    First of all I'd like to say thank you to everyone on this forum! I have loved knives my whole life, but have lived in the $40 or less range my whole life. I have recently started looking into what makes good steel and what the names of all these different materials are. I am huge into researching products. Once I decided that I needed a premium blade with top notch quality, I had to start researching knife brands. I had never heard of Chris Reeve Knives!!!! I first came across the Todd Begg Steelcraft Mini Bodega and thought that was the knife for me, but I continued my research.... Chris Reeve Knives came across the plate. The rest is really history. This forum was fantastic in answering all my questions and thoughts even as obscure as some are, such as how the inlay in the handles are attached to the knives.

    So to say the least, I've been moderately obsessed with getting my hands on a Small INKOSI INSINGO for my first CRK EDC... The lady one the phone at CRK told me this: They made a small batch for a knife show and sold all of them, apparently that's all that have been sold up to this point. She told me that they are sending out their first production run to all the distributors in September. So mark you calendars to get this amazing piece of art! She didn't give me any specifics on a date in September... I even said "okay so you'll be shipping them out in early September" and she said "we'll be shipping them out in September." So, early/mid/late September. Keep your eyes peeled!

    Yup! Ordered a small PJ Inkosi Insingo yesterday from them and got the info then. She said about a month and a half. Great news for sure. I hope I like it as much as my other CRK's...

    I put a plain small Inkosi Insingo on order from CRK also.... Just incase the distributors sell out before I can place my order, I'll already have the order from CRK in the works. ha. You gotta hedge your bets.

    I was lucky enough to snag a Small Inkosi Insingo Micarta at BLADE. I carried it most of the rest of the summer while a couple of my other CRKs were in for spa & engraving. It's a great little blade for sure.

    So for all you folks that have carried the Small Inkosi with the drop point blade, how do you like it with the Insingo blade? I've got a small Inkosi with the drop point blade, but really thinking about an Insingo bladed version. Thoughts?
