    My visits here are not at frequent as they used to be.

    Back in the days people here were claiming that Quartermaster lied about their knives being made in the US of A, and that they actually were made in China. A bold claim.

    How are things now in 2020?

    We're all still waiting on their three story knife museum to open. Of course, given that there's only a private residence at the address that their corporate information traces back to, I think we might be waiting a long, long time.

    A bold claim? How about it was and still is the truth. Lying Jared hasn't had a booth at #bladeshow, maybe next year?

    "A bold claim"? Are you attempting to infer that it's not true? QM are still trash, and they're still made in China. Of course, not many here admit to owning any of them these days. Also, speaking of "bold claims", what about QM's grandiose description of their five story CIA black site manufacturing facility with "state of the art" clean-room facilities and bio-metric security....and then Google Maps says "Nah, it's some old house out in a field". LOL

    The old house is just the entrance. The facility is underground.

    I mean, to be totally fair, it does seem like a pretty nice house. And, as a bonus, it seems to get pallets full of undisclosed items shipped to it from China on the regular!

    I mean, it could be for his other extremely legitimate business, Mad Blacksmith (that has an actual disclaimer about how he is not, per se, an actual blacksmith).

    Mad Blacksmith, really? That's almost as irritating as when Strider copy/pasted a description of titanium blades straight off of my old website. :p

    I want to see the blood test showing some pretty serious heavy metal concentrations before anyone starts calling themselves a "mad blacksmith!" :thumbsdown: :mad: Gotta have standards for these things.

    You mean "bunker". They just aren't going to install NSA grade security in a "facility". A bunker on the other hand...

    It's more Operator/Grey Man if you say stuff like "facility" instead of "bunker". It's the first thing they teach you.

    I can neither confirm nor deny whether they did or did not teach that as the second lesson.

    I've been hearing the negatives about these knives for quite some time but never bothered to look them up until tonight. Are these the same ones being carried by mainstream vendors? Like BladeHQ?

    They look like something a junior high stoner kid would draw up...
