Not a clue, but there's an old saying that you get what you pay for and those average less than $5 a piece. They may be stainless steel but not all stainless steel is hardenable.

I've seen those, or something exactly like them, Acorn Knives. Is the cast aluminum handle rather thin, like about 1/4-3/8 inch? They'll cut and are about 54 HRC and if you're lucky 56 hard. If you're thinking resale, make two bundles of $20 for one and $25 for the 5 knife bundle with the butter blade (best piece as it's unusual). Sharpen by hand and get a feel for how hard they are, if they feel like you are sharpening soft steel, give as gifts. I never recommend cheating anyone.

Thanks for the replies everyone. The handles thicknesses range from 5/16 to almost have an inch on the large butcher knife. I am thinking resale yes. The steel doesn't seem soft. I posted on ebay yesterday for $30 and they sold today, which now I realize is a bit under the prices you are mentioning. Overall I am happy with the sale and very happy for the help in identifing.

Thank you!
