Are these the ones on QVC? Just curios because I ordered a knife from them just today, but I'm on a waitlist. If it's junk, I'll cancel.

There were 54 posts in that thread and one person spoke favorably about your knives. All the other posts repeated the same names - Henckels, Wusthof, Global, etc.

The thread asked for your favorites, not recommendations or critiques.

You get what you pay for in just about everything in life, and that certainly includes knives.

BUT, I do like my Ginzu knife that I got at the home show -- in fact, I then we have three or four of them. Great for slicing bagels, especially since I won't pay money for a serrated knife.

If a knife is cheap, run the other way. Not to say that I haven't bought cheap Victorinox paring knives and LOVE them. BUT a quality knife is a tool for a lifetime. I have a 12" (yes!) Henckels chef knife that I have had for 43 years now. I also have a lot of other different knives--I would never buy a "block". Some have been so sharpened that our adult son says, you have to respect a boning knife that is half its original size.
I'm sorry you got snookered. There are good knives to be had and at a discount. And especially without a lemon squeezer being "thrown in". Goodness. WHAT does a lemon squeezer or for that matter, a cookbook have to do with knives.

Uh, that's really funny that you linked to that thread as though it had the support for the Miracle Blade that Vagriller was looking for. That post was over a year ago and the guy who started the thread condemned the Miracle Blade later in the same thread that he started when he realized what crap they were.

In all fairness, the Miracle blade knife might go well in your tool box or tackle box as a decent all around utility knife.

The fact is, this thread actually had seceral members' opinions of the product. The other thread did not.

Well, the juicer came with it so that is what it has to do with it. The cookbook? Well, I ordered both at the same time so I guess I think about them arriving at the same time. Have a good day, I know I will.
