I checked it out. Thanks Dean. There doesn't seem to be a way to comment on it, I just wanted to say that I have to agree with you for the most part on Cutco. The knives are excellent. I have a friend who bought a set in 1963 that she was still using as of about five years ago. That's the good part. The bad part is, as you noted, the way they are sold. A friend of my son's was selling them and I bought one [one knife, that is, not a set] from him because he was such a nice kid and he was my son's friend after all. Then my son started doing it. I encouraged him because I didn't realize how impossible it would be for him to make any money at it and he needed a job, but it was indeed impossible. Of course, all his relatives bought because we love him, but once he'd run thru all of us there was nowhere to go, because the knives are so expensive that most people are not interested in the high quality. I was actually relieved when he decided to stop. Then last year I got a call from an acquaintance who was selling them. I felt bad for her because she is not a kid but a grown woman about my age. She must be really desperate to be doing this.
