I have a folding utility Ka-Bar that is made in China. If you go to Ka-Bars web site it shows where each knife is made. My fighting knife is made in USA.

I have that exact knife. I bought it this past spring for turkey season. Plenty servicable, and I used it exclusively to dress and clean my bird. It's nice and slender in the blade, so you don't have to worry about mangling meat, and it can be used for filleting fish as well.
My only complaint was that the sheath slides around on your belt a bit. I reached for it when I got back from the hunt, and freaked out as it had slid far over on my belt and I though I lost it out in the woods. Maybe a different pair of camo pants with more belt loops owuld keep it from roaming around as much.

For $12 more I'd get this US made Buck, this line is pretty much the gold standard for fixed blade hunters...been around a long time.

And actually I just bought this on sale for $19.99. Gerber made. Assembled in the U.S. And blade made in the U.S. Scales are the only thing imported. It's 420 HC steel, love the rubbery grip. Tough knife, comes in 3 models. I bought it for general utility/camp knife. Heck of a bargain. http://www.cabelas.com/product/Hunting/Knives-Tools/Field-Care%7C/pc/104791680/c/104740380/sc/104320080/Cabelas-Outfitter-Series8482-Knives-by-Gerber/1229720.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Fhunt ing-knives-tools-field-care%2Fcabelas%2F_%2FN-1100162%2B1000002949%2FNe-1000002949%3FWTz_l%3DSBC%253BMM%253Bcat104740380%2 6WTz_st%3DGuidedNav%26WTz_stype%3DGNU&WTz_l=SBC%3B MM%3Bcat104740380%3Bcat104320080

I have a similar model, longer and wider blade, from the 70's. My uncle gave it to my Dad, then my Dad gave it to me.

Let's not forget Case is still making good U.S. knives. http://www.amazon.com/Case-Cutlery-Leather-Hunter-Stainless/dp/B000M5GDZY

I suppose this would be the one I have, except with no blood groove, and without the black detailing on the bolster and pommel.
