Cutco quality? Login/Join

Hey all-

My in-laws have a set of Cutco knives that they paid over $1000 for. Well over, I think.

Are they that good? I tend to like old Gerber, Shun, and Henkels. In the same class?

I love mine, better then the Gerbers and China made Henkels.

The German made Henkels cooking/chief knives are better, but I like the Cutco steak knives better.


Keep Americans working, buy American made!

Cutco knives are really pretty ridiculously overpriced. Cutco Chef knives are stamped out of cheap 440A stainless steel. For the same price you could have a hand forged knife made my a Japanese master knife maker:

There is utterly NO comparison in cutting performance. And frankly you can buy Much less expensive Knives than the Anryu that are still far far superior to the Cutco.

Cutco knives are all about marketing way overpriced mediocre quality knives...........

Cutco is popular because of the Lifetime No Queations Warranty. I prefer my Shuns or Globals.

Buy them used for peanuts and then send them back to the factory. They'll come back like new, or replaced. Like Glock that way: they'll always work and get the job done and the company stands behind the product a thousand percent, but if you're going to spend a grand, there's classier ways to get the job done and get it done with better performance.


My wife used to sell Cutco a long time ago and we still have all the stuff she acquired from them. It's all dull as shit because she won't let me sharpen them and won't send them back to the factory, so that's where I'm at. I don't think they're all that great. The kitchen shears are next level, though, as is their pizza cutter and cheese knife. Of all the Cutco stuff we have, those get the most mileage. But two of the three aren't knives.

Cutco knives are mediocre knives with a good warranty. Very expensive for what they are. Spend your money elsewhere.
