I've LOVED sebenzas since I got my first one almost 20 years ago. I took a while off following the knife market and only came back recently and dug into the 25 and Inkosi line up. At first glance, I adored the look! The curves of the handle and stoutness of the blade is very appealing to my sensibilities. I watched several review videos online and learned that the 25 and Inkosi model lack a pivot bushing and thus the consequence is if you overtighten the pivot, then the knife gets harder to open, like basically every other knife on the market except a sebenza. To quote ApostleP YouTube reviewer, "a pivot bushing is what makes a sebenza a sebenza." I find Mr Reeve to be a brilliant knifemaker, so I rather than dismiss these two knife lineups, I'd like to explore the benefits of the changes made from the 21 to the 25 and inkosi line up. Ignoring the handle and blade shape differences, because those are visually obvious, I'd like to know the rationale for removing the pivot bushing and going to only one handle screw instead of two. From my position of ignorance, the 25 and Inkosi lineup would be different enough from the 21 by handle and blade shape alone, and the pivot bushing and number of handle screws could remain the same and people would still buy the 25/Inkosi based on aesthetics or how it fits their hand. Heck, I'd probably have bought one. Or more! But given the elimination of the pivot bushing, it seems like a totally different knife in its internals, at least from my position of ignorance, which is why I'm starting this thread. On the surface it seems like a step backwards and possible a budget knife that might be cheaper to produce since there's likely fewer steps in manufacturing and less tolerances to worry about. But the Inkosi is slightly more expensive than the 21 and I'm sure there's more to it than that and I'm merely ignorant of the intention behind this change. I'm sure these discussions happened when the 25 was first released and I missed it since I was away from the knife world during that time. I'd go back and search archives, but then I'd lose the last few years of real world experience people have gained from these models.
