I saw those, too, and almost bought some but since I don't know much about knives, I thought I'd see if anyone has any experience with these. Did you get them, Doc? I have 24 steak knives I got at a restaurant supply house (tramotina, I think) that were unbelievably cheap, which was what I needed at the time. I expected them to be very crummy and last only through the big BarBQ Ibought them for but surprisingly, they are really great. Still super sharp 6 or 7 years later. They have ugly plastic handles and look very institutional but they are just too good to throw away!
