This Blade HQ Exclusive small sebenza model combines a stylish tanto blade with the scaled down Small Sebenza 21 handle with carbon fiber inlays. Chris Reeve introduced the first Sebenza in 1987 and the profile has experienced only 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 then in the 21st year, 2008, the Sebenza 21 was introduced, it's an updated version of the classic, that is easier for use in a pocket or pouch.
The Small Sebenza from Chris Reeve Knives is 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've had the opportunity to handle this knife you're sure to agree. Despite the rock solid feel the action is smooth and easy to operate. The Sebenza Integral Lock© ensures the knife is like a fixed blade when it's open. Both comfortable and elegant, the Small Sebenza line is a must have for any knife enthusiast.
I purchased this and have to say CRK makes some of the finest knives and they have stood the test of time. Carbon fiber and satin make this knife pop so much more. It almost modernizes this classic knife in a subtle way. The fit and finish is stellar and makes for a sturdy, comfortable and eye catching EDC knife. Arrived in awesome packaging and not to mention some extras that frankly I wish more makers included. That being said this was not my first and won't be my last CRK. If this version comes available again I'd recommend it without question. Thanks Blade HQ for the fast shipping as well!
