I agree with you on the under-recognized value, I have the same view on the Three Sister Forge "beast". I keep reading great reviews on the sebenza, but I say to myself "it cant be that great". I get two benefits out of this mentality; first, i get to keep looking at knives that I "think" are better or just as good and buying them adding them to my collection, second I will need to buy a Sebenza one day to compare it to my thoughts on better or as good knives. Its a win win, and my mind is at ease, and thats all that matters!!
