In an article that is being widely shared on social media, Australian blogger and blogger Chris Reeves of Knife-Babe.com shared the best Australian made cheap knives on Amazon.com.
“These are the cheapest knives in the country,” he said.
“I’m sure there are some more that are better but these are the top ones.”
But what exactly is the best price on the cheap?
It’s all about quality, according to Reeves.
“It’s the quality of the blade,” he told the ABC.
“If the blade is bad, the quality isn’t going to matter.”
But if you’re looking for a good price on an Australian made knife, there are many alternatives on Amazon, he said, including the Chinese-made Chinese-sharpened blade, which is cheaper than the American-made blade.
“The Chinese-style blade, you know, the Chinese is the knife, the knife’s the handle and the handle’s the steel,” he explained.
“And the Chinese knife that’s on Amazon is about a 50 per cent cheaper than an American-style knife, because they have a better blade.”
“But it’s the blade that matters, right?”
It is, however, the blade’s finish, and how well it is made, that counts, he added.
“When you buy a good knife that you can’t beat anywhere else, it’s going to be a little bit cheaper than you’re used to.”
Australian designer of cheap knife ‘dislikes’ over price, says blog article One of the most common comments on Knife-babe.co.nz was that a lot of the cheap knives that are sold on Amazon were made by Australian-based manufacturers.
“Yeah, there’s a lot,” he responded.
“Not just that there’s more of them, but a lot more people like them than people like American-based makers, right?
I don’t think people like those knives.”
“I hate it when people get all upset about price because they don’t have the experience or the skill to make them,” he continued.
“But when they can just do the basic tasks and pick up some of the finer things, that’s what they like.”
Australian knife maker says he ‘couldn’t make it’ if it wasn’t cheap article A recent article on the blog of Australian designer and blogger Kevin Sorenson said that he could not make it if it weren’t cheap.
“We make our knives in our shop in a small studio with only the basics and basic materials.
This is the price that our customer base would pay for their knife, which isn’t cheap at all.” “
In the US, we sell our knives at a price point that is well over $US30,000 per knife.
This is the price that our customer base would pay for their knife, which isn’t cheap at all.”
It was only at this price point, Sorenssons comments were made, “that we could make these knives.
It’s not easy.”
The article goes on to say that he’s been making knives since 2001 and that he is the sole owner of his shop and the only employee.
“You’ve got to make the knife in the studio and you’ve got no control over the finish,” he wrote.
The article is being shared on a number of forums, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, where many of the commenters are outraged at Sorensens actions.
“My knives are cheap and I couldnt make it with them,” one user wrote on Twitter.
“This is just ridiculous,” wrote another.
“Kevin Sorens knife is really the only cheap knife that makes sense.
We need to stop cheap knives being made by American manufacturers.
They are making so many cheap knives.”
Another wrote: “It saddens me that we are paying this price to make cheap knives, but Kevin Sorens knives are a great example of a good quality knife.
He has worked his whole life to make a knife that has a better cutting edge, and this is one of the reasons why we like him so much.”
“If Kevin Sores knives were a dollar each, I’d probably buy them,” another user said.
But many others disagreed.
“There are so many better quality knives, and the price is way too high, especially when you consider how much time and effort they have to make,” one commenter wrote on the Australian site.
“They’re just not cheap.”
However, we would be looking to buy a cheaper, more versatile knife, and Kevin Sofords knives would
