Have they done anything about longevity? The last beal cobra I had was lovely to work with but wore out in about a year. The genesis I paired it with did me for another 5.
Really? We'll I'd assume they must have. I've been using these for about 8 months now, winter and summer, and I can find exactly 1 slightly fluffed spot on one of them, it's very minor. My partner this week commented on how slick they still were.
It was a year of quite heavy use. I found the cobra beautiful to handle but the sheath just didn't seem anything like as hard wearing as some of the others.
If they have fixed that issue but kept the feel I would certainly consider them for my next pair.
Must have been a heavy year, I've had mine about 7-8 years and they are still going strong.
They're a bit fluffy in areas but have done better than a beal single that I've had for about half the time.
