    Hey, Inkosi Insingo owners, did you guys end up keeping your inkosi insingos or did you go back to the Sebenza insingo? And why?

    Still carry both. Did a recent refurbishment on my 21 so it still looks like new, so the Inkosi gets more pocket time now.

    The Inkosi I have with the natural micarta though is more eye catching as the micarta gets so dark it looks like wood.

    will have to wait and see what happens in the long run.

    Went a step farther and sold off all my sebenza. I just think the Inkosi is that much better.
    I don't keep knives I don't carry and use, so once the Inkosi's arrived (3 now), I didn't see any point in keeping the sebenza if I wasn't going to use the, last one went out yesterday.

    I kept both. I have considered selling the Inkosi Insingo simply because I prefer thinner blade stock and the fact I have a few favorite smalls. In the end though I can never bring myself to sell the Inkosingo.

    It's actually in my pocket now.

    Edit: After this post yesterday I started obsessing about my "collection" and decided I have so many awesome smalls and a Mnandi that I decided I'd likely let my Inkosingo go. That's what reading the Interwebs will do to you - make you make decisions on topics you weren't even thinking about. :D

    So what are your favorite "smalls"?

    Sorry for the horrible picture but it's early and I'm trying to get the kids ready for school, lunches made, breakfast, etc.

    What made you prefer the small over the inkosi?

    Thinner blade stock. More fingers on the grip. Easier for me to open one handed based on hand/grip position.
