  1. Yeah yeah, rub it in ;) But I really don't need a 4th F95/Hati. Or do I? I'll let you know how the Dicoria 111 turns out. Maybe I get the tanto-ish GT for christmas (is still available). By the way: the Kizer Thumbper is shit. Way to narrow, bad grip and the sheath is junk.

    1. What sort of Hati(s) do you have? I only have a G10 one with steel frame-lock side (not the cheap one but a decent high-quality version) so I could rationalize getting this new CF version. Or should I take the plunge and order the Dicoria F111 like you? :)

      Sorry for the Kizer. Have you checked the reviews before ordering it?

    2. I've checked, but not thoroughly. I suppose I've got a lemon. A tight sheath is rather important for a neck knife and mine has a gap. I couldn't fix it, guess it's a molding error. Kizer isn't really cooperative in this matter (we have no problem, sheath good) but nevermind, I'll try to make one myself. I have an "old" GT T-pattern without the jimping (ok), Dicoria D2/CF hati (great, I like the satin blade finish, just like tje GT s35vn) and the GT F95 m390 shiny Ti with cf inlays (perfect! but expensive). If the new D2 Hati has the same hardware as the current M390 version (just like the Jeans and the Polutchetkiy), I'd certainly ckeck that one out. I'm very curious about the 111, can't wait. I just cannot justify another F95. And the d2's are too abused to resell lol.

    3. Rectification: Kizer offered to send a new sheath. That's what I call great service!

    4. What's about your DIY kydex sheath project? :)

  2. I couldn't let it pass... and jumped on the titanium ZT0055. From the pictures it seems to have the real retractable flipper tab, as opposed to the steel version. Plus it's got weight relief holes in the scales, so it's going to see way more pocket time, I guess...
    I know, I'm weak!

    1. Last night I was checking the pictures for the flipper tab too. :) It seems it has a separate flipper tab for me too. So sooner or later it'll end up in my pocket I'm afraid...

    2. Yep, you'll see it as soon as I get it, and possibly that'll be all it takes for you to order it!

    3. For $66.88 I guess I won't be resisting too long. :))

    1. I think they already did it. I was browsing newest knives and found this
      Green thorn F111 3D folding folding knife D2 blade
      Maybe more sellers will have them later, because I'm not sure about current random store names that sell them now.

    2. They already have...Green Thorn F111 with aluminum handle and D2 blade $69.99:

      I'm hoping they make the carbon fiber version in D2 as well!!

    3. But I'm longing for titanium! :)

    4. Oh come on! That white aluminium d2 one is beautiful! Should I cancel the Dicoria? The still haven't shipped due to "mid autumn holiday". For the price I can get the GT AND the new C199 Spyderco Nirvana at Dicoria....holy sh..!

      Delete
    5. Or 20 pieces of the Sanrenmu 7010! :))

      Wow, they photoshopped the opening hole of the Nirvana to oval! :)

      Delete
    6. And it's obviously not an integral frame, but that design...I love it. I already cancelled the Dicoria 111. I'll wait untill the price drops or untill 11.11 for a Green Thorn. I think I'm going to check out the aluminium...it has jimping and a more low profile pocket clip. And I like aluminium. It seems more scratch resistant than Ti (but I love Ti too ;)

    7. Jeez, I'm weak and easy to persuade lol. Kesiwo promised to send the cf 111 quickly, so I resumed the order. I'm going to avoid websites or stores with knives for a couple of weeks. That would be a wise and cost saving decision.

      Delete
    8. I highly recommend the seller Feng (https://www.aliexpress.com/store/737989). He is the one that commissioned the Dicoria 111 build and is behind the Bear Claw/Lovocoo brand of knives. If you become a regular customer he will give you a significant discount--just ask nicely. His service is really top notch.

      Knife Trivia: the Dicoria 111 is based on a limited edition 111 made for 2 Shirogorov clubs called Shirogorov Bears (SB in the bear logo, USA) and the Congress (sunglasses on the bear logo, Russia). I think they only made 35 SB + 35 Congressional knives or something ridiculous like that. The distinctive hole/groove on the blade and the pivot collars distinguish this limited edition which I've recently seen for sale for $1600-$1700. The ltd editions also have engraving on the backspacer commemorating the clubs and a special annual gathering they have. These are obviously hard core fans to be able to have special runs of Shirogorovs made just for them. However we can enjoy a replica that looks to be nearly 1:1 with these exclusive knives. In my opinion they are the best looking variant of the 111.

    9. Wow, crazy prices for those limited editions! Anyway thanks a lot for the back story! :)

      I also received excellent (after sale) customer service from the following stores:
      Dicoria Stores HERE and HERE
      Lovocoo Stores HERE and HERE

      I'm more thrilled about the new titanium ZT 0055 copy than the Nirvana. Even the original integral version doesn't have too much effect on me.

  4. Thanks for the heads up on the F111, I always love Green Thorn's stuff. I ended up ordering the D2 version. D2 is plenty of steel for my needs. Keep posting the switchblades as well, I'm always on the look out for new automatics. Thanks Isti!

    1. Hi Art,
      You're welcome! You might be interested in THESE new Sith Lord Ultratechs by Jufule. They look pretty cool in this black/red color combo.
      I already ordered a Bounty Hunter version otherwise I would be in trouble to choose. :)

    1. Great! :) How is the handle? Isn't it slippery?

      Delete
  6. Not too slippery, the texture doesn't matter too much as it is the shape of the handle itself that does the job + solid finger guard (flipper ) - I love it :) (sorry for a late reply )
