We have always loved the CRK Sebenza - everyone knows it is an amazing knife. We wanted something new for our collectors and friends at KnifeArt.com In early 2010, we developed the new Sebenza Insingo blade shape.
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, "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."
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".
