Ebay ( Economy )  Blades:
 I call these Ebay blades because these are the ones that everyone seems to be selling  there. There are naturally a few  a few really nice knives to find there, but the good knife blanks on Ebay seem to be an exception to the rule. 

Yes, these are made in Pakistan.  I'm not going to tell you that these are the best blades I carry, but my first impression is that for the cost, these really aren't that bad: all of them have a halfway decent grind and  mirror polish finish.  I tried scratching a few of them and I would guess that the hardness is around RC54 or RC55.The included guards are OK I guess, but I'd consider replacing them. Economical as they are, these should be good for the first time knifemaker who doesn't want to sink a lot of money into their first attempt.

If these prove to be popular, I'll start looking at bringing a few more designs on board    375 w
