We have a set of Cutco, cost $500+, a relic of when my daughter thought she was going to be the world's best salesperson (15 years ago). They are great knives, and I get them sharpened by Cutco periodically for free.

They also replaced 2 at no cost. The scissors that came with the set also are great, will cut a battleship anchor chain.

But to add to the set is VERY pricey, with individual knives costing upwards of $300+.

Here is a SECRET: People are STUPID, and do not know the difference between a $100 knife and a Dollar Store knife. I have bought 10 + / - Cutco knives at Automotive swap meets, and a few a garage sales for $1 or so each. There are 3 different color handles, black, white and wood, and all but 2 have been the wrong color for our set, so I just drop them off at the local cutco store 2 miles away, have them cleaned and sharpened, Then they go off to ebay, and it is an easy sell. I just checked ebay, and there have been 5100+ sales of Cutco knives, so if shows the breadth of market.

A comparable set of Wusthof are significantly more expensive than Cutco comparing apples to apples. Cutco is one of the companies that make money on bulk/set sales. Great knives and even better customer service. The only thing I don't like about them is that they have to sharpen them due to the blade design.

If you need a $50 knife to cut a steak you're buying the wrong steaks.

I have Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin signature series and like them a lot.
If you want to go down the knife rabbit hole check out
A friend of mine is on this forum and has a small business making custom knife handles.

Never argue with a Moron. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

a good all around knife brand is ontario knife co.(made is usa) good steel to last a lifetntime.
Everyone should have at least one old hickory.
i got a wustoff sharpener with two crossed ceramic sticks after i use i run it through a few times and those victorinox will still shave you

Just over $300 for three knives, a pair of scissors and a Chinese-made ice cream scoop.

I've had my henckles probably 20 years. Just hit em with the hone every couple uses and take care of em. They've been great.

If I won the lotto, I'd want a Bob Kramer knife.

How they're made:


'68 Chevy plastic car
'69 Mustang ( The coupes are the fastest!)
'28 Roadster in boxes.

My wife has had Henckles for about 20-25 years & has a diamond hone knife sharpener to make sure they stay sharp. She loves them & will not buy any other brand.

We use nothing but Cutco here. Probably a good $3K worth.
Steak knives, kitchen knives, serving stuff, BBQ tools, scissors, etc.
Like others have said, we've found used Cutco items at antique stores
and flea markets for dirt cheap. Some we've kept and we've eBayed
some. (Hard to resist a $2 purchase and a $30 sale..... I'll do that all
day & all night)

Been buying Wusthoff Classic since I first received one as an Xmas gift in '95. Have about seven various knives now, might spring for the steak knives next year. Not cheap, but fantastic quality and they'll outlast me.
