I have not. There are plenty of lower end knives from China that have American sounding names. This could be one of them.

Is it stamped "China" or "Pakistan" anywhere?

Thanks TFL. I actually googled it a while back and could not find anything on it. But I see where it can be found on several links now. Looks like not CHINA but also not a treasure neither at 19.95.

These are generally from either China or Taiwan. My bet is that the darned thing is from China. Not a "treasure" but a "user" that won't leave you crying if you break it.

Back in the day they were pretty decent knives, but not much to look at. Use it like you stole it!

Not a darned thing wrong with them. Inexpensive, useable cutters. That's why you keep 'em sharp, snap them open when you need them and use them until they either break or until they're worn out. Get your value from it and smile while you do it.

It is akin to buying a Chinese Ganzo-brand knife. Great 440C Chinese automatics! I have a friend that used his Ganzo automatic to skin and clean at least two deer. His friend's Kershaw Launch required a "touch up" on a stone before his own Ganzo had to be taken to the grit. The only drawback was he had to "clean out" his Ganzo's automatic mechanism by washing it out. After that was accomplished, the knife functioned normally. Inexpensive knives aren't always bad. (Some are, some aren't). Hell, I own three of them and wouldn't give them up, ever!

At less than $20.00 shipped by FastTech out of China, they're a screaming deal!

So many people buy automatic knives and treat them as if they're "play pretties" or "collectibles". This is all well and good, but I buy my knives to use them. Italian stilettos are fun, but usually are of little use besides opening letters, stabbing people, etc.

My most recent purchase was a Buck 110 Auto. It is a worker from the knife's 1963 introduction. The Auto is the obvious "advancement" of the model with the easy push-button opening. (Who would have thought it)? ::shrug:: ::dang:: :roll: Yes, I have been buying useful autos for some time and no longer buy any "shoebox queens" for this very reason. I like tools that I can use.

The Knife Tech was originally made for Puma.
They were then sold under the Knife Tech brand.
The story was-they were made in Solingen, but you know how that goes.
