    Japanese brand but made in china which is normal. A reply on first comment seem like legit company rep trying to explain J in the series or serial mean Japanese steel, but it was assemble in china to put on the handle?. Uh..huh, yep, sure. It sound like eating Sushi that is prep and sold in Chinese restaurant but fish are import from Japan (NO, it will never taste the same). Bottom line, with high end products that are made in Japan, you'll never see such deal $187 now $28.

    There are knives with decent (for the money, it's not a $200+ set) Chinese steel. In fact even the US, Germany, Switzerland, import steel.

    However these seem to have a soft grade of stainless that doesn't take or hold an edge well, making me wonder why they bothered to import it unless they could get better pricing.

    ^ Not all, for example there's 8Cr13MoV which is similar to Japanese VG-8. It's used by Spyderco, Kershaw, SOG, CRKT, et al. in their made in China knives and has even become the preferred "budget" steel, but you won't get a 10 piece set of cutlery in VG-8 for under $200 and you won't get it in 8Cr13MoV either.
