A precision tool made by Chris Reeve Knives of Boise, Idaho, the Chris Reeve Small sebenza 21 S35VN Steel Integral Locking Folding Knife based on the Large Sebenza 21 and is sold by KnifeArt. When you carry a sebenza you will appreciate the quality and attention to detail in your every day carry knife.

The Chris Reeve small sebenza folding knife has a CPM S35VN stainless steel drop point blade that is 3 inches long. The steel is heat treated to Rockwell Hardness of 59-60 and has a stonewashed finish that serves to conceal any scratches. The American-made CPM steel provides a durable hollow ground blade with even distribution of cutting carbides in the steel. Chris Reeve sebenza has a blade thickness of 0.125 inches and a rounded top edge with jimping on the thumb rest. The thumb lug allows the user to open the knife one-handed at a moments notice. Although the knife is lightweight and conveys a definite stoutness, it also has a toughness that sets it apart from many other folders in its class.

The handle, which is 0.125 inches thick, is made of aerospace-grade 6Al4V titanium alloy. Knife users seeking a smaller knife that is less cumbersome to manage (it weighs just 3 ounces) will appreciate the comfortable grip the Small Sebenza 21 provides. The frame of the handle has been bead blasted for an even grey finish, which adds to the secure grip in hand. The integral frame lock mechanism includes a secure lock-up, and the handle has fittings made of 303 stainless steel. The handle has a cut-out that allows you to easy access the lock bar when closing the knife. The S35VN blade rides on a phosphor bronze bushing for smooth opening and closing. The thumb stud and lanyard spacer is made of blue anodized titanium. A titanium pocket clip is included so you can carry the knife with the tip up configuration. The high-end American-made folding knife comes with a black cord lanyard, all new packaging and a certificate of authenticity.

KnifeArt offers the Chris Reeve Small Sebenza 21 for sale with free shipping. The order is processed the same business day it is received, and customer satisfaction is guaranteed.

I have gotten to the point in life where I want to own fewer things, but I want those things to be of higher quality. I've carried a knife of one kind or another for decades, and that was the last item in my pocket to get the upgrade. I researched and shopped around for the perfect EDC knife for a few years. Of all of the top contenders for me, the Small Sebenza was the only one that I couldn't handle in-person. I took the plunge on the Sebenza with Knife Art because of their return policy, figuring that if I didn't like it, I'd send it back before using it. Not to worry. This knife is everything I hoped it would be, and in my opinion, it lives up to the Sebenza hype. If you want a simple, elegant, American-made, rock-solid titanium framelock of the highest quality that will be a joy to carry every day, this is your knife. Knife Art's free shipping was crazy fast, their service excellent. I'll send anyone here for knives in the future.

Perfect size for an EDC knife; feels lightweight, but sturdy. The build quality is amazing. The fit and finish exceeded my expectations. Meticulously built and assembled, I look forward to handing this knife down to my son one day.

For me the small Sebenza is the perfect size for EDC. The fit and finish was excellent and the shipping from KnifeArt was fast. Out of the box the blade wasn't as sharp as I like. I few passes on my strop and it was shaving the hair from my arm. This was my first high end production knife and I feel it was money well spent. Excellent knife.

I have learned that knife people have very strong opinions and deep loyalities. Many have said that this knife is not as good as some Spyderco or Benchmade knives and that it's certainly not worth the money. I too have a strong opinion but my loyaliteis are based on performance and I strongly believe that this is the best made and perfect edc. I own many knives (over 20), including Spyderco, Benchmade, William Henry, and CRKT to name a few and not one of them (except WH but they are rather delicate) come close in terms of fit and finish, quality and duaribility - period and that's why it costs a bit more. I think it's worth the price and I would rather have one of these over two - three other knives that total to the same value. This is the best made and most solid folder that I have experienced. Solid, good feel, excellent blade steel, few parts to break and wear out, easy to clean/maintain and excellent support from the manufacturer. It does not open as easily or fast as my Spyderco or Bechmade knives but that is not the most important thing to me. THe most important is the quality, cutting ability and durability. All my other knives have some sort of lateral blade movement but the Chris Reeve knives do not.

