my parents got me one for christmas last year!
actually, they bought themselves the complete 'miracle blade' set, and gave me the extra 'miracle blade slicer' with offset handle. COMPLETE garbage! it's already showing some rust and i HARDLY EVER USE IT! (not that i would ever tell my parents that)
now whenever i visit my parents house i have to dig out their old forschner set (yes, it's a stamped blade, but it's still pretty decent). i won't use their 'miracle blade' set. the 'rock and chop' (santoku blade) weighs about as much as a leaf of paper. the 'chop and scoop' (cleaver) weighs even less. i kept feeling like i was going to lop off a digit.
so, if someone told me that i could either have the 'miracle blade' set or a pair of dull scissors as my kitchen set for the rest of my life, i would have to go with the dull scissors. seriously. that bad.
EDIT: trying to be helpful, spend $60-$80 on one decent chef's knife. get it sharpened professionally for $10-$15 a year. that should easily last you 5 years of heavy home use. that math equals $26ish a year for a decent blade. divide that by 12... way less than $3.00 a month. THAT is a good deal; 'ginsu' knives ARE NOT a good deal. buyer beware...
