Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I purchased a Pakistan-made Damascus knife from Amazon for around $60 and I’ve been very impressed with it for the price!! I use my knives hard at a rope factory I work at. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: * Has good edge retention. I assume it’s at least 58 HRC because it seems most Pakistan-made Damascus knives are described as having 58-60 HRC these days and I believe it!! * Built like a tank. I like how heavy duty and solid the knife is. No blade play. * It’s a beautiful handmade knife. Excellent fit and finish. I love the materials they use to hand make these knives in Pakistan. * Incredible value!! I assume this is because the American dollar is worth a lot compared to the Pakistani rupee. Cons: * No pocket clip. It came with a sheath instead. However, maybe sheaths are better anyways for heavy pocket knives. Here’s some pics of my knife. It has a 4” blade and apparently weighs about 12 ounces (I like heavy knives).
