    I would also prefer American-made knives, but in the last couple of years, I have seen some damned fine blades coming out of both Taiwan and mainland China. Manufacturers such as Kizer, Reate, Stedemon, and even Spyderco are offering very respectable blades from China.
    I`ve been considering purchasing one of these;



    The full-Titanium version with S35VN blade runs just over $200, they also have a less-pricey Vanguard series (with G10 handles, liner-lock, and VG-10 steel) for around $80, which is a good deal for a knife of this quality.

    Today`s choice is the Viper Start (from Maniago, Italy, the same factory that produces Lionsteel). Haven`t handled this knife in a while, almost forgot what a nice knife it is, considering the reasonable price. SHARP, too !

    I'm thinking of adding the Massdrop Ferrum Forge Knife Works Gent to my stable. Looks great and has great specs at a very good price. Anybody familiar with this brand or knife?

    No personal experience but that looks like a nice knife. I'm tempted.

    I know right? It seems stupid cheap if the execution lives up to the materals.

    I'm still with my Sog amigo!

    Always in my pocket unless a bit of light throw practice or various small tasks.

    Today`s ride-along is what I consider to be a "gentleman`s knife"....the Buck-Mayo TNT is extremely pocket-friendly....thin, lightweight, and sharp as a mofo....

    Thanks for posting that. I'm glad to see that he is a fan of Spyderco. I have 3 different models and love them all.

    I have looked at Spyderco's ,they are great knives.
    It's all personal feel and I just really relate to the Sogs.

    That Sog Amigo is a sweet looking knife. I did a search and didn't find that model.

    I was just using Amigo as friend Dave.

    The Sog is the Cash Card.

    It's a small folder that is great for everyday even in dress pants.

    Has a nice flick action.

    I lost one and found another at Walmart.

    Sorry for the confusion.
