New folders on Aliexpress part 2

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. I was actually looking at the Twosun with flat tanto last weekend on Ebay.
    The problem that I had with this one is that it didn't come with a steel insert in the lock bar like the regular tanto version.
    Here, the listing has ended but you can still see the pics of the lock bar:

    1. I still prefer the full flat ground version. There are a lot of titanium frame locks out there from the well known brands without a steel lockbar insert. So there's a good chance that lock up will be fine.

  2. Just received the Star Lord clone today from Ben at Ali. It's a big knife with surprisingly good ergonomics. Of course it is hefty but thanks to some milling work in the Ti handles lighter than the original. And a tiny bit cheaper. The detent is very strong, which gives its heavy blade a kick of a flipping action. If you lightswitch the flipper tap with enough pressure the recoil is even stronger than the one of my ZT0350 - and that is assisted! The blade is shaving sharp out of the (smelly) pouch. Unfortunately mine is not perfectly centered. It does not touch the side it's leaning towards although the tolerances are very tight. Maybe it's intentional leaning to the lockside to prevent the very strong subframelock from pushing it to the other side later on. A very nice and well built knife. If one likes its style, it's worth the money. For the clone that is, naturally.

    1. Thank you for your detailed feedback!
      Is it as shiny/blingy in real life as in Ben's pics?

    2. Well, the Star Lord isn't really an understatement in pocket cutlery but I can gladly attest that it's not blingy in a visually hurtful way. It's big, it's heavy and the titanium has a non shiny finish. To paraphrase ZT's tag line: It's built like a tank - an elegant tank in this case. If you like I can send you some pictures. I took some measurements, too. Ben's numbers are right. (Didn't expect anything else). And for that kind of blade and a handle that big (together about 23 cm) 235 g ain't bad.

    3. If you could link a couple of pics that would be great.

    4. Sorry, I do not use any upload services right now. E-mail only, at least at the moment, maybe later.

    5. And now I use Photobucket - but it's slow ... maybe I'll change to Flickr later. Anyway, here are some shots of the Star Lord. Please forgive the quality, the pics were taken with my cell phone: http://s346.photobucket.com/user/edrooney1986/library/Knives/Star%20Lord%20Clone?sort=3&page=1

    6. Great, thank you!
      The color of the scales looks definately darker than in Ben's pics which is a plus for me.

  3. When I wans checking the CH knife with the skull on it I've also seen the CH3503. Do you know if that thingy on the scale is there for the looks only or does it have any other purpose?

    1. That's a decorative "wheel of fortune".

    2. So is it spinning at least?
      That would be cool, somehow...

    3. I read somewhere that it can be spinned.

  4. Then the next thing should be an automatic mechanical watch implemented in a knife scale :P
