this knife gets 5 stars, blades are sharp and tight, no side play, good fit and finish. clip point blade is marked "Imperial", other side is marked "IMP17T". spey blade is not marked. box is marked "Imperial schrade" , also marked Taylor Brands, LLC. made in china. it is very good for the price you pay. it would not be fair or informative to compare this to a 20, 30, or 100 dollar knife. i would recommend this to anyone who can't or won't pay out the nose for a high dollar knife.
