Call me skeptical. I don't have one in hand so I am taking my own thoughts with a grain of salt but I have questions for those with the knife in hand. 1. Anyone feel like this is definitely USA made top to bottom? I mean can anyone tell that for sure Xxxx company made these? If Bear or Utica made t 2. Is it any better than a the popular Chinese brands that sell for 1/3 to 1/2 these? How so? I have an Imperial Shrade import that looks an awful lot like these. Based on the only response from the seller of "I don't know who makes them" I am assuming they are import parts, or just straight imports until I know otherwise. I wonder if anyone would think less of the knife at that price if it turns out they are not exactly American made.
