The Chris Reeve Small Inkosi is an everyday carry folding knife with a blade length of 2.75" with many of the features of the Large Inkosi. The Inkosi is a new family of folding knives from Chris Reeve that will claim the "chief" position of Chief alongside the iconic Sebenza - Inkosi is the Zulu word for Chief. Our exclusive model of Inkosi comes with a weave carbon fiber handle on the front - with a full integral lock titanium on the locking side. This reduces the weight significantly, without compromising on the strength. The Carbon Fiber Inkosi is bank vault solid. This is a knife that really needs to be held to be appreciated. It is lighter in the hand - yet the carbon fiber is incredibly rigid and true. Chris Reeve Knives fully machines and laps the textured carbon fiber scales to make sure the tolerances are up to their high standards and provides an excellent grip.

The CF Inkosi comes in with a closed size of 3.75" and a weight of 2.3 oz, a great size and weight for everyday pocket carry - in the sub 3" blade size range. The CRK Small Inkosi features a drop-point blade shape with razor sharp "Large Hollow Grinds", a grind that blends the best of hollow and flat grinds. Don't let the blade length mislead you, the blade stock is 8% thicker (coming in at .0.128") than the similarly sized Small Sebenza 21. The CRK team selected American-made S35VN steel (Crucible Industries) that has a scratch-hiding fine stonewashed finish and is heat treated to a Rockwell hardness of RC 59-60.

The Chris Reeve Inkosi has phosphor bronze washer (bushings) that are the same size on both the lock and handle size, this pivot construction brings additional stability to the blade and allows the washers to hold lubricant to reduce opening friction. One-eighth inch ceramic ball acts as the interface between the lock bar and the blade and doubles to drop into the detent, ensuring the blade stays in place when closed. The ceramic lock interface provides the user with a greatly increased lock life. The Chris Reeve Inkosi has a heat treated stainless steel stop pin that will handle the rigors of opening use.

Refined design, precision construction are all part of this American-made pocket knife. The Inkosi folding knife features dual ambidextrous thumb studs, allowing the user to easily open the knife either right or left handed. The thumb studs are blue anodized titanium. The carbon fiber inkosi comes with a black cord lanyard along with a machined titanium bead. The small Inkosi knife has a blasted titanium pocket clip mounted for tip up carry and angled in a manner that allows the clip to rest on the handle - not the lock bar. Light for its size, due to the titanium handle, the Reeve Inkosi pocket knife has the strong integral frame locking mechanism that Chris Reeve pioneered and subsequently changed the knife industry with.

The Inkosi comes with hex tools for disassembly and cleaning, Loctite, CRK fluorinated grease and a chamois cloth. Additionally, the Inkosi has a hand tied black cord lanyard attached to the knife that allows easy removal on the knife from your pocket. KnifeArt.com is proud to offer and represent the Chris Reeve Inkosi as an authorized dealer. The Inkosi is made with precision and pride in Boise, Idaho U.S.A

5  A most excellent knife, Chris Reeve Carbon Fiber Small Inkosi - Exclusive Folding Knife
Posted By:

I saw the small Inkosi while looking at a Sabenza. I bought the Inkosi instead. It is a wonderful knife. It has made its way into my EDC, kicking out a James Brand and a Kershaw. Strong work by Chris Reeves!

This is a perfect daily carry knife, and the workmanship is superb (as you would expect from CR). The lanyard and included sheath make a nice package (I took the clip off mine), and it is quite light. Anything bigger would be too big for my needs. Shipping was extremely fast, and the Knifeart was very helpful when the Post Office had an issue with delivery.

My favorite knife was the Small Inkosi. When Knifeart.com got the carbon fiber version in I HAD to have one. Like all CRK's the fit and finish is perfect, and the new CF looks great. Add to that the custom lanyard and ring, and this is one gorgeous blade. This was my first purchase from knifeart, and it will NOT be my last. The customer service and professionalism are the best in the business. Thanks again guys!
