  • Mom Knows Best!

    Mar 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The very best quality, durability, and warranty -- bar none!
    Cons: High Price (but then, so is a Mercedes). You get what you pay for!

    Summary: When I was a kid (I'm 32 now), there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't see a Cutco knife or two laying around the kitchen. I grew up on a farm and we used knives in the kitchen constantly for peeling and slicing fruits from the orchard, preparing ... read more

  • Cutco Essentials - Not enough bandaids in the house!

    Mar 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Stays sharp, looks good, great handle, balanced & good weight, nice looking.
    Cons: Very Sharp - handle with care, price

    Summary: I received this wonderful knife set as a gift almost a year ago. There are not enough words to describe the ease of use and quality of this brand. I have had other 'good' sets of knives, but I am no longer using anything other than my Cutco knives. ... read more

  • OK... I'm biased.

    Jul 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Best knives on the market
    Cons: ummm.... ? expensive

    Summary: I realize that I'm probably a very biased person and shouldn't write this review. I sold these knives for half a summer. I didn't do it very long, having gotten a better job and hating the "calling" part of the experience. However, I was truly won ... read more

  • Cutco will out last you!!

    Feb 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent Knife's, wonderful feel to them
    Cons: Can't think of any

    Summary: In 1963 as a young lad of 16 I and a few of my high school buddies joined up to sell Cutco knifes to make some extra money. We had to buy a "demo" set to show our customers and I paid $187.00 for the entire set. I sold Cutco for the last two years of ... read more

  • about the petite carver only

    Oct 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good for petite hands
    Cons: none so far

    Summary: My roommate used to sell Cutco so we had a whole set. I loved the petite carver so much that he let me have it for my birthday. Although other reviewers have said it's only good for smaller tasks, I have been using mine every day for every task. The key ... read more

  • Cutco Quality

    Oct 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: durable, excellent quality
    Cons: relatively expensive

    Summary: All of the Cutco products are made to last and function well under even adverse conditions. My set is well over 15 years old and still looks and cuts like new even after daily use and daily dishwasher treatment. Cutco stands behind its ... read more

  • A Sharper Knife is a Safer Knife!!!

    Jul 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: forever sharpness, no sharpening
    Cons: nothing

    Summary: Cutco provides without a doubt the best knives on the market. We recently purchased the Essentials set and couldn't be happier. They offer a Forever guarantee, so that any time these knives malfunction, we will be able to replace them for free. I ... read more

  • They last and last......

    Jul 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The best knife ever, unbeatable warranty
    Cons: You pay for it--but it is worth it

    Summary: Like a previous reviewer, I have sold Cutco in the past as well. Maybe it is better that to hear from someone who sold a product, especially if they believe in it. At the time I was trying to get a job, and Cutco came up in an ad, saying that you could ... read more

  • Sharpen your Wit

    Jun 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliable, quality, and sturdy...an investment
    Cons: I'm troubled to find any.

    Summary: Haven't we all known someone who got the bright idea one summer to sell knives door to door. And of course after hitting all of his friends up once or twice and asking each of them to direct him to another potential victim without much success, lo and ... read more

  • YIkes! Is there a money back guarantee??

    Apr 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: they are really sharp in the beginning
    Cons: have dulled after only five months of use.

    Summary: My MIL bought a set of these because the saleslady was the girlfriend of the son of a friend of hers...she said that they will never need sharpening, but the French knife and the paring knife are already duller than what I was using before. I can't slice ... read more

  • Slice and Dice

    Apr 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy and quick to use...throw away all other knives!
    Cons: Dangerous, very sharp

    Summary: My husband decided he wanted to make some extra money. So he took up selling Cutco knives. We got the starter kit and we were in business, although he never made much and soon gave it up, we got to keep the knives. One part of the ... read more

  • The best one in a wooden holder

    Mar 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The necessary knives in any kitchen
    Cons: Can get the same items for a lot cheaper

    Summary: There has been some concern from other members about the fact that my epinions of CUTCO products resemble each other. I feel that I am very qualified to write about all the sets and that much of the information is the same, since the quality of the ... read more

  • The best knives one can have

    Jan 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: They are the last knives you'll buy
    Cons: none so far

    Summary: My husband used to sell Cutco knives when he was in college, I used to go with him to some demonstrations and I always thought everything they were told to say was bull. But he was making money so we didn't mind selling them. He had to buy the Cutco ... read more

  • Knife didn't pare well

    Dec 20, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: handle feels good in your hand, light weight, attractive
    Cons: pricey, don't hold up under NORMAL wear

    Summary: my first experience with Cutco Knives came as a gift of a paring knife. I have had the knife 2 years. It cut well the first year I used it so when a friend of ours began selling Cutco knives I thought I'd see what else they had to offer. I was ... read more

  • Like Father Like Son

    Dec 20, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: They keep their edge for years.
    Cons: Must be sent away for repairs / sharpening.

    Summary: We recently had a demonstration of the Cutco Knives. What the salesperson lacked in knowledge, she definitely had in enthusiasm. It was not difficult to sell the product due to it's first rate appearance and quality. The demonstration included slicing ... read more

  • Cutco Cutlery

    Dec 20, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Thoroughly pleased with the products and service
    Cons: Rather costly, but last for a life time.

    Summary: I have had the pleasure of using these knives for the past five years. They have been used constantly during this time period. I am amazed at how well they hold an edge. This edge doesn't last forever and they have to be returned to the company for ... read more

  • Expensive, but worth it

    Dec 19, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: excellent quality
    Cons: very expensive

    Summary: I admit it. I only own Cutco because my daughter-in-law sold it and I wanted to help her out. I never would have paid that much for knives otherwise. However, that said, this is one of the best investments I ever made. I use them every day, have ... read more

  • Worth Every Penny

    Dec 19, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: durability, ease of use, very sharp!
    Cons: a little pricey

    Summary: These knives really are as great as the company claims. They perform beautifully even on challenging tasks: bread slices thin without tearing and tomatoes slice clean and crisp without bruising and juice dripping everywhere. The handles ... read more

  • Well Worth The Money

    Dec 19, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Holds their edge
    Cons: price

    Summary: We have owned a number of Cutco knives for more years than I care to remember. I'm sorry to say some of them have been kept in drawers with other metal utensils, most have been dropped on hard surfaces and not cared for like a good piece of cutlery ... read more

  • Everything You Need

    Dec 16, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: durable, sharp, last forever
    Cons: so sharp that you have to be careful

    Summary: I used to sell Cutco. Yeah, I did, and before you get all judgmental, I was 18, it was the only job I could get in Houston, and I made wicked good money doing it. I would work two or three hours a day and make between $70 and $100. And I'm not ... read more
