Myerchin's new knife is sourced from China rather than Japan like the rest of their lineup, and so is significantly cheaper. China being China, of course the exact same knife immediately became available without the Myerchin branding through other channels.

I bought two of the generic version because I wanted a couple of serviceable utility knives to have handy on the boat -- one in the toolbox and one on a hook in the lazarette --, and for fifteen bucks I am amazed at the quality of what I got. For what they cost and what I am using them for I don't think it's a deal that can be beat, and I am not going to cry if I lose one over the side. I think I am going to get at least two more.
