Brand new item direct from Chris Reeve Knives.
The Blade: Beloved sheepsfoot-styled Insingo stonewashed 2.75" S45VN blade is stronger and introduces CRK's Large Hollow Grind technology with dual titanium thumb lugs standard.The new grind is half way between a flat grind and their standard hollow grind gaining strength from the flat and proven sharpening longevity of the hollow.
It also implements a strengthened pivot with a larger stop pin and over sized twin phosphor bronze washers with larger grease pockets (less surface area friction). The washer diameter is wider than the blade ensuring zero sideways play.
The Handle: A full titanium frame has ergonomic finger grooves and Black Canvas Micarta inlays for a pleasurable gripping experience. Other improvements (ceramic ball end lock) provide a lifetime of consistent lockup and changes to the pocket clip eliminating pressure on the lock bar make it the Chief of pocket knives. The Inkosi is the representation of what customers have come to expect from Chris Reeve Knives.
Includes a microfiber cloth, small tube fluorinated grease, LocTite, Allen keys and information packet.
CPM-S45VN: An evolution in Crucible's S30-series, S45VN shows improved edge retention and corrosion resistance relative to S35VN and offers an upgrade to Elmax with better hardness, corrosion resistance, toughness, and sharpness with similar edge retention.
