Where does the ad say you're getting 10 knives?

One would imagine that "10-Piece Chef's Knife Set" would consist of 10 knives.
It says very clearly "10-PIECE," not "10-KNIFE." The honing rods, storage blocks, etc. aren't cost-free to manufacture.

So it's good, if one can read English, that they don't advertise the set as having 10 knives.

It is good that their advertising worked on gullible people, someone was paid good money to convince people that its ok to put 7 knives in a 10 piece knife set. You are probably the person that buys a 100 piece tool kit with 50 screwdriver bits in it.

Not sure if English is your native language, but they advertise 10 pieces and you get 10 pieces. You can't expect for-profit companies to distribute welfare by giving you free stuff. Plus, you can't cut carrots or celery with a crescent wrench.

I get what your saying with your replies and all. But you seem like a smart person and must know this IS how advertising works and how it has worked since before you or I were alive.

To me it seems like you posted this just so others would respond they way they have, so in turn you could respond the way you have. In any case, it is unhelpful and there for I have thumbed it down.

As far as the knives go, the KAI Group makes some great knives, Shun is one of them. If you have the money and the Japanese style handle feels good in your hands, these are worth the buy.
