From knifecenter, its 84.95. So far all of my back locks are mid handle. Will it be harder to close one handed if the lock is so far back on the handle? Accidental release of the lock?
From my experience the knife looks like a decent one hand opener but closing it one handed will be a challenge and do remember all backlocks no matter if they are placed mid handle or at the rear has a closing bias unlike liner locks and frame locks which mean during closing it has a tendency to snap shut at a certain point.

wow been quite a while since being in this thread.. haven't been using much of my knives.. looks like many nice knives in here!

I couldn't resist and bought a cheapo scadi grind mora 2000 and mora 511!~
Anyone knows where I can find some sharpening stones locally besides razorsharp?

And has the guy with the cat avatar got his nice highly reviewed stones yet? Was wondering how they'd perform~

Dude, the spydie stretch rocks! And it wont be your last one, welcome to the addiction and a perpectually empty wallet
I'm not an expert on knife steels, but from what I've gathered suffing the forums, ZDP189 is a high carbon steel, very good edge retention. Being high carbon steel it will rust on you if no care is taken. Just apply a thin coat of protective oil over the blade should do it.

Been trying to get my hands on one of those smurf manix2 but seems that I'm out of luck, any of you guys manage to score one?

Managed to get 2 of the blue Manix... 2 green ones are on the way. Brings my tally to 7; would be 8 but I sold a mini version few months back. Total is 2 blue Manix II, 2 green Manix II, 2 carbon fibre Manix II and 1 green Manix I (backlock). For those getting the Manix II, the lock is very difficult to disengage, just so you'll know. The backlock on the Manix I is so much easier.

What will you be stocking? I think SOG stuff would be great... Cold steel is pretty decent too and it's pretty easy to get dealership from them.

511 pants seem to fade quite fast le

Anyway the High Desert pants we currently have thinner, cooler, more comfortable

Cheaper too

very happy with my sog seal pup elite, got it for s$110.
hi bro sooqing,

I'm also interested in the SOG Seal Pup elite, can share where u got it from?


any bros can share how to buy knife online from Amazon and ship to Singapore?

I have checked with these 3 providers:
comgateway
borderlink
vpost

but all of them said they don't ship knife to Singapore because it's inside their prohibited items list .


I plan to get SOG Seal Pup elite and Sypderco Delica from Amazon, but not sure now how to bring them here to Singapore..., using fedex / dhl will be expensive?

thanks.
