    Knives, Knives, Knives

    Got 3 knives to move on, all prices include shipping:

    Gerber Knife (Chinese copy) - $20
    The blade is still in as new condition, very sharp. The sheath has scuff marks all over it, as seen in the photo. Marks are only cosmetic and seen from the angle the picture is taken. Blade locks into the sheath nicely, with a positive click. I've stitched the sheath together with the white thread as i don't trust the snap locks on it. I'll leave the thread as is but will unpick with no issues as all and won't leave a trace of being there if you wanted to get rid of it. Handle is rubber with a very good grip. Grip itself is intact but you can see i've used it.

    Over all length 25cm, blade length 12cm.

    Second knife a Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival Knife - $20

    Is legit, not a copy. Knife is in used condition. Coating on the blade is showing wear. Rubber coating of the handle is perfectly intact, the plastic guard up towards the blade has some minor marks on it from putting it in and out of the sheath, there not that noticeable. I've never used the pummel but some of the coating around the edge is rubbed away a little from sitting on my belt. Sheath is perfectly functional, but looks used. The velcro from the top of the handle is worn but still works. The ferro rod has never been used but has a mark down the length of it possibly from putting it into the sheath? Diamond sharpener has never been used, imo its useless anyway.

    Knife is a good solid knife, i really like the way it balances in the hand, the grip is very positive on it as well. Be aware that the ferro rod needs to be secured to the sheath or it will knock out when its on your belt in the bush. I just ran electro tape around it and had no issues, but plenty of reviews of it online being lost. The whistle is ok, i had it on my pack for a bit but never really used it so left if in the draw after a few trips.

    Plenty of bad reviews for these online. Most of them are ridiculous, with them breaking from trying to baton mature kauri tree sized logs???? Or throwing them at trees?? Any way, is a nice knife with a very strong blade.

    Overall length 25cm, blade length 11.5cm
