Pros: Very affordable. Handle gripy w/o being sticky.
Cons: Looks somewhat cheap.
One of the first purchases that my wife and I made after our wedding was a set of Faber-ware Pro kitchen knifes from the local Wally World. From day one they never seemed as sharp as they should be but they served us well (enough) for the past 5 years.
Finally I decide that if we were going to cook most of our meals at home we need decent tools to do it with. Enter my Victorinox 10inch Chefs knife.
The difference between my Victorinox (whom I have christened "Vicky") and the Faber-ware Pro is huge. I compare it to the difference between a Geo Metro and a New Ford Fusion. Both will get you where you want to go, one just does it much more comfortably. Also a Ford Fusion isn't the ultimate car one can buy. There are many nicer cars out there, just like how the Victorinox Fibrox knifes are a great knife until one can afford a MAC Pro or whatnot.
