swing guards.

Post by georgegroot » Sun Jun 30, 2019 7:52 pm

I've always wondered why swing guard switchblades haven't been mass produced in China, etc. like stilettos. Likewise, lever locks, although I do see some inexpensive ones here and there. The closest "cheap" swing guard I have found is a Korean made that I bought at a gun-knife show years ago for about 25 bucks. Thanks.

Don't give them any ideas, they're stealing enough of people's work already.

There was a rumor that there were some 9" AKC fakes out there, but I never saw one. They have made fake lever locks of all kinds. The Korean copies of the Japan Rizzys were 1980-90s copies and cheaply made....

There is a post somewhere here showing the fake AKC tang stamp but it quite a few years back. You can find fake AKC knives on DHGate.

At the car dealer we see alot of security companies bringing vehicles in as well as security guards coming in after work, always in there security gear and always open carry in there uniforms. Been awhile and can't remember the specifics on this and was curious.

Absolutely nothing. BarryTom is randomly posting in various threads, and those posts are usually off the wall - not at all relevant to the issue at hand. I am banning him for a week and PM'ing him to let him know. Ban will be permanent if there is no reasonable response.

I think he must be Jim Tom's inbred son or something.

This shit's just plain unforgivable; these companies have absolutely no ethics.

It's the way they make that money, just the way business is where there are no laws against copying others designs.

Only mentioned because the original poster asked about Chinese produced swingers.

BTW= I did see some clone Italian style swingers on DHgate the other day.
