    Hello Everyone
    I was just wondering if anyone here has ever played around with one of the Walther brand P99 Tactical fixed blade knives. I know it is probably made in Taiwan somewhere, but for the price it seems like a good knife. Anyway just curious about this one, it seems pretty good, but I just want to hear from some of the more experienced veterans out there.

    Thanks

    I've seen the P99 fixed blade.



    The quality is not bad, especially for the price. It's an inexpensive alternative to the more expensive Boker Applegate. It may not look exactly like the Applegate, but it's resemblance is enough for me to consider it a cheap knockoff.

    Thanks for the info

    I thought it did indeed look like the Applegate, but like you said it seems really sweet for its price. I have not heard much about Walther brand knives but when I saw this one I decided to take a peep at it. Anyway thanks again for your info and now I am thinking about getting myself the real Applegate knife.

    I know the writing on the blade looks bad, but I do like the idea of serrations on the back of the blade leaving the main edge plain.

    The big problem with these clones is the shortcuts these companies take in their choice of steel and the heat treatment. They may be serviceable or they may be junk, and the only way to tell is to try to depend on one and have it fail.

    That's why I try to stay with the "authorized" cheapies, like a Buck/Strider instead of a Strider AR, or a Swamp Rat instead of a Busse.

    Thanks Esav

    I must say though I think the Walther knife looks better than the Applegate, but looks dont mean much on a knife that a guy would need to rely on. Thanks for your reply.
