Gerber Knives made in China
This is one of the best Knives for the money I have. Super sharp blade is easy to re-sharpen. Rubber coated handle provides an excellent and comfortable grip. Best of all it's priced reasonably and made in the USA.
Surprised it may be Made in USA.
Glad a model of BG series now has an American Workforce assembling the knife. Unfortunately, unlike a quality knife made in USA, the words "Made in USA" are merely silkscreened on the blade.
Prior Gerber generations stamped it in the blade, and were proud to make it a very permanent, proud statement.
The package says, on the back, designed and engineeredin the USA, and in other tiny letters Made in USA. This, combined with Built with American Labor prominantly on the front of the package makes me pretty sure the 5 parts of this knife (blade, 3 push pins, and backspring, come from China and are only snapped together here in the US.
Companies that make items fully here simply say, in bold letters, Made in USA.
The knife works fine, and has a nice half-open detent - much like the old Gerber 400 LST knives of the 1990s - although the lanyard hole on the Compact 2 is much smaller.
Five stars when it clearly states it is fully made in USA (stamped into the blade), the lanyard hole is made bigger, and the package is more clear that it is fully domestic.
Made in the US..awesome!
Bear Grylls..cool guy
Color scheme..love it
build materials..awesome for the price
The one thing is the the coating on the blade. Scratches appear even though I don't see to even touch it. The coating is really bad.
