CRKINKOSI: Small 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, over-sized 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

Semi-Custom
Semi-Custom
Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
Frame Lock

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip

A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Great small CRK for work
I have several sebenzas, both small and large and an Umnumzaan in addition to this knife. This one probably gets the most pocket time of any of them. It's great for work in an office environment. Solid like all other CRK knives and a lot of knife for how small it carries.

Reviewer below most likely got a clone knife
Small well built folder with the classic Chris Reeve bank vault feel. Ceramic ball, angled pocket clip, floating stop pin, contoured handles and oversized pivot and washers. The 21st century Sebenza

Quality of Chris Reeve is history
My new Inkosi has loose thumb stub, drop out when I open it new from box. I wonder what's happening after Chris retired.
