    Knife Set Question

    So I'm having a Pampered Chef party next month and we need a good knife set. Pampered Chef has one but it's $400, granted I'm not paying that much (getting it for 60% off) but wanted to know if anyone has this and if its a good deal?

    Is there a better knife set out there for cheaper, that's good and will last?

    I've got an old but reliable set of Ginsu knives. Cuts through a nail, and still slices tomatos paper thin.

    That's a big surprise. Does it cut through a Snuggie?

    Re: Knife Set Question

    Seriously the Cutco knives we have are amazing.

    the best meat carver, best meat trimmer, best chef's knife, best scissors and best hunting knife I have ever owned. bought them 93'ish? still in great shape.

    -keep.

    Re: Knife Set Question

    I agree with keepngoal that Cutco has a good product. I've had my set for 10+ years and it's still sharp. I doubt if a set would be cheaper than Pampered Chef, though. Another brand that I like the paring knife, is Rada Cutlery. Be warned that the dishwasher will darken it's silver handle.

    A snuggie and a sham-wow, AT THE SAME TIME!

    My suggestion is to make the leap for a better product, not a cheaper product ... one that will last forever.

    -keep

    I would agree with this on any product we were to discuss here. It's always better to step up with quality.

    And Bubba, good news!
