Just got an email that "The 9" chef knives are on sale at 20% off. They are being discontinued to make way for a new model next Spring. I guess Christmas has just come a little early.
I've been playing with the Super Bread knife for a review and been pretty impressed. Blew away my 10" Forschner bread knife (a Cook's Illustrated best buy). In crusty bread anyway, haven't tried it on a cake or other tender things yet.
Also playing with some variations of their petty for development. Fun stuff.
