Did she give you any pricing structure? Options? Guess I need to call Boise....
I had some back and forth emails with Heather from CRK and she confirmed that you can now pre-order the large Sebenza 25 from CRK. Also, the small Sebenza 25 (the one I am really interested in) is being designed and hopefully will be available to pre-order early next year. Small Sebenza 25 will be my first CRK when it comes out. If any of you have more info/updates on the new Sebenzas 25 please share with the rest of us.
Preordered about a month ago. Was told it'd be around the same price range as the 21
Interesting that the small is so far away. I expected it a bit sooner. Guess I'll have to learn some patience
I was told about 9 more months out, in a email?
I was told 6 when I ordered mine, but then again I think it was right after Blade show. Maybe the wait has gone up b/c the list has grown, and it probably has grown alot
I want to see some production units and see the feedback on them first. Besides, I love the insingo. Will probably wait for an Insingo 25. That would be sweet
In the meantime, I'll "suffer" with my 21's
[email protected] if you have any more questions.

I think we will be lucky to get these before Christmas but I am not holding my breath.
Pardon the ignorance, but I'm pretty new to CRK's... What will the differences be between the Sebenza 21 and the Sebenza 25? Thanks for your help.
I pre ordered mine a while ago... I already have the cash set aside for it. I cant wait for this one...
I asked about them the other day. Seems like they are not taking orders yet for the lefty version. Bummer!
Also new grind on the blade, a new combo/ flat grind. I believe thicker blade stock and the pivot has been slightly revised. I believe more Umnum like. Anything else?
Somewhat of a read, but explains more:
"The "Regular Sebenza" has a more square handle and small ridges on the handle; the "Sebenza 25" has a more concave handle with finger ridges on the handle. Effective drop point blade shape with new razor sharp "Large Hollow Grinds", the first blade to feature this new grind that blends the best of hollow and flat grinds for the new sebenza 25. Shaped phosphor bronze washer on the lock side brings additional stability to that side of the blade. One-eighth inch ceramic ball acts as the interface between the lock bar and the blade, and doubles to drop into the detent, ensuring the blade stays in place when closed. Larger perforations in the washers reduce friction, store more lubricant and offer space for small dirt particles to move away from the blade/washer interface, helping to prevent blade action from becoming "sticky". 416 heat treated stainless steel stop pin is interface fit into the lock side of the handle. Asymmetrical pattern thumb serrations on a curved thumb ramp of the blade give excellent purchase. At 3.56mm the blade of the sebenza 25 is more robust than previous sebenza models." Found here.
Not sure how effectively different the grind is, though I'm sure somebody will point that out in a photo once they're delivered. Seems like some minor tweaks here and there that should build on an already great knife. The finger ridges are a nice plus in my book.

Thanks for the info Riz
I think the 25 is gonna be the one for me. I like the finger grooves. Just adds that little bit of extra visual 'something' to it.
