High Quality Chinese

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.

For what it's worth, I have never been stiffed on a knife deal with a knife guy, both as a buyer and a seller. Maybe I was just born under a lucky star but that's been my experience. I ship and receive knives all the time with the promise of a future payment or a simple "we'll figure things out down the road". To Jerry's point, I'm usually working with individuals I know and trust or with with individuals that I've had previously successful dealings.

That said, I would still keep meticulous records in terms of accounts payable and receivable just to stay honest with yourself and others. ::handshake::

I'm loving all three of my Ganzo automatics (Ganzo G-719-BK, Ganzo G7471-BK, and my Ganzo "Firebird" F5782-BK). These are superb and I rotate these for pocket carry. I also carry a Wenger "Traveller", a GT Auto (USA made) with a 2" ATS-34 blade.

On my hip, I carry either my Buck 110 Conversion Auto or possibly my AGA Campolin Fishtail Picklock Auto (with Brazilian Horn scales) or my AKC Fishtail Picklock Auto with Cocobolo scales. Occasionally, I'll carry my new AKC Slimline lever lock (auto) or AKC Stag scale Speed Hunter (auto). There's always my Buck 898 Impact or my Queen Stag-scaled #1L swing guard Auto conversion. If I have a bug up my @$$, I'll drop my Italian AKC F-16 OTF in my sports jacket pocket.

Here is a SanRenMu 9015, a big solid 4 5/8" frame lock folder. Feels like a precision light weight Tank. I have never felt such a confidence inspiring knife.
There is a button that can be slid over the edge of the engaged frame lock, blocking it from moving off the tang end; i.e. keeps the blade locked open.
Hair poppin' sharp. Steel is 12C27 so edge holding should be long lasting.
This is one of The Best tactical style knives i have ever bought.

How many times have we been told--you get what you pay for..Well sometimes in a lot of these China knives we get more than we paid for.
I am constantly surprised at the quality for the money..How can they make them for nothing?? Produced-shipped-distributed-sold and delivered to
our doors for less than the price of 3 dozen do-nuts..
