    Finally broke down and bought another Techno. I sold mine about a year ago to fund a Hinderer, but I soon realized the Techno is, in just about every way, a better knife than a 3" XM-18.

    So, today I have corrected an error of judgement that has bugged me for some time.

    Yeah, me too.

    I found issues with the fit and finish of the XM-18. It had a lot of rough spots in the machining and the G-10 doesn't match the Ti. The XM is not a "more hard use" knife - I stepped on it an bent the Ti under the G-10. I understand that sometimes uneven grinds add character to hand ground blades, but mine looked like a blind monkey did it - the grind was very much noticeably off, and it had one of the worst pocket clips I have ever encountered… and centering the blade on the Hinderer was more involved than any knife I had ever owned - not what I would expect from a knife this price.

    I carried my Sebenza just about everyday I had the Hinderer - the Sebenza is a much higher quality knife and much sturdier - it has 2 thick Ti scales as opposed to the Hinderer's 1. If I had to choose between buying a small Sebenza and a Techno, it would be a tough call, but I think I would get the Techno because it is half the price and the differences (tolerances) are purely academic.

    Thanks for the info..
    I must say I am very happy with my Sebenza but it's also my first and only 'decent' knife, I did consider getting a Hinderer at the time but sounds like I made the right decision!!

    I just this week saw a custom mouse. Basically a techno with an insingo blade shape. Love at first sight but I still haven't dared to find a price on it.

    Yeah, I saw that odog got a green gen II. They aren't expensive from Marcin, I think around $800 - problem is, I think there are like 4 of the gen I, and only 2 of gen II.

    Hello murrydan,
    Could you provide some more info about this little FOB. Is it a Tritium one ?
    Thanks
