Well, I've been caring my old Benchmade for 14 years and finally decided to buy a Chris Reeve large Sebenza since I found one with a partial serated blade. Why did I wait so long???? I have to say that without a doubt, this is the best folding knife I have had the pleasure of owning. Yes, it is spendy, but so are Randalls and other high quality knives. If you carry a folder with a pocket clip, then you are missing out if you don't have a Chris Reeve. I know I need to include a picture but I don't know how to link my phone camera to the computer, sorry.

Try Emailing the pic from your camera to yourself, then download it with your computer.

I've been carrying a small decorated regular Sebenza for years. So long all the colored anodizing is worn off. You can't hurt one and if it gets gunked up, take it apart and clean it and lube the pivot point. Also, if it gets scuffed, and don't have a bead blaster, (who does?) just scotchbrite the snot out of it and it'll look great. Definitely the finest folder made, IMHO.

Here's my EDC. I wouldn't carry anything else. (Except maybe a Randall or Behring)

Here is my small Insingo - right out my pocket today. A great EDC, it sees a lot of pocket time smile



I think this grind is really sexy blush

I like the way they chamfered the end of the scales for easier pocket insertion. I believe they started that with the Seb 21s.

Pat & Peter,

Great looking knives you have there. Nothing fancy about them. They're all business. I don't think I have ever heard anyone say they don't like the Sebenza. IMO, they have joined the ranks of the iconic Buck 110/112 in customer satisfaction.

The main thing I like about the Seb (besides its quality and toughness) is that it is a "one handed" knife. Pull it out of your pocket, thumb it open, use it, thumb the lock back and close it with first finger and thumb and reinsert into said pocket. All while holding item to be cut in the other hand.

That was always the reasoning I used not to buy a Seb since I was so hooked on the "Spyderco" style of the big O instead of a pin. However, once I tried the Seb, the smoothness of the action sold me in an instant. The fact that it is Idaho Made was a big part of my decision as well.
