First off, so whatcha sayin’? You’re the one who doesn’t seem to “get it”, no matter how often it’s pounded into your head. As to your second “point”, G-10 is not all the same. It is not made of the same materials using the same processes. Neither are bearings or bearing systems (or liners, or blade steel, or anything else for that matter especially when it comes to Chinese manufacturers). I had planned on going into great detail with cited examples to illustrate, but it quite frankly isn’t worth the time. Google phthalates in Chinese plastic toys sometime. 50%+ of these things imported from China contain toxins. Sure, they’re plastic toys, but made with no care to what goes in them. The Chinese tell their own citizens not to let their kids put the toys into their mouth. Why do they do this? It’s cheaper. Think their knife material manufacturing processes are any different?
