I have only spent a little time on research . As to where Buck knives are made the do have about 20% of there knives made in China. There fixed blade hunting knives ,the 110 ,112 knives are made in the USA. There compadre line is made in the USA. As far as the Buck GCK line it is also US made. It's a fairly new line of knives made by Buck. There is not a lot of information on them yet . No one has written any reviews stating that parts of these knives were made in China.
I also found out in the little bit of research I have done that Buck is going to be producing even more in the US. I have owned alot of Case, Schrade ,Buck and a few Ontario knives . The Case knives that I have owned were lock blades . If I get my Buck 112 out and sit it beside my Case 7158L . There of equal quality . With that said I believe the Buck 112 to be a bit better as far as quality.
Nothing in the paper work or on the box stated anything about China. On either knife.
I will keep trying to do more research.
Like it or not there are alot of products that are made in China. I hate the fact that my Ontario Rat 5 is a nice quality made in the USA knife . It comes with a made in China sheath.