On minor problem that was handled very appropriately was that the knife when received was not as sharp as I expected. I called Chris Reeve and they were concerned and very quickly sent me a return label to ship back to them for sharpening at no cost to me. Everything else was perfect and this issue was fixed.

Best edc knife for me!!!

5  Simple Perfection, Chris Reeve Small Sebenza 21
Posted By:

And behind that simplicity there are decades of perfecting this plain-looking yet incredible performing titanium folder from Chris Reeve. I have a fair number of folders in my collection, most high-end production and some custom but I keep searching for that every day carry piece that I will commit to. This may be it-- finally. Like all Chris Reeve knifes the materials and manufacture quality is second to none. I really like the blade shape and stone wash finish, which is complimented by the plain bead blasted titanium scales. It locks open with assurance and has a reasonable closure detent for carry. This small knife fits into every pocket I want and it even dissapears when carried in-waist band on jeans but with the dual ribbed retainer clip I'm confident it won't work its way out. If you collect knives or are looking for a high utility EDC, this should be on your list.

Knife Art purchasing was awesome- from the great web site with big photos and payment options and then on to immediate shipping! I will definitely be back to "maintain" my collection so it does not get stale. Thanks, Knife Art!

I just purchased this knife as a gift and am very happy with the design - the finish of the blade and frame are much nicer in person than it appears in photos. I'm also very pleased with ordering through Knife Art - great customer service and my order arrived quickly.

5  Not too big, not too small, Chris Reeve Small Sebenza 21
Posted By: - verified customer

It goes without saying, the quality of this knife is superb. I was a little worried that the Small would be too small, but I have now had it for several weeks, and it is perfect for true everyday carry. The Large is over 8 inches when open, which can be intimidating even among friends. I can use the Small in public without drawing undue attention. The 4 x 1 x 3/8-in rectangular handle comfortably fills the palm of my hand, and the blade is substantial, 1/8-in thick and tapers more gradually toward the point than the Large blade. Having paid this much for a pocket knife, I am happy to say this one will definitely get used a lot more than a Large.

Knife Art had my small Sebenza 21 at my door in two days flat! Excellent customer service! I've carried my Sebenza almost every day since. The knife speaks for itself but going through Knife Art was fast and easy.

The tolerances used when designing and assembling this knife are amazing. As an engineering, it makes me proud to see other companies that pride themselves in high quality craftsmanship, and well thought out designs. This knife is excellent for EDC. Knifeart.com is really a class act - they are extremely helpful both on the phone and via email, and I will definitely buy from them again.

Like many reviewers, I can't say this knife just leapt out of the box at me, but after carrying it a few days, it has quickly become my favorite. Very sharp right out of the box. a beautifully finished, suitably thick blade rides perfectly centered between two superbly machined slabs of titanium. Opening is smooth as silk, if not incredibly fast, and the locking mechanism clicks in authoritatively. I have no worries about a lock failure with this knife. Closing the knife is also smooth and you know when the knife is safe. The titanium pocket clip holds the knife securely in jeans, although it could be a little deeper. The fasteners are countersunk and of the highest quality. The blue accents give the knife a bit of a unique look. The thumb stud could be a little bigger, but it doesn't take long to get used to opening this knife. I have found no burrs, nicks, etc., on the knife at all. It is simply flawless. Overall, an excellent bladed tool for EDC and, since it will last more than a lifetime, absolutely worth the price.

I'd read about the Sebenza 21 online. I managed to save my pennies and finally made the purchase.

Best knife I've ever bought.

It comes very, very sharp. The opening and closing is quite smooth and it feels nice and solid.

Worth every penny!
