Lots of reasonable quality~price to choose from. I tried Enlan and they seem to be rare, Y-start also.
There are some very nice examples in the links above, at least 6-7 that I would have bought but it’s wading through the rubbish to get the gems.
Most of the “name” brands are OEM or counterfeit copies and I would steer clear of those, I’m not saying you should though.
I’m not a fixed blade collector otherwise that lot could cost me money.
I particularly like some of the Brandon knives.

Some of the links said free shipping but they may lie, obviously check before ordering.
Some may be total rubbish but it’s difficult to tell from a picture on a web page.

Ok, it's not a budget knife, but the first Y-Start i ordered in my life and it feels really good. Sometimes friends or friends of friends ask me, if I could order something for them from Asia. This is one knife for someone in my friend cloud Wink

Light up the darkness.

Unfortunately Aliexpress had a falling out with PayPal ...

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Yes, that is the problem. My question was about chinese webs like fasttech, dx, focalprice, priceangels, tinydeal and so with PayPal. None have quality fixed knives from tekut, ystart etc.

Tekut ares seems to be good too. I like the ystart wood handle and even swordfish ystart and it is impossible to find in normal web shops with paypal free shipping!.
