Kershaw quality difference by origin

USA 9+/10

China 5-7/10

When a no-name item shows up on Amazon with multiple extraordinarily high ratings I regard them with suspicion. But when a name brand item has many 4 and 5 star ratings, I then look to see how many 1-star & 2-star ratings there are. While it's possible to sock-puppet your way to a high overall score, it's not possible (I don't think)to stop people who are highly dissatisfied from leaving 1 and 2 star ratings. This knife has only a single 1-star or 2-star rating. I find that encouraging in determining whether the item is any good.

Kershaw Volt II is my EDC and a great knife. Made in China.

Unfortunately you can still be mislead by the idiots who give it 5 stars exclusively based on "it was sharp out of the box!"

Anyone can pretty much say anything regardless of where, or even if, and when they bought it.

fwiw, when i clicked on the link it said that i ordered it already on 4/14/2012 and paid $14.99. that was back when Amazon didn't charge sales tax in CA. it's one of my beater knives.
