    After a new Folder

    As title, I'm looking at a new folding knife, had a couple or Kershaws [untill lost]and they were good, and I have had a Schrade hunting knife for years that untill I bought a svord, was my mainstay and still is a very good knife.
    I don't want the latest taticool piece, just a reliable folder, currently looking at Schrade or another Kershaw.
    Any opinions on these two as compared.
    Cheers.

    Yeah, Liking the Kershaws at the moment too. The Kershaw Junkyard Dog II is my go to folder. And a Kershaw Skyline when i don't want to scare the natives Can get them super sharp. Well built knives.

    Mercator?
    I also have a Buck Folder that keeps a fairly good edge and is a lot tighter in the action than my equivalent Gerber.

    Please excuse the hijack but didn't want to start a new thread for one question but can anyone tell me if these knives (Gerber Applegate) are legal to own in New Zealand?

    Governments have a propensity for banning things that "look evil" and as I couldn't find any on Trade Me, I thought I'd ask just to be sure.

    Re: After a new Folder

    I could be wrong but think there is some sort of ruling on having a cutting edge on both sides of the blade.

    Last time I heard of knives being illegal it was for:
    - Double edge knife blade
    - Push button that uses a spring to push the blade "straight out" from the handle, springs that assist to unfold the knife were fine.
