I grabbed a couple, thanks. If they are as good as the kwaiken version I’ll be more than pleased.

Does this knife run on washers?
Thanks

I have not disassembled mine to see. I can tell you it opens as smooth as glass & there is no blade play.
Fit n’ finish is about as close to perfect as possible.
Great edge holding. I have been trying to dull the one I have by cutting old miscellaneous cardboard boxes I had/have. No luck yet, it still shaves hair off my arm. I have cut +well over+150 yards of cardboard at this point. The 150 yards is a conservative estimate too.

At $9.99 it’s a nobrainer. Quite possibly the ‘deal of the century’ as far as I am concerned! Big Smile . Thumbs Up . Wink

@ Muto .. Before & after?? Yep, I’ll do that as soon as my next one arrives. I’ll get the “before” & then bend it to show the after.

It is just bending the tip of fhe clip up a bit so it slides easier onto the edge of the pocket.

And then two very slight bends up at the top, just down from where it attaches to the knife; to give it more room to accommodate a Blue Jean pocket: which is usuall thicker material than dress pants.

It could even be the clip on the only one I have was misformed all along I guess. I just didn’t/don’t have a second knife to compare it to at this time.

I was concerned the clip might break while bending, but the first one did not. Thumbs Up

I’m not sure about the first one.

But the second one was discussed HERE and REVIEWED HERE.

Warriors & Wonders https://www.warriorsandwonders.com/ In Vancouver. I know thats not in the GTA, but there mail order is also superb. I’ve bought a lot of knives from them over the years, this store, there old store & mail order. They have a huge inventory & reasonable prices. Nice thing about buying from them is you don’t have to worry about CBSA/Customs confiscating your goods.

SR Knives is very good. They also sell on ebay as caledon2. If you go in the store, mention the ebay price and you will get it as it is generally a little bit cheaper.

Thanks. Last time I bought a 9” was about over a decade ago. The knife shows usability wear but intact as far as handle and blade functionality. It comes into it’s own on a carcass.

Careful buying and you get what you pay for.

I want to add a 6-7 inch bug out knife. Under 100 bucks.

Oh crap…..they are still around! I thought they were gone. That’s were I bought my knife.

My bad. It’s not a road that I go through and I went Google hoping for knife stores. It missed them and I thought they were gone.

Thanks.

Not exactly budget but, a nice knife on Massdrop. Brad Zinker Dogtooth, multiple handle materials available. Lefty version too. $119 and up.

I think I got the affiliate type link removed from the address.

If anyone is curious or on the fence on these, here’s a quick demo I made showing the action on the frame lock version (also still available).

I love the smooooooth action. I “think” that up here we are limited to 4 inches on locking blades. Besides, I rather have a full body whrn getting up into 6-7 inches.

No. 1 is a Kershaw Oso Sweet.
Maybe a clone but more likely OEM, meaning a midnight run from the company that made them for Hershaw just producing some more without permission
