The first Sebenza was designed by Chris Reeve in 1987. Over the years, the Sebenza underwent several minor changes, with the Original profile released in 1990, the Regular profile released in 1996, and the Classic released in 2000. In the Sebenza's twenty-first year, 2008, the Sebenza 21 was born. The iconic knife is proudly American-made in Boise, Idaho.
"Sebenza means 'work' in Zulu – these knives are intended to do just that," Reeve explains about the Sebenza 21's name. Chris Reeve was born and raised in an area of South Africa where Zulu was the prominent language.
The Large 21 also offers several blade and design variations. Available with a Damascus blade, a tanto or drop point blade, or the Insingo (the Zulu word for "razor") blade, the Sebenza 21 is custom tailored to suit your specific needs. The standard blade finish on the knife is a stonewashed blade with the more upscale wood inlay models coming with satin finished grinds. The american-made folding knife can also be built in left-handed versions to accommodate Southpaw users.
The sebenza is available in a wide variety of handle configurations, from our exclusive carbon fiber to computer generated graphic (CGG) machined patterns or wood inlays in a wide variety of hand selected exotic hardwoods.
