For me it depends . They use a few different steels , some of which I'm not in favor of and a couple that I'm good with .
I purchased a " magic " assisted folder and the blade is Aus 8 , which is ok . They have a cr7 that is ok too . Their 400 stuff and the cr3 stuff is a no go for me . For some reason , i cant sharpen the cr3 very well and it frustrated me .
As fa4 as the construction of them , for the most part they're good , especially for the money
Imho , the American knives were better , especially the Derlin. The newer ones have much lighter weight Derlin and I don't like the feel and weight of it . I also prefer carbon steel , but these days it's damn near all stainless
I bought my son a newer sharp finger, which I'm a fan of that pattern big time . His just feels weird along without having the carbon steel ... meh . It did have a decent sheath
I hadc an orange camo China schrade that I used for work and I liked the hell out of it . I believe i left it on a roof out if town , and my luck , haven't been able to find another
For the money, they make a good knife for a work knife and are good to get for the boys ... they'll learn how to sharpen , no doubt
