My Buck knives are made in the USA, but I hear they're made in China now. Don't know if it's true or not.

Not a lot of boots or shoes made in USA any longer. Red Wing makes about 90% of their boots in China now. A lot of US made boots are actually made in Puerto Rico.
Buck and Kershaw still make about 70% if their knives in the U.S. but do import some from Tiawan/China.
Their manufacturing capacity here hit its limits so they had to start importing.
The good part on Buck and Kershaw is that no body here in the U.S. lost a job, in fact they both carry max employees on payrolls.
