Whether we like them or loath them, Chinese manufactured knives have found their way into collections of all sorts across the entire globe. The intent of this forum is to offer a place where AAPK members can discuss the knives and not the politics.

Here is a couple I picked up awhile back. Seem to be of decent quality but haven't used them so I can't comment on their edge retention.

Bought this OT at Walm@rt on sale after Christmas. Have carried in since. Great knife. Rock solid. Gets razor sharp easily and holds its edge well.

Yeah nice looking. It’s a liner lock with a pocket clip and a flipper. 4.5 closed. Blade 3.25. Came in a package deal with a real buster of a Bowie knife. A 10 inch blade I believe. Will send a pic of that one too. Both knives for $9.99 clearance price. Great deal.

Now there's a series of Uncle Henries in D2. While I've swore off Chinese knives, these are really, really tempting. But, they are priced pretty highly. They seem to be of decent quality. Real stag scales too.

For me it depends . They use a few different steels , some of which I'm not in favor of and a couple that I'm good with .

I purchased a " magic " assisted folder and the blade is Aus 8 , which is ok . They have a cr7 that is ok too . Their 400 stuff and the cr3 stuff is a no go for me . For some reason , i cant sharpen the cr3 very well and it frustrated me .
As fa4 as the construction of them , for the most part they're good , especially for the money


Imho , the American knives were better , especially the Derlin. The newer ones have much lighter weight Derlin and I don't like the feel and weight of it . I also prefer carbon steel , but these days it's damn near all stainless

I bought my son a newer sharp finger, which I'm a fan of that pattern big time . His just feels weird along without having the carbon steel ... meh . It did have a decent sheath

I hadc an orange camo China schrade that I used for work and I liked the hell out of it . I believe i left it on a roof out if town , and my luck , haven't been able to find another

For the money, they make a good knife for a work knife and are good to get for the boys ... they'll learn how to sharpen , no doubt

Ruffinogold, Welcome aboard. ::handshake:: As you can, kindly post some photos of whatever knives you may use or collect. I think you will find time spent on the forum to be interesting and worthwhile.

I think if they used SK-5, and hardened it well, it would be a very good steel. From my experience, Rough Rider's carbon steel is inferior to anything American or German.

I was very tempted by that 89OT a couple years back. While I have a USA-made one, it's pretty uncommon. I think Taylor produced much more 89OTs than did ISC. At $10, I don't think you can beat it!

Cody6268 I know the schrade U.S blazer was made from 1989- I'm guessing until they closed shop ? But I did read 1999? They must of made a fare few, in the uk the price is near triple what you pay :( I was luck to get mine in a blister pack with cards , it was £13.99 , a good price but I wouldnt pay nearly £30 , but it's a good knife and serving me well , I carried it today ::tu::

I picked up this Chinese made Old Timer the day before Christmas for a family member that lives out of town. He had seen the ad, a $12.99 Schrade Old Timer knife for $7.99, called and wanted me to get one for him to be picked up the next time he gets down here. I really didnt take it out of the box and look at it closely until this morning. I am not liking what I see. The knife is tang stamped Schrade on the mark side and 28 OT on the pile side. Nowhere is the knife marked Made in China, just on the box. It comes with a belt sheath and is 3 5/8" long overall closed. As you can see in the photos it has some issues, the worst being a crack thru one of the pins in the handle material. The handle material, which is checkered, appears to be wood, with a similarity to walnut. The handle material comes up short in a few places to coming out flush with the wood. The blade has been sharpened some what at the factory, but would need additional work on the edge before being sharp enough to use. Maybe I am asking too much for an $8 knife to not have these short comings, but it is marked "Schrade Old Timer".
