Which knives did you get? I’ve been thinking about getting something small for on my belt, but haven’t been sure what will and won’t get past customs.

Trying to work out what I like the look of (and learning more about what tech is behind them etc).

Cheers!

Hey.

I’m just a starter on these folding knives.
Had nothing but Puma for 50 yrs and more. Recently.
After reading a lot and taking note of reviews/opinions etc.
I tend to stick to Martiini for fixed (So far but that may change)
Puma are beautiful. but Blade materials and profiles are waaaay behind.

For my Keyring knife. I have a coupla SOG Micro2’s One on each kayring.
Yet to find a “Flat as” knife to take up less pocket space.
Just waiting for a …

Hmm Just lost the ferkin’ lot…………………………..

My Knives.

Puma. Fixed and fold. Old school.

Martiini fixed OOOOld.
Home made Saw Blade Skinners. OOOOOOOOolder.
But still skin a Buff/Cow/Roo. like you wouldn’t believe.

I Personally can’t see the point in spending zillions of $$$‘s on blades or Torches.
That’s just me though.

Good reviewed Quality Chinese blades have come on a lot recently.

Ganzo. Kershaw. Go Comma. San renmu. Y-Start.
ALL make good blades with 440c or D2.

I have SOG Micro2 on car Key ring. SRM 6040? Maybe on other keys
with clip off to thin it out.
Ganzo Firebird F753m Fits/Feels good.
Pocket knife.
Ganzo G733. BIG for me. Folder .
with beaut Spyderco blade in 440c
Probably keep as spare just cause of beautiful blade.

Y-Start -02. as my out bush on belt folder. alongside Martiini.
With Axe and Chain Saw in ute tray.

DON’T want to start a knife collection.
Just a few handy well fitting blades for whatever.
half a doz MAX….

I have 4 or 5 in mail.
Gonna give them away after thinking about it.
plus at least two of these here now.
Keyring x 2. Pocket. Belt. Fixed and maybe a spare or 2.
Maybe.

Sit and figure out WHAT, and WHY you want and why.
What blade shape/size. Handle. Scales. and $$$$‘s.

If collecting. Forget I spoke.
Just keep buying old camera cases and go for it.
You’ll get 50 or 60 per.
AND.
Have fun. ALL these hobbies are great. As long as missus allows the expenditure hey.

Regards
Macka

Oweban.

Regarding a carry.
Remember. 1 inch of blade in right place will bleed anybody out.
It’s NOT…. WHAT you carry.
It’s HOW TO USE, what you carry.
BIG Blades are just Psychological.
My little SOG Micro’s will drain out the biggest bloke at armpit. neck,
inside elbow. Wrist etc. and he won’t even feel it.
Same with my little SRM 6029 Or Maybe the coming
SRM 6040??.
with keyring in end hole to swing it on little pinkie. 1 1\2 in Blade is all you need specially with keyring on your
little finger.

Put ALL your iffy gear in luggage. You won’t get any type of blade through any scanner nowadays.
and keep ALL blades chef edged.

Heh, this isn’t for self defence or anything, basically an alternative to a leatherman on my belt. I found I use the blade in my work a lot more than the rest, so I’m thinking 2-3” tops, what I’ve been putting in my fob pocket lately is this:

https://www.kincrome.com.au/folding-utility-knife

But was thinking something a little more refined might be nice to go along with EDC torch. It won’t be going on a plane, by customs I was more meaning stuff being rejected as it arrives in the mail.

But yeah, I’ll check out those Chinese brands; something simple and low fuss but with a nice mechanism.

Post lady ‘tried’ to deliver 6 more of my GoCommas yesterday, but signature was required & I was not home to sign. Facepalm . Big Smile
Oh well… tomorrow will work.
Had another package from GB too with other stuff in it.

Both were Belgium Post. Did I forget to mention before that Belgium Post requires signature for delivery.

These were my 4th & 5th packages by Belgium Post that required signature. I missed them all on the first delivery attempt. Big Smile

Anybody else got theirs yet?

I looked on Gearbest for new Gocomma knives.

There's one that's new and in stock.

It has a wood handle and it says it's damascus.

It is not a flipper, it doesn't say the blade length, and there are no reviews at the moment.

It's not my cup of tea, but I'm super picky.  ;)

That interesting, we jumped on THESE a couple of months ago when GOOSE made THIS THREAD about them.
But the link you posted has different pictures, says GoComma, and when I just checked; a slightly different price. The knife ‘looks’ the same.

The blade on the one’s we got is 60 mm, just under 2 1/2 inches & is San Mai Damascus.

Fit n’ finish is very good too. It make a very good looking ‘Gentleman’s Knife’, & does gentlemanly tasks very good.

Hard use… probably not. But it was not designed for that.

I like the Damascus, I don’t care if it’s fake. I tend to only get flippers now, I really dig the Kershaw speed assist.

The Damascus on the one’s we got is real. It is San Mai Damascus. A solid steel core sandwiched between two layers of Damascus that has been hot forged welded or hot roll welded to the core steel.

On these the core steel is visible the entire length of the blade spine (and of course the edge). It is dark so is most likely some type high carbon steel. Then after the blade is ground it is etched in Ferric Chloride or a mild acid solution to bring out the Damascus pattern. The etch solution reacts differently with the metal in the Damascus… thus making the pattern appear.

edit for spelling

Got the 6 GoCommas today. They appear to be the same quality as the first one fit n’ finish wise. That would be excellent! All were shaving sharp out of the box. Thumbs Up

Got a Land 910 in another package. Very good fit n’ finish, very sharp out of the box. Hair popping sharp in fact.

Same exact message except for the timestamp (the 12th) is:

Processed Through Facility, 04/19/2019, 3:29 am, BRUSSELS EUROPEAN MAIL CENTRE, BELGIUM

so who knows if it just got The Itis from stuffing away all those waffles.

 

Paid 3bux extra. So much for snappy service…

Sad Sad … What site are you checking it on?? That just doesn’t sound like much info. Sad . I get info on mine from the time they get notification right on thru to when the USPS gets it.

If you haven’t tried yet, try:

I have accurated results with both. Package Radar probably the best results of the two.

If you don’t want to do it yourself Lightbringer, PM me your tracking number & I’ll run it down for you… Guaranteed…… Beer

What day did it ‘supposedly’ ship??

17 Track was more detailed on the package I got today.

This one was actually very fast once Belgium Post actually got there hands on it. It would have been 9 days if I had been home on the 20th.

In my book, it's hard to beat an assisted-opener by Kershaw.

They're not usually super cheap, but they're cheaper than the competition.
