The packaging was simple but very nice. It was a green CRKT small box that had the brand written in white. Sturdy cardboard and very satisfying to open.

First Chris Reeve Knife
I found the handle shape and clip placement of the Inkosi to not be very comfortable. The new clip placement on the Sebenza 31 also isn’t ideal but the more rectangular handle shape makes it a little more comfortable. Honestly, even though the Inkosi has thicker blade stock I never felt the Sebenza ...
