Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 Knife w/ Double Thumb Lug (3.625" Stonewash)

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. 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 and the Classic in 2000. This one comes with a double thumb lug.

2008 is the 21st year of the Sebenza and to celebrate, Chris Reeve has introduced the Sebenza 21—an updated version of the classic, that is easier to insert into a pocket or pouch.

This Sebenza series is one of our personal favorites. The beefy frame lock ensures the knife is like a fixed blade when it's open. Despite the rock solid feel the action is smooth and it's easy to operate. Both comfortable and elegant the Sebenza line is a must have for any knife enthusiast.

A worthwhile purchase
John C. on Jan 10, 2017

Other than the delay in my shipping it went off without a hitch. I removed the lanyard and it made a world of difference and it was everything that everyone said it was. Rugged and a quality knife. It will be used and I'm happy with it.

Fantastic blade and completely lives up to the reputation put forth more than 20 years ago. Sure there are knives that can do the same thing for much cheaper, and if paying $445 causes a problem within your conscience or appears ridiculous, by all means, don't get it. But know, the quality of this knife in regards to construction, visual appeal, ease of sharpening, blade shape are incomparable within it's class. Completely zero forward or side-to-side play, and PERFECT blade centering. Also to be noted, the ease of taking it apart is incredible. I would compare it to the knife world's Glock: simple yet eloquent; soft yet tough as nails. It's the kind of blade that is useful beyond it's intentions, and recognizable as something special even by those who've never heard the name. It comes with the iconic microfiber cloth, fluorinated grease (if you'd prefer quick opening right from the start), 5/64 wrench, and of course, the paperwork. Do not be surprised if the "birth certificate" included looks different than what is seen in videos and pictures. Typically in the past, the knives have come with a more so hand-written certificate, but now the paper is mostly typed and no longer includes Chris Reeve's signature. At least this was the case with mine. I have checked to insure that the knife is authentic, so it must be something new their doing. Overall, I consider the blade worth the money sought. If you're into knives that function as advertised and provide additional performance surprises, this is the knife you're looking for. I may be broke, but I'm completely satisfied.
