    I might be inclined to try a couple of these designs if they were produced in the US with good steel. Ruger can keep their made in China alphabet steel for now though.

      I support made in the USA when i can. That said China has been turning out some very nice knives for ridiculous low prices.

      • SamHill says:

        Yes, they sure have but it has been made possible by so many years of reverse engineering our good US products and a booming fake/clone market. It became so profitable that now a few companies are making their own new designs with good materials like titanium and CPM S35VN.

        No doubt some of those boutique china companies are putting out some nice looking stuff. Unless I see one that I absolutely can’t live with out (haven’t yet) I’ll try to stick with Chris Reeve, Hinderer, Strider, Emerson, RMJ, Winkler and US made Spydercos ETC. Combined, those guys and a few others leave us a great selection, and more makers are up and coming all the time.

    I prefer U.S. made, however, Taiwan and,yes,even China have been turning out some good designs FOR Us based companies,like Spyderco, Kershaw (KAI ) and even Sanrenmu and Ganzo have some great designs at reasonable prices.

    I own and love my Emerson knives, but, my Taiwan Spyderco’s,and China made Kershaw’s are great back up knives for when I dont want to beat up my high dollar knives.

    That being said, This Ruger design doesn’t float MY boat,and, reference back to what I said about SOG’s knives in that post (I HATE branding all over a product, it doesn’t have to be such a gaudily-designed logo,so large on the handle.Besides unattractive, it cant be comfortable) and branding so large and it’s placement.
    What I would love,love,LOVE, to see are companies offering “Wharncliff” (or “Warncliff”…however you choose to spell it) blade knives on a regular basis, and not just as a one year ‘specialty’ knife, or limited production run of a high dollar (think “Hinderer”) knife.
    The Wharncliff blade shape is my personal favorite for self defense,and it also performs well as a EDC blade, with a needle point (I know the arguments, but, it is a knife, not a pry-bar),and full flat edge blade….if your unfamiliar, think of a razor knife, or something along the lines of a carpet or tradesmans type knife,you know, the kind with the removable razor blade inserts.
    I can list on one hand, with fingers left over the Wharncliff designed knives out there-fewer still, those who make folders.
