I didn't use the clip for a long time, but after putting it on a couple of months ago I am glad that I did.

My friend (that owns the knife shop) went on a cruise this week and I get not only to run her shop but BORROW her Classic Sebbie. :tu:

I took it apart and cleaned out all the crud then put it back together and even applied a little oil (big mistake) after I did that it started dragging big time.

After I took it apart again and dried out the oil it was fine.  I never felt a knife with such tight tolerance.

So far I like it but I still don't get the price tag ($330.00) maybe after a week of carrying it I will get it.

BTW I am carrying it CLIPPED inside a belt sheath, I am not taking any chances with this puppy (it would cost too much to replace) :ahhh

What oil did you use out of curiosity?  I know it is expensive, but CRK's grease is a worthy investment as a lube for any knife.  I have a few with that on (including a sebenza) and they have never been this smooth.

I am glad you like it and hope you grow to love it over the next week.  For me, and I think most Sebenza fans, the attraction to it is instant.  After a 5 minute play session with Dunc's large classic Sebenza I just knew I had to have one and although I have some other knives that I really like (Emerson Commander and a Spyderco Police to name a couple) the Sebenza really is in a class of it's own and for me is worth the price tag.
I'm back!!

To me I have mixed emotions.

On one hand I want to understand and feel the attraction for this fine piece of equipment
but on the other hand I don't want what I can't have.

I know and understand about Tilley Hats (blame Def) but that is $60-$70 not $330.

I have to admit I do admire the simplity of the design and the fact that not only can you take it apart but they encourage it.

It is just that price that KILLS me :ahhh

As far as what oil I used Rem Oil but even now with no oil in it, it is smooth still. :tu:

Can I include some Sebenza Insingo shots here? OK! :D

And it truly is a Razor. So far I really like it. I'm glad I went with it over the regular 21.









I had an Umnumzaan before so I knew what to expect when I got the Insingo.

I'll have to throw my small micarta inlay on here.  Question for the Sebenza owners; guy wants to trade his Large 21 for my small micarta classic.  Those with the large sebenzas do you think its worth it?

Prime that is gorgeous!!!  :drool: :gimme:

Zack, if you aren't happy with the size I'd trade personally.  But then again I don't like the inlays.  :D

I just wish there was a Medium Sebenza.  The inlays don't bother me, I just wish my pinky didn't hang off the back.

Was wondering how much an umnumzaan is worth trade wise.

Trying out the Chris Reeve Calfskin pouch as a carry method for my Insingo for the past week. So far I like it.







Just a pull of the lanyard and your ready to go.

mates, can I request a picture here?

I´m thinking of getting a small Sebenza classic and would LOVE to see it next to a knife I have for comparison. So a small Sebenza and

Delica, Endura, Native, Persian, Tenacious, Manix2, SOG Twitch XL, Benchmade Mini Griptilian

would be nice

(have more blades, but these are my most often carried)

Do you think the small one is maybe too small for EDC?

Thanks!

The small is perfect for EDC.  I can throw mine up next to a Delica, if you want.

I have this large Sebenza for a while




Just got this used small Sebenza off eBay a couple days ago - should be here in a day or so. Will be an EDC knife




Also a Umnumzaan is in the pile somewhere , no picture yet

REMEMBER ......... :rant:

How about this poorman's sebie??  Surely this was inspired by the Sebenza, a cheap copy (my kind of knife).

This is another Sebbenza inspired knife: Bradley Alias (same shape and materials)

http://www.knifeworks.com/bradleyaliasi360s30vbladetitaniumhandle.aspx

I have a small classic sebenza and have recently got an alias two, I wanted to have a knife close to the style but not so expensive. My impressions, the sebenza is way better with better quality and tolerances. The alias is still very cool but they are leagues apart. I may edc the alias more because it cost less but the sebenza had no worries, its top dog.

The Sebenza is breaking in nicely and the action is smoothing up. My thumb is also healing. Is there a way to check and make sure there is not a pinched washer without taking the knife back apart? I don’t want to take it apart every other day because I imagine thats not good for the knife, but I recently read about pinched washers and now I’m wondering.

I don't think there is a way to inspect the washers without taking everything apart, but pinched washers usually happen when people try to 'force' the blade/washers back into the chassis, or installing the wrong washer on the opposite side.

Here is a decent video by Tim Reeve about disassembly, and I always use this as reference whenever I need to take the knife apart.
