    Well, it's been over a year since I wrote that post, and I've finally broke down and ordered a plain small 21 insingo. I was lucky enough to find one brand new for $350 (I gather that CRK had a price increase since the small 21's are now $375). It would appear that the dealer forgot to apply the price increase to the knife.

    Not to say that I've been actively looking all this time, but the small 21 insingo seems to be quite hard to find in Canada, new or used.

    Can't wait to finally put my hands on what I believe is the ultimate EDC knife, for me anyways! Will report back when it's in hand!

    I prefer the insingo (small 21s below) in use and looks. The blade closed IMO, makes the small 21 look more complete...a bit wider. I also believe it makes the knife easier to handle and deploy having a little extra blade sticking out past the pocket clip.

    Really can't remember if I posted these in here or not. One is my user and one is my backup. Was able to get the small idaho made logo on these starbenzas. The only thing that will ever knock these out is a damascus insingo....if released.

    I'll update with some pics tomorrow. Feels good to have an Insingo in the pocket again. :)

    I just recently decided to pick up a Large CF Inkosi Insingo.....Love this Insingo Blade shape.
    Not sure why I waited so long!

    Since I never really looked for the Insingo Blades I never really noticed till now...
    So why is it that the large Sebenza 21 Insingo hardly EVER gets any CGG love!
    I can’t seem to even find one unless someone posts a pic of one already owned.

    We need to go VFR direct to CRK on this issue :D

    Really missing my small insingo. Reluctantly had to part with it last year and lately I have really been wanting another.

    Treat yoself!

    I'm really happy with the large in my pocket. The small is a bit small for me.

    Carried just about everyday for a couple of years but the new REK thumbstud made it pretty much perfect.

    Something about a large 21 Insingo that just grabs my attention. I've sold off my small 21 Insingo and my large Inkosi Insingo but this one is staying with me for the long haul.
