A son of a family that used to go to our church just came over yesterday to give us his Cutco presentation. He called in a bit of a panic yesterday morning because he didn’t have any presentations scheduled for that day and he said he would have gotten in trouble if he didn’t do at least one. (Sound familiar Jon?) Anyway, this was the 3rd time we’d scheduled an appointment with him and we’d already pretty much decided which knives we wanted to buy. Plus, being educated by Jon, we really didn’t need to sit through the whole “this is why Cutco is superior, why wood handles are disgusting, see how the shears can cut through a penny, let’s cut rope and leather, etc” presentation. But we did anyway, and in the end, we bought the 4″ Paring Knife, the Petite Carver and the Slicer (both with a serrated edge*), and the deal threw in one for free so we got the Spatula Spreader. All in all, I’m glad to have some good knives on the way and it was nice to be able to help out Joe too. It was also fun to see what Jon might have looked like so many years ago in his presentations!
*Gotcha, Jon! We know they’re Double-D, of course. That’s why they’re so awesome.
