Southern Grind Bad Monkey
That’s without a doubt my favorite CRK !!
Looking good Brother !
One of my workhorses.
Well, it's not like I forced you into a bad choice, @Dcdavis , given what a great work knife the Inkosingo is. For me, the slight curve of the blade will actually function much like a straight blade for paring in carpentry tasks with the added advantage of a slight forward bite while still affording the usefulness of a blade with belly. There's also more than enough point for drag cutting along a line while the quick drop of the top edge with its generously tapered swedge is still sufficient for piercing.
There aren't a lot of modern folders with similar blade shapes, especially with the excellent cutting geometry of a CRK. I was just able to pick up a Hinderer Skinny Sheepsfoot on the Exchange yesterday and will be really interested to see how it compares. I like my RHKs a lot, but they're a different animal than CRKs for sure and not in the same ballpark as cutters, although the Skinny Slicer I acquired a couple months back is much more than a hard-use knife in that regard.
Back on topic, I'll go with another Insingo today, heading over to my buddy's house this afternoon to measure for LCC apron/window pan flashing for the back dormer as part of his re-roofing/re-modeling project.
BTW, D, it's cool to see your knife on a well-used Klein bag. I've got a bunch of those in service for both work and knife stuff. They're really useful, versatile, and durable.
Had a little guy admiring the red linen micarta.
Leaves are changing quickly in my area.
Sebenza is are great folder, SAK is are all what I need in my urban environment, but there is always some pocket space for craziness of Spyderco
I’ve had the same curiosity about this pair as well ChazzyP. Will be interested to hear your impressions here.
In on page 2020! I missed 2000.
This has been a year of getting way outside my wheelhouse. A brief list of my buying filter violations: no autos,
no bearings, no flippers, no Chinese made (that was unintentional). Yep, I’ve broken all those self-imposed rules this year!
Now my whole fixed blade philosophy has been turned on its head with a Ban Tang kick of late. I typically think of fixed blades vs folders as larger, beefier, more capable. Ban has me going smaller, lighter, deadly and still very capable. I guess it all fits with my 2020 experience.
This little fruit knife is the first blade to challenge one of my all time favorites, the Evio Shiv, for left front pocket priority. I’m just really taken with these little blades.
^wickedly gorgeous!! Ban is a maestro of metals, and that little fruit knife is more proof. Congrats @mb>! I need one of those
Do you really want to be in on pg 2020? Lol.
So far this page is multiple times better than this year. Beauties of blades folks!
ETA:Jinxed myself...now I’m on pg 2020 too! Doh!
I'm off for the next week! Oh...wait, I'm not done moving yet
