Representing over 30 years of experience designing and crafting legendary knives, Chris Reeve's Large Inkosi Tanto Blade has a reinforced blade tip for rugged use. Meaning "chief" in Zulu, the Inkosi Tanto is a beast of a pocket folder, perfect for utility, tactical, outdoors, and general everyday carry.
Tanto Blade + Inkosi Build
The Large Inkosi Tanto features a 3.6-inch S45VN stainless steel blade, heat-treated to a Rockwell Hardness rating of 59-60. The blade sharpens, cleans easily and holds its razor-like edge extremely well, requiring resharpening only sparingly. The sleek, Tanto blade shape adds extra strength to the tip, allowing for excellent puncturing, chisel-like cutting and slicing capabilities. With exceptional resistance to wear and corrosion, the Inkosi Tanto holds its place firmly as the chief among heavy-duty pocket folders. This is CRK's heavy-duty, large folding knife with a rugged tanto blade shape.
Inkosi Handle & Carry
Crafted from lightweight, aerospace-grade 6Al4V titanium, the Inkosi Tanto's 4.8-inch handle allows for a sturdy, uncompromising grip while the blade is in use. Built with Chris Reeve's Integral Lock, a system that offers a sturdier hold than more traditional liner locks, the Large Inkosi's blade is held tightly and securely in place, both when closed and deployed; lessened susceptibility to slippage or accidental means the Inkosi Tanto will keep working after other knives have thrown in the towel. The inkosi model features the ceramic lock bar interface that provides exceptional lock longevity and security.
Dual thumb studs accommodate easy opening and closing for right-handers and southpaws alike. A sleek, titanium pocket clip and lanyard hole allow for a multitude of carry options and an overall weight of just under 5 ounces allow for comfortable carry wherever you go.
Chris Reeve's Large Inkosi with a tanto blade is a hard-working, heavy-duty pocket folder designed to lead the pack in any situation. Crafted in America with the highest quality materials a commitment to craftsmanship and performance, this Tanto is built to withstand the harshest conditions without backing down.

The knife is superb in almost every way, except ergonomics. The thumb stud and frame lock are hotspots. I have been playing with it to toughen my hand so that it no longer hurts to fiddle with, but for this kind of money you should not have to do that. My old Spyderco Native 5 is super comfortable at ~25% of the cost. Outside of that, it looks awesome, fit and finish are outstanding and it came super sharp. It really does feel like a lifetime knife.
My first crk and I really like it.
Knifeart is a great company, fast shipping knife is perfect.
A Chris Reeve is not for someone who just wants a cheap beater of a knife. You could buy an Ontario Rat and get all the knife your ever gonna need for less than $50. When you spend $500ish on a pocket knife you not just buying a knife your buying a piece of art, and Chris Reeve is a piece of art! When you hold it in your hand you first notice the sleek beautiful lines and how good it feels in your hand. Then steel is strong an holds an edge well but its not difficult to sharpen. The lock is solid and clicks into place with authority and will not fail you. The fit and finish is superb and when you look at the knife as a whole you see where your money went. Lets face it, $500 is a lot of money and I don't know about you but I had to save up to get mine but I'm glad I did. I will have this knife for many years to come and I know it will never fail me.
Iím very pleased with my first knife!!
