The Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 Tanto with Micarta inlay is a refined, working knife perfect for everyday use. Made in the USA, the Chris Reeve Sebenza 21 features quality workmanship from the renown and reliable knife maker pushing the envelope since 1984.
With a blade made out of stainless S35-VN steel with hollow grinds, this sebenza folding knife is made to tolerate continuous, heavy use. This American-made steel is corrosion resistant, tough, and holds a sharper edge for longer. The hardness of the blade is 59-60 RC, great for everyday carry. Its blade has a stonewashed finish that hides use and keeps the knife looking great.
The sebenza handle is constructed out of blasted titanium with Chris Reeve's specially engineered frame lock system for secure lock up. It manually opens with a thumb lug, with the lug and fittings in a matching silver color. The handle length totals 4.71" and features a pocket clip for tip up carrying. The blasted handle also includes a filed thumb rest for improved handling. With the black Micarta inlays (2 on the front, one on the back) fit for extremely tight tolerance and held by VHB (very high bonding) double sided tape, you get a contoured feel for heavy use. Even with the additional thickness from the inlays, the total handle thickness amounts to 0.53".
Overall, the Large Sebenza 21 Tanto with black canvas Micarta inlays folds out to a total length of 8.335" and weighs 4.7 ounces. In comparison to the smaller model, it has a longer blade for a variety of tasks.
