Chris Reeve L31-1500 Large Sebenza 31 CGG Rhino Drop Point
Sebenza means “work” in Zulu and these knives are intended to do just that. Built with handcrafted care at a production level, the Sebenza 31 has earned a worldwide reputation for rock-solid performance and a ‘bank vault’ feel. Offered with a CPM-S35VN hollow-ground blade at a 59-60HRC, the Sebenza 31’s blade will retain a sharp edge with easy maintenance. The Sebenza 31 uses the Reeve Integral Lock, which is a lock bar integral to the back handle. Pre-bending at the end of the slot causes the spring to move to the base of the blade, thereby locking the blade open. It was a revolutionary design 31 years ago and through numerous refinements over the years, this is the best Sebenza created thus far.
Computer Generated Graphic (CGG) Models
The introduction of CNC programmed designs gave Chris Reeve the ability to bring exactly consistent designs to the table. These designs are repeatable and may be ordered by name. As the computer age is more and more upon us, the embracing of what the computer can do for us is vital as an artist. The colors of the thumb lugs and back spacers are matched to the respective designs and will not be varied, nor can they accept requests for changes in color or the addition of inlays.
Laser engraved and finished with a combination of laser anodizing and sandblasted handles, the Sebenza 31 CGG “Rhino” is number 3 of 5 in the Chris Reeve Knives Big Five series. The African Big Five is known to big game hunters as the most difficult animals to hunt on foot. Outside of its massive stature, the Rhino’s thick, hard to puncture protective skin, horns, and big teeth make it a tough opponent to hunt in the wild.
