There is also a small G10 and Carbon insert on the handle, ... a real gem!

    Conclusions
    Three fantastic knives !!! These Ruike are really well made.
    I like them a lot not only from the aesthetic point of view but above all for the construction quality and the materials used. There is no type of "play" between the fixed and mobile mechanical parts.

    Here is a brief summary with some personal considerations:
    Hussar M121-TZ: light and very handy, sharp as a razor, it holds well in the hand. It has the Beta Plus auxiliary blade lock in addition to the classic frame lock. The flip opening is very very smooth. Beautiful clip of electric blue color.

    P875-SZ: blade slightly wider than the Hussar but with the same cutting capacity. The knife comes very sharp. The carbon insert on the cheek and the beautiful design on the handle are the icing on the cake and give an extra touch of class to this model. The P875-SZ also features the "Beta Plus" blade locking system in addition to the Frame Lock

    P881-W: Knife a bit heavier than the other two. Abundant thicknesses but, despite this, fairly low weight. Ergonomic G10 handle, with a particular shape that allows a firm and safe reverse grip. The tactical tail ring can be used, for example, as a glassbreaker and in emergency situations. The blade lock is entrusted only to the Liner Lock.

    Given the impossibility of leaving the house, I could not test the knives in the field as I usually do.
    So you are wondering if they cut ... well, I guarantee you that they are razor sharp, especially the Hussar M121-TZ and the P875-SZ.

    For now I can only say that I am pleasantly impressed by these three models.




    Thanks for reading !!! XD

    Thanks for the review and amzing photos! I only own the poorman's version of the Hussar with G10 scales, but I was really impressed by the overall fit&finish and the really cheap price. It's actually one of my favorite knives as of late with its unique bladeshape/grind and smooth opening action. Now that I see that gorgeous P875 I'm sure my Hussar won't be alone much longer...gotta check prices real quick
