Chris Reeve 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.
The Sebenza from Chris Reeve is indeed the yardstick against which other folding knives are measured. The words "bank vault" feel have been used to describe the Sebenza's superior action and once you're had the opportunity to handle this knife you'll agree. Despite the rock solid feel the action is smooth and it's easy to operate. The titanium integral frame lock ensures the knife is like a fixed blade when it's open. Both comfortable and elegant the Sebenza line is a must have for any knife enthusiast.
This Small Sebenza 21 features a ladder Damascus blade and gabon ebony wood inlays. Actual Damascus blade may differ slightly from the one pictured.
