  3. I'll buy it as soon as it's offered to the public. What production knife do you think it resembles?

  4. I don't know any major brand knife which it resembles. Although the pocket clip reminds me to the C.R. Sebenza.

    1. Sanrenmu once had a knife called the GB-910,I believe, which was very similar looking to this new knife. The SRM was a very good, and very popular knife that went out of production for some reason. I like the looks of this new mystery knife and will probably buy one...when I find out what it is.

    2. The SRM GB-910 looks like a Sebenza with G10 scales to me. This folder comes with a different blade and handle design. So it seems an original design to me.

    1. It was a local purchase for me. I suppose sooner or later it will appear online with a brand name too.

    3. I've just stumbled upon this folder on Ebay with logos on the blade. Search for "FD750 knife". ;)

  8. Hello, a bit late but do you know where I could get this knife as of now? EBay's listing of this blade has ended and two sellers on Aliexpress that I checked with currently have no stock :(
