Retirement Yenta believes a good set of knives is a must in retirement. When you get older and your strength starts to go (or the arthritis sets in), you will want a knife that cuts right through that brisket without a second thought. We’re not talking $6.99 knives that are advertised on TV that claim to cut through cans, but a good QUALITY set of knives. You want a knife that feels good in the hand and has a strong, long lasting blade, guaranteed for free in-home sharpening. Retirement Yenta recommends CUTCO knives. She has two sets in her primary residence (your dear Yenta is a classy, Kosher cook) and she plans to have two sets in each of her other homes.
