Pros: Lightweight, well built, rarely needs sharpening, good value!
Cons: Factory sharpening takes more time than I'd like.
My husband purchased this knife, along with 20 other Cutco pieces, in Harrisburg, PA. It's been 5 and 1/2 years and it remains my favorite knife. I use it for everything (except to hang pictures on the wall). It's comfortable in my hand so lots of prep work is no burden. The blade has been factory sharpened only once in 5 years. It took about 2 weeks for the entire process. Customer service from Cutco is ALWAYS a pleasant experience, which is SUCH a bonus these days. While expedient, I didn't like being without the knife for 2 weeks. We now sharpen them in-house.
Among his many other skills, my husband is a skilled knife sharpener so he makes sure they are ready to perform. As for problems with Cutco's, there are two. The first is that they are so sharp, they don't simply cut, they cut off. An accident with a Cutco can leave you missing a digit or two. (Hasn't happened to me yet but I've come close a couple of times). The second problem, which is really a testament to how good they are, is that if I don't keep a close inventory on them, they tend to disappear.
