They look kewl, but no way a good sword can be made for $35.

Now if Cold Steel made one and offered it, I would be tempted.

I watched part of a video review and when he to to the part about the loose hilt and pommel I stopped watching.

I can email Budk and see if they would be interested in charging $200 for the sword instead if that helps? ;)

Here is the other one I play pretend samurai with. It’s pretty freaking fun and durable. Still inexpensive though. So probably a no for you!

I'm just old skool I guess. Nothing fancy, blade easy to sharpen, a good enough grip if I needed to stick it in something. Heavy enough to use as a light hammer. I can draw it and have the blade open faster than I can a gun. I had too.

The one I've had for 25 years or so, and a new one I picked up some years ago in case I lost my first one.

Depends. At work my knife is in constant use skinning wire, cutting rope or even cutting bags with rock or other things that dull even the best steel quickly. I really abuse and loose work knives.
For this I use a Milwaukee skinning knife and a Corona yard tool sharpener to quickly put a working edge on it. Away from work its a Benchmade Autocrat or Benchmade Freek. View attachment 701767
I carry a blade much like the one in the picture. Forward spring and withdrawal. Love it.

Now that I am home most of the time, when I am working outside, I am often opting to carry this:

It is lightweight, and useful. I have purposely abused it, including batoning it and twisting it when it was embedded in wood, to see how robust it is. The side play loosened up after that, but it remained locked open.

Inexpensive, light and so far robust - works for me, even though some people claimed it would fall apart and shatter because it was made in China. :s0092:

Every new apprentice I get. The first two things I ask are. Do you have a flash light? Most pull out a phone. Nope fail. Then do you have a knife? Not one yet in 15 years, has One been produced when asked. Every one of the apprentices that have worked with me carry a good quality blade. Not a box cutter but solid knives. And reliable flash light. Funny to see those two things stand out now.

I used to always carry a small, single blade locking knife. I had many different ones, usually less than 2" folded. Something that was super easy to carry.
Then a couple of years ago I won this Kershaw automatic at a 4x4 rally. I've carried it every day since then. My only complaint was the screws for the pocket clip would loosen over time. A dab of locktite on each stopped that. Kershaw closed.jpg Kershaw open.jpg
