When you first get into knives, it’s a major shock to the system to see just how much they can cost. We often joke about this by comparing them to what our videographer Thomas paid for his truck, but sometimes the cost is no laughing matter. A single custom handmade knife can fetch thousands of dollars; tens of thousands for something handcrafted by one of the true legends in the industry.

That would be Chris Reeve Knives, and the Sebenza original frame lock folder.
