Chris Reeve is an emigre from Durban, South Africa. By trade a tool and die maker, who found the need for a climate-friendly blade while serving compulsory service on the border with Angola/Namibia. Relocating to America in 1989, he quickly established himself as a world-class blade-smith. He was one of the first to make a knife from a solid billet of steel. The Green Beret Knive actually the "Yarborough" is awarded to those candidates who successfully complete the Special Forces course. This blade was designed in conjunction with famed maker William Harsey, who also, is no stranger to the special ops community. Among Chris' many achievements was the aiding in the development of Crucible Steel Company's CPM S30V steel. Probably his signature knife is his vaunted Sebenza folder. All Reeve implements, are top-quality blades with impeccable workmanship, which Chris imparts to all his work. He makes a civilian-version of the Yarborough named the Pacific, and yes; they are definitely 'worth-it'!

I think this sums it up, and saved me having to post it. Now, I have to look up the Pacific model. I knew about the famed Sebenza and the Green Beret models.

Reeve was already a famous knife maker before he left South Africa. Anyone here who isn't fairly familiar with him simply isn't very much into custom quality knives.
