Iíll see if he has the paperwork for it. Iím not sure he has any. When I asked what model this was, all he said was it was a Large Sebenza.

Mick, it is a ďLarge RegularĒ Sebenza that had been built between 1996 - 2008. If you take it apart, the markings on the blade will tell you if it is an early one with BG42 or a later with S30V. They are highly sought after wink

The box should have a label with the name on it and the Blade Show sticker is another hint. If itís the correct box to this knife wink

From watching action on eBay, they tend to sell pretty close to retail, sometimes a bit less with a motivated seller.

They don't tend to bring a premium just because they are older, not even from way back in the 1990's with the original designs.

The only ones that bring higher prices have do-dads to pretty up the handles, but those prices tend to also be in line with the retail prices.

If you can buy this one at a discount from current retail prices, that would be a bit of a bargain.

Others might disagree, but you should not have to pay a premium for it.

I received the Sebenza yesterday. It only came with the box and a small allen wrench. No other paperwork or kit. So I have no idea when it was made or what kind of steel the blade is. The box has a label with "Large Sebenza" on one end. The top of the box has a sticker with:

1984-1997
13 Years of Excellence
Chris Reeve Knives

I took it apart to clean it and there were no stampings inside of the handles, but there was a faint "31" etched into the side of the blade near the pivot hole.

The edges of the the handles have small grooves in them that go from front to the back.

It definitely is a "User" as it has some scuff and scratches on it, but other than that, it is in beautiful shape.

It is a nice knife.

I have bought and sold a number over the years.

They eventually moved away from the lesser steels to better ones. I don't know what they were using in 1997 when your knife was made, but they can tell you.

They can also probably tell you what the 31 indicates.

According to info at this website your 1997 knife probably has a BG-42 blade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebenza

If it holds a good edge, then you should get good use from it.

Congratulations.

Larry
