Here is what i have if no one has yet.
No, the block is the same. Earlier, some people posted that it was different, but that's incorrect. They discontinued the knife block set--the set that we currently have, because it is assigned an item number and that is associated w/ the kitchen shears and only 8 knives. The new knife block set is a different item # and comes with the professional shears and the serrated knife.
I can seem to only cut with mine if something is close to the tip, does that make sense. Its like farther down the blade are not sharp, maybe it is operator error or a dude set of shears. I earned them in the sellathon for whatever season that they came out.
Actually - I was kind of surprised they did not list price increases. Normally if there are any they do. I wonder if they did not have any though? I have not had a chance to compare the new catalog to the old.
They never give us a list of price increases--we always have to figure it out ourselves.
I haven't sat down and compared the catalog, but at first glance I don't think there were that many, if any at all.
No - at least last time, when they increased prices on cookware, plastics, etc..there was a list of price increases available on CC.
OK. The price changes were listed in the Fall/Winter 2008 Special Edition but not in the Spring/Summer 2009 Edition. SO... apparently the new pattern is to not tell us as of February 2009.
