Are those Forester bars made in Japan? They look so nice I wonder if they're rebadged Sugi or Tsumura.

Supposed to be 58 Rockwell hardness on rails, with Swiss bearings in sprocket, but who knows? Lol
They seem pretty nice for the price (MUCH BETTER than the Oregon bars I own).

Yeah they are a quality bar. The Forester Platinum makings do wear off after a few years of use, so there is that. :oops:
