Carbon Fiber, you see it on high-end supercars, you see it used in the aerospace industry and now you can have it on one of the best folding knives made, the Sebenza 25 in a left handed model. We received a bunch of requests for the Left Handed Carbon Fiber 25 from our lefty friends, it took a while but the knives are finally in. They are a mirror image of the standard right handed Sebenza 25 in carbon fiber.

There is a good reason that carbon fiber is used in high-tech products, it reduces weight while not compromising strength. Weight reduction comes in handy when you carry a knife, you want the highest quality fit and finish, but you want it in a tool that can be comfortably carried without being too heavy. The Carbon Fiber Sebenza 25 fits that requirement perfectly.

The Carbon Fiber Sebenza 25 comes with a blade that is 3.625” long and the knife normally weighs 5.2 oz. but with the carbon fiber handle, the weight drops to 4.0 oz! The extra 1.2 ounces of weight reduction provide the user with an outstanding blade-to-weight ratio.

The carbon fiber handle is lightly blasted for texture, yet the weave pattern of the solid carbon fiber is clearly visible. The Sebenza 25 has a frame lock mechanism that Chris Reeve pioneered in the knife industry. The lock construction puts a solid 6Al4V titanium frame behind the blade when opened. The frame lock construction along with the thumb lugs allow for easy one-handed opening and closing. Chris Reeve Knives goes the extra mile in fabrication, the machine lapping on both sides of the handle creates a perfectly flat surface, creating a ‘bank vault’ feel when the lock engages.

A key factor in any knife is the quality of the steel used. The Carbon Fiber Sebenza 25 utilizes American-made CPM S35VN stainless steel made by Crucible Industries. The steel is heat treated to a Rockwell hardness of 58-59 for outstanding edge retention and impact resistance. The drop point blade has what Chris Reeve calls a wide hollow grind, somewhere between a hollow grind and flat grind. The blade is a beefy .140” thick and has a scratch resistant stonewashed blade finish. The thumb rest of the blade spine has textured jimping for positive grip.

Another key feature of the Sebenza 25 is the specially designed phosphor bronze pivot washers. The washer material was selected to reduce friction and is perforated to further reduce friction. Another feature of this knife is that it has a 1/8” ceramic interface between the titanium frame lock and the hardened steel blade. The ceramic interface provides an extended lock life by reducing wear on the lock.

The Chris Reeve Carbon Fiber Sebenza 25 comes with a blasted titanium pocket clip and a black cord lanyard along with a machined and anodized titanium bead. The knife has dual blue anodized titanium thumb lugs for easy opening right or left handed. Beyond functionality, the three dimensional black weave carbon fiber just looks phenomenal.

This knife is made in Boise, Idaho by Chris Reeve knives and is a KnifeArt.com exclusive.

5  Wow!, Chris Reeve Knives Carbon Fiber Sebenza 25 - Left Handed Model
Posted By:

I've owned several knives over the years for a much lower price, but had a special occasion occur and wanted to truly commemorate it with a really nice folder. True lefthanded, high quality folders are hard to find. After careful research I found this Chris Reeve Sebenza 25 left hand. I found gleaming reviews on just about everything Chris Reeve and decided to take a chance, and glad I did! This is a beautiful folder with extraordinary tolerances as advertised. The carbon fiber scale looks amazing and offers just the right positive feel as does the bead blasted titanium. I bought this knife to use and completely satisfied with my choice. The only criticism I can offer is this, the titanium pocket clip bead blast finish seems to wear rather quickly to me. After only a couple of days I could see the wear. Obviously this is the most exposed part of the knife but wish the bead blast would hold out quite a bit longer. That being said, if your OCD like me, you can order a replacement direct from Chris Reeve for very little and have it ready whenever you'd like to replace it. I look forward to many, many years with this piece and have no doubt it will pass through my family for many years after I'm gone.
