Only thing I get from the NRA is a self addressed postage paid envelope for the next dose of money they need. Even a Chinese knife would be a change

I don't know what this particular knife is like, but the "Made in China" (or Taiwan for that matter) stamp is no longer synonimous with bad quality, at least when it comes to knives.

Spyderco's Tenacious and Persistance are made in China, and they are great knives (and a lot of their new upscale models are made in Taiwan, like the Sages and Gayle Bradley). Cold Steel has a lot of their knives made in Taiwan and China, like the American Lawman and Recon 1. The Spartan that JD and Benning tested is made in Taiwan. There are loads of other examples. Buck slipjoints made in China are excellent, every bit as good as their US made ones.

I can understand not buying Chinese made knives for personal or political reasons, but if you purchase a product with a good company standing behind it quality will not be an issue.

I can't claim that China makes inferior products, because China makes ALL products. America used to be that way, back when we didn't owe our GDP to China for the next 3K years. I guess what I was driving at is the fact that a group can claim to be steadfastly representing my best interests while doing nothing of the sort as long as they advertise using a patriotic theme.
I was changing planes at Dulles at the same time GWB's inauguration was being conducted and the airport was full of commemorative items, none of them made in America. It was disheartening, and I could not stomach the thought of sending our avowed enemy money for a memento of a great day in American history.
Yes, my house is full of Chinese products, much of it made by slaves, prisoners and children.

Doc, PM me and I'll send it your way. I threw away the box that it came in, but it's pristine as it's never left my desk. I had to chuckle when I thought about the guy who set up the machine which etched "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". Skilled political prisoners can do some pretty nice work if their next meal depends on it.

True words spoken right there. Then, when he dies, he becomes the next organ donor on the list.
