I can confirm the Farson Blade is made in China. I normally wouldn't take issue with this except for how they do their best to make people THINK this product is made is the USA. Their advertising is disingenuous at best. In actual fact, while they have a license to put their name on the pre-existing design of a U.S. knifemaker, the sum total of their own designed and manufactured U.S. products is exactly z-e-r-o. So much for their commitment to, as stated on their home page, "try and make them in the U.S.A.". They are appealing to your patriotism so you can support Chinese manufacturing jobs.
Oh, if you are still interested, according to the company head Mike Jones, this item is made of 7CR17 which is almost identical to 440A composition wise. It is heat treated to 56-58Rc (this information courtesy of this items review on thefirearmblog.com).
It is basically an Ulu knife, but harder to hold, and in fact was kind of fun to use for food (salad) prep in the kitchen. But as a survival tool I cannot think of a single reason to choose this over, say, a Swedish made Mora you can get for $13 or a knife actually made in the U.S.A., a Buck Vantage Avid made of the excellent 13C26 Sandvik Stainless Steel for $30! How the Farson Blade could be made in China and still cost almost $39 (shipped) is beyond me; maybe they are banking it to pay for the lawsuit that is going to be filed when someone squats down and has their thigh laid open as this tool slices fight through the totally inadequate sheath? Ahhhh, sorry, that was kinda tacky put please take away the point - replace the sheath by making a kydex one for a couple bucks or line the edge of the included sheath with rivets or Chicago screws along the cutting edge portion.

Not very shrap. To light for any heavy work. Light duty camp kitchen work is about all its good for. Not impressed.

I bought this with the idea of getting a more universal tool to put in my EDC bag, along with my other cutting devices. Last weekend, I happened to be passing an accident and there was a lady trapped in her car due to a stuck seat belt. This Fremont Knife was just the ticket to squeeze between her body and the seat-belt. One slice and she was free, It cut from the inside out and did not even come close to cutting the victim, as she fell onto the wrapped side of the blade.

It also works well for chopping vegetables when I am cooking. Lots of uses, just lit your imagination be your guide.

***WARNING*** Made In China... I would have never purchased this tool if I had known it was made in China. This tidbit of information is not listed on Amazon and I even went to the manufactures web site before ordering and nowhere is this stated. You get a lot of information about being a knife maker out of Wyoming and their knives being made in the U.S.A. but what I ended up with is cheap P.O.S. that was made in China.

I bought this tool as it had been given fine ratings as an inovative and usefull survial tool. It took ages to get delivered and when I tried to use it in the wilderness it was evident that it has a sharp cutting edge but that it is difficult to handle the blade as its hold cuts into your fingers and wobbles easily huring your knuckles. If battoning it is also difficult to cut through Wood as it is difficult to Control and might fly away when hitting its back. Also the paracord gets damaged if you batton on it. Further it is not logical to remove the paracord every time you want to chop up some Wood. Some Reviews on youtube show how one might attacht it to a stick and use it as an axe. This also is a waste of time and only results in a stick witha wobbly blade on its end. Finally the thin lacks a sharp Point that is often wery usefull. In thing might be usefull for cutting sallad in the kitchen but not for the wilderness en never for a survival situation. For a EDS survival blad I would rather recommend the Schrade F16 neck knife.

So after reading other reviews I wasn't sure what to expect.

The blade came more than sharp enough to do the job and it is a sneaky little bastard that will bite you as soon as you forget to respect it. The fit and finish could be better, the interior edges were a little rough but I planned on rounding them out with a Dremel anyway because I expected sharp corners at this price point. Since I like to customize my stuff, the first thing I did was re-do the handle with a Strider wrap and it has made the tool much more comfortable to hold, as soon as the cuts I gave myself heal... sneaky little bastard.

Two complaints from other reviewers that I didn't experience:
1.) I didn't find the tool to be "too light", I bought it as a lightweight back-up for my back-up, to add redundancy to one of my kits. It wouldn't make much of a chopper anyway unless you like skinned knuckles. At any rate, the design makes any catastrophic failure very unlikely no matter what you do with it, knuckles or no knuckles.
2.) Made in China: I didn't notice it marked anywhere and I don't really have an axe to grind on this subject so for my purposes it is kind of a non-issue. It would be nice to know what steel the tool is made out of though. I know some reviewers have posted it as a 5Cr or a 7Cr, I wouldn't mind knowing because it can effect the kind of maintenance you should do, but with this design you can sacrifice some toughness and use a more stainless steel.

Minus a star for some lazy QA, otherwise worth the purchase.
