The Large Inkosi folding knife launched in June 2016 as the successor to the Sebenza 25 knife model. Inkosi means 'The Chief' in Zulu and puts all of the best CRK technology into a large folding knife with a 3.625" blade. The large inkosi is a full sized folding knife that will comfortably transition from everyday carry to field carry with a blade length that can handle most cutting tasks.
The Large Inkosi has a robust stop pin, twin oversize phosphor bronze perforated bushings and a pocket clip that is better positioned to rest away from the lockbar.
The Inkosi features a drop point blade that is deployed using ambidextrous dual titanium thumb lugs. Front and center on this knife, the American-made blade steel is S35VN crucible particle metal stainless steel, specially designed for high-end knives. The blade is heat treated to a RC of 59-60 for outstanding edge retention. The 3.56mm blade stock has large hollow grinds, a grind that has the best of both worlds; the cutting performance of a flat grind with the strength of a hollow grind. The Inkosi has a clean stonewashed blade finish that hides scratches but provides a durable cutting finish. The top of the blade has robust jimping that gives the user a positive grip and handling.
The handle of the Reeve folder are two perfectly flat slabs of 6Al4V alloy titanium that is blasted a matte gray finish, they feature inlays of raised natural canvas micarta. The raised inlays provide the user with a thick, enhanced grip. The lockbar features the bank vault lockup that CRK is known for. 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 oversized pivot bushings have larger perforations in the washers/bushings reduce friction, store more lubricant and offer space for small dirt particles to move away from the blade/washer interface. The frame locking folding knife has a 416 heat treated stainless steel stop pin that is increased thickness and more robust.
