I haven't heard of them. Who sells them?

I never heard of them either. If you don't want to pay the premium prices for the big name brand hooks there are quite a few off brand, but very good chemically sharpened, hooks available at some of the larger fly shops. The "Trout Shop" in Merced. CA is one that comes quickly to mind.

A buddy of mine uses Allen hooks. Today he gave me a size 28 fly that was working and I landed a 17" brown on it. No complaints here.

Posts: 1I contacted the seller who stated they are manufactured in South Korea. I purchased some and they are as good as the name brands. But the price is better. I do believe some of the top brands are manufactured in China.

Since China has loosed up its grip on its own citizens traveling, wealth has reached global standards, and the internet is there, Chinese people are expanding business either direct (via global shipping) or with middle men/distributors/contact people here in the US. Lots of fishing tackle, among other things, has hit the internet markets here in just the last few years. Quality may certainly vary, but China is of course producing high quality products. Quality is always an open question but it be that one can buy direct, side-lining the usual US distributors.

Be that as it may, I'll generally stay with Daiichi for now. Their 1120 and 1130 emerger hooks are very sticky, at least in my experience. I recently had a discussion about this with a guide and good friend who is of the same mind. These hooks have a little offset that seems to hook and hold very well, even in the small sizes. I use a few Tiemcos also, and am trying some Allen barbless nymph hooks for next year.
