    Every time the company or knife model is mentioned by name in a forum, it improves the chances of that company and/or knife showing up in a search result, making it seem more legitimate, to those who don't read the blurb.

    "Oh!!! They talk about this company/knife a lot on a knife forum! It must be good!"

    Could that be the OP's intent?

    OP stated my intent. If this prevents at least one more person from getting screwed. Sorta like the guy that sells a lame horse as sound because that's what he was told when he got stuck with it.

    Something can be accepted as generally true but still lead to litigation, you brick wall. Just because forum members believe country of origin to be a place other than named by the manufacturer doesn’t mean a company selling the product can just change the country in the advertisement against the wishes of the manufacturer. That could, once again, lead to LITIGATION. You understand what that means, right?

    I never said anything about something being “worthy” of forum space. It has to do with filling physical storage with redundant threads when a search function is available.

    Technically made “under” Texas since the top secret [email protected]$tr base was located about 1 mile below the surface from what I heard someone read in some redacted files.

    So......we are going to act like you just didn't say this?

    You made a judgment if op was worthy to waste space, which isn't your space, nor are you a mod. Don't like it move on. Heck even be petty if you want and report if you feel so strongly in your convictions.

    And come up with something better then a "brick wall", it's repetitive, intentionally demeaning, and you are wasting space (see what i did there :eek:.)

    At the very least, KC should take off the country of origin like BHQ did, or do not sell the product at all. Seems like an easy step to take, and keep your customer service reputation intact. My dealings with KC have been favorable over the years, and by doing the right thing not only would show them in a positive light, but would put the issue to rest.......finally. I wonder what it would look like to just torch or destroy the Quartermaster stock, sell tickets to the event to make up for the lost funds, and everyone has a good time!!! :D

    Back to qtrmstr, how did I miss this gem from Jared West from 2017 addressing this exact concern with knifenews:

    https://knifenews.com/qtrmstr-knives/

    "We also asked the company to address rumors they’ve been outsourcing production to China while claiming their knives are made in the USA. West maintains QTRMSTR knives are produced stateside and says the company uses five different production facilities across the country for different processes. West goes on to say the controversy hasn’t interfered with QTRMSTR’s mission. “If teenagers want to make false connections it’s not for us to worry about. Cream rises to the top. As long as we keep up the great quality we’ll prove we’re one of the top contenders.”

    So there were 5 facilities! How did we miss 5 facilities?!?!?

    Wow. Kept the truth moving around, kept everyone guessing. Everyone remember this? What a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive. Eventually the person weaving gets caught in the same web.

    Maybe they should throw in a few free car wash coupons with the purchase of every Quartermaster knife ?

    That first quoted line is what we are taking issue with you keep putting all this blame on KC who is limited by law in what they can print on their page. We don't know enough about their contract to know what they can change but assuming theirs is no more restricted than others then they should remove it as many others have. You are implying that they are leaving it with the intent to deceive which is a bit of a stretch. I can understand that people do and have taken issue with their lack of action and swear them off. I have never purchased from KC myself though I often have other reasons that I didn't buy from them rendering this detail irrelevant to the consideration. Your final quoted remark from that post would but a heavy burden on the seller that already takes on a significant burden and in an industry that is not as easy as many others I believe.

    We are not as much defending KC as trying to show how your attacks on them are without solid logic or proof you accuse them of malicious intent without anything that shows their lack of action is anything more than laziness.
