Cutco is the absolute best kitchen product of its type. If you don’t own some of them, immediately find a way to buy them.

I bought my first Ka-Bar hunting knife in 1953 and it is still in good condition. Have been using Cutco utensils and knives since 1962. They honor their lifetime warranty!

I went into the Visitors Center just to look. Two ladies were in attendance and showed me what knifes I was interested in. Came away with two and at very reasonable price. Would highly recommend it for anyone interested in quality knifes,
