    I bought a Bud K Tanto and it feels pretty solid, not wiggly and loose like some cheap garbage you'd find online. Though it says "made in China", it is comfortable to hold, the paint doesn't chip or scratch easily (haven't tried to rub it against anything hard, yet).

    Anywho, what's your outtake?

    The Bud K catalog is for kids and mall ninjas. There are probably not 5 pieces of quality cutlery in the entire catalog.
    You asked!

    And what I'm looking for is good, honest, opinions. Thanks, Bill.

    True beans, alot of there stuff is decor, cheaper "ninja" stuff and kids "toys" (though, all there stuff, except the possibility of the wooden training swords/knives, are really not kids toys). I do tend to stay away from the cheap reproductions that wobbles and makes sounds like the blade is not a perfect fit in the hilt.

    Was thinking about getting a Moro Barong and heard some pretty good things about Cold Steel (At least, when I first heard about Cold Steel). I'll probably look around before I dish out any more money. http://www.coldsteel.com/88pb.html

    I don't mind the CRKT or the Kershaws.
