    Great inexpensive but highly treasured knifes that you won't throw away -- take a look at the Rada knives.

    http://www.radacutlery.com/Category....CATEGORY=Cat07

    I'm in love with the fillet knife (R102) and the tomato slicer (R126)

    Very inexpensive but will last for years.

    Just about every flea market around here has a booth selling Rada
    knives. They only sell the ones with the silver handles. I find their
    knives to be very uncomfortable for my hands.

    As for tomato slicers, my niece was doing a Pampered Chef thing so I had
    to order something and got their tomato slicer. It's green. It's
    wonderful. Ordinarily I would not buy Pampered Chef stuff as it's way
    over-priced, but I kind of had to buy something and I'm really happy
    with this knife.

    Here's a paring knife that was part of a birthday gift. 3.5" blade.

    http://alturl.com/3agrd

    Comes with a snug fitting, color matching plastic sheath/blade guard. It
    has notches punched out for easy soaking and rinsing.

    I have the red blade model.

    The handle seems to be a hard plastic with each side and underside of the
    handle micro-texturized to give it a rubber-like grip.

    It claims imported Japanese stainless steel but on the packaging it says
    Made in China. Oh well.

    No doubt it's as capable as any other paring knife. Grip comfort would be
    a deciding factor. I haven't used it yet.

    No mention of dishwasher safe so warm soapy water clean and rinse.

    If nothing else, it looks very cool!.

    Don't cry, Andy.

    Goods are deemed to have been manufactured or produced in the country
    in which they last underwent a treatment or process resulting in a
    substantial change.

    Japanese stainless steel can be imported into China where it would be
    substantially changed by being stamped into blades, by being beveled,
    and by being inserted into injection molds which are subsequently
    filled with plastic

    Even if the blades were imported from Japan into China, they would be
    substantially changed by having plastic handles molded around them, as
    anyone who tried to cut with a handleless knife blade can attest to.

    spamtrap,

    What isn't stated is the hardness # of the steel. No mention of carbon
    steel material.

    55 is a suggested minimum (wiki) measure of hardness. So it's maybe a
    cheap-o knife.

    Nevertheless a gift is a gift and deserves welcome adoration.

    Best,

    Andy

    I bought a set of kitchen knives a few months ago... they came with a
    wooden block. Some of the knives are getting rust spots. How do I stop
    this? How do I get rid of it? Where is the rust coming from? Are these
    crappy quality knives? The price didn't seem like they were cheap.
