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 has an heirloom build quality that is ready for use. This Left Handed version comes with a satin finished, drop point, CPM-S45VN stainless steel blade and satin titanium handles with Macassar Ebony inlays.
Brand new, direct from Chris Reeve Knives, USA.
Blade: The small Sebenza 31 delivers just under three inches of polished, shaving sharp cutting edge on the CPM-S45VN drop point blade with a slicing hollow grind that offers extended blade life and performance. Beautifully satin finished grinds complement the inlaid handles while stonewashed flats offer a subtle contrast. Jimping on the thumb ramp enhances traction in use while the polished, smooth crowned spine delivers comfort and a custom feel. A single titanium thumb lug allows the left-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 satin finished and inlaid with Macassar Ebony wood. The front inlay is a large, single piece that lends a sleek elegance to the clean design. 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 gold anodized spacer and lanyard pin. Includes a tube of fluorinated grease, microfiber cloth, information packet and installed black nylon lanyard.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, off-set titanium pocket clip.
CPM S45VN: An evolution in the S30-series of steels from Crucible, S45VN shows improved edge retention and corrosion resistance relative to S35VN with a slight reduction in toughness. Also considered an upgrade to Elmax with similar edge retention but better hardness, corrosion resistance, toughness, and a finer carbide structure (better sharpness).
