A long time ago I too sold Cutco products. I bought my first car, a 1974 Ford Maverick, used for $600, from what I made. Cutco products are really nice for those people that do buy them. What I'm saying is that everything is not for everyone. Think of it like a food dish ... They don't eat a lot of sushi in Nebraska and/or Oklahoma. You could consider Cutco knives as a nitch item. I'm still friendly with many of my old customers.
e.g.: "Paulie Walnuts"
Kad ... just as a thought here ... the post before yours was eight(8) years ago. I like this thread too though, so I'll also play along. I find it insulting when people tell me that I should make dishes a different way (theirs). I am greatly insulted when people salt my dishes before tasting. People should shut-up about telling anything about wearing my "whites" anywhere. I have many more colored chef coats than white anyway. I'm honored when other chefs eat in my...
Don't worry about it. Culinary school is a great thing. Shoot ... I went to one and I'm not all that screwed up. Just do understand too though how correct a statement it is to not expect to get a TV show real quick. I've said it before I'm sure, that I love the benefits of experience as much as anybody. At the same time, clowns that only have skill-experience that don't know the science of cooking/ingredients/styles are a problem too. That was the basis of why I...
However old the origination of this information may be ... the outcome is once again and will always continue to be the same. "Take all the time you want. Use however much effort you have. You can even die for whatever you believe in. You will never beat "BIG MONEY". "Big Money" thinks for what is now. "Big Money" has no concern for what will happen tomorrow. The politicians that are bought are all the same, "Where will the $$$ come from to keep me elected?". On the...
I'm not all so sure that recommendations from the top-pro biggest names of an industry are all that useful for regular lunch-bucket blue-collar working-stiffs. They are who they are and you and I are who we are. Having big dreams and seeing the world through rose-colored glasses is real fun and easy for 13-14 year-olds, but most all of that is a far far cry from the real world.
Well ... I'm thinking "light-weight cast-iron" sounds like a goofy combination, but what the heck. Tramontina usually gets good reviews from what I remember. It's only $30. Why not?
The reviews you read on CKTG are all just fine. Buy the knife that you like and want, not what someone tries to sell you.
