The 3 Amigos ( Pocket Knives ) I got 3 ....







I ordered 3 knives from fasttech.com , oh man they have a lot of knives I have to tell you … (Fasttech Knives )
Anyhow , I ordered 3 that I thought might be unique .
I just got them like 2 hours ago ..

Initial impressions = All are tight , no blade play .. And they are all shaving sharp . I have a Bee L01 that has been my daily user , and I have grown disappointed with it ( Wont hold an edge – Takes a edge – just wont hold it ) So time to put the Bee on the shelf to gather dust .

SRM 4108 sux ( I hope not ) 12cm Open , Tension lock , 7.25cm closed . = Very small and light , sharp , tight – Nothing to complain about yet !

SRM 7092 Lux , 16.5cm Open , Liner lock , 9.5cm closed = Small and light , tight , blade open easily – Nothing to complain about yet !

Y-Start Jin01 , 22cm Open , Liner lock , 12.5cm closed = Medium / large , has some heft , relatively hard to open ( you will get a sore thumb playing with it ) , D2 (?) – Nothing to complain about yet ? Does a sore thumb count ?

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Thank you …
Was looking for some new blood ( so to speak ) and chose 3 different sizes ( steels ) etc

For my tastes, i get the jin01, bigger and i love the design and blade shape (not only for being full flat but the design of the blade).

If the Y-Start has good steel ( yay ) ..
I still have (?) one or two more knives in the mail —— Maybe 3 ..

Looking forward to doing a review on the Dirty Dozen ( I think its going to be about 12 knives )

Beautiful knives you have there.
For some reasons I didn’t manage to get Jin01 but Jin02, maybe too many knives to buy. Cash

That SRM 4059 would be awesome in full size (7 – 8” / 180 – 200 mm open length).

Always like me that tiny and rounded 4059. For the price a little gem.

But why chinese brands make so little back locks?. It is strong lock system if you make it well.

Haha I never noticed that the srm 4108 sux.
I have the jin02 and the thumbstud is a real sore. From the look of it the jin01 has as exactly the same thumbstud.

I also like backlock knives a lot. I have 1 ganzo f759, like it so much that 6 more are on the way. The g713 (not sure the number is correct) was also my favorite, the protruding steel liners from the handle make it such a pain to hold, but the snap of the backlock is so satisfying.

There are only a few back locks in the universe of chinese knives. The huge enkan ew039 is one of them, ganzo has only a pair (and it has a LOT of models), sanrenmu has very few too and so.
