    Got this for the wife. Looks and feels absolutely amazing. Fit and finish are perfect. For the price I figured I try it.

    Should be easy to keep sharp considering it uses 1.4116 / X50CrMoV15 steel. Guessing you paid the standard $40 price for it.

    Interesting that it is very hard to find out much information about the company. It seems to be a brand that was created in late 2017. The trademark was registered by the same holding company that owns the Circuit City trademark, and the domain name for the company's web site is registered to Circuit City, the old electronics store chain that went out of business in 2009. The brand was bought by an entrepreneur who is trying to bring it back to life.

    So it looks like this is a "house brand" for the new Circuit City that was created in Dec 2017. There is no indication of where they are made, or by whom. Other than the fancy box and handle, it's probably not much different from the many other similar low-priced imported brands you might find.
