Just a bump: Kershaw's new 2018 designs are in, and for a change, at least a third of them are manual folders instead of Speedsafe assisted.

On the other hand, CRKT is going deeper with larger knives (3.5" and above) and AOs. I like Matthew Learch's and Ken Steigerwalt's designs, but almost all the nice stuff from them in CRKT's lineup are AOs.

Why can't cutlery companies from anywhere in the world (even you, China) give us a suitable offering of manual folders with blade lengths < 3.3" that aren't also so fat and wide?

My ideal knife is one with a slimness similar to the Benchmade 940-1, but with the blade length chopped down to 3" - 3.2" and in softer 5cr13 steel so that it won't break the bank (about 30USD).

the mall ninjas want big and beefy.

I don't like the softer steels, tired of seeing the edge roll.

I did see 2 Kizer models that are interesting - one is Isham's Theta, the other is Swan's Matanzas.

Ken Steigerwalt's Ignitor isn't exactly what I'll consider a mall ninja's toy:



Looks slim and neat. But the 3.4" blade length is a little on the long side, and it would have been great if it were a manual folder, even though AOs are allowed here. That CRKT is still selling it after a few years is proof that it's quite a popular model.

There are many small bugs crawling on my blades. I wash them off with water but those bugs reappear a few days later.

What are things I can do?

where are you storing them? in wood/leather/paper/cloth boxes/wrappers/pouch? they are likely book lice or mould mites. You have to clean everything out, and sun it. as long as there is dampness and high humidity, they will thrive.

I see the bugs on furniture, in wooden boxes, old trinkets. Just clean the place up with a light vinegar solution. They will always be where food sources are, but at least you can keep them to a minimum.

After cleaning the blades/folders/storage/sheaths, store your blades outside the sheath in a dry box. That should keep them to a minimum.

Has anyone tried JOKR knife before? Looks like it's designed here in Singapore. Any thoughts on this particular knife?

I have a Kizer Cutlery Vanguard V4468A2 Ray Laconico Intrepid Flipper 3.625" VG10 Stonewashed Blade, OD Green G10 Handles. LNIB - I carried for a few days but found it too big for my use (I use a slipjoint normally).

Great flipping action. In blister pack etc.

It's USD86 on KC + shipping.

I'm asking for $spf only - cheap cheap.

Have had some experience handling 2 prior 3-4 years back. Take my words with a pinch of salt, but there weren't very many impressive things on his knife.

At the time, his flippers didn't flip smoothly. It was almost impossible to deploy based on pressing the flipper tab alone. From what I know, his prices are not cheap as well.

I emailed him multiple times a few years back, to ask for a slot on his books. 0 communication that the email was even received, zilch.

However, sometime last year, he informed me that my turn was up on his books and he asked if I still wanted the knife . If I'm going to pay thousands of dollars for a knife, I would definitely expect some form of communication from the maker.
