Starting this month ChefTalk and Mad Cow Cutlery will be giving away a set of three knives from F. Dick’s forged Premier Plus line: 9” chef, 6” flexible boning, and 3.5” paring knife. MSRP is $280.00. Tell Me, How Do I Win????? --------------------------------------------- In an effort to jump start our community reviews we want you to take a minute and write a review of at least one cutlery product you own (chef knife, pairing knife, etc). Reviews need not be lengthy, but they must clearly state why you like (or dislike) the knife and why you would (or would not) recommend it. Every time you write a review your username will be put into the drawing. The more reviews you write the more you increase your chances of winning. See official rules below. If you are not sure of how to write a review on ChefTalk then please review this tutorial on Writing Reviews Official Rules: Reviews should be no less than 5-7 sentences in length. Write your review as if you were writing it for a friend so that they would know why you think they should purchase the product you are reviewing. Each review must be your own writing. You cannot re-use the same text for one review on another review. Each review must be unique. You must include pros and cons with your review. You must include an overall star rating with your review. Because of shipping costs the contest is only open to U.S. community members. At the end of the month one winner will be chosen randomly from all the usernames of those that wrote reviews. The winner will be notified the first of September. And if you don't win, don't worry you will have plenty of chances to win as we will be giving away prizes for reviews each month so stay tuned. A little about the knives Tradition and quality.
