Chris Reeve Small Inkosi Tanto S45VN - Natural Canvas Micarta Inlay

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 Insingo 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 the Tanto blade shape. What’s more, this Small Inkosi comes with solid titanium handles for enhanced strength, durability, and wear resistance, along with natural canvas micarta inlays for added grip and visual interest.

Compact, lightweight, and incredibly robust, the Chris Reeve Knives Small Inkosi Tanto marries unparalleled cutting ability with 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.
