Are these genuine hammered Damascus or is the look-alike Damascus that's mass/machine produced?

No, you are not getting hand forged damascus for $60. Yes it really is pattern welded steel.
The 5 inch santoku option is not listed. Is it already sold out or is it missing by accident?
theMZA
It's missing on purpose I believe. The 5-inch Santoku hasn't been available the last few times this drop has been active.
Hey Massdrop, are the other clever options gone. I only see the vegetable clever available now ?
Hey Massdrop! Why isn't the 5" Santoku listed in the ordering options?
There is no option for the 7 inch vegetable cleaver when I go to join the drop???
so from my understanding, this is still considered san mai construction (3 layers)?
And 67 layers mean, vg10 core, and one 33 layered steel forged together on each side?
How does this differ in terms of edge retention when compared to the 3-layer forged?
Or is it purely aesthetics?
MarcusK
The extra layers are purely for looks. Only the inner core counts for the "edge" if it's san mai. The many layers in the outer steel account for the pattern (pattern welded). This could STILL be a solid pattern welded blade and not san mai. Still not sure how they folded to get 67 layers. Doesn't really add up, even if they did san mai.

thanks for the replies!
Why is the Santoku not available to choose under Join Drop?!?
To Massdrop people...
Why is this drop or any kitchen knives drop, cannot be delivered to Israel ???
What the fuck? The price doubled since last time! The 7" Vegetable knife was $32 now it's $65! Can't justify it now. Oh well...

You're probably thinking of this drop where the 7" vegetable knife was $32.99:

Yup. That's correct.
Could anybody tell me how much the base price for this drop was?
Doopywoopy
It was $64.99 at the time you asked, but this current drop has lowered it to $59.99.
Massdrop-guys, why the santoku knife is not in option list when I'm joining? Can you fix it?
Once again, the 5 inch santoku is shown on the drop page as an option, but not available when i go to join the drop. This same thing happened last time and I notified mass drop of the inaccuracy. How does it not get fixed next time the drop goes live??? It's annoying, because that is the only knife shown that i want to purchase.
Is this another one of those cheap Chinese made knives, using a Japanese steel?

Does japanese use chinese steel?

I have several Zhen knives and they appear equivalent to Japanese made Shun knives in everything except price. From what I’ve heard in the knife community, Zhen may use a slightly superior and less brittle heat treatment for their blades.
