OT- Electric Knifes?

Anybody have a good recommendation? Seems most I have found do not.

I remember when I was a growing up, we had one that was Harvest gold in color and never failed.

Even on all of the non food stuff I used in on.

    Check out American Angler. American made with great torque/ power. Comes with several blades and will cut meat like butter. If you're a fisherman you'll be surprised how it will handle a big redfish.

    I picked up a Cuisinart CEK-40 before Thanksgiving and have used it on turkey and ham.  Did some experiments and could consistently cut 1/8th inch thick slices of turkey breast.  Worked beautifully. Comes with a bread blades too.

    Check ebay. Several "vintage" knives there. Probably outlast a new one. Even some in Harvest Gold. I still have one in Avocado, from the 70s I think.


    I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded... dead.

    I still use my "vintage" GE electric knife….it's shown on the ebay link provide. Received my knife as a gift in 1966 and have used it for slicing turkey ever since. I'd recommend you get that one from ebay….you won't go wrong, providing it still works.
