Chris Reeve's Sebenza - Large Insingo
A Chris Reeve adaptation of the traditional Wharncliffe blade, the Insingo offers a strong and functional alternative to the utility blade of the Sebenza 21. Insingo is the Zulu word for razor – an inference to the straight cutting edge emulating a straight edge razor. Available as Large or Small Sebenza, left or right handed, the Insingo blade is available only with the plain and Micarta inlay handle and only with a tumble finish.
The Sebenza History...
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. 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 is the 21st year of the Sebenza and to celebrate, They introduced the Sebenza 21-an updated version of the classic, that is easier to insert into a pocket or pouch.
From the plain versions shown here-tumbled or "stonewashed" S35VN blades with sand blasted handles-to those with damascus blades and lavish graphics, each Sebenza is individually fitted to the closest tolerances. Available in large or small, and dedicated right or left handed.
