I've been on fence for a long time. Shelling out that much dough for a pocket knife does seem crazy. I finally caved in and got a small Inkosi Insingo w. black Micarta inlay as an EDC. It's my first CR folder (I have a CR kitchen knife as well) and this is a piece of craftsmanship. It is everything you read on the web. It just oozes quality. Save the money you are about to spend on cheaper knives, you won't be happy until you have a CR. And then you'll ask yourself, why didn't I go there directly? I have a couple of cheaper knives, all nice and good. Once you've handled, used, broken in and taken apart a CR, the others simply can't hold a candle against this one.
