I have a set of Cutco basic knives and serving utensils DH gave me years ago. I eventually replaced the knives with Wusthof, which I like much better. They keep a sharp edge better.
Experienced cooks here advise buying only the knives you actually use, rather than a set. It's less expensive and you don't have stuff you don't use taking up space.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
