Sparkyv, looking at it just now, I see no markings indicating any Nationality. It definately sharpened up nicely. Seems very high quality. LOVE it.
Rlee, a Buddy/Close friend is a Knife collector, also an FFL who used to own a Shooting range in Wilmington, NC. He is moving his shop, came across these and gifted them to me. I have bought a pretty good amount of Firearms from him over the years. The price was right for me.
I really like that top one. I have never heard of the IPAK brand so I did a search for it. It seems that the D2 steel comes from Japan, the knives are manufactured in England, and the sales, shipping, marketing, and warranty are in Florida. Since I am a knife lover, I am going to have to look at them a little closer.
I’ve gotten more interested in knives and flashlights this year since I can’t get guns and ammo. Just bought myself a new streamlight on cyber Monday and have a Lansky knife sharpening kit on my Christmas list.
I learned something. (Talk about potential for growth.) 😂
I wrongfully assumed that the D2 laser etched on the knife blade below the IPAK was the model of the knife, not the metal quality indicator. (I got them with no boxes, just wrapped in butcher paper in a padded mail envelope.)
My Buddy was packing up his gunshop to move to a new building and found stuff he had forgotten about, and did not want to move it all.
