Chris Reeve Knives: Large Sebenza 21
|Blade Steel:||CPM-S35Vn Premium Stainless|
I own three variations of the small Sebenza's and find them to be the perfect everyday users for my purposes. I didn't truly fall in love with them until I decided to take them apart for cleaning. Flawless! This is when I decided I needed to add a Large Sebenza to my collection/rotation even though it is larger than what I typically carry. For a large knife it is surprisingly unobtrusive in the pocket while sitting down at my desk or in the car. I cross shopped the Inkosi as well and will probably get one in time. There's just something about the Sebenza's minimalist design that I find very elegant. And I am a huge fan of the pivot bushing! The Large and Small Sebenza's take top position when I compare them to the other greats in the modern folder portion of my knife collection. Mechanical Perfection! An aside, I find it interesting that the maker of the most robust folders on the market also perfected the Gents Folder with the Mnandi.
