Re: My Ganzo G707 arrived today.

I have been carrying this Pro-Tech "The Don" knock-off since it arrived, and have found that it is more useful than I had previously thought. The 440C steel has held its edge and it pierces when is needed. This is a darned good knife!

My Ganzo G707 arrived today.

This Ganzo is perfect! It opens smoothly, and after 6 minutes on my Spyderco Tri-Angle "Sharpmaker" the bayonet blade has a needle-point and a razor-sharp edge.

For $18.56, it is a bargain at half the price!

Re: I just ordered a new Ganzo G707 today.

Since I am paying so little the G707 may see some carry in the "mean streets" in the City Of Roses (ANTIFA capitol of the west coast).

Disquieting, isn't it?

I just ordered a new Ganzo G707 today.

I decided that I was worth "taking the plunge" on one of these "look-alike" stilettos. $18.56 USD isn't too expensive for what is little more than a well-manufactured "letter opener" (It does have a tip-up pocket clip so that it could quickly be "brought into actio...

Very nice, Ian! Quite special too. Wherever you found it, keep looking. I'm sure you can find others like it.

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Mikov!

I'd like to have one with a clip-point blade. That and black Buffalo Horn would make for a decent EDC knife.

Re: Ganzo took a crap.

I'm believe that Knifeworks (formerly Blade Play) has replacement springs for the Boker Kalashnikov knives. Perhaps these could be used.

From Erle Stanley Gardiner's "Perry Mason" The Tale Of The Twice-Told Twist.

Kevin O'Neil played a young juvenile Delinquent named Lenny Beale accused of murder. (By the way, the Perry Mason Season 9, episode 21, was the only episode filmed in color). Lennie (O'Neil) was charged with murder when an adult criminal confederate was found with a large Barlow knife firmly planted...

Re: Recommendation for first OTF Stiletto

An excellent "starter" OTF would be the "Lightning" (Taiwanese manufactured) knife. These are relatively inexpensive and can be had in either a clip-point blade or stiletto-style. This knife can also be a "user". (Many buy them and use them for years). If you buy an F-1...

Re: Opinions of Omerta 11" Picklock knives.

I see. Someone somewhere is selling "AGA Campolin" ring-pull, automatics that are patterned after the old "Hecho In Mexico" picklocks that were somewhat blocky and seems to have the constitution of a 1946, Dodge Flathead in-line six engine. While appearing a bit crude, they were ...

Opinions of Omerta 11" Picklock knives.

I have one of the Omerta Picklock stilettos with a 1095 steel bayonet blade and have had it for at least four years. I like this stiletto as is seems better constructed than some of my Italian knives. These are American made and proudly so.

Opinions?
