I bought a full set of Cutco cutlery in 2007. It's 2013 and I'm just now having them resharpened even though I've used them almost every day; and only a few knives needed it. They still look awesome and almost cut like they were new. This office in Albuquerque seems to respond well to my requests. Nick Jackson came out to sharpen my knives. He is a very pleasant fellow. He said he sharpened a customer's knife set who had the set for 65 years and this was the second sharpening. Wow! I also looked at their cookware. While it is pricey, it seems to cook wonderfully and has a lifetime guarantee which is very cool. If you want superb quality and have the bucks I highly recommend them.
