I sell knives fleamarket style a few times a year. Most of what sells around here are the Chinese assisted openers, so that is what you will find the most of on my tables. I do handle some Buck, Case, & other name brands. But almost everything is Chinese. One brand that seems to be putting a lot of effort into becoming good stuff is Elk Ridge. They are using much better steel, the scale material seems to be high quality as well. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the large jump forward this company is making.
