Read the reviews on the Amazon website. One of the repeated comments was about the dangerous nature of the design.

Interesting concept though.

IMO, reviews from those that have not actually used something are, well, worthless.

Well I haven't used them myself so I guess there's no point in my saying more.

All I know is that for $700 I could buy a damned fine high quality knife block set and several more accessory knives at Bed, Bath and Beyond.

The worth of something is what someone is willing to pay for it!

I think the concept is great from a culture that lives in small quarters. Seems Japan is the new Sweden when it come to design! What gladdens me is the fact that you use them and find them really good. So often things that are SO convenient, are flimsy and "cheap", these look surprising and are quite expensive! What is the name of the product? "Neato"? and where on earth do you get them?

Thanks for the link.

Some of those reviews & comments on Amazon are hilarious.

I like this one

"You would think that for over $800.00 they could give you the whole knife and not cut the middle out of the dang thing."

Silly me! If I had read the Thread carefully I would have found my Info, not that I wanted one, but it just seemed so interesting! Seems that those who have bought the knives have found them really useful. Seems they have stirred our imagination!
