The Chris Reeve Inkosi is the New Flagship Folder
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.
