Well, yeah, Andy. Multiple uses, toaster springs, wheel covers.....

I've never heard of 301 before this thread.

Thanks guys. Ended up getting the knives and they're great. They even came with a sharpener. I'm pretty happy with Wolfgang Puck's knives.

Dina,
I agree with College Cook, any endorsed product has to pay for the chef's recommendation. If the knives feel good, I'd check the manufacturer on the box and verify if they make the same product with their own brand.
I have a set of Cutco knives that work nicely on most cooking applications, and use Laguiole and Oneida for eating (both very nice and comfortable).

Cook's Illustrated did a Chef's knife assessment in April, they recommend the Victorinox Fibrox 8" as Best Value ($ 23), with the Glestain Indented Blade ($ 210), Kershaw Shun ($ 194) and MAC 8" Superior ($ 55) having all top performance. Of course, if you have $ 475 handy, you can have the Kramer Chef's knife, handmade in Olympia, Wash.
Perhaps is worth trying the Victorinox and if it is comfortable, look for the set.
I hope this info helps you.

I know several people who have them, and like them. They paid about $30.00 Cdn for them. I bought my last knife on the internet, (Henckel Twin Cuisine), and when delivered, it was razor sharp.

I'm glad you like them. Isn't it a pleasure to prep dinner when you are working with great, sharp knives!

How many knives in your set? What kind of sharpener did they give you?

I got a set of four Wolgang knifes for Christmas (in a block) from my DH and I love them. Use them all the time. He got them for a song at Costco.

I bought all our Puck items at Sam's club for a good price.The knives are great, hold their edge and my hubby{a Toolmaker} says they are forged.My boy tried to hack at some wood and broke a small chunk off the tip of the big one .I never throw them in sink with everything else-that is really bad for the edges.
