Perfectly balanced and absolutely beautiful! The Chris Reeve Inkosi folder has claimed the position of Chief alongside the iconic Sebenza. The Inkosi pushes the characteristics of the Integral Lock, blade strength, pivot and lock tolerances as well as overall ergonomics.
The Inkosi folder is available in a large and small version, just like the Sebenza. It boasts a carefully developed hollow grind, strengthened pivot and sturdy lock up. While challenging the standards of the Integral Lock, the Inkosi is the most over built 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 Chris Reeve's Large Hollow Grind technology, they use a shallow radius to add more strength to the blade, making it half way between a flat grind and their standard hollow grind. The Inkosi features the sandblasted matte gray handles. Comes with the Chris Reeve microfiber cloth. See it at OsoGrandeKnives.

Just In! The new Delica 4 Wharncliffe folders, this variation is available in your choice of fully serrated or plainedge blade configurations. The Delica4 Wharncliffe knife features a flat-ground Wharncliffe-style blade crafted from VG10 stainless steel.
The perfectly straight cutting edge of this blade profile provides the maximum transfer of cutting pressure--all the way to the tip--and provides an acute point that excels at detailed work.

The Cold Steel 4-MAX is the first of a new series of Custom Classic folding knives made right here in the USA. Developed with one goal in mind - to deliver the maximum strength and highest performance within a 4" blade limit - the 4-MAX is built rock solid with a massive Tri-Ad lock. The action is silky smooth and the ergos are spot on.
The 4-Max's extra thick, extra wide, drop point blade is made from USA CPM20cv steel - offering a near perfect balance between durability and edge holding performance. This over-built beast is without a doubt the strongest knife that Cold Steel has ever produced and perhaps one of the strongest 4" folding knives in the world! See it at OsoGrandeKnives.
The Stedemon SHY IV is a high-quality knife with a sturdy build. It's a tough tactical folding knife that is exceptionally beautiful.

The New Zome Endura is based on the classic Spyderco Endura 4 and it needs no introduction. The Zome Endura has the same FRN handles but they have been artfully sytled using the traditional Japanese craft of zome – a method of dyeing textile materials with natural sources. Japanese artisans individually dyed each knife in the style of hiki-zome, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind pattern on every handle. Check them out at OsoGrandeKnives.com.

The winner of this weeks "Killer Knife" goes to the venerable Ontario Blackbird SK-5 Noir Survival Knife. The Blackbird Noir is a no frills fixed blade designed for outdoor uses such as bushcrafting, camping and survival. It also can be classified as an EDC fixed blade. It has a full-tang blade made of 154CM stainless so it will perform with minimal maintenance in a variety of locations. The canvas Micarta scales provide excellent grip traction. The blade is not as thick as some but it measures in at .130" and it is flat ground so it slices a variety of materials with ease. Both the knife and the sheath are made in the USA by Ontario Knife Company and Hedgehog Leather. Check it out at OsoGrandeKnives.
