About this model: The Inkosi (Zulu word for 'chief') is the product of tried and proven design elements that have been continuously refined for over 30 years . With the Inkosi Chris Reeve Knives continues the evolution of the Integral Lock folder. Never content to rest on past success, Chris Reeve Knives has raised the bar again. Some of the highlights include:
Stability to the locking mechanism
Larger, more stout pivot coupling
Oversized phosphor bronze washers are the same size -front and back, locate off the stop pin, and have extra-large grease pockets
Upgraded, beefier, stop pin
Standard double thumb lugs
Pocket clip is mounted so that it rests on the spine rather than the lock bar, eliminating the possibility of pressure on the lock bar
Ceramic ball lock bar interface. This does not mean just a ceramic detent, but rather a ceramic ball that actually acts as the interface between the lock bar and the blade tang.
Note: Feature highlight pictures of pivot, washers and stop pin are from a Small Inkosi.
