Re: US demo knife.

I have just received the Marbles US utility knife in the post and although it's made in China, I have to say I'm impressed with the quality, Marbles have obviously ensured that the QC is good and after all it was designed in the USA. For virtually no 💰 it's a darn good little camp knife ..... :D

US demo knife.

I have just received from Poland a German copy of the Camillus US pocket knife, I can't get a genuine one over here so I ordered a very cheap Mil-Tec copy.
Do any of you ex military guys still have yours? What do you think of them, they seem pretty basic but useful little tools for EDC.
