    Lol.

    Tbh, I'm not well versed when it comes to the company in any way shape or form. I remember buying a small bust and knife from a flea market when I was young branded Bud K. I assumed they still had a branded product in some shape or form. In my experience, if that product exists today, it's wall hanger quality.

    Thats a good point actually. Cause budk does sell different brands and I do like some of them. So ya I guess you could say it does.

    When I was 12 or 13.

    That's where it started, but would never get anything from that sort of quality now as an adult.

    While I know Budk products are not good quality overall, I still love perusing the catalogs. Some of the products they sell are OK - sometimes I take a gamble. I love the Kissing Crane branded trappers, and they do not seem to be available elsewhere. Made in Taiwan, good quality.

    On the other hand, I picked up a Kissing Crane Barlow in Green Burlap Micarta, sadly it was Paki made garbage. I was hoping for better, but sometimes its a gamble.

    The Bud K catalog maybe the best outhouse literature known to man.
