We all know about the Chris Reeve Sebenza. This Titanium-framed folder is legendary for its strength, its S35VN blade, and its very high price. Through the efforts of a friend, I’ve gotten my hands on a well-used Sebenza which has probably never left its owner’s pocket for this long before. (Thanks, buddy! You’ll get it back soon!)
This is the Titanium frame-lock that makes this knife so bomb-proof. I haven’t seen any Benchmade-style destruction test videos, but my money says the blade will break or deform before that slab of Titanium frame gives way.
I haven’t done any cutting tests yet. The Sebenza arrived somewhat dull, and I want to have a really good edge on it before I put it through its cutting paces. The S35VN blade is a bit of a chore to sharpen.
