    My small 21 Micarta Insingo, is one of my very favorite knives. I hope to be buying a large 21 Micarta Insingo soon.

    @kidcongo I'm sad this thread has lost its photos. I picked up a large Insingo and came back to find this. :(

    Any chance you'd be able to update this thread? Your photos detailing this and other Sebenza details were absolutely superb.

    I've had a large Insingo for a few years. I've never been able to carry it for a day once in a while.
    I read your thread and the great comments from you Cody The comments from everyone else were great too.
    I've been carrying mine for almost two weeks and I don't see a reason to stop any time soon.
    I love the blade shape on this knife! It's the best slicer CRK makes.

    For most of us the drop point is much more functional for everyday applications and easier to sharpen as well

    @ tank sniper...have you ever used an Insingo ? Your comments about the drop are exaggerated and one sided.

    yes I have used the insingo. I don't care for it as you can tell. The drop point does everything I need it to. I simply see more disadvantages with the insingo than advantages especially if you are a big game hunter. Obviously the insingo has a big following but maybe the majority of these are "gentleman users" as it were.

    Here is a link that I think will be okay to post here since they advertise here or did at one time.

    Disadvantages based on your use for sure. Different blades for different functions. Glad CRK makes different bladed types. I’ll use my insingo blade to gentlemanly cut things.
