I was hoping it wouldn't come to this but yes you obviously misunderstood me and missed something! You were the first to state China doesn't respect patent laws and not once do I see any CHINA bashing. A fake is just that but could easily be made 100% accurate and reliable if needed (which you even said) to benefit from it. Are you implying that there are no qualified dealers on ebay which is mentioned quite a bit?
No the makers don't push budget knives on people but why not make them here and save some jobs? You do not understand how the corporate world works, it's all about how much money the company can make,and if it's a stock holding company how much money can the shareholders earn.
Thus leading to outrageous salaries,perks and bonuses for the ceo's. Do you really think one ceo should earn more in ONE minute than the blue collar guy making the product makes in a YEAR? This is a fact that was proven in at least one place and there are ongoing investigations into others. Do some research into corporate salaries.
By the way do you have any idea how much money the US has borrowed from CHINA? I think you will be surprized and yes that statement is political!
I'm sorry it came to this and will not argue with you as this is not the appropriate place to do so.
