Chris Reeve Knives
Sebenza means "work" in Zulu and these knives are intended to do just that. Built with handcrafted care at a production level, the Sebenza 21 has earned a worldwide reputation for rock solid performance and a "bank vault" feel. Offered with a Chad Nichols Stainless Raindrop Damascus hollow-ground blade, the Sebenza 21's blade will retain a sharp edge with easy maintenance. The Sebenza 21 uses the Reeve Integral Lock, which is a lockbar 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. Includes microfiber cloth, leather pouch, fluorinated grease and Allen wrench.
Computer Generated Graphics (CGG) Models
Chris developed his unique style of embellishing Sebenza handles early in the 1990s and now these graphics have become a trademark of Chris Reeve Knives. The graphics are machined into the handles and are enhanced with either color or texture contrast. Colors are achieved by anodizing, a process that involves passing an electrical current through the titanium handle, causing a layer of oxide to form on the surface. The desired color is achieved by selecting a specific voltage and the color is simply reflected light, the spectrum splintered. When the coloring is complete, the handle is hand rubbed to a brilliant polished finish. Silver Contrast designs use a polished finish paired against the sandblasted finish.
Each graphic is "drawn" freehand on a milling machine. Sometimes a cabochon (or two) is inlaid; sometimes it is a gold coin or a diamond. The variations are as endless as the imagination of the artist. Talented and creative, Lisa L'Eveque-Hague has learned many techniques from Chris and has carried the concept on to new levels.
