KnifeArt.com is pleased to offer the beautiful and highly functional small Inkosi knife. The design is from Chris Reeve Knives, who was born and raised in an area of South Africa where Zulu is the prominent language, the word Inkosi means "the Chief" in Zulu, and this knife is truly the chief. With lots of blade packed into its small size, the Chris Reeve Small Inkosi knife is perfect for everyday carry in urban or office settings. It is a compact lil' tank!
The small Inkosi's 2.8-inch blade is ground using Reeve's special Hollow Grind technology, using a shallow radius to produce a strong blade that is halfway between a standard hollow grind and a flat grind. The small Inkosi knife boasts a blade of CPM S45VN stainless steel with an RC of 60-61, making it tough and durable but offering great edge retention and sharpness. The small Inkosi knife features sandblasted 6Al4V Titanium handles with 303 stainless steel hardware, accented by Chris Reeve's signature anodized blue titanium. The blasted handles provide for a matte texture and a positive grip.
The small inkosi knife is also available with Chris Reeve's Insingo blade design, with a long, curving shape excellent for slicing. Insingo is the Zulu word for "razor," and the Insingo blade sharpens to a razor edge with great edge retention. The Insingo blade adds style and beauty to the Insingo, providing a sleek, sophisticated knife perfect for everyday carry and slicing needs.
The Inkosi knife, built with a 97RC ceramic ball end lock, improves on Reeve's Integral Lock system featured on his other knives.
The Chris Reeve Small Inkosi knife is available for both left- and right-handed carry. The mounted pocket clip rests on the back face of the Inkosi, preventing any pressure on the lock bar. With a folded length of 3.75 inches and a weight of 3 ounces, the Small Inkosi is the perfect addition to your everyday carry options.
The Small Inkosi is sleek, slim, and light, making it a practical choice for everyday carry and applications. KnifeArt.com is an authorized Chris Reeve dealer, offering same business day free shipping, easy exchanges, and a select inventory of the finest quality knives and tactical products.
First, the folks at KnifeArt always seem to be accurate on whether their items are andquot;in stockandquot; or not unlike a few other online stores. And, have always shipped out my orders immediately. I have only used this knife a few times and it is a high quality, good handling- sharp knife. It is easy to carry the Titanium framed knife with the clip and is so smooth to flip open. I personally carry two folding clip knifes. I generally use the other knife (0350TSST ZT) for most grunt work and the CR knife for precision cuts or special jobs but would not hesitate to use it for other jobs as well. This is only my 4th or 5th knife purchased from KnifeArt and I am completely satisfied with my purchases thus far and plan on ordering more knifes later. Thanks KnifeArt, ZT, CR, Emerson and others.
This is my first Insingo blade. I like it! My next Chris Reeve knife will also have the Insingo blade. The false edge on the top of the tip is for opening boxes, etc., without dulling the sharp tip. And, what can be said about Chris Reeve Knives that has not already been said so many times? They are wonderful knives in every respect.
I've carried Kershaw knives for years, particularly the 5200S which is no longer in production. I work in an office and so I needed a knife that wasn't too bulky and could fit comfortably in my pocket. Using a pocket clip simply doesn't fly in this setting. This knife is perfect. It's beautiful, elegant, and not scary or intimidating if I have to pull it out in front of coworkers. Knifeart's delivery was quick and their customer service was top notch. I will buy this knife over and over again.
