Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 31 Black Canvas Micarta Inlay S45VN Drop Point Folder
The Sebenza 31 is not a completely new model, but rather an update to the time-tested and proven design of the classic Sebenza 21. The Sebenza 31 has updated features including: Ceramic Ball Interface from the Umnumzaan/Inkosi, off-set clip design, improved ergonomics, removal of fixturing hole on front handle, re-designed inlays (select models) and tighter tolerances thanks to improved machining processes. Sebenza means "work" in Zulu and the model 31 will see plenty of work as it is built with heirloom quality to last. This version comes with a drop point, CPM-S45VN stainless steel blade and blasted titanium handles with Black Canvas Micarta inlays.
Brand new, direct from Chris Reeve Knives. Proudly Made in the USA.
Blade: The large Sebenza 31 delivers just over 3.5 inches of polished, shaving sharp cutting edge on the CPM-S45VN drop point blade. The deep hollow grind offers exceptional slicing performance and extended life through sharpening and use. The blade is fully stonewashed to hide wear from use while continuing to look great while the jimped thumb ramp offers traction and comfort. The rest of the spine is crowned, smooth and polished for a custom feel. A single silver anodized titanium thumb lug allows the right handed user to open and operate the blade easily. It moves on a pivot system using oversize bronze washers with grease-filled pockets for a smooth, hydraulic operation.
Handle: The dual slabs of 6AL4V titanium are inlaid with Black Canvas Micarta. The front inlay is a large, single piece providing a sleek yet rugged look and enhanced traction. The Reeve Integral Lock utilizes the titanium frame to deliver "bank vault" like lockup. An upgraded Ceramic Ball Interface increases the reliability and life of the lock while offering an extra smooth operation of both lock and blade. The construction is completed with full titanium hardware including a silver spacer and lanyard pin. A black nylon lanyard comes installed.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up only, Off-set Titanium pocket clip.
Included is a single tube of fluorinated grease, Loctite, Allen key, microfiber cloth and information packet.
CPM-S45VN: An evolution in Crucible's S30-series, S45VN shows improved edge retention and corrosion resistance relative to S35VN and offers an upgrade to Elmax with better hardness, corrosion resistance, toughness, and sharpness with similar edge retention.
