Question about Cutco knives (making a trade)

So I was looking on Craigslist. Saw a guy with 4 cutco table knives for trade. I have a pair of Oakley Whisker polarized glasses I have not worn in a year+ and I have a Oakley soft vault case. I offered to trade him that. He said that plus $30. Sound like a deal? The glasses are worth $80~ at this point.

    You dont use the glasses. You would use the knives I assume. In reality, its $30 for  the set of knives since the glasses dont do you any good. I say go for it. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Agreed glasses are a sunk cost economics 101

    Cutco are exceptional knives with a lifetime warranty, I'd absolutely do the deal!

    Table knives as in steak knives or chef knives ? either way not a bad deal 6 piece table knife on amazon is over 200.00 . like travis said glasses are doing you no good other than a dust collector or paper weight

  • Cutco is having a sale right now and you can get 4 "table" knives for $107 just in case you wanted a reference figure (you need to sign into the website to get prices) Their table knives are everyday knives... think butter knife/steak combo. I have been very happy with mine.

    Not a bad deal.  My cutco set was $1600.00.........Fourteen years ago.  Very nice knives

  • We invested in Cutco knife set back in the 80's. Still using them every day.  Highly recommend them!!

    We just got a set of Cutcos, and my wife learned very quickly to keep band-aids in the kitchen. Those suckers are sharp!
  • Had my Cutco knives for 15 years.  Still sharp and going strong.

  • Well I ended up not doing the trade. Someone offered me $100 for the glasses so sold yesterday. Wicked island mentioned that same set is on sale for $107 so will buy that way and only $7+tax out of pocket. Thanks everyone
