New Chicago Cutlery knives are nothing at all like the old. Until the late sixties they only marketed to meat cutters. If you wanted a CC blade, you either were a butcher or got your knife from one.

Through the seventies and mid eighties they marketed American manufactured knives to consumers. Some were pretty good, some pretty bad. In the eighties the brand was sold to General Housewares and rapidly went downhill. Now the knives are poorly manufactured out of cheap materials by (mostly Asian) subcontractors. They make lovely gifts for people you dislike. Otherwise, avoid them like the plague.
