Where is a good source to get a Mil-Tec one? Everyone seems to have a Mil-Tec but I cant seem to find one. A lot of sellers don’t say what make they are. Dont really care what country i have to buy from but prefer if i can easily order online and use paypal as it makes it so much easier, especially if its from a NON english speaking country.Thanks

Mark your profile for the country indicator and it will make it easier for some one who might want to deal with you. I have a couple of old GAK's I might part with. However I am in TEXAS.
I know there are more out there
Well today i got 2 NIB Mil-Tec GAKS from a German ebay seller. Words can not describe how disapointed i am. I knew they wouldn't be victorinox standard but these Mil-Tecs are extremely bad. They have TONNES of sildeplay in the blades and cork screw, so much its not funny.The blade is also horribly blunt. I dont know if there is 2 Mil-Tec's? Eg one made in China and one made in Germany?? I just cant believe how bad they are. I did notice the Mil-Tec logo is a little different to other Mil-Tec logos ive seen before.The box was glossy and grey with colour photo of the knife On the box it says 'Sturm Handels GmbH D-72108 Rottenburg' and on one side it says 'German pocket knife' and on the other side it says BW Taschenmesser. Art - Nr 15337000Now i have seen guys say on here that Mil-Tecs were pretty good quality. They must of been made somewhere different because these ones i have got are very bad and leave a bad taste in my mouth.
I had green pouches. One was un done at seam. might try weld it up again. The tools are really quite loose. Was it that UK site you got yours? iI will post tank stamps of mine to see how the log compares to yours.
I have one that was issued to the Croatian Military Police (VOJNA POLICIJA). The HV logo stands for Croatian Military. I got it in a trade some 12 years ago and it served me great as a camping knife. No blade play. The only stitching I ever needed was it's fault. Only has the Rostfrei stamp on the blade, no manufacturer info, and I couldn't get any either.(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
