Its been years since i have had a sebenza. CRK did the heat treat right on this one and the shipping speed from NWK is absolutely amazing. It does take a couple weeks to fully break in but well worth it once it is. I am very happy with my purchase and will continue to support NWK being i too am a PNW native
I had to actually use this for a while before I will do a review.
I think this is the highest quality folder I have ever bought and used.
I have been carrying high quality autos for the last few years, but always wanted a Chris Reeve knife. So, finally decided to do it.
It does have that hydraulic type opening that is not as quick as other knives, but
seems so reliable.
I really like how Reeves supports us taking it apart, and gives you the print and everything you need to do it, while other companies put their own special fasteners on it so that you cant.
I gave this a 4 star instead of 5 just because my blade was bent slightly out of the box.
Not enough for me to send it in to them. I use all my tools.
Sorry for the long review. If you can afford it, get it. Tightest lock up of any folder I have ever had. And its getting smoother every day.
I have a few CRK knives, my favorite being the senenza 31. One of the best improvements, along with the tighter tolerances, and s45vn blade steal, is the ceramic detent/lock interface. There’s no risk of lock stick, and the lock bar won’t move, over the life of the knife. CRK took premium materials, and made a no frills, no gimmick, simple knife. Now, you can’t flick it with any degree of ease, and it doesn’t drop shut. What it does do, is open with a smooth, hydraulic “click”, making it a pleasure to open for use on your daily cutting tasks.
There's not much I can say about a Chris Reeve knife that hasn't neen said hundreds of times over the past 31+ years. For me, this was the 3rd Large CRK knife (Insingo and Tanto Inkosi w/ black micarta were my first two). The Sebenza is a little thinner in the blade stock, and slightly more neutral in ergos. I only wish this had the double thumb stud, but having waited over a year to get this in s45vn, I can't complain. Bottom line- if you want a knife that you and your grandkids can depend on, you can't go wrong with a Reeve. This knife us a legend for a reason.
