I consider these made in China BUCKs to be a best buy for a knife that you are going to work hard. If you want a knife that is as good as the USA made BUCKs, but that you don't mind getting scratched or dirty, these are the knives to buy. I round off the bolsters with a file and sandpaper to make them more hand and pocket friendly. I also run a 320 grit sandpaper along the top ridges of the blades to take that sharp edge off of them. Then you have a hand and pocket friendly working knife.
