Christmas gifts

One thing my mom gives us married people every Christmas is one or two Cutco knives or other Cutco gadgets. ( I love Cutco.)
We’re so close this year to having a full knife set, or at least the basic knife set.
Heck, I don’t even care if we get the last knife, or spatula spreader,  I just want the block to put my knives in and use. (I’m strange and have wanted to get the whole set before we used any.)
Besides knives we’ve also receive a pizza cutter and vegetable peeler, seriously the best pizza cutter or veggie peeler you could ever have.
And then baking stuff, like spatulas and serving stuff. ( I forget I have a huge spatula that would be lovely for frosting large cakes but it’s tucked away with the knives for future use once I get the block.)
I really hope my mom got the hint in my e-mail and gets us the block to put the knives in because I would love to get rid of one of the knife sets on my counter. ( I won’t say which one. And yes we have two knife sets, soon to be three if I get my wish. We got two for wedding gifts. One is a new one, well five years old now and whatever cutlery brand you get a Target and the other is a Union Pacific set that I wanted more for sentimental value that is from Jon’s parents, but Jon didn’t like having only one butcher knife and he pulled them out a while back. Though we really only use the butcher knife out of that set and when I say we, I mean him.)

Anyways, as I’m typing this I have the knives in their boxes on my computer desk. Whenever I pull them out to survey what we have and let my mom know, it reminds me how sharp they are and how dull my current knives are.
A block to put them in would be the perfect Christmas gift.
I want sharp knives to use this new year.

    What about putting the Cutco knives in one of your other blocks? Will they fit?

    You remind me of myself! I love kitchen gadgets….I can’t wait to have a kitchen of my own to cook and bake in. And you’re not wierd…I would want to keep them all tucked away too until my set was complete! 🙂

    You’re weird. But that’s why I love you. I hope you get your knife block for Christmas. 😀

    We I could try to put the knives in a block we have, but one knife block has the slots horizontally and the other knife block has them vertically. The knives I like are the horizontal ones and in essence the ones I would want to keep out with the Cutco ones.
    I’m just gonna wait and hope. If I don’t get the block I might just buy it myself, because I’m sure I would get the last knife this Christmas then.
