Not the place for politics, please. Take it elsewhere.
Just my opinion, but it isn't going to take a Herculean effort to reach Rough Ryder quality. Hopefully they can push each other to better quality through competition. That's always good for the consumer.
Like the look of the Culpepper, but not the steel. I am also not sure I appreciate the source of the name given the source of manufacture.
Understood, good Sir.
Sorry for the detour.
Fair enough. I thought 420HC edged it out but looking at the numbers I suspect you're correct. Or at least no worse for sure. Definitely will be HT dependent. Thanks for motivating me to double check!

Kershaw has made traditionals in the past. I might check these out.
If they're gonna start making traditional, they should start by reproducing the Kershaw Wild Turkey. I have one and it is a fantastic knife
Now you're talking. Those Kershaw pics look awful. They make the knives look like gas station specials. Seems like they could find a well-made prototype and a professional photographer for the catalog photos. Maybe they did ... scary thought.
Looks like an Al Mar
I am an unabashed KAI fan so I will be trying these out. I have been content with their import 8cr models, used their 3cr Shuffles before without issue so I can’t see why these would be a disappointment. No, they aren’t GECs but I know that going into it...either way, more traditionals means more fun!
I might try a Culpepper for $30 or whatever they actually sell for.
It is good to see someone else enter (or re-enter in this case) the slipjoint market.
I would be willing to at least see what they are about...for $25 why not. Maybe a good candidate for rehandle practice.
Jimping though? C'mon now. Who did they consult with?
