Thirty years and still good as new.
I purchased an Uncle Henry LB7 and a rigger's knife with a marlinspike for my sailboat at the Schrade factory store in Ellenville N.Y. in 1985. Side by side with the Buck 110 for comparison, the Schrade had superior fit and finish to the Buck. Unlike the Bucks from 30 years ago, there were no gaps between the brass bolsters and the wood scales, the brass pins were finished flush with the scales on the Schrade, while the Buck's were bumping out past the scales. The blade steel is 440C, and it holds an edge quite well, but it takes a bit more effort to sharpen it. When I first got the knife I oiled the sheath with the same Neatsfoot oil I use on a baseball glove, and it still looks great and the leather is supple with no cracks. Brass part are quite a bit softer than steel and can get nicks and scratches easier than the blade, but I don't mind the patina of work done. If I was headed on a long trip and could only carry one knife of the many I own, this would be the one. If you carry it in your pocket, it will be rather heavy, the only downside to an otherwise fantastic knife.

Great Knife
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.

US-built knife is excellent
Just like the heading says, I have the US-made knife and it's excellent. It has a solid build with a healthy weight to it. I use it for all kinds of jobs and it's been excellent
