I usually hunt the thrift stores looking for decent quality NSF-rated cutlery to repair & donate to the local food bank’s kitchen. Instead, this weekend I found 3 items for my own kitchen:
a Cutco sandwich knife, a Mercer 10" bread knife, & a Mac Professional 5" utility knife. All three were 50% off, so I ended up paying about $2.50 for $145.00-worth of knives.
It was a good weekend.
