Ebay ( Economy )  Blades:
 I call these Ebay blades because these are the ones that everyone seems to be selling  there. Naturally you can find some pretty decent blades on Ebay but they seem to be the exception rather than 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.  Economical as these are, these should be good for the first time knifemaker who doesn't want to sink a lot of money into their first attempt or someone who wants to experiment with some new ideas .

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