The folding knife that has become the yardstick against which others are compared, the Small Sebenza has earned a worldwide reputation for rock solid performance and a “bank vault” feel. Chris developed the first Sebenza in 1987 and the profile has experienced minor changes over the years. After the entirely handmade version, came the Original profile in 1990, the Regular in 1996 and the Classic in 2000. 2008 was the 21st year of the Sebenza and to celebrate, Chris Reeve Knives introduced the Sebenza 21 - an updated version of the classic, that is easier to insert into a pocket or pouch. With a Devin Thomas Damacus Stainless steel blade and polished handles, each Sebenza is individually fitted to the closest tolerances.
Sebenza with Inlay:
Each Cocobolo piece fits exactly into one of three pockets machined into the handle - two on the front and one on the back. The fit of the inlay into the pocket is to extremely tight tolerance and the sections are retained with VHB™ (very high bonding) double sided tape. The inlays give a contoured feel to the handle and are as attractive as they are functional. A Gold Anodized thumb lug and spacer is chosen to coordinate with the color of the inlay.
