Welcome to iKC !!

You'll find a quite friendly community of cutlery collectors here. Should you experience any difficulties .. navigating the site .. posting comments or pics .. anything -- just ask .. someone will step up to the plate & offer assistance.


Autos .. yup, rather fond of those myself.


Have you tried the GANZO brand ?? They're not that well known .. I don't think. They're a good build for the $.

The G707 is what I refer to as their godfather clone .. I've purchased 4 of them .. gifted 2 .. use one .. have one closeted away. I've opened one up HERE .. if you've an interest in an inside view.

The G7211/12 is a good build too. The 11 is a satin lade finish while the 12 is a stonewashed finish. A lot of knife for the money.

The G719 is a good build .. I'm just not personally fond of the handle design. Strictly a personal preference thing. The knife itself is fine.

I've ordered Ganzo's recently released G7482 .. haven't received it yet. The shipping time is a solid 2 weeks from overseas. I expect the same I've seen with the rest of their product I've mentioned above. The blade steel's tempered to a 59 +/- 1 HRC .. a 3/8 coil sping ..&.. the std buttonlock desgn.

I'm a fan of leverlocks. Mikov makes a sweet kit version available @ a reasonable cost. I've just sourced this generic design & am pleased with it .. again .. nice build for the $. Lock-up is solid .. no blade peak .. strong opening. The blade steel is good, i.e. takes an edge & holds it. Not as well as Queen's PH-D2 ..but.. as good as A.G. Russells 8Cr13MoV I have in his medium lockback barlow.
Anyway .. I digress.

Do enjoy your time here.
