Gunter Wilhelm Knives on Sale at Costco - B&M - High Quality German Knives
Just got home from Costco in Everett, MA. I purchased a 8 inch Gunter Wilhelm Chef's knife for $35 ($70 - $35 instant coupon) which you get from a temporary merchant booth. The Costco return policy still applies, in addition to GW's full lifetime warranty.
You typically do not find these knives in stores because GW does not sell to retailers - therefore, the price is relatively low.
As for the knife, it feels and cuts great - they use 440 high carbon stainless steel which is the same metal that Wusthof and Henckels uses.
I also own a Shun Classic 10 inch Chef's which I got for +$100 and this GW knife is definitely in the same class, I would say. A Wusthof or an Henckels would cost also ~$100 for the same knife.
A very decent quality knife for $35 is a pretty good deal, IMHO.
Oh, and they had other types of knives and knife sets also at the booth.
