    If it's a Swiss Army Knife, it's made in Switzerland... simple...
    Only fake SAKs are made in China.
    Just look at the blade tang, if it's original, it should say either Victorinox or Wenger (or for older ones: Victoria, Elsener, Elinox, Hoffritz or Wengerinox).
    If it says just INOX, Stainless Steel, Rostfrei nothing or some other mark, it's definately a fake.

    you see and feel the bad quality first hand in such sak made in china. historically we can see that sak in different quality where also made in germany, east germany, france and other countries.

    For over 100 the real Swiss Army knives have only been made in Switzerland. Today, they are still only made in Ibach and Delemont in Switzerland, not anywhere else. Many other brands have outsourced some or all of their production, but Victorinox is keeping it in house.

    Yes, there are many counterfeit / imitation "Swiss Army Knives" made in China and they are very poor quality.:barf:

    I feel sorry for anyone who wastes their money on such poor quality knockoffs. I hope he didn't pay more than $1 for that knife.
