Oh, is that the business based out of Glen Cove?
Oh, aren't you in Glen Cove?:D :lol:
That knife cuts both ways. If they made lifetime tips, they wouldn't be around anymore:D :crazy: ;) :look: Rolled edges:smiles:
I've been using the english-made PME tips for a few years - they're great - no seams, no rusting....you can buy them from Beryl's or from Geraldine Randlesome's Creative Cutters site, or from Squires Kitchen in the UK. They're not cheap, but I think they're better made than the Ateco ones for decorative work. Wilton doesn't compare by any means!
The biggest key in having tips that last is treating them right. I have some of the cheapest tips as well as more expensive, and as long as they are washed and airdried before storing they rarely have any issues.
In the end, they are so inexpensive anyway I don't consider them to be lifetime tools.
If you have a business or are affiliated with one then you maybe able to purchase from ckproducts.com they are the US distributor for PME products. You'll save alot of $$$ purchasing them this way than buying from Beryls or Creative Cutters.
