I think that pretty much everyone here will agree that the Sanrenmu Land 910 +, 9103 and 9104 are the best budget knives you can buy in this price range,
I personally prefer the 9103 and 9104 as they are slimmer due to being frame locks but the 910+ has G10 handles and will be grippier.
They run on ball bearings and 12C27 steel is much better than the 8CR13MOV found on the 7010.

Gearbest has currently flash sales on those
9103 right now for $15

Those knives are a bargain at these prices.

Thanks bdpf79, now I’ll spend few bucks more and buy both 9104 and 910+ Facepalm I’m cutting things quite often due to my job requirements, so more than 1 knife will be good investment

It’s always a pleasure to get other people to spend their money Big Smile
You won’t regret it, those are great knives worth 3 times their price (I have all 3).
Let us know what you think of them once you get them.

The 910 range are superb value for money. Just really nice production tolerances, finishing (rounded blade spine etc). Whether you prefer framelock or linerlock will come down to personal preference. I prefer the framelock (9103/9104), it’s heavier but thinner and has a very solid feel.

Harnds Talisman is my favourite budget knife right now but it costs a few bucks more. Sometimes it goes under $20

Tracking shows it passed Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus and now Poland. LOL

I dont know what I had chosen but it now says: “Shipping method: Sweden surface mail”. That explains it… Facepalm
So it might be indeed going by train Big Smile

Weird but funny LOL .

I am located in CONUS. How is everyone paying for your orders on dhgate and aliexpress. I want to use PayPal, but its not an option. I have only had one order go through using privacy.com with a burner card. I have 8 orders that I can’t complete until I find a safer option to pay.

Got these 2 Microtech clones from DHGate, really pleased with them.
Minimal blade play in both directions and great fire action with 100% lock.
I wish I could find a third right in between the dimensions (the UTX70 clone is great to play with but too small for anything serious, and the Ultratech clone is a bit big to be EDCed…)
I found an UTX85 clone but they made it bigger (handle) than th original so it’s nearly as big as my Ultratech clone…

Cute is the right word, I can’t stop fidgetting with it !
I think I was lucky to find it, it’s no longer available on DHGate Shocked

i’m pretty shure this is orange, not yellow or green LOL

a green G704 why not, but also already have one in black (since a long time, it’s a good one)

anyone for F111 sold with different sizes ?

I’m pretty sure you quoted the wrong post Big Smile
Not sure about the F111 but I would think that they are all the same size and the 1cm difference is just error of measurement by the seller.
You could always contact the sellers to confirm.

I got my first budget folder the other day. 910+ to the right. So far very pleased, and ordered a 9103 which I dearly hope will show up before the new mail regulations comes in effect…

Since a lot of my Chinese knives come thru Sweden, I’m curious of what are the new regulations you’re talking about.
