If this guy didn't digress so much, detest that. But yeah, interesting results in both batches. I've been getting China knockoffs for a couple of years. Thanks for posting this.
I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

I particularly enjoyed the parts where he explains that the metallurgic tester wrote the results on the back of the paper, so he decided to re-write the information on the front of the page as a matter of convenience. He explained that twice in detail and thank god he did or else I would have been completely lost.

Yeah, me too. The other one was his major in college. Sheeeeesh.....but the results are great. Now, another separate indie test to confirm and I can make an og collector buddy of mine eat crow. Gotta love it that there are some manufs in China that deliver on their published specs.

Couldn't watch even one of his vids. I lasted 6-7 minutes. Some knife made by some one in China, might be a clone of a clone... can't remember where he got it....

Waste of time. I shut him off when he started saying that a tested blade may or may not been from a recognized maker.

If I was a maker mentioned in his vid, he better be able to show that the deficient blade was actually one of mine, or there would be litigation.

No need for exotic equipment, a Rockwell tester will usually tell whether a blade is in spec for a particular steel. Knowing which steel it isn't, is more important than knowing which steel it is. If they lie about the steel, what else do you need to know?

That guy is like the Alex Jones of knives in my opinion.

Dishonest makers, and vendors who misrepresent their products need their feet held to the fire, otherwise it will never improve. There was a time that Japanese steel was similarly suspect. They learned the need for honesty, so can China.

@onebadwolf Your post reads as if you haven't even watched the video or if at least listen to what he said.
It's clearly stated that the unmarked knife is not made by CH knives, the other ones with markings were correct, except of the Fura for $20. Easy summary, you get what you pay for, no need to hope for D2 with 60HRC for 20 bucks but the more expensive ones (bought at trusted shops) are all legit.
