KNIVES - GREAT DEAL!

sel | Jul 30, 200606:44 PM     1

Although I have a selection of good quality European style knives, I have wanted to try a Santoku Japanese knife for quite a while. The Japanese Woodworker store is on my list as is The Wok Shop (for other stuff) the next time that I'm in the S.F. Bay Area.

When I go to a Sam's Club I always check out the limited restaurant supplies aisle and when I went a couple of days ago they had a two-pack of santoku style knives for $12 and some change! I've already used it and it is great. I now know that I'll get a high quality Santoku some day but for a utilitarian tool I'm very happy. The 10-inch chefs knives are $14 and some change for a two-pack. They are Tramontia brand, made in Brazil, have the ubiquitous white plastic handles so common on cheap restaurant knives. They also have paring and boning knives at a similar savings.

They also have some heavy mixing bowls that are as large as 13-guarts and smaller ones that are sold individually.
