Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 Knife (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.

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.

Great knife
Robert c. on Nov 13, 2019

Totally worth the fight you're going to have with your wife about it...

Knife of Knives
Michael M. on Oct 15, 2019

It's the knife of knives. A piece of art, an heirloom, a knife that has achieved legendary status - and rightfully so.

The Classic of Classics

I avoided this knife for a long time due to the price tag and wanting to keep a happy marriage...... Now I own 3 of them and the wife has a few new things of her own to enjoy! Don't hesitate to pick this knife up, its as good as people say it is. And its a pleasure to use and carry as well!

My favorite knife/EDC
James L. on Sep 28, 2015

Fantastic knife that stands the test of time. Top quality materials with the fit of a Colt revolver. A must have for any knife lover. Somehow the Sebenza far exceeds the sum of its parts into something really great. It's odd to describe but you become very involved with the Sebenza through disassembly, cleanings, and carefully greasing the pivot to get it just right. It might be the best case of industrial art in the knife world. I own several vintage, regular's, classics, 21's and 25's and love 'em all.

The Knife

Sebenza by Chris Reeve is THE KNIFE. Nothing more, nothing less.

More than a Knife.
Dylan W. on Feb 13, 2015

Maybe a descendant creation of Hephaestus, this knife is a true companion to anyone who has the privilege of owning a Sebenza.
