Hello There,

I was wondering if these knives: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/satadahasa18.html

Were handmade? What I mean by handmade is really spring hammer forged and hand forged vs. being spewn out of a machine and then just polished by hand. Also is this is a Stainless steel? What other knives do you have that are Stainless Damascus Santoku that are hand or spring hammer forged for around this price? Let me know!

Kind Regards,

Danie

No these are made in a factory so it's not a little blacksmith banging them out.
I'm really not sure what they do to make the hammer marks but the steel usually is supplied in blanks with the damascus cladding already done by a jobber.

These are stainless.

For that price you are not going to get much in the way of stainless, hand made knives in the way I assume you are asking. There are some cheaper carbon blades that you might consider like the Moritakas.
