Cannot speak to China made, I purchased my LB7 over 25 years ago when it was still made in the USA. The fact that I still have and use it speaks to its durability. It still holds and edge and cuts anything I need it to. From hunting, fishing, and just general purpose use I have not found a better all purpose lock blade. This is a mus have for any tool kit or pocket.
