Mora of Sweden makes my knife. It has a stainless steel blade, rubber coated grip and a light weight
of about only 300grams with the sheath. And with very resonable price of about $12-17, it is my choice of a field knife.

China makes almost every American brand now, except for Ka-Bar which is made in Taiwan (free China).

My father was given a Swede made folding knife as a gift when he went there on business in the 80's. Sharpest damn knife I've ever used. I've been using it for skinning for years, and it has never needed sharpening.

I will try to find out the mfr and let you know. I'm sure you know of them since you are The Swede!

Not true S.C. - Mission Knives is made in Kalifornia. Same with most of the blades by Cold Steel. SOG is made here in Lynnwood, Washington. There are a lot of US made knives still for sale. Some of the product lines may include blades made overseas, but they are generally the cheaper ones of the product line...

Good to know. I have difficulty finding knives for general use that are not made overseas that aren't boucoup dollars.

I received as a gift for beeing a groomsman a Frost 35yr anniversary edidtion saddlehorn knife with ram's horn handles, nickel silver bolsters and brass pins. Nice knife, but made in China.

While most knives listed in the above thread are good knives dont forget the granddaddy of all AMERICAN knives. Case knives are the most collected and desirable knives ever produced bar none. Entire books have been written on just this brand alone. It seems the only knives people are interested in have stainless blades and plastic or steel handles. These have no personality or class in MHO. I remember when we compared knives and showed off our beautiful bone handles and sculptued blades. But alas these days are gone. Heck I can even remember when a knife was made for cutting, instead of being used as a prybar. My everyday carry knife? A 1930's greenbone handled, Case Tested XX 2 blade jack. With it I CUT many things a week. I have cleaned fish and skinned and gutted many big game animals including elk and buffalo.

Default Buck Squire

I started carrying a Buck folder on my belt when I was a Cub Scout (probably because Bo and Luke did.) In college and just after, I worked in an office environment and wearing a belt knife looked out of place so I moved it to my pocket so people would stop asking me about it. After work, it went right back on. After ruining too many pockets in too many pairs of pants, I quietly moved it back to my belt. Luckily, the popularity of Leatherman tools, made my knife case stick out less than it used to. I had it on at both my wedding and my dad's funeral.

To be honest, I have about 10 knives that I rotate for daily wear. I match them to my outfits like my wife matches her shoes. (Honey, does this switchblade make me look fat?) I have had a Buck Squire consistently since 1982. I say consistently because I've lost two and immediately replaced them. It's like an extension of my hand. The action is smooth and tight. The lock is secure. I can reach everywhere to clean it and it keeps an edge like the old ads said. I like Case and Boker too, but I will always have a Buck.

The Squire's blade is about as long as my index finger, which is a good size for a pocket knife. I don't seriously consider my knife a weapon except under the most peculiar of circumstances. If I don't have my gun, pepper spray or a bat, I'd rather have my hands free than introduce a knife to a fight. That said, I don't like to be anywhere without a knife. I won't carry a knife that I can't use. I use my knife as a pry bar, a fire poker, a screwdriver, a hammer, sometimes an eating utensil. I've broken a few and lost several. When you lose or destroy your Buck, you go buy another one just like it. Also, their cases go with any attire.

I carry a gerber folding knife with me just about everywhere. I don't know the name or model, a friend gave it to me. It has a sturdy blade, and a nice setup. Always been reliable when it needs to be, from cutting rope and line to cleaning game it gets the job done.
