CRKSEB21S: Small Sebenza 21
Chris Reeve Knives

Chris Reeve Knives describes this item as follows:

The Sebenza is 21 years old!

Who would have thought back in 1988 that Chris's titanium handle folder would become a legend in the industry! Constant attention to design details and an unwavering commitment to quality in every aspect of the knife has created the Sebenza as a hallmark of excellence. To mark this amazing milestone, we are planning to make some changes to the lineup of Sebenzas.

We are going to stop making almost all Regular profile Sebenzas. The profile on the Classic will change slightly and this version will be known as Sebenza 21.

The design change on Sebenza 21 gives a more pronounced chamfer on the pivot edge of the handle allowing the knife to be inserted more easily into a pocket or sheath. The engraving of "Classic MM" on the back of the Classic Sebenza will be eliminated, making differentiation of the two models easy! The blade shape remains the same.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Well made knife.
The knife is sturdy and very well made. The knife was not as sharp as I would like so it had to be sharpened.

Cons: None
Great knife
Its a simple design, but durable. It takes a bit to learn to open it with your thumb, take it apart and clean. Once you master that, its a pleasure to own. Unfortunately I lost mine after carrying it for 5 years. Chris Reeves has excellent service.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Handle Material
I purchased a Small Sebenza for EDC. The knife is well made, blade is very sharp and it's simple lines and no frills appearance appealed to my taste. Out of the 25 or so pocket knives I own this one is my "go to" choice as long as there is no loss risk involved in the decision. Their lies the problem. There are plenty of knives out there that are half the price or even less that are equally as good but don't have the snob appeal of the Sebenza. My disappointment is the finish on the titanium handles. The titanium is unfinished an thus susceptible to marking and scuffing which happened during my first week of use. Although the blade comes razor sharp and is in the "Wonder Steel" SV35 I didn't think the edge was that durable. I do like the knife however I think this knife should retail under $200
