Chris Reeve Knives is a leading American-based manufacturer of folding and fixed-blade knives designed for everyday work. Known for sleek, innovative design, Chris Reeve Knives has made massive contributions to the knife world, including the industry standard Reeve Integral Lock™ (known to many as the "frame-lock").
Working closely with Crucible Industries, Chris Reeve Knives has also played an essential role in developing CPM S30V, S35VN, and S45VN, powdered blade steels formulated particularly for edge-retention, toughness and corrosion resistance.
After over 30 years in business, the once "out-of-the-garage" company has grown into a full production facility known worldwide for quality, excellence, and innovation.
The Inkosi is Chris Reeve most technologically advanced model. It pushes the characteristics of the Integral Lock®, blade strength, pivot and lock tolerances as well as overall ergonomics.
A 97 RC ceramic ball runs 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.
Blending the benefits of a flat grind and hollow grind, the blade’s 20” hollow grind provides a thicker stock and more overall strength.
