Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 Solar System Unique Graphic Pyrite Cabochon 1112-012
Fresh from Chris Reeve Knives this Large Sebenza 21 is outfitted with the Unique Graphic "Solar System". Its front slab features a one-of-a-kind design complete with stars, planets, rings and a Pyrite Cabochon inlay playing the part of the blazing sun in space. This stunner is brand new direct from Chris Reeve Knives.
Blade: The Large version gives its user 3.5 inches of polished, shaving sharp cutting edge built from premium CPM S35VN stainless powder steel. It is hollow ground for supreme sharpness and fully usable for day to day. A thumb ramp on the spine has perfect jimping, nearly an inch and perfect placement. The rest of the spine is crowned, smooth and polished. This version features a single Gold titanium thumb lug opener allowing the user to open the blade from the front side. It operates on a pivot system using oversized bronze washers with grease-filled pockets for smooth, no friction operation. Lock up is always solid and reliable.
Handle: Two thick slabs of titanium feature chamfered edges for a smooth, comfortable grip. Forward cutouts allow the user access to the frame locking mechanism and a comfortable place for fingers to rest. The front piece is hand finished with a unique Solar System color/pattern while the reverse is entirely sandblasted creating a matte grey appearance with very fine texturing. The grip is welcoming in the majority of medium to large hands. The Integral Frame Lock was created by Mr. Chris Reeve and continues to be a staple in the knife making industry. It's reliable, easy to use and virtually maintenance free. All titanium hardware comes standard on the Sebenza including the gold barrel spacer and lanyard-attached spacer at the end. A titanium pocket clip is attached to the back for tip up right hand carry. It can be easily removed with the supplied Allen wrench. Also included is a single tube of fluorinated grease, microfiber cloth, large leather slip pouch and information packet.

CPM S35VN: Designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V, S35VN substitutes niobium for vanadium delivering an increase in toughness of about 15-20% with no appreciable loss of wear resistance. Increased toughness means better resistance to edge chipping. Corrosion resistance is on par with S30V.
