Henckels Pro "S"

I was at B,B&B yesterday and sitting on the bottom of the locked knife case was a set of Henckles Pro "S" Santokus...an 8 inch and a 4 inch. They were marked 50% off the lowest marked price...which was $139.99. They rang up at $129.99, so I got them for $64.99...good deal?

They will be replacing my Faberware Santokus.

The clerk was a little freaked that I found them before she did. She said if she had known about it, she would have set them aside for herself.

The packaging was torn and dusty. Probably the last of a shipment, didn't see any others like it.

Not a bad score if it's for both knives! Incidentally, while I'm not a big fan of santokus I do find the 4"/5" size is extremely handy, and better overall than the more commonly seen "petty" or utility knife.

I have Henckels Pro S knives and they are a great tool in the kitchen. You won't be disappointed.

Great snag! A few years ago the Linens & Things here went out of business and we were able to pick up several at 40% off. We watched as the prices kept going lower and lower until they finally shut the doors. I kinda kicked myself for not holding off, but you never know what might have been sold out.
