Maybe you could put a sanding head on a dremel and buff away the Guy Fieri branding? I mean, it might leave you with scratched-up blades, but at least you wouldn't have that guy's name on what are apparently decent enough knives.

Good reviews here at http://www.amazon.com/Guy-Fieri-ER34-Knuckle-Sandwich/dp/B005583HS4

Think I'll try the cleaver. Price is worth the risk.

Ah, perfect. I'll be able to use my Guy Fieri knives while wearing my Snooki Slippers and sipping Donald Trump vodka. My life is now complete. Thanks, Woot!

I have everyone of the knives in this collection. They are REAL professional grade knives. The cleaver is super as well as the other two. You won't be disappointed.

These could be the greatest knives ever, but as anyone who has ever tasted his horrendous salsa can tell you, he'll put his name on anything.

And seriously, you're supposed to use the handle to smash things?! Great idea. Put a fork on the end of the blade while you're at it.

Just to point out one knife if from the knuckel buster series and the other two are from the midnight series.

Houston Texans' knives would have been so much better. In every way possible.



My reaction entirely, first-class brisket cutters for McBee's Barbecue south of San Antonio.

(Then, next, the New York Jets ones would be switchblades.)

Hmmmmm. A knife that does function as a knife.

I just checked my kitchen drawer and (I guess I'm lucky), but every single one of my knives does that!

I would like to see a knife that does not...perhaps one of those rubber ones they sell around Halloween that has the spring thing that you put on your head so it looks like it is sticking through?

I mean no offense, I'm just intrigued and speculating as yet another snow shower whips into Minnesota.

It's very telling that the product photos focus on the heel and blur out the blades. I guess that's meant to tell you that they're designed to be good hammers.

Ha, also, on my Woot view, the next item is "DB Garden Tools". Guess you can't sell the Lions, and Tigers, and Bears! Oh, my! bag's kitchen tools without his garden tools.

The 12 days of crap was just that- crap.

It's funny how when Woot! calls their stuff crap, it's ok, but when *YOU* call it crap, *poof* you get banned. Hypocrites.

A Guy Fieri video review from a grown ass man who still wears his hat backwards. You can't write this stuff.

Can we bundle these knives with some Rachel Ray merchandize for the "most douchiest Woot! evar"?

Also, as an IT person, I can tell you that a well-known site might still be a problem if it allows 3rd party advertising - which most commercial sites seem to do these days - or if it has any vulnerable code that could be exploited by hackers.

Not sure about that, but maybe it was around the time he actually changed his name from Ferry to Fieri. Yup, check it out on Wikipedia or elsewhere. His birth name is Guy Ferry. Guess he thought Fieri was more worthy of some chef cred.

Anyway, I like the looks of these knives, especially the star in that cleaver. Kinda want to buy it, but don't have any money. Ergo Chef knives get pretty good reviews and, anyway, it is my finding that even cheep knives cut well when kept sharp. I had bought a Shun from Woot a few years ago and I didn't like it as much as my $10 Accuto brand knife I bought from Homegoods. It didn't even cut better than the $10 knife. I kept the knife sharp, though. I sold the Shun and kept my red bladed and red handled knife.

All Guy Fieri bashing aside, these things look to have terrible ergonomics. I can't figure out what good could come of slanting the handle downward like that. It would make for an awkward cutting angle and possibly cause you to hit your knuckles on the board when you chop.

I have the whole set and I have been really pleased with them. I cook a lot and they have really held up to a lot of use and have stayed sharp. No complaints from me!

While I don't have any of these, my dad does and he likes them. He says they cut very well, although I seem go recall him saying the ergonomic handles were odd and took some getting used to.

For what it's worth my dad knows what he's doing in the kitchen and is super picky. He is just as likely to buy a $5 knife as a $200 knife if it works well. If something doesn't work as good as it should, it's quickly replaced. And whether or not you like Guy Fieri, I know these knives are still in my dad's kitchen after several years.

Does anyone know if all that Guy Fieri junk can be taken off the blade with a Dremel? If so, this would make a great gift for a Houston Texans fan.

The tang has nothing do with how pleasurable a knife is to use (other than maybe weight, which can be compensated for), but rather the sturdiness and strength of the knife. With that said, I would never recommend a knife without a full tang. I didn't even realize that American-made knives are sold without a full tang.

Pure garbage.

I was given one of the "Knuckle Sandwich" knives for free about a year ago. I put it to test against my Shun cutting up some random fruits and vegetables and the Shun destroyed it. Obviously, the Shun is much more expensive so I pulled out an old, rusty, mistreated, cheap piece of junk knife that's been sitting in a box for a few years. The junk knife likewise destroyed the Knuckle Sandwich by a wide margin.

There are cheaper and much better chef's knives on the market such as the highly rated Victorinox. Or, if you are a little more serious about cooking, you could spend a few extra bucks on a brand like Wusthof. These Guy Fieri knives are just worthless junk and have no reason for existing unless you want knives that look cool that you never actually use.

Why would anyone with 20k+ knives own anything that isn't full tang?

Technically, the glass is always full.
