Ek het jou geantwoord. Ek kyk gou of ek vir jou een in PTA kan opspoor. Hou jou op hoogte. Gee met graagte die een maar die koerier koste is onnodig as ons dit kan vermy.

Got this one today for R210. It's the stainless No 9

The carbon steel is about R40 cheaper but rust.

Then I had a long talk with the owner, and he has shown me Spridercro @ R1700 and guess what? Made in China
The other models ranging from R2400 to R2800 still 100% origional
I asked him about Gerber and he took various out of the show case - most made in China but again the top models States....Same with CRKT and BUCK.
Man this guy is passionate about his blades and also offer a sharpening service but that I do myself.
My son was with me and we handled more knives today than ever before in our lives  :lol8:

Interesting to see that a USA made BUCK Bantam cost R550 in SA, usd 32 in Florida and only usd 17 in Minot North Dakota

Certain blade length and blade operation methods (out the front or auto flip) is banned in certain states in the US,Tom.
I believe they are taxed differently too.
Spyderco use to supply the military with the Spyderco Miltary knife. It had a 4 inch + blade. It got banned in certain states because of the blade length, which saw the birth of the Paramilitary 2, which had a shorter blade. Again some states banned the PM 2 blade length, which is why we have the PM 3 now.

We can agree on that for sure:
Some of the laws in some of the US states with regard to knives is very questionable.

Canada is even more full of kak. One of my Canuck ex-colleagues couldn't get me an assisted opening knife on his break so I had to make do with a standard one.
