The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Puma now has a line that I think they are calling SSB line.
Soligen Steel Blades but are assembled in china so they can sell at
Just the other day I was in the sporting goods store when a gentleman about
70yrs old or so came in asking about pocket knives. That store sold both Case
and Buck and when the sales person showed him the stockman knives he proclaimed
" I have never paid that much for a knife and I am not starting now". He then asked
if they had anything in the $30 range and the salesman pointed out the Chinese made Bucks
that were in the next counter. He purchased one of those, he said he wanted a working knife not
a saving knife.
So that is what the knife companies are up against.
