Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Best folding knife that I own.
Like a lot of people, I waited a long time to pull the trigger on a Chris Reeve Knife. I could never justify the cost when there were so many “similar” options out there. However, after trial and error and never really being able to find the “perfect” edc for me. I decided to give CRK a try. After all, there had to be something to these knives if people have been carrying virtually the same model for about 30 years. My small inkosi Is the knife center exclusive with a FDE coating. I love that it’s different than the standard blue, grey and satin models but I also love that it’s subtle and not too flashy. The ergonomics are great and the size is perfect for everyday carry. The insingo blade shape is awesome and has a utilitarian feel to me. I prefer the size and handle shape of the Inkosi over the Sabenza but that’s strictly personal preference. The action is buttery smooth and everything about the knife is solid and screams quality. The lockup is sturdy and the included takedown tools make maintenance and cleaning a breeze. CRK also includes thread locker and grease with each knife. No blade play. No off center blades. No weak or weird action. Just a quality knife that’s built to last. If you buy one knife in your lifetime, it should be a Chris Reeve Knife.
