Quality. Service. Price. The three key principles of QSP Knives, a fairly new brand in the knife manufacturing market but one that is making a hell of an impact.
Crafted in YangJiang, China’s Capital of Knives & Scissors, QSP launched in 2017 with a range of high-quality knives at highly competitive prices. From the Penguin to the Falcon, each of their blades are named after a well-known animal.
So, if you’re seeking a premium Chinese knife at an affordable price, look no further! QSP has something to meet your needs.
Do not let the affordable price point fool you, the QSP Parrot Jade is a quality, carbon steel knife and can serve as a great starter tool with very little compromise.
Perfect for everyday carry and a range of DIY activities, the Parrot comes equipped with a G10 handle in jade coloured G10and has one of the smoothest opening systems, thanks to its solid liner lock, dual thumb stud and copper washer. This knife is easily competing on a level with products five times its price. A steal if there ever was one.
At a more high-end spec comes the QSP Falcon, a 7.4cm stainless steel blade with satin finish, making this a UK-friendly carry option.
The handle is an elegant sculpted, midnight black, composed of a carbon fibre blade with a satin finish and a titanium-forged handle. The inlays are sculpted carbon fibre with two Titanium bolsters, providing a satisfying and reassuring grip.
The price point of this absolute gem of a tool is matched by its intricate design. Adding to this, it also comes with a well-crafted, leather belt pouch making this an ideal gift or upgrade. It’s the perfect companion for any adventure!
The QSP Penguin has become one of the most popular knives in this fledgling brand’s repertoire and has received an upgrade with the introduction of the Shredded Carbon G10 Black Blade.
In addition to the D2 Steel black blade, the handle has also received an understated overhaul with a striking new design available in both blue and red. The emphasis on quality doesn’t stop there. The Penguin alsofeatures a sheepsfoot shape, dual thumb stud, stainless pocket clip and lanyard hole.
Sharp and sleek, the Penguin is definitely one of the sleekest-looking blades on the market, with its perfectly centred blade and lean design.
If you’re looking for a tough working knife, then the QSP Copperhead is the one for you!
Available with either a satin blade, or a partially black blade, the knife itself is sharp stainless steel, whilst the handle is created with G10, ensuring the durability and strength of the knife. So, whether you’re using the knife for cutting wood or cleaning fish hooks, this is without a doubt one of the most reliable tools available.
Now here’s a blade that will make you want to work. The QSP Worker Snakewood is a solid utility knife that’s been crafted using stainless steel for the blade itself.
