COMMENTS: The Chris Reeve Sebenza is the standard hard use tactical folder. The large sebenza 21 model is larger size with a robust 3.625" blade length. The sebenza by Chris Reeve Knives has a classic drop point blade shape with razor sharp hollow grinds. Refined design, high performance construction are all part of this folder. Titanium pocket clip mounted for tip up carry. Filed worked thumb rest for increased handling. The large sebenza 21 is lightweight for it's size, due to the titanium construction. Very strong integral locking mechanism that Chris Reeve pioneered for his folding knives. Begin to enjoy the quality of a Chris Reeve sebenza.
I purchased this knife for my husband's birthday. He was quite surprised. The CRK Sebenza is every bit as nice as all the other reviews can attest to. The craftsmanship, the fit, finish, and materials all are top notch.
When you hold the Sebenza in your hand, you know right away what all the hype is about. This is a fine hand made product. This is not the cheapest knife on the market, but it is not trying to be. This knife is not for a collector on a budget. This knife is for a buyer who can appreciate quality, and knows that it comes with a price.
Some things are worth the wait, and worth the price. The Sebenza is every bit of that.
I too, never really understood what all the hub-bub was about a Reeve folder. I've owned ZT's, Striders, Benchmades... I finally ordered one and yea, now I get it. Flawless machining, really as much a work of art as a tool, and a fantastic design. The calfskin pouch is a must. You have to protect this gem!
I really like this knife. No BS, simple, perfectly machined, tight tolerances, and smooth opening. The blade came nice and sharp, and the edge is symmetric. It is in my pocket right now, and will be there for the foreseeable future. Communication from KnifeArt.com was good, and shipping was fast (the knife arrived earlier than estimated).

I could never understand what all the chatter was about regarding the Chris Reeve Large Sebenza until mine came in the mail. I have a box full of custom knives made by some of the best knife makers in the country, This knife is equal to any of them and in some cases better than some as far as fit and finish goes............... it is PERFECT in every way You can not go wrong with a Chris Reeve Sebenza or the FINE service and fast delivery provided by Knifeart.
