Hackman clone?

Postby gravknife » Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:09 am

Hello my freinds here at TB

Its strange that i post here on balisongs but i think i have a cheaper version of the Hackman Sorsakoski butterfly type knife from the 60s 70s .
Id love to know where from and its age if possible.

I am puzzled as it has no markings on the blade or plastic handles .
Does anyone know if its a chinese clone of the Hackman or just a completely different make altogether.I notice the top bar is straight in this but the Hickman is shaped on both bars.

oregon posted one with a Daiwa but the pictures are missing ,i hope someone can help with identifying it.

It cost me 8 euros shipped and i have no butterfly knives but this one.They are as difficult to get here and illegal and show up less than switches imho.

Surprisingly it flips quite nicely ,sturdy as a rock and very sharp and i really love it .

Hope your all well here.
Thanks in advance for any help as usual.

Believe that is a Chinese clone. PVK Vegas used to have them in various colors.......about $10 if I remember correctly.

I've seen a few of those Hackman clones around and they are usually around $10. I think they are sometimes sold as the "Jeans knife", though that might be a slightly different one.

Thanks itchibelli

I would really love a hackman in time but this clone isn't too bad at all for playing with and its really sharp.
Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Yeah, I'm doing great. Thanks! My next knife will be my greatest one yet. Although, it might be a complete disaster. It's a pretty complicated one.

You can get a real Hackman for a decent price if you watch for them. Some of them are even in the original sealed packing. The weird thing is that they are mostly in Israel, of all random places.
