I have the opportunity to buy one at a decent price. Are they any better than say a rough rider knife? Need opinions to act on if I buy it

Fit and Finish on them is great, probably better than RR. But for just a few bucks more, it just feels better carrying a USA made blade in your pocket and the blade steel will most likely be better and last longer.

i picked up one by mistake and i have to say i am impressed with the fit and finish for the price. i picked up a little rams horn mini trapper and while i can't quite bring myself to carry it i can't get rid of it either, and it came scary sharp. and yes i know it's ridiculous to not carry a knife simply because of country of origin but i can't help it.

I don't understand China or Germany whats the difference, they were never made in the US. My one kissing crane is a yellow canoe (china). F&F is outstanding, it is all hand fitted. Unbelivable for a $15 knife. The steel (on mine) also seems "harder" more like 440C or at least AUS8. It's a chinese made knife though so I don't know if they are all as well made.
