Knife bargains ? Post here
Hi, post bargain knives here. I'm looking for a few more of the pleasant surprise type things that were bought with low expectations but turned out pretty well.

I'll kick off with

SKU 1809400

Very slim, reasonable edge thats got that chisel profile, you know one side flat, the other with a fairly steep bevel. Good liner lock with BB, seatbelt cutter is good for cable ties etc.
It's a good, solid, cheap worknife although the led torch bit was DOA but when I get some QT at work I might swap it out for something better.

Oh, I like that. Wishlisted, thank you.

Waiting for this one to ship out now: SKU 3886100

I'll review it when it arrives, but it looks quite decent for under $8.

Disclaimer, I like knives that punch above their weight class. Think Spyderco little big knives.

SKU 1150900 was sold out long ago but the tanto version is still available SKU 1150901. Real nice ergonomics for its size and G10 scales.
If I'm ignoring you it's because you're fallacy impaired. Here's hoping you rectify your problem so that we might have a sensible conversation.

SKU 1282102

Amazing small knife for the money. Built like a freaking tank with full SS liners and you can still flick the blade the action is so smooth. lol The blade on mine will even drop when I depress the back lock like my full sized blades. Beats the everliving snot out of the small Buck Bantam.

This might be old news, but it is one of the most popular knives here for a reason SKU 1451614. I have mine since a year and it is stil one of my most favourite EDCs.

lol, yeah, that one is a bit easy. :p

Pretty much the knife (or successor to the knife) that put SanRenMu on the map. Fortunately, IMO, SRM has proven they are far more than a one-shot-wonder. Still essentially a new "classic".

I like decent knives, I use mine everyday at work, but just hate the thought of spending more than the cost of a Mora on something that will get blunted, broken and binned so a big pile of good cheap knives is always useful to have around. Keep 'em coming !

These SKU 1452001 ( killer scales ) and SKU 1850102 are solid and a very good value. I prefer the Viper for EDC as it sits 'low' and stealthy in my pocket due to it's clip and it's not quite as hefty or serious as the Enlan but just as bad ass. Both are well made and worth the nod for under $20.

SKU 1755600

My favorite EDC. I normally like drop points and didn't think I'd like the point in this one, but I absolutely love this little knife! The sharp point is extremely handy on an EDC type knife. It's also a flicker, which is something I love as it makes the knife more fun for me. lol Currently it is on my desk at home waiting for me to fix the clip as it got caught and bent, otherwise it would be clipped to my right hand front pocket. It's thin and small enough to stay out of the way.

I bought this one a while ago SKU 1724208. Lots of umph...

Unfortunately I was not able to buy knives here for a long time, because of missing shipping options. Apparantly this has changed. Just checked - I can get free delivery with HK post now. Yay! I guess that news drowned in all them troll posts and passed me by...
