Unfortunate quality

I bought two plane irons as replacement blades for my older Stanley bench planes. The irons are not expensive but that seems to be the only good quality about them. The package also nicely boasted that the irons were "Quality steel - Sheffield England".

Both irons arrived badly scratched as if someone had "keyed" them before packing. They looked awful. While I was not expecting precision ground blades, both irons have deep dents in the bevel which is something I did not expect. I will have to regrind the whole primary bevel to make the blades serviceable.

What worries me is that there is a sort of a bevel on the edge of the back of the other iron. Looks like someone has filed the edge off and has gone nearly to the cutting edge thinning the blade on one side. There is only little good cutting edge left. And while not substantial, the damage seems non-repairable. The only solution I can think of is to camber the iron. I honestly do not see why anyone would file the iron in such a way. Both irons have been randomly filed here and there and the filed spots feel very rough and jagged to touch. Whoever filed these irons either did not care what he was doing or simply did not know how to do it. In fact, it could have been better if he had not touched the irons at all. The edges of the irons are jagged and rough so I will have to be careful not to hurt myself when sharpening. (I will probably have to file the edges myself to be able to handle the blades...)

Compared to my older Stanley irons these two are absolute rubbish. I cannot in good conscience recommend them to anyone. They require comprehensive work before they can be used (and I am not talking about "a quick hone" here but a complete restoration of the blade). When I next require replacement irons, these blades do not even make the list of possibilities.

(Two stars for value because you do indeed get an iron for under ten quid.)

Horribly Vonvex backs make for alot of time flattening

Cheep yes but you pay with the amount of time and effort needed to make them useful. The backs are ground VERY convex (certain both of the ones I bought were anyway). If you value your time, spend a bit more for irons that are ground properly. Is it so hard to at least ground them a little concave if not flat??!!!
