I love working in the kitchen, and have on my wishlist a set of professional chef's knives to purchase or receive someday. I had a tupperware party this past week and qualify to receive free their T-chef's series forged knives set, priced at 480.00 for a set of 6 knives, a honing steel,plus the block. Is anyone familiar with who makes these knives, how do they compare and last, and will I be happy with them for my lifetime (estimated at approx. 40 more years). I love the idea of receiving them for free, but not if in a few years I will still want somthing else. Am I better off just getting some free tupperware? They seem to live up to all the qualificatons of high-grade knives: they are made out of high-carbon stainless steel, forged blade, handle made out of POM material (?) and claim to be made to the "exacting standards of European and US chefs", yet they are made in China. Thanks for any help.
