Ok since no one seems to want to play recognition game; the models were


CRKT m21 Kit Carson design

Emerson CQC-4K

Kershaw OSO sweet


M21 is really sturdy for a folder even though the safety lever lockup takes some getting used to had to loosen and then loctite the pivotscrew for a smooth opening


The CQC is just a really good folder w the patented Emerson WAVE opening it is fast deployed


The OSO sweet is a cheap little bugger with lightning fast opening that I could play with the whole day

Besides the Medford which is lesser quality all are high quality steel well built midtech folders.


I mainly bought mine from Samier a well reputed clone maker from Hong Kong.


But DHgate or AliExpress or Hong Kong knives on FB all have lots of knives

But there is also a shi*^%load of c%#p out there.

First one a clone the rest are the real McCoy.


1 Spyderco Rubicon clone

Actually not really a clone but a Chinese domestic design with a lot smoother action than the real one which is quite different


2 Spyderco Tenacious

Strong workhorse which you don't have to worry about when you use it


3 Spyderco paramilitary black

A classic tactical folder


4 Spyderco civilian

A ferocious scary folder which require a lot of getting use too before wielding it about. Developed from the Matriarch model especially for LA plain clothes detectives that needed a backup knife.

It can be used to grapple, hook cut and slice in the same movement a d is quite a deterrent.

I once bought a clone from there. Was labeled and sold as S35VN (with matching pricetag). I'm pretty sure it was 9cr13mov or some ######. Definitely didn't hold an edge like it should. So yeah, like all chinese products: what they claim the steel to be is also a huge maybe, maybe not. The Kevin John stuff is decent though.

Awesome. Never had any knives shipping in from abroad. Is there ever a customs problem?

I've not had any issues in the UK. I also have a matriarch, a clone though. It's a very scary blade.


As said, be wary of steels, they are definitely not what they claimed be...

Justification? It is a beautiful ornament for any garage or toolbox


I have a real U.S. M6 bayonet from the Korean War that sits flush on my Marushin m2 carbine.


I also could not resist the SOG Agency tribute to CIA operatives in Vietnam series MaCv-sog knives. The black DLC coating is a breath taker.




Always liked the traditional fighting knives but if I had a lot of money I would get a Randall model 1 the original fighter.

You could buy a knife for coolness factor alone. Or at least I do.


But if you need a knife you usually don't need to spend a lot to get a good one.

Is it for outdoors use? Fishing hunting camping carpenting? Just bushcraft?

I am assuming it is not EDC or self Defense.


Best allround knife all categories imho is the Mora knife you just cannot beat that quality for that sum.


I am not that fond of the Glock knife. Is it perhaps a knife for a impression in airsoft?

Just buy knives.


No reason needed. Buy knives.


Like a picture of a knife? Buy it. Think you may use a knife once in your whole life? Buy it. Think if you'll buy a knife and never end up using it? Buy it anyway.


Knives are awesome and everyone should buy as many as possible.

It is large heavy with good reach, razor sharp out of the box and built to last.

The shine of the blade kind of prevents me from wanna use it to chop things with even if I believe it would be up to the task
