  •  Another 'fact' (7+ / 0-)

    about working 'directly with manufactures'.  I know for a fact that many manufacturers will actually lower their quality for products they sell to WalMart.  If you want the high quality stuff, go to a locally owned business.

      sold at walmart  is cheap to purchase and made in China, a Buck knife from a reputable dealer is still US made but generally costs twice as much for the same model....

      I picked one up dirt cheap on clearance after Christmas a few years back....It isn't even close to my other Buck products though it is a decent knife for a Chinese made blade.....I actually called Buck to bitch when I turned it over and saw the China rollmark.....It never even occurred                       to me it might not be the same Buck I was used to......Until the CS guy told me they even complained to the boss no avail.....They wanted the market coverage I guess and were willing to cheap out their product to get it....
