The Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 with Micarta 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 blade grind, 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 58-59 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 use. Even with the additional thickness from the inlays, the total handle thickness amounts to 0.53".
Overall, the Large Sebenza 21 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 drop blade for a variety of tasks.
Very nice indeed, my Sebenza collection is growing, now I need to add the small micarta to my collection!
After using this knife for the past couple weeks i can say it is the best knife i own. The build of this knife is second to non and all the positive reviews are accurate. When i hold this knife i just think to myself that it will do anything i need it to. It feels extremely solid in the hand and disassembly and reassembly takes about 5-10 minutes depending on how long you want to stare at the inner workings. There are people that will say the knife is all hype, well im here to say that the hype is accurate and well deserved. If you know your knifes you will agree. If your on the fence just do it! you will not regret it.
After having it for a couple weeks I can safely say that this is the nicest knife I've ever owned. The fit and finish is phenomenal and the micarta is extremely convenient. I ended up switching the thumbstud out for a double one, as well as the backspacer and lanyard through CRK.
If you're thinking about buying this, go for it. You won't regret it.
I was completely blown away by the quality in the craftsmanship!! This is my first Sebenza but definitely not my last. Also thank you to Larry at Knifeart for a quick and easy transaction!

I have owned over 20 Chris Reeve knives. All of them always have been 100% perfect with fit and finish, sharpness, and packaging. The new knives have freebies that come with them and the packaging is more professional. Personally, I think the 21 is an improvement over the Classic. I am still undecided of the 25. This knife is the perfect EDC.

First knife I received was way off of Chris Reeve standard, blade centering was TERRIBLE. KnifeArt quickly returned it and sent me a replacement that was perfect. Beautiful example of the quality Chris Reeve manufacturing we know and love. This was my first Micarta Sebenza and the micarta adds a lot of texture to the handle and gives a really great grip. It looks great as well. Very satisfied with this knife.
