Made in the U.S. by Chris Reeve Knives of Boise, Idaho, the Chris Reeve Large Sebenza Insingo Folding Knife available at KnifeArt is a must for any serious knife enthusiast to add to his collection.

The Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 features the "Insingo" blade profile. The stainless CPM-S35VN steel blade is 3.625 inches long with a Rockwell hardness of 59-60. The blade has a stonewashed finish with a hollow grind and is 0.125 inches thick. The anodized thumb stud and spacer add accent to the Large Sebenza. Rodney Connelley provided the blade concept and draft drawings, and the final design and technical modifications came from Chris Reeve himself. The insingo blade shape enhances precision slicing and cutting and is built for heavy use, blending rugged character with precision.

The titanium handle is 4.71 inches long and 0.46 inches thick. It has a frame lock for one-handed opening and closing. A lanyard and titanium pocket clip are both included. The titanium integral frame lock ensures the knife emulates a fixed blade when it is open. The Large Sebenza Insingo Folding Knife will impress you with its comfort and elegance. The included pocket clip (mounted for tip-up carry) is a perfect fit for jeans pockets, and the lanyard cord helps in removing the knife from the pocket very quickly.

Free shipping is available when you order the Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 Tactical Folding Knife from KnifeArt. Your order will be processed and shipped within one business day of being placed, and customer satisfaction is guaranteed.

5  Amazing precision , Chris Reeve Large Sebenza Insingo Folding Knife
Posted By:

I have multiple midtech and custom knives on my collection, and this is made better and more precisely than ANY other, regardless of price. It is absolutely fantastic and the benchmark for all other knives I purchase. The higher end knives may come and go, but this sebenza will have to be pried from my cold, dead hands.

The only con is that I believe the steel should be treated a point or so higher than it is (~58HRC) as the edge retention falls short of other similar steel knives I own, such as my hinderer xm18.

After buying something like a prybar, I found this knife a 1000 times more practical for daily use. The quality is above and beyond anything I expected, and the size is perfect for carry. Time to Ebay the other blade. Btw, Knifeart service is great too.

5  Extremely high quality folding knife, 2010 Exclusive Chris Reeve Large Sebenza Insingo - Folding Knife

I have heard a lot about the high quality and excellent design of Chris Reeve knives and finally decided to get one for myself. I have a large collection of blades from various smiths and have to say that the Chris Reeve Insingo is one of the finest that I own.

The quality of this knife is evident when you first open the box. There is obvious attention to detail - everything is perfect. The finish on the Titanium components is flawless but also provides an excellent grip and feel. The blade has a working polish and again, every edge has the feel of being finished to perfection.

The entire knife is very solid construction and I have a hard time imagining how one could get damaged during use. There is an extremely satisfying locking sound when the frame lock engages with absolutely no movement of the blade. The handle fits my hand perfectly and the balance, probably due to the weight of the Titanium, is perfect.

The blade was sharp out of the box but I did perform a full sharpening set using my Japanese water stones. I think there is some advantage to having a little more aggressive sharpening angle than was used at the factory - certainly the blade is now razor sharp and has not dulled after being used to cut some cardboard and various items while out fishing. I really like the shape of the Insingo's blade and it is very functional - I also have received a lot of positive comments regarding the blade.

The pocket clip shows attention to detail in the shaping - perfect fit for jeans pocket. I like the cord since it does help in removing the knife from pocket very quickly.

Overall the Insingo is easily worth its price. This is something that will be passed down for generations.
