Sebenza in 1987 but didn't have the opportunity to put it into production until 1990." Chris informs.
A full-length internal liner reinforces the Chris Reeve-style integral lock
. Overall length is 8" with a blade length of 3 3/8" and a weight of 5 oz.
This exclusive folder sports a slick, modified Wharncliff "Insingo" blade designed by younger brother Rodney, who wanted to design a Sebenza blade both "tough and useful for many tasks." It is mated to a Sebenza 21 frame which has Reeve's signature Integral Lock
(also referred to as a frame-lock) on the Titanium back side but with a Carbon Fiber slab on the top that knocks 0.61 ounces off the weight of the original.
