Chris Reeve Sebenza 31 Natural Canvas Micarta Small
Sebenza means "work" in Zulu and the Sebenza was designed, and is crafted, to do just that. All Chris Reeve knives are built using modern precision production methods with the same attention to detail and care that we expect from custom knifemakers. Sebenza has earned a worldwide reputation for solid performance and is known for a "bank vault" sound and feel. In 2009, Crucible and Chris Reeve introduced an ever so slightly superior version of the excellent S30V steel and named it S35VN. By using a much finer grain structure and adding small quantities of niobium (hence the "N") they were able to make the outstanding S30V easier to machine, while improving its toughness and ability to sharpen.
The reverse handle side and the clip are anodized gray. The drop point blade is CPM-S35VN at a hardness of 59-60 Rc. The lock is the Reeve Integral lock, usually referred to as a frame-lock, because the lockbar is integral to the reverse side of the handle frame. The handle is 6AL4V titanium, which includes 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium for excellent strength and corrosion resistance in a relatively lightweight handle material. Natural canvas micarta onlays have been attached on both sides of the hande. Each Chris Reeve Sebenza ships in a nice box and includes a 5/64" wrench, fluorinated grease and a microfiber cloth. The pocket clip is positioned for right-handed tip-up carry. Made in the U.S.A.
Blade measures 3" with a closed length of 4". Weighs 3.0 oz.
