    The Delica and Endura, to the best of my knowledge, have no copies.

    That's not to say there aren't Spyderco inspired knives in FRN like the Navy K633 but I've not seen anything that is clearly a...

    So you can carry something like a 27cm traditional Navaja, as long as it's concealed?

    What a nice city.

    If you want to keep cutting cardboard I suggest grabbing the ZDP-189 Delica. You'll want diamonds for sharpening but I can't see it going dull for a very very long time.

    Pretty much this. Knives, although important to us, are a tiny fraction of a massive economy in an equally massive country. The Chinese authorities simply don't have the time or interest in chasing...

    You're right. I was thinking that 440V was just 440C with some vanadium added, but going from the charts here they're very different steels.

    Your best insurance is buying from a reputable seller.

    If the seller is in China then you're probably not looking at an authentic knife.

    That's an interesting looking folder.

    Who makes it, and what's it like to use.

    EDIT: Sorry, Wildsteer WX. Still, what is it like to use?

    A 10mm thick tanto blade, where much of the blade is 10mm wide up close to the tip would be stronger than a 10mm FFG which has a definite taper to the point.

    Basically on eBay look for sellers with a lot of positive feedback, who stock a lot of knives, and are based in the USA.

    You're unlikely to go wrong with those guidelines.

    Well it looks like they're replicating the FRN now.

    It's a good thing I only buy from reputable dealers in the US or here in New Zealand.
