Has anyone played with these? Look pretty nice. Thinking about getting one.
For some reason the link works sometimes. Here is the direct link to the HK knives:
WOW. This place doesn't get very many posts, does it? Been over 24 hours and still on the first page.
i had a boker a couple years ago. this thread makes me wonder what happened to it. also makes me wonder what happened to the boker magnum i had before i left down in december that i can't find. i loved that knife. stayed sharp and had a quick (illegal) automatic action.
my brother had a boker gemini police like this
I wouldn't say it was a quality knife.
the Kalashnikov knives suck. they're a bitch to open, because they're a pushbutton switchblade, but without the spring loading inside. basically, you push the button, but nothing happens. they have to do this to import them, i guess. it means that you have to have perfect "flipping" technique to get the blade out, or you have to use two hands, defeating the purpose of the pushbutton.
don't know about the rest of the boker knives. except the applegate fixed blades. those are some badass knives.
Yeah, I'm not sure if the only reason I like it cause it has HK stamped on the blade. I love me some HK.
Glock makes knives too - you can check them out on their website. Don't know much about them though.
I've never had a problem with a liner lock before and after owning the Gemini, I think it was just the knife itself. I bought it when I was pretty ignorant about knives, but after owning/handling other knives I've realized that the entire knife itself is crap. The pocket clip is complete junk and has no real tension to it, the lock was weak, and the grips themselves aren't that great and began to deform around notch which the pocket clip fit into, causing the clip to become loose and jiggle side to side. I wised up and bought a Kershaw Avalanche and haven't regretted it since.
And once you handle G10 you'll never want to touch Zytel again
Affirmative on that avalanche. my preferred daily utility knife.
