The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
My opinion on the China knives : I am sure they are pretty decent quality and cost less for Buck to buy from a third party. (or internationally owned factory whatever it may be)
I also must say I will not support the purchase of these knives, as it is very key to The Economy and The Earth for that matter to support things as close to where you live. Ever heard of the 100 mile diet?
