as soon as I receive these Wusthof knives I just ordered for myself.
I'm feeling a bit of a thump in the old ticker just looking at these pictures
This is not a decision I've made lightly. At a cost of more than my first monthly mortage payment (in 1974), I have expended a considerable amount of thought before I hit the send button. Last year I bought one really good knife and now that I know what it's like to chop with quality, I've been wanting to buy more.
This morning I decided the time had come and I went to the only local store in town that sells Wusthof to buy a set. The price of Wusthof is pretty much the same everywhere, so I thought I would support the local economy. Sure enough the price was the same at my local store, but if I ordered on line, I would get these two free gifts:
A knife sharpener
I also would pay no tax and no shipping. My quick calculations indicated about $43 of added value. So I ordered online. I am, after all, a frugal shopper.
There comes a time in a woman's life when she says, "I deserve quality." Then she goes out and buys whatever it is that makes her feel like a million bucks.
I know I am going to relish the moment when I julienne that first carrot with my precision forged, hand honed, smooth, classically shaped full tang handled, triple riveted 8-inch chef's knife.
