Chicago Cutlery

You haven't met Juke and Melwood Blades? They eat, sleep, and breathe one thing: cutlery. It doesn't matter if it's mincing a tomato or slicing a loaf of bread, they just love using cutlery. Why? Get your hands on some of this Chicago Cutlery, and find out for yourself.

I received the 15-piece set (with the black handles) as a wedding gift and have been pretty happy with it. They're not high end, but they are fairly sharp and seem to be keeping an edge. We actually end up using the steak knifes as large paring knifes more than we use them as steak knifes. The included scissors are very nice and come in handy.

If you are in need of a knife set, you should probably just buy a nice chef's knife, a paring knife and a bread knife but if you feel like you need lots of knifes these will work well.

Wonder why they still call these Chicago Cutlery. Seriously doubt they're made in Chicago.

Probably the same reason the imported junky hand tools at harbor freight are "Pittsburgh" brand.

Farberware...only with black handles.
Same knife election, same block, same Chinese maker.

The days of "trusted brand names" is fast becoming a joke.

We bought a product that claimed to be "Chicago" brand. One blade broke and nearly took out the wife's eye. Chicago Knives replaced the whole set with the top of the line knife set. No charge! The good ones are carbon steel, not stainless!

I like how "partoku" is impossible to spell in Japanese.

I'll pass. Any knife trying to make up Asian-sounding words is probably not worth your time (see: "ginsu")

I have these knives and had them for about 4 years, I love them, only downfall is that the scissors cannot cut ANYTHING.

I am very happy with this knife, regardless its name or origin, it is balanced and has a nice 'heft'. I am really enjoying it and am chopping up a storm, If it is re-'Wooted', get you some!
