The first of the Sebenza 25 models to feature inlays is finally out and excitement doesn’t come close to describing how I’m feeling. I’ve known for some time now what the inlays would look like but wasn’t quite sure how’d they’d actually feel once I got them in hand. Well, I’m here to say that they’re a definite improvement over those on the 21, to say the very least. They’re contoured to fit the shape of your hand more precisely than those squared off ones on the 21. The benefit of inlays beside the aesthetic beauty is quite practical – they prevent much of the wear on the Titanium and not just because they cover it. Inlays are actually the only parts of the knife that will touch the table top when you place it down. Slide it across the table, the durable inlays will take the punishment, leaving your Titanium scratch free. In addition to the inlays, this Micarta model comes with dual Silver thumb lugs (won’t show wear like the blue lugs) and backspacer, which makes for a very beautiful knife. The 25 boasts improved ergonomics, larger and more durable internal parts, a redesigned thumb ramp, a new “Large Hollow” blade grind, and now you can add better inlays to the list of improvements over the 21. These are absolutely stunning knives built to the quality Chris Reeve is famous for, check out this awesome new knife at www.knifecenter.com
With two new flippers in two successive years, Spyderco must be trying to change their Trademark Hole or something fishy is going on. Flippers keep gaining popularity with knife knuts because they’re easier and are in some cases faster to open. The addition of an assist mechanism or ball bearing system gives you the peace of mind that the blade will open quickly and do so completely, every time. The Domino is just this kind of knife with buttery smooth bearings, making it very fun to play with. In use, it’s like any other Spyderco – just made to cut things! The CTS XHP steel is among the best in performance on the market due a high hardness and edge holding capability. The best thing about it though, is something you cannot see; the ease at which it can be resharpened. Hard steels like D2 and ZDP perform very well until they get dull. That’s when you either have to spend an hour working on the edge or send it out to get professionally sharpened. Not so with XHP. It’s fine particle metallurgy and high chromium content makes sharpening easier while also boosting its corrosion resistance. The Chris Reeve Integral frame lock (with replaceable lock bar insert), four-position pocket clip, and carbon fiber laminate handle are just other parts of this very well manufactured product.

Introducing the 25th year anniversary edition of the original frame lock folder – the Sebenza. The hole in the middle of the face scale is gone making for simply a better looking knife. The extra finger contour is the most noticeable difference on this model but it’s inside where all the real change has happened. The handle screws and pivot are now larger to wear better over time. The washers are absolutely gigantic and fit with extra holes for better oil distribution resulting in a smoother opening blade. The thumb ramp has been redesigned with a much larger curve so it’s actually functional now and really locks the knife in the hand. Finally, the attached blue lanyard and bead really are just a cherry on top. It’s an absolutely stunning knife built to the quality Chris Reeve is famous for. This is a Prototype, serial number 22 of 25, and is hand signed and dated by the legend himself – Chris Reeve. Check it out before it’s gone at www.knifecenter.com.

New one of a kind knives from Chris Reeve! When it comes to production knives, Chris Reeve stands alone atop the mountain. He has made many innovations and collaborated on designs that have forever changed our industry. He is the father of the one-piece knife concept, with his original model MK IV, the chief innovator of the Reeve Integral Lock, commonly referred to as a Frame lock, and was even crucial to the development of S30V stainless steel. He worked alongside the Crucible Materials Company to develop the first steel specifically designed for the cutlery industry. The various inlays, CNC machined graphics on the handle scales or beautiful Devin Thomas Damascus steels can make your production knife one of a kind. If you don’t love Chris Reeve Knives, then you probably haven’t handled one – they’re that awesome.

Ever thought you’d see a Chris Reeve folder for under 200 bucks? Yeah, neither did we… but here they are!
