I do not have this knife but do have many hand made Japanese knives, and considering the price of these knives it is not important whether the hammering is by hand or machine or even a monkey from a local zoo if the knives are sharp and nice to handle it is a good deal. The reviews indicate they are sharp and nice to handle so as mentioned a good deal in my eyes

These looks pretty awful, IMO. Attempting to imitate traditional Japanese knife-making hammering, this company decided to use a perforator measured so that the hole puncher didn't go through.

Thats not hammered... thats a punch, some poor person has to stand at a work bench and dent a sharper knife than he has at home so that whomever buys these can see fake craftsmanship. Well done consumer class.

Gonna go ahead and say that it was probably a machine. I highly doubt these were hand hammered.

Producing a proper hammered surface is an art that takes many years to master. See this write-up on tsuiki in a completely different context: https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/the-casio-g-shock-hammer-tone-mrg-g10000hg-9a-in-gold-celebrating-20-years-of-mr-g
Unfortunately these knives look like they are the recipient of random hammering and end up looking pretty artless.

I bought this knife last time and I'm pretty sure it is more expensive this time around?

Might have been mentioned, but not damascus, real or fake. Laminate steel, one steel on each side with a different steel in the core and it's edge so they are not folded together. Also the line near the edge would be from differential hardening using clay to make a very hard edge and softer spine. Not sure if this is actually differentially heat treated or not though.

I have a number of Shun knives like this, and was looking for a smaller knife and I saw this drop and figured for the price even if it was only OK it would still be better than the crap you can get locally. The blade itself is on par with my Shuns after a few weeks of use. I am not a fan of the aesthetics of the hammered Damascus part, looks cheap and crappy compared to my Shuns.
For the price - would I buy it again. Yes. If I wanted something to go with my Shuns, it'd buy a Shun.

The description mentions v gold only and any attempts to refine a search seem to come up empty ....however this is a light Damascus fold .....there are not more than 30 layers....this seems to be a softer nickel 10 ply outer shell with a ........V GOLD Center.....v gold center to me means VG-10.........Takefu manufactures the blanks for ....many Japanese artisans some of the biggest names around>>>>>>>

VG-10 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia;Not to be confused with VG-1(steel).VG-10 is a cutlery grade stainless steel produced in Japan. The name stands for V Gold 10 ("gold" meaning quality), or sometimes V-Kin-10 (V金10号) (kin means "gold" in Japanese). It is a stainless steel with a high carbon content containing 1% Carbon, 15% Chromium, 1% Molybdenum, 0.2% Vanadium, 1.5% Cobalt, and 0.5% Manganese.[1]The VG-10 stainless steel was originally designed by Takefu Special Steel Co. Ltd.,[2] based in Takefu, Fukui Prefecture, Japan (the former cutlery/sword-making center of Echizen). Takefu also made another version: VG10W, which contains 0.4% tungsten.[citation needed] Almost all VG-10 steel knife blades were manufactured in Japan. More recently, Kizer Cutlery, in China, has been making their prolific 'lower cost' knives ($50 - $125) with VG-10 blade steel.VG-10 was originally aimed at Japanese chefs, but also found its way into sports cutlery. Spyderco has also produced some of its most popular models from VG-10[3] and Fällkniven uses laminated VG-10 in many of their knives.[4] VG-1 (steel) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia;VG-1 (also known as V Gold 1 steel) is a high Carbon (C) Molybdenum (Mo) stainless steel manufactured by Takefu Special Steel Co.,Ltd.[1] It is not the same steel as VG-10.VG-1 has a Carbon (C) content between 0.95-1.05 %, Chromium (Cr) content between 13.0-15.0 %, Molybdenum (Mo) content between 0.2-0.4 % and contains less than 0.25 % of Nickel (Ni).[2] During forging, Mo and Cr form hard double carbide bonds, which help improve the abrasion and corrosion resistance of the steel.[3] It is usually heat treated to reach hardness of 58-61[4]Knife retailer Cold Steel markets a variety of knives that use VG-1.[5] Cold Steel claims that VG-1 has better sharpness, edge retention, point strength, shock and strength characteristics than 440C, VG-10, or ATS 34 stainless steels, though any of those alloys may be better than VG-1 in individual categories.[6] There have been reports that VG-1 might be more chipping prone than other comparable stainless steels, but these reports have been disputed.[7]VG-1 is also used in hairdresser's scissors, kitchen knives and blades for food-processing machines.

Very often, when you see "V Gold" it's actually VG-5 or a derivative. But who knows with this one.
How many folds there are in the damascus cladding really doesn't matter, unless it runs the aesthetic for you.
