CRKSEB21SM: Small Sebenza 21, Micarta
Chris Reeve Knives
 
The folding knife that has become the yardstick against which others are compared, the Sebenza has earned a worldwide reputation for rock solid performance and a "bank vault" feel. It is the standard.

Chris developed the first Sebenza in 1987 and the profile has experienced minor changes over the years. After the entirely handmade version came the Original profile in 1990, the Regular in 1996, the Classic in 2000, and eventually, in 2008, the 21st year of the Sebenza, Chris Reeve introduced the Sebenza 21.

Designed for lifetimes of use, the Sebenza 21 was carefully developed to improve upon its predecessors. With every iteration, we seek to improve strength and longevity, while still maintaining the sleek profile and simplicity of the iconic Sebenza.

Whether plain with a tumbled or "stonewashed" S35VN blade and sand blasted handles or embellished with a polished satin or Damascus blade, wood inlay or lavish graphics, each Sebenza is individually fitted to the closest tolerances. All Sebenzas are available in Large or Small, and dedicated Right or Left handed for the fullest user experience.

Inlaid Models

Bridging the gap between hi-tech titanium and the organic feel of natural material is the Sebenza 21 with inlay. Available with a choice of woods, each piece fits exactly into one of three pockets machined into the handle—two on the front and one on the back. For those who prefer all hi-tech, they also offer inlays of black canvas Micarta.

The fit of the inlay into the pocket is to extremely tight tolerance and the sections are retained with VHB (very high bonding) double sided tape. The inlays give a contoured feel to the handle and are as attractive as they are functional. A polished S35VN blade and satin finish titanium handles enhance the wood inlay Sebenza 21 with wood or mammoth, tumbled blade and sandblasted handle complete those with Micarta. A gold or silver thumb lug, lanyard tie, and spacer are chosen to coordinate with the color of the inlay.

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.

A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.

Great
I always wondered why such a plain knife would sell for so much, and why those who bought them were so happy with their purchase. Let me tell you: I waited a long time. I waited until I had reached a certain rather big goal before buying a sebenza. It is a fantastic knife, and leaves nothing lacking. The only thing that surprised me is that it was hard to open one-handed at first -- it requires a break-in period and now works very smoothly. On one hand I know I didn't get a used one, but it wouldn't have bothered me if they had hired a drop-out to break the thing in for me. Yes, it's relatively expensive. But it's preventing me from buying a bunch of knives that are not quite there. The micarta inlays are nice and grippy too.
