    I'd say go with the wood inlay.. The plain ti scales tend to show their wear much sooner.. the wood will look great for years.

    If it a user-plain T1

    Shelf queen-cocobolo

    My reasoning is the plain Ti will take abuse better than the wood inlays, and is easier to refinish if desired. Also, to me its the "classic" look for the sebenza.

    Plain. Classy, tough, and will match any gear if you're into that.

    AND maybe easier to customize later on.

    It would appear that your definition of a "dire situation" and mine are different.

    Agreed. But that said, I like the wood inlay.

    I vote for plain. It has more of a utility type look.

    Wood inlay. My large seb has Snakewood inlay. The inlaid sebs definitely feel good in the hand, no matter what the inlay is. Pure class imo, and it doesn't matter if it's a user or not. You'll love the cocobolo inlay! JMO of course.
