  1. Is it only me or is that Zero Breakthrough a bit... cheap? Not price wise but an inlay on the show scale, no clip but then no inlay on the locking side? A bit expensive then I'd say...

    1. A pocket clip would be handy for sure.

    2. I was thinking exactly the same about the pocket clip. Too bad, because nice design otherwise.

    3. I'm glad I'm not a fan of timascus. That stuff makes everything so expensive.

    4. The first version of the Zero Break looks better, full CF on both sides...still available through Dicoria.

  2. Well, I can understand if some forks dislike pocket clips on a fancy knife.
    But then add a pouch and make both sides the same. Inlays on both sides and the framelock recess on the inside, just like on the Mnandi.
    But yeah, argueing about stuff that's too expensive for me anyways :P

  3. How does the AKC Leverletto work? Is that a push button to open? What's the lever looking thing?

    1. There's a push button to release the blade and it also has a safety switch.
      The lever is for unlocking the blade for closing. As you push down the lever it lifts "lock-bar" up.

  4. Isti, where did the Socom Elite clone go? Shows not found.

    1. It seems that shop got closed temporarily. If you find something what you really like I recommend ordering it as soon as possible because things can change on Ali day by day.
      Anyway I stumbled upon the auto version HERE.

    2. Remember it's Chinese New Year, so I'm noticing some funky behavior from some stores. Wait until next week and things should be back to normal.

  5. That District 9 fixed blade is nice...3mm blade stock, looks like a scandi grind. Does anyone know who makes District 9? Are they another one of Maxace's dozens of offshoots?

  6. The AKC Leverletto switchblade is a good razor? Is it worth buying?
