Knives

Postby TX1911 » Wed Nov 09, 2016 11:11 am

During our competition, my carving set was misplaced. So, I've been scouring the internet for a budget friendly replacement. Didn't want to go full bore until I know for certain my Wusthof set is gone. So, I stumble upon the following:

Price was right, set looks good. As an added bonus, it comes with a free chef's knife (below).

Can't speak to the quality as they arrive tomorrow, but I thought I would pass this along, with the holidays around the corner!

If you do order them, you have to add that chef's knife to the cart, then when you check out, the price will be taken out of the total.

I can almost swear I saw a set just like that at a local Ross store. It was about half the price. I vetoed it though as it just didn't seem right. I went with a Henkel set instead. I just recently got my Mundial set replaced. I had one way back when but left it behind trying to flee from a crazy woman.

That one. It is fantastic!

Well, I finally had a chance to look them over. I'm prefacing this by mentioning that the carving set was $37.99 and the chef's knife was free (but retailed at $29.99). So I'm not expecting these to be, say, Shun knives. I'll be happy if they stay sharp and cut well.

That being said.........

On my first impression, I'm actually impressed, which surprised me. I expected a knife that would have a decent edge, but one that would need at least some honing. I was pleasantly surprised. These suckers are sharp!

I also had expectations of a lack of ergonomics and heft. Again, surprised on both accounts.

Time will tell, as with all products, of course. But so far, I am very happy.

I'm going to put them through the ringer today for actual functionality, so I'll find out more shortly and, like it or not, will put up some more thoughts.

The "free" chef's knife - really good weight to it and well balanced

The Carving set - fork's pokey and the knife's sharp. Bout all you can ask

Alright, so following up.

I only used the carving set today. The fork is, as I said a fork. It poked things well. The carving knife was about what I expected. It's a little more unwieldy than, say, my brisket knife (14" mundial) but it did the job and it did the job well. After slicing the sausage, chicken, turkey and ribs, there was no noticeable difference in sharpness.

For a budget knife, I'm more than happy!

Good deal! I bought a "budget" slicer/carver once and ended up needing to replace it before too long. It was incredibly unbalanced, especially being full tang, didn't sharpen well and didn't hold an edge past 2 uses.

I bought my good carving knife from Harrods in London about 15 years ago. It's been my fave knife up til a month or so ago, my wife bought a cheap one but its nice n light and has good steel. I'm favouring that at the moment.

It costs nothing to be nice. A smile goes a long way.
