CRKSEB25L: Large Sebenza 25
Chris Reeve Knives
Knifemaker Chris Reeve has always pursued simplicity and function. In 1987, having observed the traditional liner lock folder, he sought to strip out the complexity and reduce the locking mechanism into a single piece. The Sebenza Integral Lock was born.

Twenty-five years have passed. Virtually every year has seen small, incremental developments, improvements, changes, and every year the Sebenza has been admired, tested, and yes, copied! Ever keeping ahead of the competition, Chris has brought new concepts to the 25th Anniversary Sebenza.

The 25th Anniversary Sebenza features the sandblasted matte gray handles, typical of all Sebenzas. Comes with the microfiber cloth and leather pouch.
  • Large Hollow Grind Technology—the first blade to feature this new grind that blends the best of hollow and flat grinds.
  • Shaped phosphor bronze washer on the lock side brings additional stability to that side of the blade.
  • One-eighth inch ceramic ball acts as the interface between the lock bar and the blade, and doubles to drop into the detent, ensuring the blade stays in place when closed.
  • Larger perforations in the washers reduce friction, store more lubricant and offer space for small dirt particles to move away from the blade/washer interface, helping to prevent blade action from becoming "sticky".
  • 416 Heat treated stainless steel stop pin is interference fit into the lock side of the handle.
  • Asymmetrical pattern thumb serrations on a curved thumb ramp of the blade give excellent purchase.
  • At 0.140” (3.56mm), the blade is more robust blade than previous Sebenza models.

  • Blade Hardness: 58-59 RC
  • Blade Length: 3.625" (92 mm)

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Lock Type
Cons: None
Was a little unsure because the 21 was so perfect but the changes made to this are amazing (of course crk knows what they're doing) the 21 is bank vault lockup this is double bank vault. No blade play centering is perfect and it's smooth as butter even without the pivot bushing system. The finger grooves fit the hand perfectly and I like how it's narrower at the bottom of the handle. I couldn't have expected any better from crk. If your still wondering why they're phasing out the 21 for the 25 like I was get one and you'll see why. It'll always be in your pocket. Great service fast delivery time by knife center as always love these guys.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Really awesome blade!
If you are a first time buyer of a Chris Reeve knife, and can't decide between a Sebenza or an Umnumzaan, try the 25! It combines the best qualities of both knives with none of the negatives! If you already own a Sebenza and a Umnumzaan, you have got to try this knife! Typical Chris Reeve quality in a true hybrid of his already existing blades!!! This one is a winner and most definitely, Mr. reeve hit it out of the park with this model!

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
Awesome knife
This is a souped-up Sebenza 21. Solid, it's slightly-heavier than a normal 21 and a true evolution in the design. Solid lock up, great balance and the S35VN steel holds a really sharp edge. Typical Chris Reeve quality, flawless in execution.
