Here's another my brother picked up for me. He got it at a flea market in North Carolina.I've seen switches like this marked China. The fit & finish is bad and the quality is poor. Could it be falsely stamped with Milano?

That's the first Fast knife I have seen with a nick/pull.
Other than that;
I got one here I picked up within the past couple of years stamped Italy. It is not a top of the line knife, but it looks and works nicely, no blade wobble, etc. It will jump out of your hand if you do not hold on.
It looks similar, but something about it sezs China.
I do not know anything about it as far as who made them.
Mine does not have a nick though. I will try and post an image tomorrow, if one does not pop up.

I've traded in this style with "Milano" stamps before. The distributor said they are not Chinese, but he couldn't prove it. The $5.45 price tag didn't bolster his claim of European make.
