Lol... after my friend saw my izula, he bought it on the spot! The izula is really a good knife, and it sharpens much easier than i thought =)

The advantage of high carbon steel haha. Much easier to sharpen compared to stainless steel. But the even if the knife is coated or painted, the edge will still rust. So its abit more tedious..

A good soak with lemon, vinegar or some mustard and it will develop a nice patina and it will not rust.. Did it on a a2 bravo and the oxidation is protecting it even it humid singapore. As long as you do not put it to storage wet and with rust present, a little rust during use never affects the blade functionally.

Actually rust on the edge nt really a big deal since i can get rid of it by sharpening =)
D2 is inbetween high carbon steel and stainless steel. Downside is it is quite brittle, so don't give it high impact! That knife looks nicer =)

Precisely, it looks dam nice and thus very tempting to get it. Plus this blade is discontinued from Pohl Force manufacturer. So it will be a good blade to keep.

Only doubt I have is the trustworthiness of the website and also price of the blade not cheap leh...for a dam small knife.

Go to exduct.com.

Buy either the SRM blades or the Bee & Enlan blades. Cheap but good.
If you misuse it or lose it beh sim tia.

ESEE says they are catching up on the backorders.. if just the izula, can get it from KSF cheap shipping but list price is just a few pops more..

Hi Vixx. Thanks for the info again. I ordered the Izula Black, overall is still cheaper due to shipping. Hope this website is reliable cos I already paid for it.

I decided not to get the Pohl Force cos it is too expensive for me.
I get the Izula plus 2 more blades from Exduct, I pay about half the price I need to if I buy the Pohl Force.
Don't worry, KSF is very reliable.. wendy and derrick are nice people on the BRKT forums and derrick is a pastor.. so he definitely won't cheat you. I had bought from them many times.. their points system also tempt me to buy more knives again~

They are quite fast man. Last night I ordered and this morning I got the email from them that giving me the tracking number. That means they have already shipped out. Rather prompt in replying my mail too. But they blur lah. Gave me 2 different tracking number on 2 different mails.
Clarified with them the correct one. Hope to get my Izula soon.

Thanks for the recommendation Viix. Think the savings in shipping makes the whole blade alot cheaper.
The system always send 2 shipment tracking.. I think it's cos they use the USPS postage label generator and their system will send a tracking once they generate the postage. The second one is the one you track when they post it and scan the receipt tracking into the system. For me I just input both into the USPS tracking app in the iphone cos sometimes other stores will separate the shipment into 2 package to save cost.
