A side note is that Damascus can be faked, or basically acid etched into any steel, so cheap knives can seem to be made out of Damascus, but actually aren’t. The funny thing is that if you get two identical high carbon steels and layer one of them with another steel, like nickel or 15N20, to make real Damascus, and compare the two blades, the performance will be identical, the difference being aesthetic. A way to discern real and fake Damascus is that the real version will have a texture.

I’m not even close to an expert knife guy but I know a nice knife and I could have easily known which knife was more expensive. Definitely could’ve chosen better knives for this video

Rule #1 with cooking. DO NOT EVER BUY A $4 chefs knife. Ever. Don't compare a $4 knife to a $350 knife, that is just ridiculous.

The last one is truly beautiful, but how do you sharpen it? $3100 for a knife that lasts a year? Stupid.

Google "conical hand tool for sharpening a knife" - it's a lot of work, but I'm guessing that most people willing to spend 3100$ on a knife are also willing to spend that time sharpening it. There are also spring bar action sharpeners, which work on standard and serrated knives - most are pretty bad, but if you get a good one, it can save you a lot of time & effort (and look nice on a kitchen counter).

I think people look at the series the wrong way. It's not about having 2 knifes that only have a small diffrence in cost and try to ''challange'' the expert. It's about teaching the diffrence between a more expensive tool vs a cheap tool. And to give some information about knifes in general.

I guessed every single one correctly and I am such a moron about knives that I couldn't tell you the difference between a paring knife or a fillet knife. Why did we need an expert?

why so many dislike? it is a very interesting video hosted by a brilliant man, it very entertained me from the start to the end. for them that say that it was too easy to spot the expensive one, knife prices may vary from a lot of things, from materials to who made it, there isn't a real price range for handmade knives (that are the most expensive obviously) since every knifemaker gives the price he thinks is right for what he make, so it could be impossible to guess wich is expensive from two handmade knives. also if the video was just about guessing the most expensive it will be just 30 seconds of video, there was an expert because he must explain why it is more expensive

It's supposed to be "Cheap vs. Expensive Knives", i don't see anything about performance, only how it's made and which one is more expensive. What I would like to know, about Cheap vs. Expensive Knives, is if the price tag vs. performance, lifetime expectation of the knife, how easy the sharpening. Of course if a knife looking better it's more expensive, I think everyone know that. And also, don't compare a $3 knife to a $100 knife, use a average good kitchen knife set ($150-$200) to a high end knife set ($2000-$3000).
