what's the quality of the steel? Or is it like a one time use knife only? Like so you use it once and then you throw it. EEK!

Well...they won't be family heirlooms but they are not one-time use either. I'd say better than average. And for around $10.25 after all the discounts including tax it's a no-brainer even if you thought they were one-time use.

These would be good to keep in toolboxes and glove boxes and junk drawers. Don't think I would bother carrying one in my pocket for everyday use. But these are great for unexpected occasions when you need a knife and don't have one. Good gifts to give away to people for no reason too. Lol.
Nice find O.P.

Well, there are 15 pieces, I think. So at 87 cents each, it is not a fair comparison for a good medium quality knife that would cost about 20-50 bucks on sale.

But it looks like these are better than disposable and certainly a cheap knife is better than none at all. So you could cut rope, open packages, keep one in every tool box and glove box and purse.....

I got these for same price couple years back. Every piece is much better than any dollar store analogue I've seen but the best way to treat them would be as disposable utility blades to keep in random places and just be pleasantly surprised they hold up as long as they do. The multitools aren't as nice as even the home depot husky that clear for $3-5 in january but they are also better than dollar store multitools. The 5 bigger black handled folding knives are probably the only real "prizes", everything else is small like 2-3 inches folded, the black handled knives are about 4.25 inches folded w 3in blade. Folding and locking feels solid enough though but there is definitely wobble in the unfolded locked blade in the direction perpendicular to the cutting edge. Combined with the plastic handle it is enough to want to avoid applying pressure on the blade and just rely on sawing slicing motions. Maybe the occasional poke and stab. The knives are light enough to keep in a bag in a pinch though.

Overall I think they're worth getting if you're already at lowes *and* you either don't know if you don't need a pocket knife or have one or two good ones you use as edc already and just want some random spares until you wear down your good ones that you need to resharpen them and maybe get new fresh edcs. You can also use them as your edc if all you do is open boxes or slice twine (probably not rope but there are a couple serrated in there). If that's the case though I'd rather carry a utility cutter with replaceable blades.

But if I knew of a good reliable solid folder for $5, maybe even $10, probably just go with 1-2 of those. I read good things about Mora brand. This set makes me feel weird to either keep them all, throw or donate the rest out, and I wouldn't gift them to anyone in case it breaks on them.

For my uses my edc is actually a Tool Logic wallet tool featuring a stout 2 inch blade which is the only thing I use lol.

Oops misremembered. Moras do get great reviews but are fixed blade and like $10+.

I agree, there are multipacks of various junk tools and knives available at dollar stores everywhere save your money for better quality, quality counts when it comes to tools and knives.

This is a GREAT deal. As a knife collector, I regularly buy single knives that are ten times the price of this 25 piece set.

My total came out to be $12.61 using this coupon 47000LOWES2836S

12.61/25 = $0.5044 per piece!

You can't beat that deal, especially if you need beater knives on the daily. Thanks OP!
