CRKINKOSIL: Large Inkosi Folding Knife
Chris Reeve Knives
 
The Inkosi is a family of folding knives that will claim the position of Chief alongside the iconic Sebenza. This design continues to push the characteristics of the Integral Lock, blade strength, pivot and lock tolerances as well as overall ergonomics.

A carefully developed hollow grind, strengthened pivot, and sturdy lock up were the starting points for this family of Inkosi folding knives. While challenging the standards of the Integral Lock, the Inkosi is the most overbuilt knife of its kind, a true testament of strength. Using a ceramic ball as an interface for the lock bar to the blade tang, it ensures a lifetime of consistent lock up.
 
This is the first time Chris Reeve has been able to use twin, oversized washers with an Integral lock. The washer diameter is wider than the blade securing zero sideways play. With larger lubrication holes there is even less surface area of friction. With the Large Hollow Grind technology, they use a shallow radius to add more strength to the blade, making it halfway between a flat grind and a standard hollow grind.
Features
  • At 97HRC, the strength of the ceramic ball end lock privides a lifetime of consistent lock up
  • Mounted Pocket Clip rests on the back face, eliminating the possibility of pressure on the lockbar and provides a more ergonomic grip
  • Large Hollow Grind, a more shallow radiused grind, provides a combination of strength from a flat grind with proven sharpening longevity from a hollow grind
  • Twin over-sized Phosphor-bronze washers
  • Slip Through Stop Pin
  • Large Pivot

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
My 2nd CRK, 1st of their folders.
I'm a retired/disabled (by multiple sclerosis) police officer, SWAT sniper, former USMC scout/sniper. I've carried a lot of knives from all types of makers in all types of environments and this has to be best folder I've ever owned! The quality of this knife is evident at first inspection! The box contents alone show the quality of manufacture you are dealing with in Chris Reeve Knives. Class, precision, quality and function, it tops them all!

Chris Reeve Large Inkosi is a Joy to Handle
I was about to buy my first Chris Reeve, the Sebenza 25 for its thicker blade than the Sebenza 21, when knifecenter.com alerted me to the soon to be released Inkosi. It had the basic dimensions of the Sebenza 25 with some improvements: 1) clip that rests on back face rather than lockbar, giving it a better hand feel and less pressure on lockbar, 2) a grind between flat and hollow giving sharpness and blade strength, and 3) new washers and pins for smoothing action. I pre-ordered and after three weeks was sent one which arrived from VA to my door in Stockholm, Sweden in four days. Incredible. The knife is quality quality quality and feels like it in every action, opening, closing, cutting. I will use it for sailing and camping in the Stockholm Archipelago. Lives up to the reputation of Chris Reeve knives. I must complement knifecenter.com on maintaining a wonderful database of knives to help in the comparison before purchase. All in all it was a wonderful purchase experience. Bought a fine leather sheath with it (reviewed separately).
