    To be fair the only Chinese made Benchmades are in the Hk line. If you buy a Benchmade they are 100% made here in Oregon. They are even trying to move from M390 to 20CV because Bohler is in Austria and Crucible is here and they want 100% USA made knives.

    Where are you getting this info? Buck still makes certain models in the US as does Benchmade and Spyderco (Golden Co, Earth,,,)
    Why would Buck be giving tours in their Idaho Factory?

    Minus the two HK Axis models. Both of those are U.S.A made.

    As far as the OP's original concern, even the employees of Benchmade pull down the axis bar and flick it out. I have done so for years and never noticed anything. Even if it did accelerate wear, Benchmade would fix it if it broke.

    A shame that a legitimate question about flipping and lock wear has degenerated into yet another round of political posturing.
    Tired of it...

    The Axis lock is as bullet-proof as any mechanism can be, IMHO. Brilliant design, simple, sturdy, reliable; I figure mine will outlast me. So far I have a 710, Mini-Rukus, a couple of Grippies.

    Yup. and the Ganzo knock off has no support what-so-ever. Support integrity.

    Suggest using search feature...more importantly, chinese made does not mean it is inferior in any way!

    The designations for steel 13 and 14mov are chinese steels. :) also. The only major name brand manufacturers using 440c (an extremely solid steel) are being made in CHINA lmao

    Search feature on this forum shows anyone the truth.



    What I said was simple, all major manufacturers use chinese labor in some form, and they do.

    Ganzo isnt a knockoff, yes they are using an axis LIKE feature -

    But no, they are their own company.

    And to the OP, the locks will work fine.

    So when you said that all buck knives are made in China you lied. Got it. Just wanted to confirm your dishonesty.

    And look! there it is! This isn't disneyland. When you say stuff, we can fact check it. You can't live in a fantasy land here.

    An Axis like feature? Is that what thieves are calling stealing now days? "I'm just taking your money like features". Just changing the words makes it okay. Brilliant!
