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 was the 21st year of the Sebenza and to celebrate, we introduced the Sebenza 21—an updated version of the classic, that is easier to insert into a pocket or pouch. 

Whether plain with a tumbled or “stonewashed” S35VN blade and sand blasted handles, or embellished with a polished or damascus blade, wood inlay or lavish graphics, each Sebenza is individually fitted to the closest tolerances. All Sebenzas are available in large or small, and dedicated right or left handed.

"...My first impressions of the liner lock style locking mechanism were very favorable but when I examined it more closely, I decided that I didn't much like the flimsiness of the thin liner. After some thought, I redesigned the concept and have created the Sebenza Integral Lock© which I believe to be the most rugged folding knife on the market. I have put a great deal of thought into the different features of the Sebenza and know that this is a knife which will work hard, keep a good edge and will be easy to maintain. Zulu is the native language of the area in South Africa where I was born and raised. The Zulu people traditionally lived their lives in a simplistic, no-nonsense way and I have used that same approach in the way I design and make my knives. Sebenza means work in Zulu – these knives are intended to do just that. Sebenzas are a work in progress. I strive continually to advance minor features of the Sebenza so as to improve our methods of making the knives and to enhance their performance. Our knives are fitted to the tightest tolerances in the industry and the Sebenza has set a very high standard for the industry. “ -Chris Reeve

Sebenzas with Inlays:
Bridging the gap between hi-tech titanium and the organic feel of natural material is the Sebenza 21 with inlay. Available with mammoth or a choice of woods, each piece fits exactly into one of three pockets machined into the handle—two on the front and one on the back. For those who prefer all hi-tech, we also offer inlays of black canvas Micarta. 

The fit of the inlay into the pocket is to extremely tight tolerance and the sections are retained with VHB™ (very high bonding) double sided tape. The inlays give a contoured feel to the handle and are as attractive as they are functional. A polished S35VN blade and satin finish titanium handles enhance the wood inlay Sebenza 21.
