Chris Reeve Small Inkosi Insingo Left Handed Natural Micarta Inlays
The Small Inkosi Insingo blade, which means Chief in Zulu, is the latest advancement in knife making technology from Chris Reeve Knives. This model lives up to that name with several improvements over past models made during the last 30 years of Chris Reeve production. This version comes with an S35VN Insingo blade and Natural Canvas Micarta inlaid handles specifically engineered for a Left Handed User.
Brand new, direct from Chris Reeve Knives.
Blade: Beloved sheepsfoot-styled Insingo stonewashed 2.75" 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.
Handle: A full titanium frame has ergonomic finger grooves and 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 S35VN: was designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM S30V. The inclusion of Niobium allows for the formation of niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting niobium carbides for some of the vanadium carbides makes CPM S35VN about 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM S35VN’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
