    They really carry smaller than the blade length would suggest.

    I'll post pics but I wont have time to even look at it until this weekend.

    P.S. all my knives are work knives, no safequeens for me.

    That's why I like my 710. It's a little big knife.

    Ghetto-waved Onslaught, just need to get a slightly bigger zip tie and some polish.

    Definitely, but the Kulgera is considerably more svelte in the pocket, albeit a less rugged blade. Great slicer though.

    I've zip tied several of my knives and I always end up cutting it off. It does work but I hate the way it looks.

    I got an order update from the company that I ordered from. I was excited until I opened it and saw that it was just a second order confirmation.:crying: Why they reconfirm the order again in 2 weeks? I don't know.

    I found me a 0560 on the forums today for not too bad of a screwing. Still $50 over street price, but I want to try it out. I think I'll still keep the 0561 on pre order and just have both when it comes in. The 0560 should be here this week sometime.:supergrin:

    The Chinese make some nice copies of expensive knifes.
    Striders, Hinderers, Pohl Force, Carrillos, Chris Reeve, Crusader Forge,
    etc. In some cases, they are better, dollar for dollar.
    The Chinese Hinderer pictured is half the price of a ZT 0560 (1/4 the cost of a XM18) and a better knife, and I've owned a 0560. The Strider copies are higher quality than the original too. Food for thought...

    I have serious doubts about that claim and I for one would never own a knock off. Just not my style. To each their own.

    I appreciate your opinion. Unlike other forums, we can state
    facts here, and not be a bought and paid for advertisement
    for the big wigs in the knife industry. I will never spend a
    week's pay for an inferior knife when I can get one at 20%
    of the cost and better workmanship...

    I can understand where you are coming from about the week's pay and all, But I think if I wanted a high quality knife for not a lot of money I'd get one that wasn't a complete counterfeit of someone else's work. There are a lot of quality knives in the $100-$200 range. I think it really sucks that there are fakes like this on the market. If buying used you have to really watch out for these things. The Chinese are pretty good at copying CRKs as well. I understand that they are well made knives, but why cant they just come up with their own design. These knives are made to dupe people.

    Hinderer's do go for insanely high (see inflated) prices and probably aren't worth it dollar for dollar, but people buy them for pride of ownership. I also believe that if you are LE/Fire/EMS/MIL you can buy them from Rick at MSRP(~$400). I'd be willing to bet that 9/10 of Hinderer owners don't use their knives at all because they want the to hold their value. I'd like to have one some day but believe me when I get one I will use the snot out of it.

    Seems counterfeiting is affecting EKI enough to post about it.

    Yeah people are buying counterfeits and then sending them in for warranty work because they suck, only to have Emerson Tell them that the reason they suck is because they are fake.

    Got my 0560! I'm going to put a few spyderco's back in their boxes and sell the rest. This knife is amazing.

    It was a rocky relationship at first but I just keep liking mine more and more as I carry it day to day.
