As an update I have just purchased a pair, and have t say they are amazing for the price; actually amazing anyway. The plastic tie at the bottom is a bit naff so I’ll make a leather one for them. The sharpness is astonishing and for broadleaf removal they are the ‘mutts.’ A hearty recommendation. They can be found here on eBay.
Just spotted these at £13.00. Cheap as chips, anyone tried a pair; wondered what they might be like. Prefer a Japanese carbon steel pair but hey ho these are cheaper.
