  1. I bought two of the Benchmade Proper clones. One as a gift. :-)

    1. G10 or Micarta? I'm about to order the micarta version.

  2. Trying to resist the micarta version...
    For some reason, I am in a micarta mood atm.
    Decided to skip the Brother 1503 and AD15 right now for 11.11 and get a YX-751 micarta instead.

  3. To go along my F3 micarta that is ;)

    1. Nice try :D No for some reason, that doesn't do it for me, to simple or to similar to many knives I already have.

    2. I must say, I like those Micarta versions, too, esp. the Maxace. Check knife budget...
      Zero zero punto zero. Too bad.

    3. I also like the micarta version of the Samurai but it's out of my budget at the moment. On the other hand I'm tempted by the more budget friendly Maxace Balance-S. I watched LTK's review and he liked them too.

    4. Well, I'm torn between the flipper Mouse, the TS164 and the 250 Togrog Hidden Tiger coin from Mongolia. That pattern would make for such a nice patch...
      I know I'd ano the TS164 but I have no clue if I'd mod the mouse ;)

      Btw, what would you recommend as a backup lamp in the car, a red 2013 Mazda6 if you want to know, one reason for the tight budget ;)
      My rechargeable one with a 3.7V battery doesn't seem to like the sub-zero temperatures (just as any accu), maybe a chemical battery would work better for that need? 9V battery plug on lamp? I have plenty of them from my pre-anodizer times ;)

    5. My GT Mouse3 is as good as it gets. The fine stone washed finish looks - feels so stunning it would be a crime to anodize it.

      I usually take my Nitecore NU30 headlamp with me in the car. Though I never tried to leave it in the car in winter.

    6. I have a Nitecore lamp on my key, your fault ;)
      I just wanted to have a lamp in the car for the moments when I really need light and realize that my 'rechargeable' lamp is down...
      I guessed chemical batteries could handle the cold a bit better.

  4. Time to snag that Green Thorn Mouse, GT Neon, and GT F7 in scandi grind. Going all out this 11.11

  5. Does anyone remember seeing a clone of "The James Brand" knife on AliExpress or DHgate? I could of sworn I saw one. I think it had aluminum scales and D2. Maybe I was dreaming... I was looking for it on AliExpress for the 11.11 sale but I can't find it.

    1. Here it is with titanium or G10 handle:
      The James Brand Elko

    2. Those prices look more reasonable that the official ones. Wouldn't surprise me if they fell off the same assembly line.

    3. The Green Thorn F7 is one of my favorite purchases. That's an awesome deal. Enjoy FeiMao!

    4. hello, are there any current clones of the Elko knife that you are aware of? thank you

    5. The Elko is hard to find. I will post the link if I stumble upon one.

    6. after some browsing, I came across this listing

      not sure if any other readers of your blog are still interested in the Elko, but I think I will first try something different as a keychain knife, like this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000240556327.html

      both of these are about 6 cm in length when closed, thanks again

    7. Thank you for sharing the links!

  6. Isti, I am surprised that this one has passed under your radar despite being available for more than a year. CF Scales, Ti liners, bearings, axis lock, Damasteel or S35VN steel options.


    1. I know them. :) I was interested in the Damasteel version but the big logo on the blade turned me away. I even asked the seller wether there was a sterile version. Otherwise it looks like a high quality & decent folder. With select coupons it's $12 cheaper at the moment.

    2. To me that's looking like a $50 Kershaw, esp. with that logo.

    3. Review in Russian https://youtu.be/_-iPo90K4Mo

  7. Came across this post, very exciting!

  8. Actually, here you go ;)

    1. Wow, awesome! Just when I tought I could get away without spending too much on knives on 11.11! :D
      Clickable link for the Shamwari front flippers: M390 and Damascus version

    2. I know!
      I had already placed all my orders this morning before going to work and have already spent way more than I should and now this!
      Still debating if I should cancel some of my orders and get this, or wait for the next sale in March where they should be cheaper since they just came out yesterday, or if I should just bite the bullet, get it now and get an earful from my wife later :$
      Anyway, I really want one. Would probably go with the Damascus since I don't have a damascus knife in my collection atm and it suits this knife well.

    3. I would also go for the damascus one but I like the handle of the M390 more. I know it's a serious 1st world problem! :D

    4. Looks nice, clean lines. I may be mistaken but I think the maker of this new Shamwari clone is the one that used to call themselves Samier/Hong Kong Knives?

    5. According to this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/chineseknives/comments/dty8x8/links_below/
      "These are not made by Samier or the same factory. Completely different guy and factory. If you're interested in the Samier story as I understand it, is that Samier was actually cheated by his brother. Not sure real brother or friend. They seem to use that word interchangeably. The brother started using a different factory to get the knives made and that factory was using less expensive steels than they were telling Samier. Samier didn't realize until the LTK video and basically went out of business. The store selling these got stuck with all the leftover Samier stuff and marked the knives accordingly and dropped the prices at a loss. I've bought Samier knives from before the factory change and after and there is a definite difference in manufacturing.

      This is the same guy that made the Fischer Battle that LTK tested and came back confirmed s35vn. Definitely looking forward to the LTK testing though, because you can never be quite 100%."

  9. Have you seen the Walther GFT? Something like that, maybe minus the billboarding for $30 to $40 directly from PRC would be neat.

  11. Glad to see the mini Halo 5 get some attention. I love mine, and it's California legal! It's a great deal for under $40. I'd like to see some more California legal autos, hopefully with some original designs. Ganzo should be paying attention.

  12. Just got a bugout clone and a 940-1 clone. Just saw that they now have the CF hati again, I've got to quit looking on Ali or I'm going to be broke! Haha, the new Petrified Fish 818 looks interesting as well.

    1. I have one of those new Petrified Fish 818 flippers! :) It's an excellent flipper with an awesome blade design. Quality and size wise it's very similar to the Ganzo FH11. I suppose they are made in the same factory.

  13. Green Launch 4 clone arrived. Tiny spearhead in my pocket. Snaps open so hard that it makes you nervous. Playing with OTF's is more fun. But I liked blade shape and all.

    1. How is the initial blade sharpness?

    2. I think you can easily shave the top layer of your fingers's skin. I know because I did that accidentally.
      It's one of the sharpest folders amongst a handfull of Ali and Fasttech knives I've purchased. On par with or better than my thin-bladed "pennish" knive: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32955335379.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.132b4c4dg3KiTI

    3. That's sharp enough! :) Thanks for the info!

  14. Do any of you guys have the link to a clone paragon phoenix or paragon warlock
