I had to google mine.

My Emjoy Chinese knives say they are made of German Steel. Sure.

They are decent and I make better looking and tasting food than any restaurant I’ve ever been to. Except for a life changing chicken sandwich I had in Switzerland one time. But, knives were minimal in the creation of that. So....

Anyway. I need a very sharp knife for processing deer. Or cleaning up chicken. Otherwise, I have kids that help with dishes and I don’t want one of them to have a reconstructive surgery if They put their hands in the sink wrong.

I clean any burrs off the edge right before carving a piece of meat or a big job with soft fruit or veggies that require it.

Expensive knives seems snobby to me. Plus, I think it’s foolish to over pay for such a simple tool. Like Stihl making a silver engine trimmer with platinum core plastic string for $5K. The $200 one edges and mows weeds just fine. There are exceptions. Like dollar store knives which could be out performed by sharpened plastic picnic utensils.

The longevity of the tool and results of its work are almost purely from the talent and experience of the user.
