    I saw this for sale on Alibaba today! Very interesting!
    I also saw a supposed ZT knife for only $78.

    What are they trying to sell it for? Opinels are already so cheap.

    2Cr13?! That's about one step up from dollar store aluminum foil.

    There are a lot of French knife makers besides Opinel that make similar knives but don't import to the states. However, if it's on Aliexpress then you know what you are getting and it ain't nothing but China's cheapest knockoffs and rejects.

    I believe 2cr is Cheese Wiz that's allowed to harden overnight and then painted silver.

    2cr13 ? Ain’t that made by folding silver tissue paper and coating it in Elmer’s Glue?
