Well, to be honest I've been pretty lazy with my knives these past few months and the large classic suffered a bit in the maintenance department.

Finally today I got off my behind and took apart the Seb to clean and lube. Once put back together it was like having a brand new knife again. I forgot how smooth and how flawlessly these things operate. This was actually this particular knifes first takedown.

I've done this so many times in the past and I'm still amazed at how everything fits so precisely and pefectly. Incredible. :thumbup:

Most people will never dare to disassemble the folding knives they own. There’s a good reason for that, as many companies (like Spyderco and Benchmade) will automatically void your warranty if you take their knives apart.

In my opinion though, you have to completely disassemble a folder if you really want to thoroughly clean and lube it. That’s one of the best things about the Sebenza: it’s so easy to take it apart and reassemble it. It was designed for that, and a little wrench is even included in the box to assist you!

But yeah… when you dismantle the knife and put it back together, it really lets you appreciate how good the “fit and finish” are. Those terms are used so often now that they’re almost meaningless, but the fit on a Sebenza is about as perfect as I’ve found in any folding knife.
