Hey all, just wondering if anyone knows where the myerchin knives are manufactured, near as I can tell the riggers knives are German, but am not sure. Thanks!

Yep, nowadays they are manufactured in China from "German marine quality stainless" which is akin to 440C.

Do not let the Chinese manufacture put you off as they are of very fine quality indeed  :salute:

It says "Made in USA" on their web site: https://myerchin.com/10kwh-printed-lithium-battery/  :think: :think:

I think that that “made in the us” is reffered only to that specific product.

Most likely, I called the company yesterday and most of their products are chines through a Japanese company, but some are still Japanese, great knives either way! :like:

After testing these knives, I've discovered that the folding knives are probably the worst sailing knives out there. The blades never hold an edge, the bearings are always loose, and some of them are hard to open because the flipper and marlinspike brush against each other. If you are going to get a myerchins, get the fixed blade offshore systems, way better quality

Wow. I have used the non-flipper captain for some years and never had similar issues, sorry to hear. The only minor “flaw” was the weigth, for a folder. I agree that they are not the best in holding an edge, but i found quite easy to fix that with few swipes on the sharpmaker. Anyway thanks for sharing!

Anytime man! Just from what I've gathered from my own experience and from others stories, the fixed blades and the older ones where of a much higher quality. I have a serrated offshore arriving in the mail soon with a couple different variations of the folders, just to see if it was just a lemon that I had. Keep watching, as I'll be starting a new thread soon dedicated to reviews of different sailing knives :cheers:
