By the way, the Gocomma knife with the 8.9cm blade is now $18.99

A little pricey, but way cheaper than a short time ago.

Thanks for the heads up, I had not looked lately. This one is extremely nice too… and the clip on it is very good from the get go. Wink

Mmmmm, I’m rather impatient, so…

Next batch’ll probably take over a month, too. Sick

4 more of my GoCommas arrived today, leaving only 1 still in transit. Wink

The last 6 of the Damascus & Wood got here too.

Visually they all appear as the first ones. Excellent fit n’ finish, every one of them.

Resisting the urge (so far) to order a few more to sell. Wink

Got my few in the mail today. Mighty fine little knife. Sharp as can be. That is possibly the sharpest knife right out of the box I have ever received. I think it’s tied with the Sanrenmu 1161 for sharpest. Nice thick liner, decent lock up and the G10 isn’t too thick or too thin. Definitely a win. I am keeping one and passing one on to a buddy. Think I will grab a few more for Xmas gifts this year as well. I’ll keep an eye on the price.

Thanks again for the heads up teacher.

My pleasure toddcshoe, glad you like it. I fully agree with what you said about it too. It’s just a great little knife.
I guess we all can thank raccoon city for calling attention to it by starting this thread. Glad I ordered my first one & saw how good it was. The rest is history… for all of us…. Wink

My last one arrived today. Gave a couple to 2 friends today too.

Contemplating ordering a few more…… Thumbs Up . Cash . Cash

I only created this thread because I thought I found large nice-looking assisted-openers at a low price.

I am glad people like the knives they have received, however.  :BEER:

You never did order one?

Thanks for starting the thread. I remember when you first brought it up I was going to order off of ebay I think. They sat in my cart for a while and I never did complete the purchase. Teacher giving it rave reviews finally made me order a few.

  it's hard to see what all the fuss is about these Glaucoma knives.coolcoolcool

I got mine the other day and cut myself three 4 times with it . The blade was very loose and it flipped back on my thumb twice .right on top of the cut that had just stopped bleeding. The other was when I used the blade to scratch the back of my wrist ...two more little cuts ... made it an even 4 cuts in about 20 minutes of chatting with friends and playing with my new knife . Later on I found a T8 torx bit and tightened the blade because it was sloppy loose .I didn't expect it to flip as quickly after snugging the screw down but it just got rid of the blade play and didn't affect the opening speed. It does close a bit slower but it was way too loose to start .

  My thumb thanked me  .

 I give it a 1 and a half thumbs up

Ugh. Don’t talk to me about sharp.

Used my Winco chinese cleaver, was washing it off as gingerly as I always do it, carefully because I know it’s sharp… I just lightly creased the flappy fold of skin between thumb and forefinger on the blade and felt it… barely.

Hmm, whew, ain’t bleeding. Ummm, nope, it’s bleeding. Oh yeah, it’s bleeding. Little stoopit “papercut” with the blade, but oh boy did it cut.

For a 10buk cleaver, it’s like a f’n samurai sword.

Just for a change.
I bought a coupla Japanese Kitchen knives for Daughters wedding present. 54 yrs. 3 kids. First wedding.
Says she was just making sure.
12 days fro Japan to Queensland. (Not bad)

Damn nice knives. Single edged Aogame Blue.
But, Cheapest I could get That I liked, were $300 plus each.
She;d better bloody like them.
Oh. She is a chef.

Ah well.
Back to my $12 speshuls again hey.
My little black SRM 6040 arives a coupla days ago.
Without the stupid clip, It’s a nice keyring knife.
Putting clips on those tiny things is a waste of materials I reckon.

SRM 6040 – I bought them for my kids last year. Every kid needs a small lock back don’t they. Hollow blade and sharp – good enough for them to carve their initials on trees …. Because that’s what they’re meant for isn’t it?

G'day mate, ow ya garn?
Yeah, nah good mate

That is a level of sharpening I have never achieved. stunning. Must be a really high quality steel and someone who knows what to do with it.

I sharpen on a Lansky and then strop to 1K and 3K. fairly sharp, but not “slicing a tomato while it is sitting there sharp”.

I received my Gocomma knife today!

It's the one with a 7.7cm D2 blade and a G10 handle that was on sale for $9.99

It is the fourth non-assisted flipper that I have owned, and it flips much better than the other three.

My main issue is that the clip is so tight, it's unusable as is.

I might be able to bend it so that it becomes usable.

My other complaint is that the handle is G10, and I prefer metal handles, but I knew this when I ordered it.

Unless I can fix the clip, I cannot carry it.

Overall it is a very good knife for the money.

I wish all non-assisted flippers opened as well as this knife.

 

EDIT:  I bent the clip a little bit with pliers.

Now the clip is usable, but it's not perfect.

It's kinda difficult to clip the knife to my shorts pocket, but I think I will carry this knife anyways.  :-)

Is it real D2, as far as you can tell? Also, what kind of lock does it have, the description says “mechanical lock” – whatever that means?

Thanks.

Waiting for a few knives to go off sale so I can use my points.

I would guess that it is a liner lock, but I'm not sure.

I do not know if it is really D2, and I haven't cut anything with it yet.

It’s a liner lock. Thumbs Up

As far as ‘real D2’… not sure. But…. it holds a great edge. I have cut at least 200 feet of various thickness cardboard, hacked on a dry hickory stick, hacked on a pine 2 × 4, cut some rope, cut a bit of meat & fruits, & done some whittling…. it is still shaving sharp & has not been sharpened yet. I’m waiting to see what it takes to dull it. ;).

So at this point, for me; I don’t care what the steel is. It holds a great edge & will cut. Thumbs Up

For $9.99 I still can’t believe this knife…… ShockedSmile

Thanks, teacher – according to your experiences with this steel it is at least a stronger variant than other China steels. I am a recovering knife-hobby enthusiast (I have not had a knife purchase in 2 months now), the cheaper steels I have do not hold the edge as well and, with regular use, need to be sharpened almost weekly.

My pleasure M3CSL. Thumbs Up l
Yep, I had been in “knife collecting recovery” for quite some time until I discovered these Chinese knives (thanks raccoon city.. Cash ) in this very thread. For years I bought Benchmade, Case, CRK (Chris Reeve), ESEE, you name it. Along with Customs by Scott Cook, Ed Caffrey, Robert Dark, Wayne Hendrix, Ray Laconico, Michael Morris, Charles Ochs III (Oxs Forge), & Eddie White… to name a few.

Then one day, with an empty wallet & eating Beenie Weenies; I realized I was out of control. Facepalm Facepalm Facepalm yep, triple “facepalm” I was so bad

Anyway… I went cold turkey & did not buy a knife for a few years. I found these Chinese knives, as mentioned; and started getting a few. “So far”… keeping the urge under control. Big Smile

I am frankly amazed by the quality of many of these Chinese knives…. Thumbs Up

And yeah… ‘even if’ the steel of this one is not D2, it is a darn good steel. Smile

If the Gocomma knife that has a 8.9cm D2 blade and a G10 handle drops in price to $16 or less, I'll buy it.

(But I don't want to spend $19.)

And Gocomma should come up with model names for their knives!  :P
