I’ve recently bought some buck fixed blades and they are definitely still USA made. However lots of the buck folders are imports. I think the 110 and 112 folders are still USA.

The new uncle Henry stuff is junk, but you can get on eBay and buy vintage USA ones all day. A lot of people have them from the 80s and 90s still in the original packaging. Prices aren’t bad either.

So my question is...are Buck, Old Timer and Uncle Henry all about the same? I know they are all imports
They’re not all the same, and they’re not all imports. Buck has been making knives in the US all along, and there are some made in the USA Schrade Old Timers, although they’re reportedly being OEM’d for them because they no longer have US production capability themselves.

The rough rider knives are not bad for the money. I bought a few for less than $10 that I figured would just be throw aways. I was actually pretty impressed with the quality vs cost.
I have a rough rider liner lock that is a solid knife.
