Ginsu Knives Cutlery Set

Ginsu Knives: Long Lasting Kitchen Cutlery Set

The first ever commercial for Ginsu kitchen cutlery set knives aired in 1978. I remember my dad shaking his head and saying there had to be a trick to it.

As a knife collector and sharpener, in addition to his carpentry skills, Dad just didn't believe the blades would hold an edge well enough to cut a tomato after being used to hack at a tree limb.

However, over the intervening years, the Ginzu reputation for quality has continued to grow.

These days, the old familiar black handled knives are still available, but Ginsu also has nice selection of cutlery that have handles to match almost any kitchen decor.

Personally, I like the red handled knives, but my daughter would probably prefer the purple or green color knife handles.

The Ginsu Shoku Set pictured here comes with a black block, but if you don't have counter top space, you can also order a wall mountable stainless steel magnetic strip, so that the knives are on the wall above the counter. The strips also come in different colors, as well as in different types of wood.

These great kitchen cutlery sets come with different color handles, such as red, blue, purple, green, or black.

Ginsu aired their first
knife commercial in 1978.

Original Ginsu Knife Commercial I

First aired in 1978, this commercial definitely got some conversations going. Most people just did not believe they commercials were true. Over time, though, many of the same people have been converted to be Ginsu believers.

The ad below aired in 1980. Too bad the price of these knives has increased along with everything else in our current economy.
