I'm looking at getting a Cutco Santoku knife for the kitchen. I've recently read where they are pretty good stuff for the home, without going crazy expensive. Does anyone have a Cutco knife that can comment on quality, durability, etc?
Anyone who wishes they DIDN'T buy one?
Thanks in advance,
Jon in American Fork

Dad has the hunting model serrated one and Mom had a set from when they were in College, about 45 years now. I have one that Mom gave me as a present, long serrated edge model, about 10-12 years ago. They are all still sharp AFAIK and rarely if ever have been sharpened. All still work and look good. They do last a lifetime.
Never go wrong with Henkels, how long does it take to sharpen a knife, I have a set of Henkels now that are 20 years old at least. They get used and abused every day. Every one of my knifes will shave you like a razor blade. I sharpen before every use. The only thing I have replaced in my set is the steel shapening rod, the cup after five to ten years. I am on my third steel. Replaced free.

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
I have looked at Cutco but the price keeps me from buying them. You can get a great set for less than 1/2 of the Cutco with Henkels or even Victorinox. Got to Smokey Mountain Knife Works as they have some good deals.
