    thank you! I am going to try (key word) to get there tomorrow. Best of all, on the way, I want to finally check out Cancun in Sleepy Hollow, since it is marginally on the way there for me. Wish me luck.

      Sadly, the stock is slightly reduced as far as I can tell. (And yes, I went again this time and no, it wasn't to buy gifts for others.) I came away with a great white handled "Classic" knife for $30 (black is $45 at the sale). Great buys on excellent poultry shears (the kind that come apart to wash), $9, all sorts of lower priced knives. Seems to be a few quality grades--make sure you get the through tang, steel bolster knives or ask the staff for advice. PLUS--do not forget to bring in your knives to be sharpened. They do a great job--and I'm a little fetishy about my knives--at only $1 per.
      I love Corona's Luncheonette in Sleepy Hollow for Cubanos--$4 for a real deal, gooey, salty, earthy Cubano.

        I need to add that the people who work there and their head bossman are some of the most genuinely nice people i have ever met this side of the appalachians. I kid you not, the place has renewed my belief in the kindness of sales.

          I went yesterday. Good news was it was fairly empty, not the zoo that Henckels usually is (whose sale I missed this year). Bad news is I didn't find any bargains. I actually wanted poultry shears, but they did not have any. They did have Kitchen Shears (that come apart, as you described), but they were $9.99, and the guy told me they would not cut bone (I wanted something to cut a whole chicken). The other knives looked nice but there wasn't really anything I needed and I did not see any amazing bargains like I often find at Henckels.

          Sadly I had not planned to go (and went after work) so I did not bring any knives to sharpen. I need to find the electric one I bought a long time ago and never used.

          And yes, the people working there were very nice.

            Those shears might not cut through the center of a thighbone, but they'll definitely cut the ribs alongside the backbone and through the cartilaginous joints, which is where you usually cut a chicken anyway. Also--I think $30 for a top-of-the-line Wusthof "Classic" chef's knife is a real bargain!
            I'm partial to Wustof, though--you sound like a Henkel person. I feel that Henkel seriously de-valued their brand with those cheapo sets at Costco. They have a lot of not-top-quality lines (as does Wustof, to be honest) but I think that the cheaper Wustof knives are better than the cheapest Henkel knives.

              Oh well, I guess the $10 kitchen shears were a decent deal. I already had enough knives -- so the only thing that was going to get me to buy something was finding a really good deal. And I wasn't inclined to spend $30-40 for a knife I didn't really need.

              BTW, at Henkels they put up the list price as well their price so you have an idea of the bargain. I guess if Wusthoff had signs saying that the $40 knife was normally $100 (assuming it was true), I might have been more interested.
