Because of a stupid rule of Aliexpress the sellers are forced to photoshop the locking mechanism on the folders. So don't worry these folders come with solid frame-locks!

    1. The MG DAMM has a good blade steel (N690). It sharpens very similar to my VG10 blades.
      My new Light Cavalry folder seems quite promising too with CPM-D2 blade but I need more time to test it.
