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 59-60 RC, 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.
Made from stabilized wood and profiled to fit precisely inside handle pockets, the Sebenza 31 with Bog Oak blends utilitarian needs with clean lines and hand polished finishes. Bog Oak is rare wood in the beginning stages of fossilization. Buried and preserved in a peat bog for hundreds or sometimes thousands of years, Bog Oak’s hues are deep brown to almost black wood. Wood Inlays are made from natural materials, so you can expect a variation in color and wood grain.
