I assume this is a tongue in cheek question? Tone in forum posts in next to impossible to gauge.SpyderEdgeForever wrote: ↑Fri Nov 30, 2018 7:58 pmWhat would happen if a nation such as the USA officially said "Taiwan is an eternal independent state and the PRC has no right to it whatsoever. They have no claim to it, and any and all attempts to go against this statement will be considered an act of aggressive warfare, and we will respond accordingly." and in return America wanted to have Taiwan give them extra-great deals on knives and other goods?BigGrove wrote: ↑Thu Nov 29, 2018 7:02 pmIf we’re going to clarify it’s best to be accurate. They’re actually both China - the Republic of China (commonly referred to as Taiwan) and the People's Republic of China.
The USA officially does not recognize Taiwan as an independent state and considers it to be part of China. Per the US State Department website:
“The United States recognized the Government of the People's Republic of China as the sole legal government of China, acknowledging the Chinese position that there is but one China and Taiwan is part of China.”

They also just announced that they are going to launch an "artificial moon" into space in 2020. It will hover over a city and shine lights down on the city making street lights obsolete. Not bad for a 3rd world country with a Yuan/dollar value of 6/1.

Sweden, switzerland, austria and ireland are third world countries as well and they are doing Just fine
I think most of the asian countries are not so underdeveloped as they used to be.
That said, when i buy a knife, i buy a knife not a country, so buildquality, fit and finish is whats important to me. Not where it is made, i would pay the same for an american or chinese knife given the same quality/material.
Fine as in "ok." You have to keep in mind that it's hard to compare between price points...A tenacious is a great knife for the price, but it probably doesn't hold up to the PM2. I still love both...I still think both are great quality.
Exactly. Look at dollar/yen exchange of 1 to 114. That doesn't mean a US dollar buys 100 times as much stuff in Japan.
