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.

Phil, here is a link to the 910 I have, $14.79 and $3 or so in shipping.

I really like this one, one of my favorite Chinese made knives, which reminds me I have to get pics and post a couple more.

Roland,
The 'old' SanRenMu 710 is the one you sent me isn't it? It is a very good knife.
BTW, I haven't forgotten about the comparison you wanted to do with the knives you sent me; I have added a few to the equation though! :mrgreen:

Yes it is. I am still carrying & using the first SRM 710 i got 7 years ago. The frame lock is still rock solid & edge retention continues to impress.

So how long does it take to receive an order from gear best? I just ordered two knives from them.

2-4 weeks if it's coming from the land of sliding doors and..... uh, well you probably know the rest of that.

Most shipments from China arrive fairly soon, like under 2 weeks. But sometimes a package takes longer, up to 4 weeks. However in my experience they always do arrive.

Thanks, I'm glad we're talking weeks instead of months. I finally found some knives I can afford. ::ds::

Here is the Feenom...Produced in China someone is paid,shipped to USA someone is paid,sold to distributor someone is paid,sold to market place someone is paid,consumer ends up paying for product and spends 7 to 18 dollars and everybody is happy.How much for a SOMETIMES quality knife does it cost to do this? A friend of mine likes to carry a pocket knife as most southern boys and girls do and he came to me a year or so back with as nice of a bone handled sharp good feeling knife as one would need and he gave 12 dollars shipped to his door..ROUGH RIDER>...Back to what someone said earlier,if it feels good and you like it...get it.

All those way stations in the supply chain and everyone makes money. At the prices they go for on eBay, I would really like to see the base cost to produce.

I'm very happy with the Sanrenmu knives I bought from Gearbest.com, especially the Land 910. I'm glad I bought two of them, the best knife for the money I've ever bought. They took three weeks to arrive.

That's what I paid too, about $8 less than eBay. I bought 3 other Sanrenmu knives too that were only $6 or $7. They're nice but just a little too small. The 910 has been in my pocket since it arrived, my new favorite knife.

Powercutlery.com has a few ganzo autos left but you better order quick. Shipping on the cheap too. I've ordered probably 20 or more, mostly autos, probably why they are almost out. I highly recommend them. Hope this helps anyone wanting them and they have more than just ganzo.

Hi,All:
It pains me clear down into my gizzard,to admit how impressed that I am, with a couple of knives that I acquired recently. they are of very high quality, sharp as a razor, and just beautiful. I might have known that they were made in China, as the price was extremely reasonable. I have become interested in money clip knives, and both these little knives are of that design. One is a Browning, #0097, BRK- SM- Cocobolo, lock open folder, the other a Mtech USA MT-1238, also a lock open folder, with a very thin smooth action, and a dull finish. both are made of Stainless steel. I only wish knives of this quality could be made, and sold, in the USA, for reasonable prices. Here are pictures of them, shown with other knives of that type. You may or not agree with my opinion, but, everyone has, an opinion, just as they they also all have "rear ends".
