Insanely Cheap Knives with Killer Reviews

I have recently stumbled upon some seriously intriguing and below dirt cheap knives that I thought I'd share. Reading the praises in culinary circles and reviews like this one have made me order a couple.

They are from Kiwi and I spent $10.90 (yes, total, including shipping) on the 11" blunt "meat knife" and the paring knife. Of course I'll post a review after I get them and use them for a while.

You can get them online here.

Just spreadin' the love,
John

P.S. Here is another interesting testimonial.

Re: Insanely Cheap Knives with Killer Reviews

I'm going to check the Asian markets around here for them. I think they would make great camp/outdoor knives...like the reviewer used.

UPDATE:
Found 4 of the knives at the local Thai Market. Picked up a non-Kiwi, heavy weighted cleaver too. Has a full tang handle to boot.

Re: Insanely Cheap Knives with Killer Reviews

I got my Kiwi knives yesterday (great service from The Wok Shop, by the way). Man, these things give a whole new meaning to "scary sharp". They are basically razor blades with handles.



I'll put them through a quick trial and post a review this weekend.

John

P.S. I apologize for the craptastic picture.

There's a little asian market near my house so I went in today and picked up one of the 11". Haven't used it yet but I'll second the razor comment.
