[Amazon.ca] Shan Zu Damascus Steel 7 inch Santoku Knife for 22.00$ after 60% off Coupon

Apply coupon MCLOZZZW for 60% off.
Also works for the 4 inch pairing knife.

Seems like a decent knife for 22.00$

Its crap even at 22.

First of all lets not kid ourselves, Damascus is purely for aesthetics.

This is from the details on the amazon " As carbon content represents the sharpness and hardness of a steel, and the number before “Cr” means the carbon content. " Uhhh what? Cr=Chromium C=Carbon lol.

Whats more worrying is that no HRC (hardness rating) is given. This is important as HRC is a indication of how good the heat treatment is, heat treatment is way more important than type of steel used.

A shitty steel properly heat treated will beat any exotic steel not heat treated properly.

Get a victorinox fibrox for around 50. Tried and tested.

I agree, Fibrox are great knives. I have one myself.
We can be all be quick to stereotype and judge, but let's not kid ourselves, these knives have 100's of positive reviews on amazon.com!

It may not be for you, but I'm sure it'll interest a few. Worse case, returns are extremely with amazon.
Also, you're absolutely right, Cr is Chromium. They are correct, them number before is the carbon content and the number after "Cr" is the Chromium content.

The paring knife description states "Rockwell Hardness Scale: 57-59"

Not horrible. Similar to many of the forged henkel knives. Which makes sense. Not as good as good Japanese knives that cost 10X the price, but we're talking a $20 knife compared to a $200 knife.

Seems to get good enough reviews. For the price, I would think that it's a fairly reasonable beater knife or for someone who is used to using garbage but couldn't be trusted to take care of a truly good knife.

And this one is rated F on fakespot. The age where you could trust reviews on Amazon is long gone.

I saw the title and thought that OP might have had typo in the title, and it should have read "Shun"

It's not like everyone has a Rockwell hardness tester in hand. You get what you pay for. The goodl one are 10 times the price. I wonder if these pattern get painted on.
