There is nothing like the forest after sitting behind a desk all day. I'm thankful there are so many near me.
Mail call brought a new-to-me CRK that checks a lot of the boxes I've been meaning to fill in the Chris Reeve Wing of my accumulation. I've been wanting another Insingo for some time as well as another Inkosi. I've also not had a Plain Jane for awhile--missing that handle style since trading away my PJ 25 as part of a deal for a Shiro. The Inkosi being the logical successor to the 25, this one fills that void nicely and gives me all three attributes together in one knife without duplicating that combination in any of my other several.
And when is a "used" knife better than a new or BNIB one? When the seller says it's not LNIB as it was lightly carried, but you have to look real hard for the faint snail trails. When the knife's been sharpened but it has an outstanding @halden.doerge mirror-polished edge on it. When it's been used but it's not even broken in and I can tune it up just the way I want it. Many thanks to @DNAIrradiator for the good deal and passing along this sweet knife.
I started out today with my RDD in pocket and finished up with my new PJ Inkosingo on me. (Apologies to @Dcdavis for co-opting his term .)
I saw you nabbed that one! Good! Glad it went to a good home. Inkosi insingos may take the best edges out of all the CRK models, I think.
Very nice!! Congrats. Love me a wharnie!
Nice shot...I always loved this knife...never pulled the trigger tho.
Very cool shot.
So glad to see you are using it!!! So so awesome.
Sweet edge, brother. Is that a bit of a re-profile?
Some seriously awesome blades being toted today by you all! Lots and lots!
Got home from work and had to pocket this beauty. Chips, @WValtakis work is just amazing. Blows me away.
Yes, just a bit. I believe around 18 or 19 degrees per side if memory serves. Those Inkosi Insingos are so thin behind the edge that very little steel needs to be removed to get that slightly slimmer, super slicey geometry.
That I am, it’s an awesome knife, made possible by an awesome group of gentlemen, one of the most special knives I’ve had the privilege of using.
@WValtakis is a craftsman of the highest caliber. His work is stellar.
Dang...you're gonna make me blush Really, I couldn't think of a more deserving guy that we ALL could have done this for...enjoy/use the heck out of it
SAK 91mm Cub Scout Tinker and Ti Bugout today
No apologies needed. We welcome you aboard Inkosi insingo is one of my favorites. The insingo blade shape is just so useful in my day to day, and the Inkosi is just a pure workhorse. Congrats
My Baby got some bling today
