15 cents approximately per yuan, plus the cost of living in China is very low.
In 2020, the highest minimum hourly wages in China were to be found in Beijing, Shanghai, and Tianjin municipalities with 24, 22, and 20.8 yuan respectively, whereas employees in Qinghai and Yunnan provinces who received a minimum wage were paid the least – between 13 and 15.2 yuan per hour.Aug 31, 2020
According to the factory rep who sold it to me, I have the first White River Sendero Classic with a hand-rubbed satin finish. It hides scratches reasonably well, and it looks good. After a year and a half, you can tell that it's a working knife, if the light hits it right, but not at a quick glance. No regrets, I prefer a satin finish over a bead-blast, tho either is easy enough to touch up, if needed.
