This large Sebenza by Chris Reeve is also a conversion auto by Butch Vallotton. It features a tumble finish flats with satin grinds. The customization of this knife includes removing the bead blast from the frame and adding a scale release auto mechanism. The scales are ancient mammoth ivory. Strong lock up. Super fast action. The frame has some scuffing from the customization and the blade has seen some use but it is still extremely sharp. There is a note included with the knife that explains how to remove the auto action from Butch Vallotton. We believe this may be a one of a kind customized Sebenza. Blade Steel: 0.125 S30V @ 58-59 RC"

Reeve, Chris
Chris Reeve Knives began operations on January 1, 1984, in a one-car garage in Durban, South Africa, when Chris moved from full-time Tool and Die Maker/part time knife maker to full-time knife maker. For a couple years he was the only employee but gradually and steadily, the company has grown to reach its present position as a well equipped manufacturing company and a noted brand in the industry. The road between 1984 and today has not always been smooth. For many years, the endeavor was under-funded but with determination, Chris and Anne put all they had into producing the best knives possible, within the resources available. In March 1989, they moved from their native South Africa and settled in Boise, Idaho. That move in itself was a major undertaking but vital for the future of the company. Chris has always "pushed the envelope". Whether on a motorcycle or behind a belt grinder, he dreamed of being a world champion. He did not win a motorcycle world championship but in many respects, the standing of CRK today represents one. His induction into the Cutlery Hall of Fame in June 2015 could be considered his championship trophy. The single thought in Chris' mind has always been to design every model with deliberation, taking into account how the knife works, its intended purpose and the most appropriate materials. On this foundation, CRK is a vibrant business, has a great staff of well-trained employees, and remains a company with a worldwide reputation for raising the standards bar - "pushing the envelope" - for the industry.
