I am wondering if anyone can explain to me why are the color coated knives color coated, what makes them special?
I had a customer ask me and had no idea how to respond to her.
thank you so much

They are colored to be trendy! Thats all, they are also reasonably priced so so they are good for kids going off to college etc.....HTH

I think they are coated so that your veggies aren't exposed directly to the metal, so they don't brown. I don't think they are as high quality as the forged cutlery, and also the coating will eventually flake off.

The tomoato knife is awesome!

I get asked that all the time. I tell people it's so that they'll look cute. They're also a great introduction to our knives--a great starter set.

The coating won't flake off, but it will wear off with time. That's why they don't have a lifetime warranty.

I am trying to upload page 9 from the Sept 08 CN - it's all about the 3 knife collections and the differences and features of each but the upload keeps failing. If you still have that CN the info is there.

There is a download called "Anatomy of a Knife" behind CC that compares all three lines and shows how they are different. That will help you greatly.

Or, the page in the CN that Carolyn referenced is also available behind CC.

I am almost sure that our little trick to get the specials ahead of time, also works on CN, go to a Sept. & change 09 to 08 & it should caom up. Sometimes when I'm thinking about an old host/guest special I'll do that....:)

Ginger, I don't get the little trick...don't see a place on CN where we can actually type something in to change the date...

I thought the coating was also to make them non-stick (at least that's what it says in the catalog - that they are non-stick, not necessarily that that's the reason they are colored).
