Those are some nice looking knives, then again his always are.

Chris Reeves collaborated with Shirogorov on some knives with flippers.  They are really nice, but the price tag is too high for me if you can even find one.

 :drool: If I Manage to stick to my New Years resolution to go the whole of this year without buying any knives or tools, a sebenza 31 will be my first purchase of 2021. Hopefully they should be in the stores by then.

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

The Sebenza 31 has been a big knife for Chris Reeve. It's uber popular, so much so, that they're not producing a new model this year. But these new inlays are beautiful, and they continue the superb Chris Reeve quality that folks love.

The new inlay options are Box Elder Burl, Macassar Ebony and "Unique".

These models cost between $550-$600 USD.

These knives feel so good in your hand. They're weighted perfectly. And I know they are built to last, and built to be used. But I think I'd have a tough time using these beauties!

I just recently (a couple of weeks ago) took delivery of a sebenza 21 as I could not find a 31 in stock anywhere. But when I realised they were going to stop manufacturing the 21 in favour of the 31 I figured I better get a 21 while still available rather than wait for a 31.

https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,50835.msg2071939.html#msg2071939

 The basic plain 31 is basically a 21 with a ceramic ball embedded in the frame lock to stop it wearing with use and a slight difference in the positioning of the pocket clip (not over the frame lock).
The biggest difference is in the inlaid versions as the 31s inlay is one larger slab compared to the two smaller inlays of the 21.

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

True, I am sure 31 will hit the market this year, might have seen it listed already.  CRK has always been enjoying high demand, they only brought out a handful models over the last few decades, I doubt we will see another model after 31 anytime soon.  Maybe a small 31?

Poncho the price is definitely a bitter pill to swallow. But as Megan says you can feel the quality.

Another great thing about chris reeve knives is where as some manufacturers glue their knifes up with threadlock and taking them apart voids the warranty and can often strips the screws.

Chris openly encourages you to disassemble your knives for maintenance. He does not use threadlock and even supplies the Allen key (one because he uses just one size for all the fixings in the sebenza construction) to do it with.

He also uses S35 steel (a steel he helped develop if I am correct) over some of the newer even harder steels as he rates its toughness and user serviceability over the now more fashionable steels.

Here in the uk he won’t let you buy direct from him but directs you to his exclusive UK importer Framer Knives and there stock is limited and had no 31s last time I checked. I think they have released the new 31 in both large and small and he has sold them as quick as he can make them hence not seeing any in his usual larger US retailers. Hopefully I will be able to buy one from framer knives next year as I was bent over by uk customs when recently importing the the 21 from the US

Sorry to hear about the custom issue, maybe it's the lock that raising all the fuss.  I got the Inkosi with micarta inlay, and it does make the knife feel better in hand.  Hope the local dealer will stock up soon for UK market.

Thanks, I bought from DLT trading (a great retailer) and factored in the added VAT (value added tax) I knew I would have to pay when it arrived. But did not realise I would have to pay a separate customs tax on top of that. So in the end I paid quit a bit more than I would have done from framer knives.
My fault entirely trying to be clever and save money buying from the States.

DLT indeed is a decent dealer(I'm not affiliated or related to them in anyway), I don't know it make any difference, but Lamnia is a pretty good dealer based in Europe which I like too.

I would like a plain Ti version like the 21 was...

Never could afford the 21, and it seems if I can afford a 31 now, I HAVE to choose a design...
