Cutco

Has anyone had experience with Cutco knives?

I use Cutco knives, and I really like them. I invested a lot ( I seem to have a lot of young friends who sell them!) but they're great -- and the warranty is excellent. There are a lot of trendier knives out there right now, but I still love my cutco knives (and scissors). :)

Wat too pricey. You can do lots better.

I don't think they're a good value for your $$

Nothing special, they are garuteed for life and made in the USA, but that's about it. As stated, you can do better.

Sorry, babyzfaboo.

My experience is pretty limited with Cutco, but I'll share it anyways. While "between jobs" I was invited to an interview to sell Cutco knives. I stayed for the seminar, but decided selling them wasn't worth my time. For the price you'd pay, you'd be better off to buy Henckels or something of that calibre.

i don't have a LOT of experience with cutco knives, but one thing's for sure...

I HATE THEIR HANDLE DESIGN!!!! i've got big hands and that tiny handle is too small for me.

It has been a while since I've logged in, but I'm back. :) After HS, I sold Cutco for one summer and kept my starter set. I love them because they fit my hands well and are very sharp...sorry black chef. The downside, is i have to find a sales rep to sharpen them and I feel bad when I can't give him referrals for sharpening my knives. They are overpriced so I don't know anyone who would invest in them. One is probably better off buying other brands like Henckels.

About 10 years ago, DH gave me a set for Christmas. His parents got a set for a wedding present in 1959 and still use them, so he thought they would be reliable I love them - the handle fits me perfectly and they do almost everything I need them to do. I just need to get a boning knife. When they need sharpening, I take them to the butcher at the grocery store.
