I’m sure Dollarama sells some counterfeit stuff, but that’s not what that article is mainly talking about.
Oops, sorry for the confusion. But the article does mention " but the store has been sued by Nike, for selling counterfeit footwear emblazoned with Nike’s iconic basketball player silhouette,"

You can be sure these will with time have the blade chip and splinter, and the likely low quality wood handle will separate.
Sorry? I see it on a sticker? I have been trying to figure out myself if the product is the same as the $$$ versions.. what are you saying helps determine that?

For example I bought the red stemless glasses and there is a sticker on the glass that says made in America and the name of the company with the price.. but how does one really figure it out if cheap nothing bbn or $$

I bought a few of these knives and I think they are decent. I don't know enough about knives to give a review but I'm fairly certain these are not counterfeit products. They have been repackaged by Dollarama with their sticker. They probably bought a lot of overstock items. The knives come in a box and the sticker that was originally used to seal the box is cut open. They then repackaged it with the box open to show the knife. No one would buy a knife that they can't see from a fairly unknown company. I would say they are worth 10-20 bucks at least considering the above and the actual build quality.

I have a $200 hand made santoku knife from knifewear. I used it for many years but now my go-to knife is a cheap $4 one from dollarama. I actually prefer it to the japanese knife because it goes into the dishwasher, and I hone it each time on a sharpening block before I use it so it's always razor sharp. Because it's so cheap I don't care. For those people about to drop hundreds of dollars on a good knife, I'd suggest they try that first.

I suggest if you enjoy cooking, and do a lot of it, if you can afford a real knife don't bother with these cheap ones.

Ignore the claim that these are worth $100 and be happy with your $4 knife. Let's be honest, the bread knife will never get so dull that it won't work if you only use it for bread.

They had Funkos that were highly dubious. It wasn't just the product that was "off" and could have been b-stock/manufacturing defects, but the boxes were very off too.
