I have used one of the Cuisinart knives, it was not bad at all. With knives, like many things, you are not going to get bargains generally, you are going to get what you pay for. I liked the Cuisinart, I used, it was clear where it was not as nice as a better knife, the handle was not quite as nice, the steel felt a little rough in the cut, it was a little less lively in the hand. But, it was reasonable for the price.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
