Oerla knives

Post by Twobit »

Does anyone know anything about Oerla brand knives? I'm looking at an attractive tanto fixed blade for edc.. Price is very reasonable. Features are outstanding. Just wondering if anyone has a blade from them and what you think of it. Thanks for any insight.

Ian, I certainly will do that, mate. I sent the link for the one I've got my eye on to my son so he might get his mum to order it for Father's Day. Not very subtle, I know, but it gets me something I'm sure to like.

I purchased a Kiridashi from them quite some time ago with the intent to use it to throw and just general utility. Cheap, Chinese ( obviously), but definitely not crap. It performs well, but it's definitely not a refined blade. For the $20 it costs, I have no real issues.

The reviews on the eBay page are very good. Both for the knives and the seller.

Got my Father's Day gift today and I'm very impressed with the knife. The sheath is well made and holds the knife securely. I'm not thrilled with the belt clip. I intend to take the matter up with the company as it came shipped directly from them. Couldn't get a good photo of the knife in the sheath to upload.

Here's a picture of the knife in the sheath. I used someone's tip about taking a screenshot of the photo to make it up loadable.

Thanks, Ian! The grip feels very good in my hand whether forwards or reversed. Good heft, very sharp and good carrying options. The company did send me a replacement belt clip, but I already epoxied the spacers in place on the original one. As long as only wear a 1-1/2" belt there's no issue. That's my normal width of belt anyway.
