The knife you find here is from Xin Cutlery and is made and manufactured in Guandong, China. We're attracted to them because of the combination of attractive design, good steel, and great price.
The steel used is called 304Cu and it is heat-treated to Rockwell HRC 62+-. It contains a small amount of copper and they market the steel as having antibacterial and corrosion resistance properties. We can attest to the stainless aspect but we're not so sure about the antibacterial claim.
During our home-use tests the knife cuts well, holds an edge well, and the handle is top quality. It has an innovative twist design which feels good in the hand and looks great.
