Need some help on a knife.
« on: January 06, 2019, 09:06:14 PM »
I found a knife for sale that looks interesting but I can't find anything on it on google.
So my question is, does anyone know who the manufacturer is or the model?

Screenshot of the knife and the logo on the blade.

Thanks guys!

This is just uneducated guessing, but I'd suspect it's a budget copy of the well known USMC Kabar,

based on the logo, I searched for "Lynx Knives", but didn't come up with much useful.

The black finish looks pretty sus and would likely rub off with minimal use.

If the price is right, It'd probably work as well as any other budget knife as a beater or tackle/tool box, or gift to a teenager who's into this sort of thing.

I imagine you'll spend more time sharpening it and straightening it and fiddling with the handle to stop it coming loose/rattling than you can really be bothered with.

Thanks for the reply. My googlefu came up with nothing either and the listing doesn't really say anything about the knife.
The price is about 8 $, so I was just wondering if it was a case of the seller not knowing the knife is actually decent or if it really is just crap.
But then again it is cheap enough to maybe go for it just to find out for sure? :dunno:

At first i thought it was a Fox knife but that is not their logo.
So I would guess a cheap clone.

I will have to agree, this looks very much like a cheap (as in low quality) product

It has the usual telltales like:

- Black finish on it looks painted and not coated, and even the paint finish looks cheap too.

- Logo on it looks like a copy of an existing company’s logo with a nonsense name like “knives”....I wouldn’t be surprised if there were any nonsensical or out of place “quality approval” stamps on it too.

Usually these are designed to fool people into thinking they are products from a legit company, when in reality they could have been made by anyone anywhere.

The holster even looks cheaply made too

Kind regards,
