The Chris Reeve Large Sebenza Insingo with Micarta Inlays is a robust folding knife with extra grip inlays of blasted canvas micarta. The inlays are raised above the handle for added thickness and gripping surface. Additionally, this Large Sebenza 21 has an insingo blade for versatile cutting tasks.
In early 2010, we developed the new Sebenza Insingo blade shape in collaboration with Chris Reeve Knives. According to Rodney Connelley, "The Insingo is an excellent cutting tool, I wanted to design a blade that would enhance precision slicing and cutting. At the same time, the knife is built for heavy use, with the precision and ruggedness you expect from a Sebenza."
Larry Connelley mentioned, "The Sebenza Insingo creates a functionally new knife from Chris Reeve Knives and KnifeArt.com. The Sebenza has been one of
the most successful designs in modern knife history. It is exciting to see the knife with a new blade shape."
The Large Sebenza 21 Insingo blade matches up nicely with the non-anodized thumb studs and fittings. The knife comes with a black cord lanyard.
Chris Reeve commented, "Sebenza means 'work' in Zulu –
these knives are intended to do just that. We found the Zulu word 'Insingo' which
means 'razor', an inference to the similarity of the blade shape to that of a straight-edge
razor. What is essentially a new model will be known as the "Sebenza Insingo. Sebenzas
are, in some respects, a work in progress. Our knives are fitted to the tightest
tolerances in the industry and the Sebenza has set the standard against which other
knives are compared." The sebenza insingo is pronounced "in-sing-go".
