My last two ...
One alloy 535 and one plastic one ..
The plastic failed at 200 slices ( was expected ) .. Reground on the wet stone grinder ( 80 grit wheel ) and the factory bevel was Rubbish .

Alloy Clone ... Sorry folks , I like these .. This be my 2nd one .. Cos !
So bushcrafty . The spine is just factory Crisp and scrapes wood so well . The scrapped wood is so thin and nice ! Just a little bit of ferro and it lights up right away !
I don't like the branding , I just wish they would brand them with their own name / logo .. ( AnusFire 535 ? ) Id buy one .
Anyways , amazingly bushcrafty . The edge on this one failed at 400 slices , also rubbish when reground .
I wont bother retesting the alloy , it did well enough + just so bushcrafty ( I really like bushcrafty folders ) .
But the plastic one will get another go at the rope @ 80 grit regrind ( Re Edged ) .

One can argue this N that , but I would not buy a Plastic Original . If they were reasonably priced , sure ! But ................................................... Never mind !
My excuse is simply that there was a sale and my hand slipped .
