I got this recently. Don't know if its good or bad but it sure is pretty.



Victorinox does not make bad knives Kelevra - as can be seen with your pic. I like it more than any other Victorinox

Baie mooi  :thumleft:

Ek het mos nou aspris sonder messe en Learherman gekom met die oog om dit weer hier goedkoop te koop.
Net my 1 Opinel No9 saamgebring wat ek solank gebruik.
Intussen het ek klaar n paar baie mooi messe so vinnig kon sien toe ons gaan werk boots koop.
Nogal n baie mooi Smith & Wesson mes gister gesien, ek wonder nogal oor die kwaliteit want dit is nie duur nie - net so oor die 20 usd.

Guys, maybe we should start a ‘see this buy’ thread? Basically pointing others to good value for money knives.  Those great finds. Typically on special or just a great buy for the money ito price vs quality/steel/etc?  Please also mention why its a good buy.... eg craftsmanship or the type of steel is only found in high end blades, etc..

I fully agree - I do from time to time, want to sell a knife, to make space for something new. We can then offer it on this new suggested thread too.
I will add the thread as soon as I stop. Driving to Pta at the moment.
Hein - I also thought HB is a SA brand.

Designed and owned from SA but made in China? 

Waar gaan jy heen in Pta en hoe lank bly jy?

Ons kan eintlik die huidige wish list thread gebruik, maar besluit jy...

Honey Badger was the idea of the one local distributor of other knife products.
From a Chinese factory they were using.

The Chinese will sell them all over the world now, nothing is copyright.

I lashed out and bought one. It says it's light so hopefully my rods won't drop to my ankles when I swagger/stagger around town.

I've buckled and created a profile on The Knife Guy. @Hardy as the creator of this thread I'm holding you fully responsible! My hopefully first of a few is on order. The Honeybadger Wharncleaver it is.
