Cheap but surprisingly refined knives?

    Eafengrow is well known for copying the designs of other knife makers. To their credit, the quality is fairly decent. But those in the knife community who care about such things won't buy them anyway.

    I've recently discovered these Chinese OTF's on Amazon ranging from $35 - $40. They're double action. About 2x the play in the blade of a S&W M&P but IMHO a decent deal. Other manufacturers are OEM'ing these at up to $90 (with D2 steel instead of 440). I prefer the clip point (shown) but they also come in double-edged dagger, tanto and wharncliffe.

    Theft of intellectual property is still theft even if a gateway to better knives eventually.

    I've grown quite fond of Ka bar's Dozier designed folders. Very light, great blade shape, decent steel (AUS 8), back lock that is very positive, comfortable zytel scales, under $20. Mine actually gets carried the most of any of my knives - even more than my Benchmades. Mostly due to light weight and summertime shorts pocket comfortable carry.

    BOKER Magnum knives feature steel from either Spain or Taiwan, bone handles from Argentina, and assembly in China. They are keepers!

    I like the no 6 and no 8 opinels but my EDC fixed blade for work is the razor from a utility knife that I jammed in a wad of JB Weld so my opinion may be suspect.
