly, then hold an average edge forever.

I love spydercos VG10 - it's easy to resharpen, and holds an edge pretty well

Goes well with my usual daily attire of dress pants/slacks/suit.

Thankfully, Midway USA carries Benchmade and I have a dealer discount with them (typically 25% off MSRP).

Ron, you must be a big Emerson collector.
I have a Viper 1. Do you have any idea what
that knife is selling for today? Very big bucks.

I know! This is only my second custom. I got it in the Emerson Lottery at the USN Gathering in Las Vegas this past weekend.

Cool Youtube video of a guy making a knife out of a railroad spike

check it out HERE (external link)

That was very cool. And I just collected a bunch of railroad spikes recently. I gave them to a friend who is an iron worker and asked him just to shine them up. Now that gives me a whole new idea.

I just emailed him the link. Thanks.

HAHA...after I saw that video I did the same. I have no idea when I will find the time to make knifes but I am looking forward to it.

Post some pics of your spikes them when you get a chance.

This is all I've done with them Link

I made one using the stock removal technique. Very rewarding.
