I voted no hard limit. The Chinese can make some great stuff, and while I don't agree with the politics of China it won't stop me from supporting a company I like because I think we as a people can overcome those barriers. Maybe China will never change, but I can hope.
Either way, my Tenacious was my first Spyderco, and it's not my last Chinese spyderco even though I have some American and a Taiwan Spydie. I have a number of Chinese Kershaws and they are fine knives. I've been looking at Artisan Cutlery knives, they have some nice designs. We/Civivi, ruike, reate... They make some good looking pieces, apparently of very high quality. Will I spent upwards of 200 bucks on one? Not likely, just because I find it hard to spend over 150 on a knife!
But I have no illusions that there are passionate knife makers in China. I kind of liken it to Milwaukee tools. People still respect the name and the tools, yet most are now made in China. I own some milwaukee tools, but only my Sawzall is made in the US. It's all in the quality of materials, assembly, and qc.
Anyway, enough rambling. I love knives. I love good knives. Good knives can come from anywhere. So can bad knives. Buy what you like!
