Chinese "Knockoff" knives.

Post by Captain O » Fri Jun 14, 2019 5:49 pm

Has anyone purchased any of the inexpensive Chinese "knockoff" imitations of the Italian Automatics on DHGate? They state that they're 440C and other reputable steels. Others claim they are 5cr13 and 9cr18 steel (the latter being comparable to AUS8 and 440C steels). ::undecided:: ::shrug:: ::hmm::

Comments? Opinions?

I wouldn't trust dhgate unless I bought a Ganzo from them. I'm sure those aren't copy's.

Makes me think of a quote from Zig Ziglar: “it’s easier to explain price once than to apologize for quality forever.”
