My dad picked up one of those Caniks as well. I agree it looks and feels really nice. I also agree that for a while any resale value will not be much.
Not sure about the HK internals, but I have one of the HK branded folding knives and says right on it "China". It's probably one of my favorite knives. I feel the quality is right up there with more expensive brands, but a fraction of the price.
