I recently liked a knife made by Quartermaster (or made by the Chinese) discussed it and took a lot of flack. So I sent QTRMSTR a note directly asking about the allegations. I had to email as they have not phone number. Here is my message to them. "I purchased a Mr. Roper Finale. I have seen online all over the place that it is not made in USA as stated but that it is made or partially made in china. Also that the blade may not be s35vn but a soft 440c. Can you please quail my concerns. If there is no reply I will consider this an affirmative that the allegations are true. Thanks" I did not address stolen designs as I felt I most likely would not get anywhere. They sent a response in about 12 hours. Here it is: "Happy Independence Day! As it states multiple times on our website: all of our products are Made in the USA. If you've seen other information, it's forum nonsense. We're an established company and we've been making products for NRA, Sig Sauer, etc for 5 years. You can view multiple videos and photographs of our facilities on our Instagram feed if you wish. @qtrmstr_backstage. This will give you first hand looks at our work in progress. Further, we offer an unconditional lifetime warranty on all of our products-- they're inspected and repaired right here in Hill Country, so if you should have any issues; we back them up completely. Thanks for taking the time to write & for your support of our brand. Please enjoy your new knife." Now my question is does anyone have proof that this statement from them is false? If they did at one time lie about production are they still lying? Also, has anyone been to the factory and seen the knives being produced?
