I bought a box of them at a fishing supply store that was going out of business. They worked OK they didn't hold a blade for too long when gutting deer and sharpened so-so. But for a $10-20 knife I guess they worked alright.

I think they use 529 Steel which is the same you would find on the Buck-Lite.

I'm betting on MedMech's opinion here.

My favorite knife is a sharp one that's available when I need it. I don't care if it's a razor sharp p-38 if it's the only sharp knife I have it's the best on earth.
