The Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 CGG Rhino is just one of many models in the Sebenza 21 family. The Sebenza 21 is the folding knife that has become the yardstick against which other folding knives are compared too. The Chris Reeve Sebenza 21 has earned a worldwide reputation for rock solid performance and a “bank vault” feel. Chris Reeve 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, Chris Reeve Knives 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.
The Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 Computer Generated Graphic “Rhino” was designed to honor the magnificent African Big Five animals, the Sebenza 21 CGG “Rhino” is number 3 of 5 in the Big Five series. Outside of its massive stature, the Rhino’s thick, hard to puncture protective skin, horns, and big teeth make it a tough opponent in the wild. It features a laser engraved Rhino on the presentation side scale with matte blasted finish. The drop point style blade is premium CPM-S35VN, and has a stonewash finish. The stonewash finish is great for day to day use that shows very little wear. A single titanium thumb stud is attached for right hand opening. The blade operates incredibly smoothly on custom bronze washers and is delivered razor sharp. A Reeve Integral Frame Lock keeps the blade solidly in the open position and can be simply disengaged. An attached lanyard and titanium, tip-up carry pocket clip rounds out this Large Sebenza 21.
