To be honest, I often find Wusthoff and Henckels knives in the thrifts. I clean them up, too, and then pass them on, usually. I recently picked up a dozen Friodur JR Henckels steak knives for $3. Still in the box, wrapped in brown tissue paper (individually), with the original receipt from SOLINGER STAHLWAREN. New, in 1966, they were $2 apiece + shipping. Beautiful forged steak knives. They were bought as a gift.
