All one has to do is to compare the knife industry to other examples of manufacturing for the past few decades. How many of us would ever expect Toyota to be the number one seller of automobiles in the United States? Their method for attaining that status was really rather simple. Bring out a new modern look to the automobile, add in a high standard of quality and then mix in value with reasonable prices. Before you jump at what seems to be an error in my logic, remember one major point. Toyota may have been an “offshore” product at one time, but now it is as much “Made in the USA” as Chevy or Ford.
