Chris Reeve Large Inkosi Insingo, Black Canvas Micarta Inlay (LIN-1028)
The Inkosi is a new family of folding knives that will claim the position of Chief alongside the iconic Sebenza. The Inkosi Features sandblasted handles, a tumbled finish drop point blade, titanium hardware, and extterior accents in the Reeve signature anodized blue. Built with handcrafted care at a production level the Inkosi continues to push the characteristics of the Intergal Lock, blade strength pivot and lock tolerances as well as as over all ergonomics.
- At 97RC, the strength of the ceramic ballend lock provides a lifetime consistent lock up.
- Mounted Pocket Clip rests on the back face, eliminating the possibility of pressure on the lockbar and provides a more ergonomic grip.
- Twin oversized Phosphor-Bronze washers.
A carefully developed hollow grind, strengthened pivot and sturdy lock up were the starting points for our new family of Inkosi folding knives. 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 the 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 our standard hollow grind.
