Knives and Gear to get during the AliExpress Anniversary Sale!

Well, it's that time of the year again and AliExpress are having a 7th anniversary sale.
I'd like to tell about and show you some of my knife and gear picks for this year (that are on sale during this period).

First of all there is a great sale on the Vespa Ripper.
One of the first original premium OTF designs out of China and I'm really excited to get one of these.
It features aluminum body, M390 blade, carbon fiber and tritium inserts and a ti pocket clip.
I'll be picking one of these as well to try out and review.
Also available at 
DHGate's Vespa Store.




Next up we have the Covenant Balisong.
This is a premium bali (butterfly knife) made from titanium with CF inserts, bearings, S35VN steel and a ti pocket clip.
One of the best Chinese balisongs out there, at least design and quality wise.
Competitive option: Bradley Kimura (crazy sale now at BladeHQ ($109)).




As for budget blades - we've got a comeback from Enlan Blades.
These knives were really popular a few years ago and now are again available for sale.
Don't expect really high quality or fit&finish like we got used to by Sanrenmu and Ganzo latest models, but some of the models are definitely interesting and unique so it's a good opportunity for a vintage pickup.
They even sell the key for that annoying Enlan tri wing pivot screw now.
Also available here (faster US Shipping):
Enlan Knives on Amazon.



Other than that I could recommend picking up Ganzo Firebird FH21 and Ganzo FH31 models as they are now proven to be great value knives with high quality levels and made from real D2 steel.

As for other  noticeable gear I intend to pick up the Xiaomi AirDots true wireless earbuds and the SJCam SJ8 Pro action camera as well as other smaller items for household and gifts to family members.

Also check out the knives I recommended in my previous AliExpress sale posts:

Official Sanrenmu Store on AliExpress:
They have great selection of (mostly newer) knife models from one of the leading budget knife manufacturers in China.
The same factory also produces knives for several American brands (Spyderco, Kershaw), and also RUIKE, Real Steel, Boker+ and many others, so the quality levels of their products are amazing for the price.
They also have many products for sale in this sale, ship the products fast and have excellent customer service. 

Other Sanrenmu models are also available at Gearbest.



Another store that I recommend to check out on AliExpress is the 
Tangram Knives Brand.

The budget subsidiary of Kizer Knives have followed their parent company and now also present their knives on the Chinese platform with lower prices and worldwide free shipping on most of their products.
They primarily make knives out of 440 Acuto steel from Japan, polimer handles (also aluminum) and the same awesome quality we already got accustomed to from Kizer's Vanguard series.
BTW - don't forget about the parent - 
 Kizer AliExpress Store, awesome prices and excellent service as well, plus some new models as well.




I'd also like to put a spotlight on one model that is sold at AliExpress - the relatively new and loved Ganzo FH11.
Now they have released an updated version with a reversible clip, so you could carry it on the left side as well, so managed to make it even better.
Definitely check it out, great low prices on it during this sale.



Other great offerings come from the TwoSun brand
These have become very popular lately, partly due to their newer futuristic (original) designs by Night Morning Design and Vitesse Design and partly due to the manufacturing quality, fit and finish.
TwoSun Knives are also available on Amazon.


And of course the Kevin John Venom models are also sold with significant discounts during this period.
2 new models are now available - the Harpoon (with unique pivot tightening solution) and the Bone Doctor.


Happy shopping!
