So you are looking for a quality knife that is compact, light, extremely robust with an outstanding cutting ability for your everyday tasks? You have found the right knife, the Chris Reeve small Inksoi insingo in carbon fiber. The blade provides you with a compact yet capable cutting ability, the combination of the titanium framelock and the carbon fiber maintains strength while keeping the weight to a minimum and the workmanship is something that can only really be fully appreciated in your hands.
The carbon fiber on this knife is likely the first thing that you will notice that is different than a standard small inkosi. Carbon Fiber has been used structurally on this knife in a way that takes advantage of its phenomenal properties. The carbon fiber is extremely rigid and one of the strongest materials for its strength to weight ratio.
Insingo Blade Shape
The insingo blade shape is one of CRK's most popular blade shapes in their knife line. Designed by Rodney Connelley and Chris Reeve, it provides a precise curvature for even slicing throughout the curvature of the blade length. The tip on the insingo is pointed yet reinforced for excellent piercing and fine cutting tasks at the tip. The blade grinds on this knife are large hollow grinds that combine the best of both worlds; a hollow grind and the flat grind. The blade steel that is used on this Reeve EDC is American-made CPM S35VN steel. Stainless CPM S35VN steel is an excellent cutlery steel that provides a balanced approach to the properties of knife steel. The sub 3" blade length, coming in at 2.8" is compact yet stronger. The inkosi has an 8% thicker blade stock than the small sebenza 21 which makes the blade much stronger.
Lock and Carry
This Inkosi knife has the legendary Reeve integral framelock with the added benefits of a ceramic lock bar interface that increases the lock life and reduces wear. The carbon fiber inkosi also has dual anodized titanium thumb lugs for easy right or left handed opening. The folding knife is fitted with a pocketclip and black cord lanyard and a titanium bead is an added touch on this exclusive knife in our Foundry Gear series.
Top of the Line Quality
This American-made knife is quality crafted in Boise, Idaho and is well know for their high level of tolerances, fit and finish and a lifetime warranty that really can't be beaten. After years of work, this knife can be sent in for a full tune-up, 'spa treatment' and it comes back ready to serve another lifetime. Make the small inkosi a big part of your everyday carry rotation.
