The Hubertus saw is longer but because of the bottle opener its effective length is almost 1cm less. Also, the teeth are backwards instead of straight. The Hubertus knives are meant as hunting tools and the saw is a bone saw but it saws wood well enough.

PS the corkscrew (on mine) is a nail breaker.

PSPS Hubertus knives are handmade and their fit and finish is not perfect like e.g. GEC knives. I don´t mind though.

Thanks for the info!  :hatsoff:

China's production is not all rubbish, and the cost performance of this knife is also good :climber:

This is a great thread. I had no idea how many companies or countries have/are producing SAK-alikes. Thanks to all who have/are contributing.

What are those in your pics? Look like good knives; similar to Boker Tech Tool models (which are made in China, as are most Kershaw and other good knives).

Not multi purpose ones. Not any more. Unless you count the British Army Knife. You can still get some decent traditionals (and a few lemons too), but for the ones with scissors and other tools, you need to be hunting around for old stuff.

My grail knife has always been a good Sheffield made multipurpose knife with scissors. I've never seen the condition I want at the right price though.

This is a new product of sanrenmu knife in recent years. I used some single blade products. At that time, these products were very cheap, but the quality was very good. Some of them are still in use.Of course, it's a long way from Victorinox in any way,but it's not that kind of junk product after all, although I also admit that there are many kinds of products in China,It is optimistic that China is also changing this situation. Most enterprises and operators also realize the importance of product quality, and garbage products cannot survive in the Chinese market.As far as I know, sanrenmu knife are also sold in the United States,I also like to play with flashlight. I see many foreign netizens' EDCs have Chinese made flashlight brands,such as Olight, Fenix,Nitecore,JETBeam.......If what I said is not clear, please forgive my translation software :cheers:

I forgot to add to SAK-alikes the Buck X-Track models. Don't know if they are still made or not.

Roxon. Look at the single tools. Not at the overall design. You'll fin vic and wenger there. One model would be the roxon storm s801. Pics... when the lockdown will be over  :facepalm:

If possible post pics of brands mentioned. I've never heard of Roxon,

If only more people visited the review subforum. :pok:

Thanks for the info, but I found it on Google search two days ago.
I only read the SAK forum.

Thanks! I always see reference to them but never see them in practice (apart from gardening pen knives) so I assumed their time had passed. When were they big? 19th century?

No scissors, but everything a gentleman would need on horseback in the 19th C.

Nice! It even has scale tools, if I’m not mistaken.  8)

Hi, I'm a newbie here, first post.  I have a few that haven't been mentioned.  Richartz, Giessen & Forsthoff, both from Solingen. Use of the name Solingen on the tang is protected by law now, kind of like how sparkling wine can only be called "champagne" if it comes from a certain region.  I don't have access to it now, but I have at least one old East German knife that came from the factory that became Adler.  I can take some pics if it's of interest.

I'd give my left arm for a Sheffield

And this is a Giessen & Forsthoff that was given to me in Germany in the 80's.  G & F makes mostly barber tools as I understand it, but they also had a number of SAK - alike plastic scaled models too.

Thanks for the pics and info. More SAK-alikes I've never heard of. Guess they are not something to try to collect now.
