Posted this on the 4th but apparently it didn't take. Can anyone offer info on this Chinese made lockback? It's fairly well made, sturdy with a good edge and weighs 119 grams or a little over 4 ounces.

Looks like a nice knife to me. I have a few of them and they are well made. Not sure about the blade steel tho. I don't have one like you have tho.

The logo is weird. What looks like a backwards R turns into a lower case ls when turned 180 degrees. There is separation between the l and the s.

Trouble with things out of China is that they are very good at making short runs of just about anything and then ceasing. Identifying info is often obscure or even wrong - and this has been going on for centuries

A lot of the stuff they produce use tools and dies left over from other contracts. Very often the finish product looks the same as a higher value item but the quality may not be there

End of the day - if the knife works for you - GREAT!

I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!
