I also recently bought a Columbia Jinlang Ao2 Sheathe knife. But i can't seem to find any information on it. Any help on finding out about this knife would be much appreciated. I picked it up for $20 at a pawn shop in near perfect condition. not even a fingerprint on the blade. and very sharp.
They are hard to find info on . They are made for columbia's outdoor line I don't find any collectors info on the net either but I guarantee if a collector finds one he owns one they are very impressive blades . I have in the hundrend of knives but I can tell you if I pick one knife to carry on a hunt or a survival situation this is it . I am very happy I found mine . This is the same columbia that makes ski wear and heavy coats by the way .
And you're right, not much info on them other then those for sale. Nice looking knives. Can't speak as to the quality or anything else other then looks based on a picture as I've never heard or or seen or handled one. Will look forward to Romey's input???

Now now friends I wont critique someone elses purchase other then Cold Steels outright lies and deceptions in their advertising. I dont know a thing about that particular model.
I have used Columbia knives and 7$ seems about right. Jinlang company I beleive is Columbia original venture outside Oregon into chinese production I think.
Location: Colorado, with all the pot smoking libtards -_-
JinLang sounds like a Chinese manufacturer. Y'all probably paid about the right price for them if they are Chinese. The Chinese do have a few good steels that they use but they don't have the necessary equipment or experience to properly heat treat the steels or to be able to have good quality assurance. I could be wrong about them being made in China, but if they were, then they are not worth $175. I would use it till it breaks
