I have both 8" and 10" Shun chef knives and I think they are excellent and extremely sharp.

I have a "hunting" cutco knife and wasn't that impressed with the durability of it. I switched back to my Buck knife pretty quick. I will say that it is easy to sharpen and will get very sharp! Didn't hold an edge that well and didn't do well cutting through tough areas of the animals.

I have their filet knife and have been pleased with it. The extendable blade is a pretty cool feature.

I use one of these for just about everything in the kitchen, then wrap it in cardboard and take it to the ranch when I go hunting. It was a gift from one of my buddies for standing in his wedding and it was a good gift. Steel it every now and again and be careful not to cut yourself.

I like the cheap ceramic kitchen knives, there is a Cutco store in Frisco, I'll have to stick my head in and look at them

This is the brand I have switched to for cooking needs. Great knives for the price.

I've got this one with the orange handle and serrated edge I'd sell for $75 shipped. Brand new, never used.

My wife bought a set of those over priced knives and cuts her self every time she uses them. Shop around

I have a kitchen set - over 15 years now. Steak knives are great. Long blade serrated for slicing still work fine. Butcher OK - I just need to sharpen it. Bread knife great. Paring knife - so-so. They did replace a steak knife for free when the handle melted a bit after contact with a hot skillet. Shears are incredible - we have two. I use Henckles for trimming my game meat though. Cutco for everyday kitchen use works fine for us.

Just go to Ace Mart Restaurant Supply. There's a few around Houston. Get you some of the Dexter-Russel knives for the kitchen. Lots of butchers and chefs use them. Much better price than Cutco.

chicago cutlery high carbon steel with wood handles were the best knives I had for dressing out elk/deer.

fast and easy to sharpen and hold an edge pretty good. best thing is they are priced right.
I carried an 8" chef/8" carving/6" boner in a custom sheath with a 4" stone pocket.

sharpen them on about 30* and they will do the job well.

I have some Old Hickory kitchen knives. They are ancient and pretty badly tarnished and that's OK. They cut. Not so with the stainless steel knives.

I built my Grandson a high carbon steel skinning knife. He killed a deer and took it home to dress out and package. My daughter thought she would help him. She got out her expensive stainless steel knives and started trying to help. She called the next day and wanted me to make her some cutting knives instead of what I call high priced "looking at" knives. Grandson was slicing through meat and she was having to pull her knives through. I told her I would but in the meantime go to Amazon and buy a 5 knife set of Old Hickory knives for about $50. She did and called later to say that she didn't need for me to make any knives. She wound up buying about 10 high carbons. They need to be hand washed and dried to keep rust off but that's no big deal.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

I love mine. I received this one as a gift for Christmas. I already had one identical and I had intentions of sending it back and never did. I don't figure I need two.

I love all my CutCo knives. I keep a pair of shears and the 4" in paring knife in my hunting pack. The 4" paring actually works great on game. I have cleaned many hogs and deer with it. And all the knives in the kitchen are great.

I'm in the Old Hickory camp. I still have an Old Hickory 8" slicing knife that was part of a five-piece set my wife and I got for a wedding gift 35 years ago. It is the best knife in my kitchen!

I don't own one but a buddy of mine has the serrated edge hunting knife from cutco. Its an older one from the 70-80's I think. The thing is INSANELY SHARP! Makes quick work of gutting and quartering.

Where would be the best place to pick up a set? Price wise.

I have the serrated hunting knife and serrated boning knife. Both gifts from my wife. The hunting knife is the first knife I could skin and cut up a jumbo size alligator with a single knife and not stop to resharpen. But it does have a thin very sharp tip that would break if it caught in a bone joint and will easily punch through a hide or your finger if not careful. Out in the field hunting away from camp I carry one of two buck knives. At camp my buck knives are only for the tough work cutting the joints, bone, ect. Or anywhere near my fingers. The tips already broke off those years ago and reshaped and sharpened. The cutcos I use for everything else like skinning, final quartering, deboning. Fish cleaning I use two dollar retired used commercial fish cleaning knives.

Cutco is one of those things like Tupperware or Mary Kay. Sold by individuals through a pyramid sales scheme. Probably overpriced and better out there for the same money. I personally would not have bought a first one to try, but admit the serrated hunting knife is my #1 knife now and I have several other brand knives I no longer use.

My wife bought mine helping a distant young relative of hers who learning the ins and outs of salesmanship had to pay for their own demonstration knives.

With the easy repair and sharpening programs I would have no need to buy another other than maybe the non serrated versions of what I have. To be honest. If not received as a gift, I would only buy mine used off eBay before I would pay the high retail on these.
