Default Cutco knifes any thoughts

I am hard on hunting knife blades and don't enjoy sharpening them, so I am looking at a cutco full serrated blade it is expensive so I thought I would ask if the GS has any experience/thought with the knifes
Thanks

I have 2 kitchen sets and they are great. Also have the hunting and fishing knife too. Quality piece of gear for sure. Lifetime warranty for sharpening. Just send the back and they will sharpen all of them at no charge.

Cheap steel. Overpriced. Serrated knives are not good for kitchen knives.

If you are hard on knives I would just buy a cheap set and then buy another when they mess up.

That being said, if you buy 1 decent butcher knife, you'll be amazed at the ease of cutting food. Theres no real way to be hard on them, short of cutting on a hard surface or throwing them in the sink/dishwasher.

Edit: didnt see the hunting knife part. Still cheap steel

LOL wow don't know how I didnt see the hunting part.

Use a havalon. MUCH better than using a serrated knife to clean a deer. Serrated knife will get hair all over the meat, will make too many tiny slices when quartering, and will make it more difficult to skin.

My wife's little cousin was selling them so she bought a set of kitchen knives plus a fillet knife. It's the best fillet knife I've ever owned. Razor sharp and holds an edge like no other. Th kitchen knives are good too.

Iím not sure about their knifes but their hunting knives are great. I have been using one of the double d serrated blades for about ten years without a need for sharpening. Just sent it back to be resharpened for many more years of use.

Well worth the price tag.

Cutco makes a great knife with a great warranty. We have about all of them, some kitchen knives over 25 years old that look new. I have some skinners I like better but for an off the shelf knife their skinners are very good.

Had kitchen set for probably 6 years now. Never sharpened any except chopper and pairing. Have had straight hunting 4-5 years. Sharpened 2 times and needs it again.
I've had the "double d" hunting knife 15 plus years. Sharpened twice. Once was after I cut a brick in half just cause they bet me it wouldn't.... then I cleaned a deer afterwards

Worth it to me

I received a serrated hunting knife about 20 years ago. I don't know how many hogs/deer I have cleaned/skinned with it, but I am amazed that it has made it this far. I would highly recommend Cutco, and if I am ever looking for a good kitchen set, I will definately spend my money with them. By the way, I have had it sharpened only once. Very impressed.

Good knives (I've used a bunch) BUT nothing super special about them and WAY overpriced for a rubber handled knife.. But as long as people keep buying them the price will remain..
They seem to be the latest trend(last 8 or so years)in south Texas..

Yea we have a kitchen set we got as a gift but would never spend that out of my pocket for what you get. Steel is sub par and doesn’t hold up long with lots of use. My wife is one who cooks 3 meals a day most days so they get run through pretty good. Several blades with chips and get dull pretty quick. The serrated last a little longer but only cause they’re serrated. Could see it being a half decent hunting knife but for the money I’d have a knife builder here in TBH make one that would hold an edge better

I have the full serrated Cutco with a guy hook. It performs well for 1 elk and then you have no way to sharpen it. Long story short I’ll never carry it again but it sits in my truck to clean road kill for dog food. I’d advise a Randall Model 3 in carbon steel. Behring knives also has great knives so invest a little more and you’ll be glad you did.

I have the serrated edge hunting knife. It was a gift. Like it to cut hide round the legs of hogs. Ain't much for a skinner but it's a good knife. I sharpen as needed.

I go the Cutco fishing knife (fillet knife) as a gift. It's been an awesome blade and I've still yet to sharpen it after butchering about 7 deer or so. Keeps an edge better than any other knife I own, including my Henckels.

Then get the Cutco serrated hunting knife. Mine has the orange grip. I have every custom knife under the sun and the Cutco is easily the best for going thru the rib cage (although, I donít mess with splitting the rib cage anymore). You will really like the knife and just send it back in if it ever gets dull.

I've got the serrated hunting knife -- it's probably 25 years old and I've never bothered to send it back to them, but I hate it compared to just about any of my other knives.

Some chick I dated in college sold them and gave me one as a gift.

Give me a Stic, a Buck, or a Havalon any day over that gimmick.
