Cons: Material Quality, Durability, Sharpenability, Construction
The New Chicago Cutlery is nothing like the old stuff.
I purchased 2 Chicago Cutlery 5' inch utility knives to replace two Chicago Cutlery utility knives I had purchased about 25 years ago (Our big puppies loved to chew on the handles). I can't believe this is the same company. Extremely shoddy, compared to what I bought before! The wood was no where near as solid feeling as before. The steel was more on a par to cheap steak knives. SO disappointed!! Just ordered a utility knife from a (hopefully) more qualitatively consistent manufacturer (German made); that I have had great experiences with in the recent past. So sorry!!!!
