Chris Reeve Knives describes this item as follows:

The Sebenza is 21 years old!

Who would have thought back in 1988 that Chris’s titanium handle folder would become a legend in the industry! Constant attention to design details and an unwavering commitment to quality in every aspect of the knife has created the Sebenza as a hallmark of excellence. To mark this amazing milestone, we are planning to make some changes to the lineup of Sebenzas.

We are going to stop making almost all Regular profile Sebenzas. The profile on the Classic will change slightly and this version will be known as Sebenza 21.

The design change on Sebenza 21 gives a more pronounced chamfer on the pivot edge of the handle allowing the knife to be inserted more easily into a pocket or sheath. The engraving of "Classic MM" on the back of the Classic Sebenza will be eliminated, making differentiation of the two models easy! The blade shape remains the same.

Micarta Inlays
Because we have found most customers choose the micarta inlay as a working knife, S35VN blades are tumbled and the handles are sandblasted. Silver thumblug and spacer round out this hardworking functional model.

A simple beauty
The eternal discusion about this knife is if it's worth the price and what is that makes this a so coveted knife among collectors. Sebenza knifes are the "Rolex" of the knife industry as they have extraordinary quality reputation, consistent design along the years, proprietary manufacturing technology, but most important...they have SOUL. Are the Rolex the best watches in the world? Of course not, but people keep buying them for the reasons I mentioned before. Now, another eternal discussion is if the 21 is better than the 25. My personal opinion is that the 25 is way better knife than the 21 in all asprcts, nevertheless 21 owners which already have fallen in love with their twenty ones have to defend their purchase as they don't find a specific reason for an update unless they want to build a Sebenza collection. Is the 21 a EDC? Yes althoug a Small Sebenza 21 can be more portable. If you collect knives and you still don't own a Sebenza, you have to buy this particular knife as its value will increase in time. If you just want to have the best Sebenza, buy the 25.

CRK Sebenza 21 Micarta.
The Sebenza has the best fittings and screws that I have seen used on a folding knife. I have stripped and rebuilt the knife several times and I feel like I could do this several hundred more times without any problems. Also, there is a pivot bushing so that the blade can only possibly have one tension setting which is perfect every time and remains the same. The blade retention is also just the right balance between ease of opening and safety in the pocket. There are some areas that I think the knife could do with improvement. The thumb lug is pointed and tends to be uncomfortable to use. Jimping on the top of the blade has little traction in comparison to the highest quality found in this area, such as Spyderco jimping. The handle is not as ergonomic as the best Emersons, Benchmades or Spydercos. Overall the quality is far greater than the three above mentioned companies and IMHO is well worth the extra money...
