The Next Step Forward in the Sebenza lineage: the Sebenza 31!
About this Inlay: The inlaid Sebenzas offer a different look as well as a different feel in the hand. The inlay pieces provide more of a radius than the traditional flat sides of the Sebenza. They are fit into precision machined pockets on each sale and secured. This Sebenza 31 has Macassar ebony wood inlays. It has a nut brown main color with dark brown and black grains. Macassar ebony is an increasingly rare wood, favored for use for guitar fingerboards. It is only found in one region in Indonesia, and while not endangered it is difficult to find suitable trees to harvest, making it a very rare and sought after material.
The Blade: Classic Drop Point profile with wear-hiding stonewashed finish. Gold anodized titanium thumb stud. The Frame: Glass blasted finish looks classy and wears with style! Inlays on both frame sides. Satin frame hardware. Gold anodized lanyard pin and stand off..
About the Sebenza: Since 1990 The Chris Reeve Sebenza (Zulu word for work) has set the standard for what is possible in a precision manufactured folding knife. Chris Reeve developed the Sebenza Integral Lock (commonly referred to as a frame lock) which is concept of a handle slab to be used as the lock bar for the blade resulting in exceptional strength for hard use. Never one to become complacent, Chris Reeve has consistently looked to improve the Sebenza in both materials and design. The new Sebenza 31 model represents the accumulation of more than 30 years of experience and user feedback. It has grown and evolved from it's predecessors, incorporating new elements such as:
Ceramic ball lockbar interface for reliable, durable and smooth lock up and unlock
Offset clip lessen's pressure applied to lock bar for easier manipulation
No presentation side frame fixture hole for more uniform aesthetics
One-piece inlays (for Inlay models) for a classic look
Updated manufacturing processes for even tighter tolerances and simpler parts support down the road
