Chris Reeve Small Inkosi Tanto - Black Canvas Micarta

Leading the pack

Just when you think it's impossible to improve upon perfection, the team at Chris Reeve Knives introduces the Inkosi. Appropriately, Inkosi is the Zulu word for Chief and this one-of-a-kind Small Inkosi Tanto is definitely bossing. 

The Small Inkosi is the most technologically advanced model in the CRK lineup and takes the core characteristics of the signature integral lock, blade strength, pivot, and lock tolerances as well as overall ergonomics to a whole new level.

Built for a lifetime of performance, it features a 97 RC ceramic ball running interface between the integral lock bar end and tang of the blade, preventing wear and ensuring accurate lock up for the lifetime of the knife.

On the cutting edge, this Small Inkosi features an upgraded S45VN with a tanto blade shape. Developed by Chris Reeve and Rodney Connelley, the tanto blade has a curving edge that is ideal for slicing but it also has a more wide angle at the tip which gives it more strength.

What’s more, this Small Inkosi comes with striking Black Canvas Micarta inlays expertly inlaid atop the stonewashed titanium handles. Exquisite in form and highly utilitarian in function, the Black Canvas Micarta inlays add a refined touch of class that sets it apart from the rest of the pack.

Compact, lightweight, and incredibly robust, the Chris Reeve Knives Small Inkosi Tanto marries unparalleled cutting ability with a flawless fit, form, and function. If you're looking for the one knife to rule them all, an heirloom-quality blade for the generations – it's hard to argue with the Chief.
