I have a set of their steak knives purchased off Amazon. The handles are horrible, but the steel is pretty good and the unique shape forces elbows down, which is really handy for more confined seating. I would take a stab at these for this price if I didn't already have decent knives in those roles.

Chicago Cutlery used to make great knives with high quality steel before moving their manufacturer to China. Now they use 420J2 steel, inferior to x50crmov15 (used in typical German knives) and X55CrMo14 (used by Victorinox). http://www.zknives.com/knives/ste...x55crmov15

Typical complaints include rusting and poor edge retention. However, Chicago Cutlery knives are still decent knives especially for such a low price.

Yes, Chicago cutlery used to make awesome bang for the buck knives. Now Chicago cutlery knives are mediocre at best in quality and in value but this sale is OK.
The issue now isn't so much that they are made in China, it is like so many other products, that the name is now licensed out and it is made by and wholesaled by a number of companies. This is not uncommon practice. Nakamichi used to make the best tape recorders in the world. Now they are sold in KMart. Kitchen Aid used to make the best products in the world. Their models of their stand mixers offer some good value (and some models are poor quality), but the rest of their products are absolute garbage.

China makes a TON of crappy stuff. But they also make some of the worlds best, depending on who the parent company is that subcontracts them. Apple Phones, laptops, computers, headphones all are excellent build quality. Zojirushi, All Clad and other top names make some products in China and they are TOP NOTCH. Instant Pots are well made. Because the parent company insists on quality of it's subcontractor.Those same companies also insist on low pollution and humane treatment of workers. But except where the parent companies care, and the customers care, the subcontractor won't care, either.

And I certainly wouldn't be using 4110 and 4116 steel as "high quality" but it IS probably the best value for the dollar for the average American consumer.
You should also be aware that Victorinox uses 4116 in their forged knives and their outdoor knives, NOT in their rolled steel stamped lines like "fiberox". S&B makes their stamped blade steel and the Victorinox mix uses less Vanadium. Vanadium forms smaller, harder, tougher carbides so a miniscule more carbon is still a net loss of hardness and edge retention versus the steel in a Wusthof, Henckels or Messermeister. If you like fiberox, you'll LOVE the Wusthof pro series. LESS money better steel, better handle materials and better ergonomics. The fiberox IS a good value, but there are other FAR better knives for about the same price

I've only posted once or twice as I'm doubtful I have the levels of wisdom & experience as most folks here (and I mean that sincerely, I have learned so much from all of you). But I happened to be in one of our MD stores today and they had several paring knives in stock but at full price. I asked the cashier to price-match against Target.com, which he did - and the 15% off clearance kitchenware & tableware Cartwheel offer applied as well, at a total of $3.05 plus tax. So even if your local store hasn't marked down its inventory, you may still be able to purchase at the OP price (or less by adding Cartwheel). Maybe not a Henkel or Wusthof but a decent knife for $3.05.
