Saw knife #1

Pros
Good While It Lasted
Cons
Best Uses
Comment:
The rivets that hold the knife blade to the handle came out. not only on the #1 saw knife but also #8 and #5. To be honest not all the rivets fell out. It seems that just the rivet closest to the knife tip, on all 3 knives, are the ones that came out.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Got the set 8 years ago.<br />The scissors broke soon after.<br />The baster didn't make it through the first turkey.<br />The knives made it 5 years until we got a dishwasher.<br />After that, they started to rust out, so we try not to put them in. They are sharped than the old Chicago Cutlery ones we were using, and I don't mind them.
