CRKSEB21LM: Large Sebenza 21, Micarta
Chris Reeve Knives
The folding knife that has become the yardstick against which others are compared, the Sebenza has earned a worldwide reputation for rock solid performance and a "bank vault" feel. It is the standard.

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, the Classic in 2000, and eventually, in 2008, the 21st year of the Sebenza, Chris Reeve introduced the Sebenza 21.

Designed for lifetimes of use, the Sebenza 21 was carefully developed to improve upon its predecessors. With every iteration, we seek to improve strength and longevity, while still maintaining the sleek profile and simplicity of the iconic Sebenza.

Whether plain with a tumbled or "stonewashed" S35VN blade and sand blasted handles or embellished with a polished satin or Damascus blade, wood inlay or lavish graphics, each Sebenza is individually fitted to the closest tolerances. All Sebenzas are available in Large or Small, and dedicated Right or Left handed for the fullest user experience.

Inlaid Models

Bridging the gap between hi-tech titanium and the organic feel of natural material is the Sebenza 21 with inlay. Available with a choice of woods, each piece fits exactly into one of three pockets machined into the handle—two on the front and one on the back. For those who prefer all hi-tech, they also offer inlays of black canvas Micarta.

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 polished S35VN blade and satin finish titanium handles enhance the wood inlay Sebenza 21 with wood or mammoth, tumbled blade and sandblasted handle complete those with Micarta. A gold or silver thumb lug, lanyard tie, and spacer are chosen to coordinate with the color of the inlay.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
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.
Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.

I always wanted a C.R. knife
My wife bought me this for Christmas. This will be the knife I carry when getting dressed up. Church, New Years day visits, etc. Awesome knife, butter smooth, razor sharp. But not something I want to misplace.

Beautiful knife, but not edc for working knife
Unbelievable knife. Quality, finish, a real beauty. I bought this knife because of the name and reputation, not disappointed. It is something to carry to social events in case you need a knife. But it is too good of a knife for edc. If I ever lost this I would be devastated. I just wish they offered a flipper since I am almost 60 years old and my arthritis kicks in during the cold months.

A simple beauty
The eternal discusion about this knife is if it's worth the price and what is that makes this a so coveted knife among collectors. Sebenza knifes are the "Rolex" of the knife industry as they have extraordinary quality reputation, consistent design along the years, proprietary manufacturing technology, but most important...they have SOUL. Are the Rolex the best watches in the world? Of course not, but people keep buying them for the reasons I mentioned before. Now, another eternal discussion is if the 21 is better than the 25. My personal opinion is that the 25 is way better knife than the 21 in all asprcts, nevertheless 21 owners which already have fallen in love with their twenty ones have to defend their purchase as they don't find a specific reason for an update unless they want to build a Sebenza collection. Is the 21 a EDC? Yes althoug a Small Sebenza 21 can be more portable. If you collect knives and you still don't own a Sebenza, you have to buy this particular knife as its value will increase in time. If you just want to have the best Sebenza, buy the 25.
