The Story So Far: Tough match-ups all around: both multi-tool winners barely squeaked by their brethren by a matter of votes; even the Mighty Sebenza had a bit of a scare, defeating the Benchmade 940 by a 54-46 split. Biggest upset goes to the #4 seed Kershaw Leek, which toppled the #1 Cold Steel Bushman with nearly 70% of the votes. (How far can the little guy go?). My office pool pick, the ParaMilitary2, is still alive and kicking, but does it have the support to take out the expensive and exceptional Sebenza? We’ll soon find out.
