@awk@Trinityscrew, Oh Well, I’ll remember to mention that ‘Fact’ the next time someone asks me, “Is there some object that can cut through tittanium, diamonds, or time¿?” Thanks, for your Very Wise answer! And I thought I was a genius, Oh Well BTW, I wasss gonna say that A fukn Fart cuts through quite a bit of crap, e.g. a pair of jeans, a face mask, etc, but hey,… what do I know!!
@awk@danlo@Trinityscrew, How much water can a waterjet cutter cut if a wterjet cutter could cut water¿? [taken from the fuckn woodchuck question] This is Not my attempt to be fuckn funny, but is merely sarcasm-know the fn difference, Warpedrotors! JSYFK!!
@awk@danlo@decoratedwarvet Good afternoon DWV! I guess you’re just funny without meaning to be.
Oh, and, “Most noticeable in spoken word, sarcasm is mainly distinguished by the inflection with which it is spoken and is largely context-dependent.”
@awk@danlo@Trinityscrew, Please, excuse me Buddy, I was actually pullying Warpedrotors leg because after one of my sarcastic comments on the Strpawfel nite, where I stated the Strupwls aren’t crackered up, but are really just Stroopwafeled up, or some-thing like that! Pedro replied to me that as hard as I try, I’m not the least bit funny + he said he was gonna block me!! First off, LOL & Who Gives A Rat’s Ass what he Whines about!! 2nd, I wasn’t fuckn talkin to his ass but if he doesn’t want any shithe need not start any!! He truly needs to realize he is fuckin with the wrooong Mother Fucker & is fuckin with a Son Of A Bitch!! Please, do excuse my long winded explanation, but when you have time check this jerk out!!
@mike808 Except these are the same price range as other knife sets that pop up on this site. So you really are just getting 20% of a knife that also have less functionality and a set that has less to offer than other sets on here. There’s only two different serrations so why need 5 knives? They will all cut the same so you only need one of each serration. The shape of the actual knife doesn’t matter now because the actual cutting edge is the same height. None of them can do any heavy duty work because steel that thin won’t hold up to anything besides gentle slicing and can’t be sharpened repeatedly due to the thin blade section. No matter how you look at it this entire set offers less value and less functionality than a full set of regular knives in the same price range.
@ELJAY@mike808, that’s what I thought until I checked out the other photos; they are 20% metal & 80% air!! If they say ‘Stainless Steel’ & they’re from China, then you can bet your children’s fuckin college fund that it’s Not stainless steel!! JSYK!!
I should have just looked here first, but I kept trying to remember where that was from, “such a simple machine, she doesn’t have to use force…” I could HEAR it, but couldn’t remember where it was from, and then it finally came to me. CAKE!! Haven’t heard that for years… : )
Scissors less than 4 inches from the pivot point are allowed in a carry on bag by the TSA, but knives of any kind are not. You could probably try rubber banding two of the small knives together and calling them scissors, but only if your last name rhymes with Slick Diver.
I can just see the carnage when someone tries to slice cheese by pressing down on the spine only to have the “girder web” collapse - most likely folding lengthwise. Besides being fragile and unnecessary these are probably a real bitch to clean.
Serrated blade = hard no for me dawg.
Impossible to sharpen, limited lifespan.
Seriously, do yourself a favor and buy a decent knife & a sharpener. If you take care of them they will last a lifetime. Or you could spend $24 on crap like this every couple years.
@greenroomjah I get what you’re saying but to be fair, if you were to spend $500 on a good set of knives, or buy these every two years at $25/pop your high dollar knives would have to last more than 40 years to be financially beneficial to purchase.
Of course they can last 40+ years, but then you have the added hassle of having to sharpen them regularly, and to be more careful with washing and storing them and all that…
Maybe someone who takes cooking seriously would appreciate that extra effort, but the average person out there just wants something cheap and doesn’t mind having to replace them from time to time.
Today’s “disposable” mindset exists for a reason - it’s all about convenience for a lot of people, and the added “joy” of getting something new from time to time.
I’m not excusing this behavior, just explaining it.
@mOONmOON Yeah but you’re completely overstating the level of care & knife quality required. I received a 2 knife set as a gift 10+ years ago. It was around $50 at Kohls (barely 2x the cost of these!). I run them through my super-cheap knife sharpener whenever they start to feel dull (every 4-6 months or so), takes less than 5 minutes. I don’t put any extra effort into caring for them & they still work as well as the day I got them.
If people want to repeatedly waste their money on garbage like this that’s their prerogative but the alternative is not necessarily all that much more expensive or difficult to maintain.
