Re: I saw these and liked the looks.

I have one of the smaller ones with the darker handle. It functions well and is easy to carry. My only complaint is that the lever doesn’t lay completely flat because of the rounded handle and bolster. Other than that, it’s a good looking knife. That is good news. This will likely be money well spe...

Re: Just booked a five-night Hotel stay In Tijuana.

Since I don't drink, I'll be spending my time in the Tijuana Wax Museum, Tijuana Cultural Center and at Playa de Tijuana (Tijuana Beach). Food, shopping, and good, clean fun will be my primary focus for five solid days.

Re: I saw these and liked the looks.

I saw the larger size. There were three on display. Two opened fast and one a bit lazy. You would think the smaller ones would be faster all things being equal.... Does that mean the odds are in my favor? :?: :roll: Quien Sabe? I read another report about one of these tending to opening slowly. Per...

Re: I saw these and liked the looks.

I saw them at a show for around $25...Well worth that price as a beater knife for small cutting chores Tom: Were they quick to deploy? These seem like great "get off me" knives for the price. The 7.44" has a 3.06" blade can be tucked into a pocket for easy carry. The 9.44" may be a bit bulkier but ...

Re: I saw these and liked the looks.

I "bit" on a 7.48" and 9.44" black-scaled knives costing $17.72 and $18.86 (in that order). If they're half as good as the people that buy them say they are I will not be out $36.58. I think they'll be okay.

I'll let everyone know when they arrive.

The quality?

Re: 2019 Happy Father’s Day

Good for you, Billyfish! Just pray for us whose children are dead or estranged. I am the only one left in my family and my children (the living ones) don't know me. It is truly sad.

Life goes on.

A "special" Kris blade Leverletto.

This is the same question from another thread. (Please pardon the redundant query).

I am looking for a 9" Leverletto, Dominus-style quillons with a Kris blade. This is the only reason I have been looking at DHGate. Could I get some help?

Thanks in advance.

Chinese "knockoff" automatic Knives?

Has anyone purchased any of the inexpensive Chinese "knockoff" imitations of the Italian Automatics on DHGate? They state that they're 440C and other reputable steels. Others claim they are 5cr13 and 9cr18 steel (the latter being comparable to AUS8 and 440C steels). :?: :roll:

Comments? Opinions?

Lol, someone used the Paint program to hide the guards and button. It's a regular Italian knockoff stiletto.
It had me going there a while, now I understand. (I feel like an idiot).
