I also know where to get Mercyco blackie collins A/O's for £10 in the UK I am waiting on My wasp arriving and am also thinking of maybe a supersteel leek or rainbow one and a gerber fast vollaton wouldnt mind a kershaw centofante either just because it is close to frank centophantes last collaboration on knife design before from what I hear his death earlier this year. If you shop around you will find the main sites for A/O's are well overpriced its possible from UK sites to get chives for only a little more than the wasp and cheaper than the uzi semi autos and dont miind the typos I got the hangover from hell lol damn parents and going out for pre christmas drinks

That Offset G10 looks like a hell of a good blade, if it wasn't discontinued I'd have to be saving for a while to buy that in the U.K.
I did manage to get a fairly well made copy of the Kershaw E.T. They were being marketed in medium and large by a seller on Amazon but are no longer available.

That's one half opened (or closed) the best feature is that there is no locking mechanism as such, the harder you grip the more it locks up.
The larger one is 8.75 inches long with a 3.75 inch blade. The medium one is 7 inches long with a 3.125 inch blade.
At least they didn't try to pass themselves off as Kershaws, they went under the name of S.R. Columbia - A ShuangRong Company.
The large one was £21 and the medium one was £17. Seeing as Kershaw had discontinued the E.T. by then and E.T.s were somewhere over $100 when they were in production I didn't feel bad about buying them.

It seems like I've just bought a CRKT Hammond Cruiser so that'll probably be it for me for a while unless I get tempted in any new year sales. ;)

I wouldn't :> I sold that one, it's way overpriced and a real b1tch to hone with it's duel flat and hollow grinds not to mention the recurve.
