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
About CPM S45VN: CPM S45VN is stainless steel that is basically a product improved version of CPM S30V. Chris Reeve worked with Crucible steel to refine the alloy mixture. There is an addition of Niobium to the alloy which results in better edge retention and toughness as well as corrosion resistance when compared to CPM S30V.
