    Received this Tuesday and in the pocket it went and has stayed there since. I’m really liking the insingo blade.

    Nice, I had no idea that was possible. That’s something to think about. Thanks.

    I also was lucky enough to snag a large from the show. It's also my first Inkosi. Slightly different feeling than a 21 in hand and when opening but still an equally impressive knife. This will definitely be in my carry rotation.

    UseitorLoseit,

    One nice looking knife. You must be one of the 1st to score a damascus blade on a Inkosi as I jut look and you can only order Plain blade. What do the call that pattern?

    Yes I think there were a limited number made for Bladeshow this year. The Damasteel pattern is called Björkmans Twist. I've heard talk about possible regular production Damasteel Inkosi versions in the future but not from an official source.

    I put on an email to CRK asking for more information on the steel itself. When I hear back I'll see if they will tell us how many there were.

    Used this a lot this weekend repairing a plug, motor and outlet. It was a pleasure to use and created more memories of my wife and I using this knife and doing things together. That, to me, is priceless.[​IMG]

    It's all good. I had an itch to scratch and I'm happy I did.

    The Inkosi is an amazing knife , but was not clicking for me 100%. Another CRK is always waiting around the corner.

    Recently replaced my 25 for EDC. But I do rotate it with many others to avoid jealousy amongst the pack.

    I absolutely love my Inkosis. I only wish I could get one with wood or carbon fiber inlays, polished Titanium scale faces and a Tanto blade. I have the Sebenza 21 BladeHQ dealer exclusive with the Tanto blade and carbon fiber inlays, but I like the robust feel and improved pocket clip design of the Inkosis better.
