Where are Colt knives made?

Camping Knives

Hi I am interested in a good hunting/outdoors/camping knife, so I went to a few stores and I like a Colt knife. I want to make some research in the brand before purchasing it. Can anyone tell me where are this knives made and if you can tell me about any good knife? Thanks

Colt knives are produced by United Cutlery in their factories in China, Thailand, Mexico, and some other place I can’t recall right off. Not Thailand….Taiwan!

Coffee’s still brewing and I ain’t quite awake yet.

Supposedly, there’s a limited amount of really good ones that they still make in the US, but I personally haven’t seen any in a while and I’m beginning to think it’s a rumor just like the "black chrome Yugo SKS".

United Cutlery isn’t known for being a super terrific name in and of itself, but it just goes to show that there really aren’t many truly *bad* knife companies left these days. The days of the real "cheese" are gone. Today, some of the most respected brands can come off the same factory lines as some of the least….and there’s not many "experts" these days that realize that.

If you like it, I’d say go for it! You’ve got nothing to lose. If you spend a reasonable amount on it and it even turns out to be less than you expected, you aren’t out too much. Just don’t expect the sun and moon from it, know what I mean?
