The cost is prohibitive. They sell well at prices that is a loss for us. Not a good business decision. Competing with the Chinese is challenging and that's how they've taken over the manufacturing of many of the world's products. I believe it will be a bigger problem in the future.
The current COVID-19 crisis clearly demonstrates how dependent the US is on China for our medicines. Not a secure position to be in. My hope is that Americans will wise up to the current situation and build our basic needs like drugs in the US. But my confidence in this happening is not great. It seems that most people will jump at the short term attraction of cheaper goods, with little thought for the future.
Hi Sal hate to disagree but it is not really a matter of being cheap.
Facts of the matter are plain and simple large corporations and paid for politicians sold America to the Chinese and other countries long ago.
We The people generally work for our living and exist within a society of their manipulation. Corporations in America enjoy the rights and protections of actual human beings without consequence for their actions and that includes the ability to funnel large sums of money and favors to politicians.
Like you I hope to see this remedied and hope this COVID-19 will wake people up but also doubt the movers and shakers are going to give up their high standards of living selling the U.S. out has brought them.
As for buying luxury items like knives from China? Heck I won’t even buy Spyderco knives made there!
If I am going to spend my hard earned money then I demand quality and I will spend more for made in America when and where I can.
This is why I purchase Spyderco Knives, seriously who needs a $200.00 plus pocket knife? Let alone more than one?
Holds hand up and says Make mine Spyderco preferably Golden made models.
I hope Spyderco moves everything to Golden and with the advent of SPY27, to overtake VG-10, CPM-S45VN, Maxamet, Cruwear well why the heck not? Certainly there is an H1 equivalent for Salt series I have read about them but do not know if they can be made here.
Okay so charge me 10 to 20 dollars more for my next knife because we have to rebuild America’s interests again, if that is what it takes fine! Just tell me this is why and I will gladly donate that extra money for such a worthy cause.
The recent price bump by dealers have no such explanation so I objected to that. It just came off as we can so we are.
