    He doesn't want Chinese.

  3. At the risk of derailing the thread, it depends on the reason why he doesn't want to buy a Chinese-made knife. It's just a perceived quality issue, I'd say @sabre cat is right, and they're really worth a look. If it's any other reason, then that's up to the buyer. My point is just not to judge the quality of all Chinese knives based on M-Tech and other gas station fodder.

    I like the locking system on the Marksman. I'm going to buy it from knife center. Thanks again fellows.
    when it comes to guns and knives I only buy american-made products that's just my way I guess .

    Nothing wrong with that. I wish more people would buy American products.

    Most people I know buy only based upon price.

    Congrats! I have no personal experience with that particular knife but you get Bucks warranty and Mr Bos + crew heat treat. Nothing wrong with 154cm.

    Make another post after you get the knife and use it for a week or two. :thumbsup:

    Yes, Buck offers decent products at reasonable prices and the heat treatment they use is second to none.

    And 154cm is good steel. Most of the knives I reach for are made from it.

    You should pick one up. Especially if you are a fan of the brand. Design, ergos, build quality, materials, innovation, performance. Probably one of the best products Buck has put out in years. The Marksman is everything we wished the Vantage was going to be.
    It's the only Buck knife I own.

    Look at Hougue or Protech on the secondary market.
