I went to Sam's Sunday after church. Needed to pick up a few things. While I was in there a man came on the speaker and said he was giving away stainless steel paring knives. I knew there would be a presentation of some sort so I stiffened up my back to say no to whatever he was selling.
Have you ever been in this situation? Since he was giving away paring knives, I figured he was selling knives, and I wasn't wrong. Remember the long Ginsu knives they used to sell(and may still)on TV where they'd show cutting veggies and then sawing a soda can into. Then they'd cut up more veggies. That's basically what this guy was doing except he sawed on a hammer head and his didn't go by the name Ginsu.
These knives are guaranteed for life. If you manage to break it or if it becomes dull, they will replace it no questions asked. That sounded pretty good, but if you had all those guarantees, then they were bound to be expensive. He said the knife sold for 39 with 6.75 shipping and handling. Out of my price range, but wait, for that price today, he'd give you a second one free. That meant you would get two knives and your free paring knife. $85 dollars worth of knives. Well, that sounded better so I was thinking this over when he said, but that's not all folks, I'm going to give you a third knife. I was HOOKED. But wait, there's more. He threw in a boning knife, two more paring knives and a hand food chopper.
He said this all totaled up to be almost $200 for the low low price of 39.95. Needless to say, I am now the proud owner of some heavy duty cutlery. My son came by and I showed it to him and said, pick out what you want. He took one of the big knives and the boning knife and one of the paring knives.
I'm anxious to find out if he thinks they are any good.
Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. Pray for our country. Love one another.
