This Large Inkosi folding knife is outfitted with an Insingo blade, and builds on the inherent strengths of the Integral Lock. The Inkosi is a comfortable everyday folder with Chris Reeve Knives' award-winning manufacturing excellence. Inkosi is the Zulu word for Chief and this knife certainly commands respect.

Chris Reeve Knives is continually improving their knives and the Inkosi features a number of refinements:

  • Thicker blade design that utilizes CRK's Large Hollow Grind technology.
  • Oversized phosphor bronze washers with extra-large grease pockets reduce friction and blade play.
  • Ceramic ball lock bar interface adds strength and stability to the locking mechanism
  • Pocket clip rests on the spine rather than contacting the lock bar to avoid undue pressure on the lock.
  • Larger, sturdier stop pin provides a lifetime of secure blade lockup.
  • Standard double thumb lugs for ambidextrous opening.

Expensive, yet worth it!
Everardo B.
There is a huge hype with this knife, and I can see why. Although I havenít held all the big names, this is very nice knife feel. I was very impressed with what I was able to do just this morning. I cut off a small string out of a bag that needed a very sharp and precise cut. It cut like butter. Sorry, none of my Northwoods, Emerson, Benchmades, or other lower class knives have ever done that for me. I love the fact that there is zero, zilch, none, nada...wiggle when you open the blade. Plus, itís quite slim, yet very tough looking and gentlemen carry to this thing, yet doesnít seem like it would back off in a ďfightĒ type of tool. There is a bank-vault feel to this thing. Maybe Iím very impressed, because itís my first more expensive knife, donít know...but I love it! Iíd do it again, as far as Iím concerned.
Very nice blade.

Although I internally debated spending so much on a single knife for some time, after repeatedly reminding myself of my firm belief in "you get what you pay for," I finally pulled the trigger on a large Inkosi and am very happy I did so. While similar components can be found on less expensive blades, the quality with which CRK puts them all together is unmatched in any other production knife I have seen. Perfect lock up and blade centering, silky smooth action, and great feel in the hand combine with the S35vn steel for great performance in just about any everyday (and some not so everyday) cutting tasks. In short, I love the knife and am very glad I finally got one.
