8″ Allwin Damascus Pattern Chef Knife in Clad Japanese VG10 Steel Core for $29.99 Shipped from Amazon.

Another good VG10 based knife deal today. We’re partial to VG10 at the under $100 knife range because of its combination of toughness, hardness (HRC 62 Rockwell), fine consistent grain structure, edge retention, and relative edge of resharpening. It’s vastly superior to most German and American steels, especially at this price range. Moving up closer to the $200 range, there are more esoteric choices (ie. micro-carbide powdered steels like SG2, ZDP-189, Cowry-X, etc).

This one has an overall length of 13″, has an ergonomic pakka wood handle, and comes with a black gift box.
