    Not a great knife to prepare food, but a great knife to chase away those who want to eat my food... In any case, a steal at that price.

    Judging by the complete lack of taper my first thought was cheap pakistan damascus crap. Someone posted something similar before, ebay listing had a load of vintage/antique/handmade blurb/crap.

    lol yep ebay. from London. Speaking of Pakistan I got a descent knife from there that took less time to get here, than the one I ordered from the same state I'm in.

    That is like a Western Daba. I have a Tojiro DP Western Daba and it is about that thick. I use it for lobster, crab or very hard vegetables. Really a handy knife in my kitchen from time to time.

    I'm sure for $20 you ain't getting superb heat treat or steel either. It might be a nice blank to practice your grinding skills on, but as for ever being a decent knife....doubt it.

    That's a lot of grinding. I had to grind from 3/16 on a couple of occasions, not much fun.

    This blade is 1/4. Probably pretty gummy too.
