The Chris Reeve Small Inkosi TANTO with BLUE LUGS is a newer model with a blade length of 2.75" with many of the features of the significantly larger Sebenza 25. 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.
The blade stock is 8% thicker on this knife than the similarly sized Small Sebenza 21. As always, CRK selected American-made S35VN steel (Crucible Industries) that has a scratch-hiding stonewashed finish and is heat treated to a rockwell hardness of RC 59-60.
The Chris Reeve Inkosi Tanto has phosphor bronze washer (bushings) that are the same side 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 Inkosi has a heat treated stainless steel stop pin that will handle the rigors of opening use.
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 it's size, due to the titanium handle, the Reeve Inkosi pocket knife has the strong integral frame locking mechanism that Chris Reeve Knives pioneered and subsequently changed the knife industry with.
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.
True North Knives proud to offer and represent the Chris Reeve Inkosi as an authorized CRK dealer for the last 20 years.
