CH knives
I noticed that FT has started to carry some CH knives.

For those looking for great quality knives with premium materials but don't want to pay premium western prices, I highly recommend this brand.
The owner/main designer used to work at Kizer from what I hear. He makes primarily original designs (he also made a couple of clones/homage).

IMO, this is an upcoming Chinese brand worth looking at that in time will be as well regarded as Kizer by Western customers.
I have a few Kizers, and IMO, the CH are as good or better for 1/2 of Kizer's cost.

Do they lock? Can't be bothered with non-locking knives.

All are milled and anodized Titanium framelocks with steel lockbar insert, ceramic ball bearings, ceramic detente and then AUS8, D2, S35VN or M390 depending on the models.

I've been looking at CH for six months or so and see, as you've said, great quality at more or less an entry level price for Chinas upper end knives. I have also noticed on one site that replacement ceramic bearings are available.
I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

Exactly what I mean, excellent value.
I have absolutely no problem or shame in putting my $125 CH3507 against any $250/$300 knife from a western brand.
Not that I need it but may I ask where you've seen the replacement bearings? From what I recall when I opened the 3504, they seemed pretty standard.

These actually look pretty decent thanks. I lose pocket knives so often I'm not willing to spend more than a 10 dollar Opinel.

Yes, they could be standard at that but I saw offerings on Aex for a few sizes of "CH" bearings. It may be just hype or that they "fit" CH brand.

I just checked a few out, none I looked at have locks that can be seen clearly in the pics.

I prefer a top lock, but some liner locks are ok. No lock?

I have some. They are called fixed blades.

Does anybody who owns one know if they can be operated (Unlocked/folded) with one hand, or wearing thin gloves?

All their knives here are frame locks.
In some of the pics, you don't see the lock because the pics are taken from AliEx.
A lot of sellers there photoshop the locks or else their listings gets removed, some kind of BS rule of the site.
All the models I own can easily be opened/closed one hand.
As for operating with gloves, that would depend on the size of the knife and the size of your hand, it being harder on the smaller knives with large hands.
I prefer larger knives so the 3 that I own, I can use them with gloves no problem.

If you like Mora try a Hultafors HD, The Mora on steroids. Sorry if this is hijacking bdpf79, I have looked at the CH knives but have not pulled the trigger yet on one. My users are the inexpensive knives like the Mora but the pricier toys are for admiring and 'flick therapy'. FT can be a dangerous place for those with a bad pointy thing addiction!
