Thanks Nix, Rapidray For a little bonus another made in China, Enlan..nothing bad to say about this one either, at first i thought the tip up pocket clip would annoy me as i am not used to it but in reality its totally fine, i will carry it for a while and see how i get on with it, looking good so far though (Image removed from quote.)
My old Wenger farmers knife, Hunter pro and probably an Explorer for me Ron Peacent that's good to know, it certainly seems well built and it should be good enough for the jobs i don't particularly want my Sak to do, the Ganzo will be put in my collection and the Enlan will be a user Richartz-Solingen (Image removed from quote.)

peeps you're putting up some really nice blade for show! I have heard excellent things about Spartan Blades' fixed knives, and their coating seems to be as tough as their full tang construction Tell us more about your Spanish blades, Gio, being from Spain I am always interested in local blades and cutlery (Image removed from quote.)
Thanks! Big selection...

Martiini MBL looks heavier than it is at 182g so not that bad, the Hunter pro comes in at 162g and the Ctepx at 184, your 5.7 ouncer equates to around 161 so there's not really much in them, i too like a heavy knife but these are shelf queens from my collection, they will rarely get carried, sometimes i cant resist though, i'm sure people will understand I'm not mad keen on metal butts or bolsters so a planned future mod is to get rid of them, i think if i keep the same shape but in curly birch or Walnut it would look better..in my eyes anywaySterkh, MBL and Hunter pro, the three heavyweights nearest to hand (Image removed from quote.)
Thanks Ray, Butch With wooden handled knives its preferable to see them first, as its a natural product the wood varies a lot, the Hunter pro from others i have seen are consistently good, i don't think i have ever seen a bad one, i have a couple of Wenger and Vic woods that are a bit peely wally, compared to the beautiful colour and grain of others, quality is still excellent though The Birch on the MBL i have is nice enough but could be a whole lot nicer, compared to my Karesuando below it is a bit plain looking so i will be looking to sort that Excuse the recycled pic (Image removed from quote.)
