Do you see the new fixed knives from Hx outdoors?. I wonder why their new knives are using 440 steel instead of their usual 440C…

I find their knives ugly Sick (except 2 or 3 models)

I see GB has listed a $tr0ngärm clone
https://www.gearbest.com/fixed-blades-knives/pp_009427737906.html

440C they say Crown Could be anything from 3Cr13 to 9Cr18…

Now they have made some new models, all with tactic style, a pair are not bad. But with 440 and not 440C.

That knife who knows… i do not buy knives without a brand.

Just searching around on Amazon. Found a Kershaw Chill on sale for $16.95. Not sure if it’s a good deal or not but, it looks like a decent little flipper.

That's the lowest price I could find brand new.

If I didn't only go for knives with metal handles, I'd get a Kershaw Chill.  :THUMBS-UP:

For that price you must try it!

In my opinion it’s one of the best flippers with standard washers, I only wish they’d make a batch with better steel.

Does anyone know where you can sell your clones, most forums don’t allow the sale of them.
(I apologize if this question has already been addressed somewhere in this thread but it was a little long for me to spend the time searching.)

I assume that would be on the ‘Want to Sell’ forum? I thought that was for lights only.

Yeah, that goes pretty much in line with what I always though, brands like CH, TwoSun are legit, well known cloners that price their knives accordingly like Green Thorn (and probably Dicoria, Bear Claw, Lovocco, etc…) are legit, cheap $20/$30 clones claiming D2, S35VN, etc.. are BS (I still buy them, but not for the steel claimed). It’s common sense if you ask me, but now there is proof.

Usually on the $20 clones with D2 the seller says that in reality its 9Cr18MoV. But I’m surprised that even the heat treatment is perfect on many cheap knifes.
The Ganzo new D2 steel is also real with a amazing 62 rockwell hardness and its very cheap.

I’m sorry guys for the (stupid) question but…are you able to buy (again) knives from Gearbest ???
If I click the link or search knives on GB, it tell me “suspended”.
Have GB resolved his problems with knives? I remember it was some mess with the selling of knives…
Thank you!

The link works for me and i received my last GB knife order (a Land 9104) yesterday.

 

Btw  anotherbot  i do not understand why you say your link is liner lock as it is written "back lock" in the description and the pictures don't show the liner lock

I have found the answer by myself…Some others italian guys from a Facebook ‘s group about Ganzo knives explain me there is a customs dispute between Gearbest and the italian custom….So, at this moment, no one from Italy (so not only me) can buy any kind of knives from GB!
Now we can buy only from DHGate (I do not like it) Aliexpress or Fasttech. But no one can beat GB prices/deals!! Facepalm
