You have to really dig in… as many products are simply “assembled” in the country of origin from parts that are sourced globally (aka China).

In the U.S., I believe their is a min. % of parts that have to be made in the U.S. to legitimately use the Made in US logo.

Another trick is to claim “made in America” for products coming out of Mexico.

Robert Sorby tools are coming out of England.

Ashley Isles chisels are made in England.

Jaguar, Lotus, Roll-Royce and Bentley cars, England. Nissan, Ford, and Honda all build cars in England.

Rolls-Royce is one of the main players in jet engines, making them in, yup, England.

MAKITA who took over DOLMAR saws in Germany got back and will identify where a saw was made if you ask by email stating the model number you are interested in.
HUSQVARNA aint replied.
STIHL went a step further and listed the saws available in England that are made in Germany
