I've seen this in the last year or so, and I think they're from Chinese sellers. So, what Jamey said. :-)

They're usually described as "hammered", but translations can get lost along the way. And perhaps also because the casual buyer wouldn't be as familiar with the term "knapped".

May I ask where you found yours? I really like them.
