    Size comparison request: small Sebenza vs. Chaparral

    I would greatly appreciate it if someone could post comparison pictures of the small CR Sebenza with a chaparral and maybe even a dragonfly and/or caly3 and/or techno if possible. Thanks!

    About a month ago, I looked up every photo comparison and vid on the small sebenza and still couldnt get the size down. In some pics it looks small and in others it looks alot bigger. Unfortunatley no where in town has them so I could see them in person.

    Hey, im not 100% sure but I think this is a large sebenza in this photo with the Sage 2 and Techno. I went to the site where that pic was found and he doesn say if its a large or small and just refers to it as a sebenza.

    There a good photo comparison in this thread of a closed small sebenza and sage 2 which makes me believe the photo of the sebenza with the sage 2 and techno is a large. Who knows though, I could be wrong. Anyway here is the thread...

    It has to be a large Sebenza. A small Seb would look very different next to a Sage.

    That's a large Sebenza in post 4 ... but I'm not sure it is a real one. I'm not an expert by any means but the clip and screws look wrong and the scale doesn't have that funny detail at the screw closest to the pivot.

    But I am getting side tracked : Dragonfly, Strider PT, Caly 3, Chaparral, Small Sebenza Insingo and Techno. Photo isn't great because it is already dark and this was snapped on my study floor with the on camera flash.

    Ahh oops, my bad, I'll remove it. It was one of the first pictures I found when I searched for "small sebenza chaparral" so I figured it was a small haha but looking back at it now, it looks a good bit longer than the Techno while the other pic doesn't.

    I don't have Caly 3 and so replace it with a delica 4 as I think they both have similar size.

    Here is the size comparison of a small sebenza with DF2, techno, chaparral and delica 4, closed and open.
