Agreed, the packaging is lacking. Mine weren't damaged, luckily, but I could see how that might happen if handled roughly before they got to you.
2) The knives are SHARP! I would almost be willing to say these are close to my steak knives. Definately sharp enough to be cutting a tender steak, or some chicken. This is not your average butter knife (which I believe is what led to everything being scratched in the box)
That's a good point - the butter knives pack some sharp little teeth. Much sharper than I'm used to, but I like that.
Definately a nice set - way better than your standard "target" fair that I'm used to (Onieda, Faberware, etc)
Oh - and I want my $30 back Woot! ;)
Seriously a much better set than you'll find at most outlet stores. I happened to be in the market for a new set when I bought mine, so it worked out perfectly.
If Woot offered something for us that ordered before, I wouldn't turn it down, but the value is high enough that I don't feel cheated in any way - you are buying from Woot, of course, and prices reflect how badly they need to move. Just like complaining that product X that you bought at a brick-and-mortar shop went on sale or clearance - you might get some sort of refund later on, but more often than not, no.
Now if only I could return all those un-winning lottery tickets...
