    Nice! I think you'll like it. I've had my Wilson Starbenza 25 for a couple years & they're a lot alike. The starburst pattern looks good & it even pairs well with my Wilson CQB.

    I've been waiting patiently for a Wilson/Inkozi Insingo, but it looked like that wasn't going to happen soon enough, so I got a plain one a few months ago. It seems like it doesn't matter what "new favorite" knife I buy, the CRKs eventually end up back in my pocket.

    Thanks!!
    Yup that's a sweet combo you've got there no doubt :thumbsup:
    I like the Insingo a lot also but I really like the looks of the drop point and I think it flows nicely with the WC Starburst pattern to so for me it was a win win either way :D

    Nice, the WC logo on the pocket clip really stands out. The logo looks way better than mine. :)

    Thanks !!
    I did notice how clear the WC logo was and just assumed that's how they were . I'm really liking this one its right up there with favorites if not at the top.
    The fit and finish is really nice a long with the action . The same goes for my small insingo inkosi . CRK has really impressed me even more then I was years ago and that says a lot.

    I gotta say, the WC logo on the pocket clip is the one thing that turns me off about the Starbenza models. It looks terribly out of place. And it looks oddly Nazi-like.

    The WC logo is barely legible/visable on my Starbenza...

    I personally like it and prefer it. Looks classy to me and a nice touch and not really seeing the nazi-like image you speak of .
    But it's all a matter of taste and perception I guess.

    I'm sure it wasn't on purpose, just made the eagle in the shape of a "W" and that's what came up.
    It works, but I do see a bit of what you're implying.

    Love that knife. So much so I bought one. Like it far better than inlayed ones.

    Same here as I was concerned how comfortable/traction the star pattern had and ended up falling in love with it when it fell into my hand !!!
    Now I want another so I can have one as a safe queen lol.
