    a tanto Umnumzaan is missing on the picture ;)

    The Inkosi is a gray design
    I especially like the small version which is better for my tasks than the small 21
    For larger version I prefer the more neutral grip and”one roll disassembly” of the 21
    I am really anticipating the31!!!!

    forme the large Inkosi is more in line with the umnumzaan, it is a more a workhorse user than the 21 - which is already an outstanding user

    i have a CF large Inkosi and for me it doesn’t fit with my feeling of this design and I will replace it with a natural micarta version. I think it will be more in line with this design - at least for me

    The pivot screw on the Inkosi is jacked up! I got this, brand new from a reputable dealer, and discovered the defect during my inspection. The rest of the knife if good to go. I'm undecided if I should return it to exchange for another one, or try to get a new pivot screw. Any suggestions?

    Me personally I would just contact Crk and I would assume they’d send you a new pivot with no problems. They’ve sent me one before. Usually very easy people to deal with

    Id ask for a new screw. They will hook you up. Assuming you can remove it.

    Thanks for the input guys. I'm going to contact CRK and try to get a new pivot screw. In the meantime, I've been really liking the Inkosi and it is a welcome addition to my small CRK collection :)

    Congrats! That’s a really good looking Inkosi, and I’m not usually a big fan of CF. These turned out very nice!

    Hi- long time lurker here. Ordered my first CRK, a large Inkosi. Burned up about three evenings comparing photos of the different flavors and boiled it down to the plain and the Wilson Combat (WC) version. I know, just a cosmetic difference and either should be great. Photos on this forum greatly helped in the decision process. Finally decided on the WC and hope I made the right choice. Now the long wait since they won't be available until the end of November.

    Anyway I'm excited to be joining the CRK club and looking forward to contributing to this thread.

    Cheers!

    Thank you much! I'm afraid you're going to be correct. Can't stop looking at the Umnumzaan and Sebenza:)
