In June 2019 at the BLADE Show, Chris Reeve Knives introduced the latest in its flagship line. Marking 31 years of knife making experience that has followed Chris Reeve Knives with a legacy laden in major industry awards and accomplishments in being one of the best everyday carry knives on the market, the Sebenza 31 was an improvement over its predecessors in design as well as construction. With improved machinery and techniques, the Sebenza 31 starts with even higher tolerances than the 21.
In working with Crucible Industries, Chris Reeve Knives has used CPM-45VN stainless steel to provide a blade that is incredibly tough as well as hard. With an HRC of 59-60, this high vanadium and niobium tool steel resists chips, marring, and retains its razor-sharp blade cut after cut. The drop point blade is hollow ground, providing a thin profile cutting surface and its stonewash finish makes it even more corrosion resistant for use in all sorts of conditions. The Small Sebenza 31 is the smaller, more everyday carry-friendly knife in this line. With an overall length of 6.875" and a blade length of 2.94", this 3oz knife fits nicely in your pocket when folded and even nicer in your hand when you are ready to use it.
The handle is made from 6AI4V blasted titanium which provides excellent strength to weight ratio as well as corrosion resistance. This Sebenza 31 has natural canvas micarta inlays. The frame lock incorporates a 1/8" ceramic ball to reduce abrasion between titanium and steel and gives you a reliable, solid lock use after use. The titanium pocket clip is nice for deep-pocket, tip-up carry and has been offset to give you a better feel in your hand than previous designs. The Small Sebenza 31 is available in right or left-handed designs with a myriad of customization options available. Chris Reeve Knives allow you to customize with spacers, thumb studs, and even replacement perforated bronze phosphor bushings, so you can adjust the knife exactly how you want it in the field. Chris Reeve Knives are proudly made in Boise, ID, USA.

What can be said about the Sebenza that hasn't been said already. I'll just say i am very pleased with it. This small version is, in my mind, the epitome of a gentlemen's knife. And KnifeArt shipped it within a couple hours of my order. Amazing!
