    CostCo last night - sale price - set (SET) of knives $13

    Any good? No clue - tempted, you bet ... I resisted and got a hot dog instead.

    Size - Chef is 8in / Santuku 7in.

    Costco Wholesale

    First gut reaction is no because you get what you pay for. On the other hand costco has good products and if they suck a even better return policy.

    So might be worth trying:confused:

    Spend the money on great blades and you'll not have to buy them over and over for life and have mediocre cutlery...

    I bought a Cutco set cuz my mom was selling them when I was making great money and I've never been sorry or bought another kitchen knife. Life long warranty and sharpening - I had someone set a dish on a chefs knife and break the tip off and they replaced it for free.

    There are other good brands but the whole buy once, cry once applies to all knives;).

    I second the “you get what you pay for”. On the other hand, they will probably give you tremendous value at that price and last a couple years.Product description says wear resistant coating, which means they’ll probably stay relatively sharp. What do you have to lose at that price?

    I have a cuisineart bread knife that has lasted about 5 years and still going strong. Personally, I like high quality kitchen knives made of strong Japanese steel with a balance of good edge retention and ease of sharpening, but they can cost about $100-$180+ each.

    Hard to tell from a pic but they look better than cheapo entry-level and they have been vetted by the Costco product evaluators.

    Might be a good "stocking-stuffer" or party gift at Christmas, as well.

    Doesn't look like anything one would see in Idaho.
    OK to dream, though.

    I've got a drawer full of kitchen knives. Cheap ones, and not so cheap ones. They all work the same in a kitchen atmosphere. Keep 'em sharp, and if they are not Dollar-Tree fall-aparts, they will likely last longer than you.

    Would be a good hunting/camping set for taking out to the boonies imo for a cheap General knife set for cooking.

    Or maybe not... I carry enough knives on me to outfit a squad lol;):D

    My Dad got that set, seems to work fine and they can take an edge so thats good! My Baby Bro put a real edge on um and so far they have remained sharper then I would have thought!
    I run H.K. Dick and Hinkel German Knives, they are unbeatable, but EXPENSIVE! Buy once Cry once!:D

    Chinese food is known for being pre-cut up for you, everything being eaten with chopsticks.
    America is known for Bowie knives.. be a good American.

    We own 2 CutCo Knives. One was a gift: The Cleaver ( ducks/geese etc) and the Cheese Slicer.
    I highly recommend the latter.

    I have a couple of Twins - Zwillilng J.A. Henckels (Chef 8in & Slicer 8in )
    One JA Henckels - 12 in slicer scalloped (great for the holiday bird / roast )
    And, a couple Wusthof (Classic) (Chef 6in & santuko )
    And some off-brand bread slicer which rarely gets used.
    We have 4 pairing knives as they get used frequently.


    I am in the market to replace a couple of ceramic knives (see other thread)

    I think I would have bought the set if I wanted this size. I want 5in santuko & 5in chef-ish mostly for veggie prep
    and since I have larger blade lengths already.
