    I was lucky enough to score a Black Micarta Inko-Singo on the exchange recently. Truly awesome blade - I love everything about it. My 25 is feeling neglected now. :(

    They're showing up, but they're selling out pretty fast. You're going to have the best luck getting your hands on one if you check the websites on a daily basis... that's what I did and I was able to get one...

    Can I get an opinion on the inkosi lockbar? I have a 21 and the lock bar where you put your thumb to release the bar and unlock is champhered but I don’t see that on the inkosi so much. Does that mean the inkosi tends to hurt the thumb more? Asking because don’t like sharp lock bars at all.

    Are you talking about here? That part of the lockbar is actually champhered. Releasing the lockbar is actually a touch easier on the inkosi. MVIMG_20171027_220235~01.jpg

    That's a bit different than mine. My new Inkozi has slightly more chamfer at the thumb release than the rest of the lock bar, but not that much.

    Interesting. This small insingo inkosi has a September 2017 birthday with C-17 scales. Is yours a small?

    Yeah I would have thought they were proportioned. Looking at larges it seems like the width of the chamfer is around the same on both knives but the large's lockbar being bigger it's smaller in relation to the rest of the knife. In any event I doubt it would hurt anyone's fingers to release the lockbar and if it did a callous would development on your thumb that would solve that in a few days.

    I had "frame lock thumb" long before I bought my first Sebenza, so I never noticed.:)

    I'm looking at the specs on the small inkosi and wow it looks small !
    How do you guys think or those that have one feel ego's are or would be for a medium size hand ?

    It's smaller than a small Seb. 21 by comparison.

    Yes and that what concerns me as far as how it feels in a medium size hand .
    2 3/4 inch blade is pretty small with a over all length of 6.5 .

    I have medium hands and it's perfect me but it's more of a 3.5 finger grip with the lanyard providing a little more stability. If you're concerned with the specs on paper it's best to try it out in person or buy one cheap used in case you need to resell it.

    I carry a lot of traditional knives and mnandis that are the same size or smaller so it doesn't bother me.

    Thanks it sounds like it might work for me . I don't mind having a 3 finger grip on a traditional but wasn't sure on a bigger knife .
