- 2.75" Blade, Great Everday Carry Size
- Titanium Framelock & Handle
- Oversized Bushings
- Ceramic Lockbar Interface

The Chris Reeve Sebenza Inkosi is a new model with a blade length of 2.75". The Inkosi is a new family of folding knives from Chris Reeve that will claim the position of "Chief" alongside the iconic Sebenza. Inkosi is the Zulu word for Chief.

The Inkosi comes in with a closed size of 3.875" and a weight of 3.1 oz, a great size and weight for everyday pocket carry - in the sub 3" blade size range. The CRK 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") on this knife 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 Chris Reeve Inkosi has a heat treated stainless steel stop pin that will handle the rigors of opening and closing.

Refined design and 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 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 it's 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  The perfect small EDC!, Chris Reeve Inkosi - 2.75\" Frame Locking Folding Knife - S35VN Steel
Posted By:

This is a fantastic knife with marked improvements on even the latest Sebenza 25. The phosphor bronze washers are identical and foolproof. Unlike the 25, the washers don't have any angled pieces that can be bent--they are flat and easy to position. The blade is designed perfectly and there is no need to center the blade at all. The clip is positioned so that it doesn't make direct contact with the lockbar, cutting down on unnecessary pressure and wear on the lockbar mechanism. Again, CRK rethought and refined the fantastic elements of the Sebenza 25 and put them into the Inkosi. As expected, it is built like a tank--everything about this small knife is 'overbuilt' as you would expect from Chris Reeve. It is super-strong and perfect in just about every way. I was completely and pleasantly surprised by this knife. Even though it is considered 'small' with (IMHO) a perfect 2.75" blade, it fits in my rather large hands securely and comfortably. This is not a full-size folder--I have a number of high-end larger folders and sometimes it feels like you're pulling out a sword in public to do small tasks. I bought this knife as an all-around user. It just happens to be worth every cent of $375. If you're hesitating to buy this knife, so was I. Now I'm a happy owner/user!

my hand size is between a large and extra large...large fits length extra large fit width. so i was a little concerned with the the smaller version of the Sabinza "Small". while it is slightly smaller it feels great in the hand when carving and cutting. highly recommend. my only complaint is that the small cord lanyard flips inside my pocket unlike the Sabenza small. guess ill get a slightly longer cord.

5  New Sebenza growing on me!, Chris Reeve Inkosi - 2.75\" Frame Locking Folding Knife - S35VN Steel

After dialing in the knife it oozes quality and great design detail. I am a passionate collector and have a lot of knives in this general category. At first the knife was stiff and and the detent seemed wrong. I am a knife maker and am confident in disassembly and reassembly so I "re-lubed" and adjusted and now the knife is a small marvel. It is compact, light, liquid smooth and yet robust enough to do real cutting work. I am not sure why mine was so stiff out of the box and could be a fluke. By the way I did spend three days just opening and closing the knife (literally 100's of times) to break it in before lubing and adjusting the knife, so I am not a rookie to the process of breaking in a knife.

Another great transaction with KNIFEART, superfast shipping, well packaged. I have two other Chris Reeve knives and this one just moved up to the top of my EDC, just the right size. The blasted titanium handle has just enough texture. Super sharp 2.75" blade - did the paper cutting test in front of my 11 year old son, he said "WOW", that's says it all. Thanks Knifeart.
