    MADE IN THE U.S.A

    We talk about German and Japanese knives all the time. I was wondering what knives are mass produced in the u.s.. So I did a search and ended up with ...

    I have a New West knife and am gonna do a write up on it soon. I was wondering if there are any others out there that I am missing. I know there is Cutco but I can't find a knife over 50$ from them. Please post any others.

    newest looks ok, but sabaknife design just isn't for me at all. maybe they work but they definitely are not appealing.

    threres gotta be more in the US??

    Ya and for over 200$ I have no idea what they are thinking. I can't even think how I would use that at work. Like the handles on both. I did find another one but I keep drawing a blank on it.

    I'm going on record with NewWest and say it's junk. I hate to get that stuff in for sharpening, Cutco is better.

    The Sabathing is.......well........interesting

    I've had their 8" chef's knife for years. I had to do a lot of thinning to get a 12-15 degree edge but it has an RC hardness of 60 so it will take the lower angle. It's a heavy duty knife with a German shape but I use it from time to time.
    It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    The Sabas are just weird looking. I really don't like serrated knives with offset handles like that, so I can't see myself liking those.

    NKW serrated bread knife...I've looked at that before, and still looking for a serrated Im going to like, as Im planning on gifting my Wustof serrated away, but the price point and the handles on the NKW's ...I just can't get over. The material used reminds me of cheap gas station pocket knives.
