The Chris Reeve Small Inkosi is a new model with a blade length of 2.75" with many of the features of the significantly larger Sebenza 25 - some people even informally call it the 'small sebenza 25'. 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, yet is smaller than 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 satin finished 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 its 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 raised micarta inlays provide enhanced grip for positive handling.

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. 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  Chris Reeves Inkosi, Chris Reeve Knives Small Inkosi - Black Micarta Folding Knife
Posted By:

This is my first plunge into the Chris Reeve Knife collection and so I chose this one due to some of the great revues Ive read online and because the micarta scale inserts made it a little bit extra special. Wasn't ready to take the plunge on a CR top of the range knife just yet. My first impression upon opening the box was that this beauty is allot smaller than I expected, Honestly I did feel a little disappointed at first. Purely because of the size that I had ordered, this is my doing and no reflection on the knife itsself. The quality and workmanship is superb and without question. It is a gorgeous piece of engineering. At first it felt a little awkward in hand due to it being a small knife and I've had to play around with it so that I can get a proper feel and handle on the knife. Ive been carrying and playing with it for a week now and it has really begun to grow on me, the more I look at it and play with it the more I'm loving it.If you looking for a smallish EDC of superb craftsmanship and quality then this is the one for you. Now that I've had it for this past week, Im truly loving this little gorgeous baby even to the extent that Ive already purchased my second CR knife in the bigger Umnumzaan. If its anything like this baby I can see the family growing substantially.
