    Glad to hear I was wrong! Good for Amazon.

    Yes. Use this link:

    Yeah. I was frankly quite surprised.

    Amazon should ban River Road, seems like they're not only intentionally ripping off customers but popping in and out so quick they're leaving another vendor to deal with the fallout and ruining their reputation.

    As far as China Fair goes, they have two brick and mortar stores near Boston, one in Newton and one in Cambridge near where I work. I bought a carbon steel K Sab 8" chefs knife for my roommate recently for $60.00. They had 4 to choose from and I was able to pick one with reasonably ok fit and finish. The guy at the counter didn't mind showing me all 4 and even said if came back in a few weeks and they would have more. There's a small gap between one of the scales and bolster I didn't notice until later, but overall not too bad. The blade is nice. After some grinding away at the bolster and time on the stones it cuts pretty well, and it's starting to develop a nice patina now that I convinced my roommate not to scrub it off with a scotchbrite pad every time she uses it. I've never dealt with China Fair online, but in person they're a great little store. This reminds me, I might swing buy their Cambridge store to pick up a 4" carbon parer today, they were out last time I went. And no, I don't work for them and neither do any of my friends or family that I know of, I just want to defend a good local (to me) business.

    River Road is only showing 2 (two) adverse reviews on Amazon at this time, re this knife. Other reviews they may have written themselves.

    I'll add one after delivery and suggest others do so as well.

    Well, I put up a negative review as well but, I got to thinking (always dangerous for me), River Road may have been a victim as well. He has very good ratings and he may have innocently tried to clear out his Chinese made Sabs (which in reality, probably isn't that bad for 11 bucks) and some kid at Amazon posted it with the wrong pics and description.

    Good point, i shouldn't assume that just because I think China Fair is innocent then River Road must be guilty.
