Have you heard of the kitchen knife brand Cutco? If you have, what's your favorite knife/tool? If you haven't......get some.

Not kitchen knives but outdoor and everyday carry I'm partial to SOG. My flash II has provided reliable loyal service for at least 4 years in my pocket everyday. Have two others that serve their purpose well. KaBar is my massive fixed blade for

What ever the wild brings. Almar, Emerson, Chris reeve, all beautiful knives but the price point is too high. I'm rough on my gear and would feel like babying those pieces. Just picked up an authentic higonokami though, work of art!

Cutco is absolute shit! I've held a job with that company, and left because I could not bring myself to sell their sub-par products to anyone. Do NOT buy Cutco!

I applied for a job with them and after their presentation I refused the job offer... Shady company

I don't like their business model. If the product was good, why not use traditional merchandizing? Something doesn't add up.

My Cutco has held up for over 20 years. I've had other brands & they fail after just a few years. Cutco stood behind their guarantee & sent me new knives when 2 of them were so worn they couldn't be sharpened (my fault for not sharpening sooner).

I like the sound the spatula thing makes.

Cutco is the best!!!! No way I could choose my favorite since they all have their purpose. We've had some for over 20 years. Others we bought a year ago. We got ones we would use, not just a set. The company stands behind their American-made product!

I should have known you would like the American made part!! Haha! I like that part, too! The sharpening and guarantee had me from the beginning n

And they really do stand behind the guarantee!! I sent some knives in to the factory for sharpening. I got a really nice note back with the box saying "we're sorry but we couldn't sharpen your knives. Here are brand-new replacements"!!!!!!!

I have a full set of Shun Classic knives from Japan. They are just amazing!

Yeah, hands down, those are the best knives in the market right now. I have a few of those too.

Yup! I won't use anything else. The Japanese blades have a smaller cutting angle than the German blades and use layered steel as well. I also learned how to sharpen them myself using wet stones 500, 1,000, then 6,000 grit. They are razor sharp!

I have about three grand invested in my kitchen knives. Is that bad? My wife thinks I'm nuts...

I even have steak knives, a set of 12, for guests, all in Shun.

The ken onion shuns are my favorite by far for the kitchen. Ergonomics with VG-10 steel, with a Damascus overlay, it's almost orgasmic. All others are just fine... Lol.

I would never hand a guest a shun, I can just see them grinding it on a ceramic plate. Ewe.

Yeah, I cringe a bit when we have guests over for dinner, but I can always quickly run them over the wet stones after dinner, right?

Haha, I have a cheap set from bed bath for guests. They're also less likely to hurt themselves. I've had three friends cut themselves at my house.

Cutco is a pyramid scheme.

They still make good knives, they also make KaBar knives that the Marines use.

They are a pyramid scheme. They prey on poor college students. And their knives SUCK when compared to Japanese or German knives.

I love my ka bar. Wouldn't want anything else. hands down the best fixed blade outdoor knife I've owned.

I was wholesale sales. I managed all the big box accounts and was in the trade show circuit. It was fun for a bit, but had no future.

Not really, just industry trade shows not open to the public.

I was a master seller a while ago. It was something fun to do on the side. Plus I got free knives from it.

Best set of knives I ever bought.

It has the four steak knives, chef knife, paring knife, serrated carving knife and a paddle-like spreading knife. My nephew was selling them so we bought the set. Think we paid little over $100 for them.

I just checked with my wife. I guess we paid almost $400 for them! And there are 5 steak knives, not 4.
Still well worth it, in my opinion.

I was about to say! $100 would be nice, but you're right, it is worth the higher cost.
