Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

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

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

Nope. Good quality & stay really sharp. They've been around awhile, and if you get a blade with the double d edge, they'll factory sharpen it for you lifetime.

I've got 4.

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

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.

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

Thanks for the comments, guys. It seems like a decent knife and all but they sure don't make it easy to buy one, huh?

Maybe I'll just go with another Henkels.

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

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.

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

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.

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

Cutco makes good knifes but they are not worth the price. We have a parring knife that has a few chips missing off the blade.

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

Let me throw in a new wrinkle. My wife and I have a 20year old set of Gerber's. We also have the odd Wusthoff. The Wusthoff is easier to sharpen but the Gerber holds an edge better.

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

Well, I bailed on the Cutco and went with a Wusthof. Jeez is that thing sharp! I've always been either a Henckels or Wustof fan, so I stayed with what I'm familiar with.

Material and build quality is high and I'm sure it's another knife that my kids will be able to use too - as in passed on to them after I'm gone.

It even came with a free bamboo cutting board, woo-hoo!

Thanks for the help,
Jon in American Fork

Re: Cutco Knives. Anyone Have One?

Had my Cutco's for 5 or 6 years now. Mom and dad have had theres for 20 years. The only thing that really ever needed sharpening was the steak knives. I did those myself by hand.

Honest to goodness I think I prefer kitchen knives a little on the dull side. I get cut to often when they are freshly sharpened.

Oh yeah, and if you take your time you can absolutely STEAL a good set of knives off of eBay 1 by 1
