    My Insingo swedge is already *almost* too sharp to be considered a swedge and not a secondary edge. Sharpening it further, IMO, would be pointless as it already serves it's purpose well.

    I sharpened the swedge on my Umnumzaan years ago before I gave it away. It's not hard to do with some soft backed wet/dry and a stropping action. I'm not sure most would want to try and flat grind it.

    You first have to upload the photo to a photo hosting site like photobucket or imgur. Once uploaded, you copy the image link and paste it using the IMG button on the expanded respond screen (open that by hitting the plus button on the bottom left)

    Edit: For some reason the picture I just tried isn't showing up for me now lol

    After owning it for a while now, I'm loving my lrg Insingo. I bought the lefty version but other than the novelty of finally having a lefty specific knife, it doesn't really make a difference to me having it left handed. The knife is great, finish is excellent, blade shape is spectacular. The only issue for me is that my winter jacket has a draw string that always seems to catch the clip, (only on this knife as it sticks out a bit more than any other I own) and pulls it completely out of my pocket! Luckily the only time it fell off the drawstring too I noticed right away. So I can only carry the knife when it's not -30c and I can wear a different jacket. lol! The clip works great when I don't need the heavy jacket as it's super easy to slide in jeans pockets and has good retention when my stupid jacket isn't trying to steal my knife.

    Welcome! I totally dig the small insingo. Although I opted for the knife art carbon fiber version 😃

    How is the lanyard pin staying in without a lanyard attached:confused:
    I've seen this a few times and can't figure it out!

    I had a few sent to me for work and the guys cut and burn a small piece of lanyard cord in the hole. Both ends burnt and that keeps it in place.

    Since this is the small sebenza the lanyard pin will stay in, but it does rattle sometimes. on the large it will slide all the way out, hence the paracord trick.

    So that explains it all!
    I only have a large, never had a small. Can't believe I didn't think of melted paracord.

    I'm getting another small sebenza. I have 1 insingo and absolutely love the blade shape. I currently have a Mnandi and another fancy small sebenza that doesn't get any pocket time. My question is this... Should I just stick with another insingo? Or do you guys think in the future I'll miss out not having a drop point in my collection? I just really love the insingo but I know the DP serves a purpose as well! What to do?

    I say have one of each! I currently only have a small insingo, but am waiting for a small starbenza to come up on the exchange. Of course if I had to go with one it would be an insingo, based on the reason that my primary use is EDC.

    I've, on the other hand, never had a drop point... So I'm a bit bias 😜

    Yeah I'm biased too. I like the drop point on my Damascus mammoth sebenza but for edc I feel that the insingo is more geared towards my uses. It's so functional and comfortable in use.

    I recently bought my first CRK ... a small Insingo ... as my new EDC. It fits my needs and style perfectly. That begin said I like a little variety so I just bought a 25 Silver Edition with the drop point. Gotta spread the love.
