    Chris Reeve's Sebenza 21

    I didn't feel this belonged in the defensive knives forum as I don't see this knife as defensive tool. It's truly a work of art.

    I finally picked up a Sebenza. This has been my "Grail" knife for a long time. The first time I held a Sebenza I knew I would get one eventually but they are pricey and were, for a time hard to find. I finally traded some other higher end knives in my collection and some cash for this:





    If you've never held one in your hand it's hard to describe the feeling. Very small things that all come together to make an incomparable gestalt. Benchmade, Spyderco, Zero Tolerance and Kershaw have some fantastic knives, of which I own more than a few. None come close to the overall package of a semi custom Sebenza.

    I just missed a Sebenza 25 on ebay. It didn't have the certificate of authenticity but it it had all of the right packaging and looked like the real thing. Not to mention that the seller was up front about the possibility that it might be a forgery(he bought it without the cert). It was either the best counterfeit I've ever seen or it was legit. It went for $230.00 and the Boss said I could only have $200.00 for the chance.

    Had I not just used up all my brownie points on the 21 today, I might have gotten the 25 on ebay instead, but the one in the hand and all that, ya know?

    More detail pics

    Here are a few more pics. I've been working on getting decent pics with the iphone since the battery in my Elf is dead and I can't find the charger!


    The tolerances are phenomenal on this knife. Reeve's shop laps the titanium scales parallel and to thickness +/- .0001"


    The pivots are individually hand fit and lapped and the lock up is tuned on every knife.


    The jimping is very subtle but deceptively so. It is plenty aggressive for the style of knife.


    I just liked the way this picture turned out.
