My name is Jana Dalton and I live on a farm near Dayton, Ohio. We purchased the farm in 2000 and have made many improvements, one of which was cleaning up an area down by the woods that we affectionately now refer to as the Fairy Patch. It was an area that in the pre-recycle era, was basically a scrap heap. We were clearing and reclaiming the area with a backhoe and stopped to take a break. I kicked around a few misc. items thinking I may find treasure and something caught my eye in a freshly upturned patch of dirt. I saw the outline of a very large knife and at closer look, recognized the shape of the handle. I thought there was no way it could be, but I picked it up and it had the unmistakable trademark Cutco handle.
It was covered in dirt and goo and still doubting my find, I took back to the house and cleaned it up with some olive oil and steel wool so I could see the engraving on the blade. Sure enough, it was a Cutco. We have had Cutco for years and were already impressed by the quality of the product, but this was over the top. That knife was buried a minimum of ten years and I can't imagine whoever lost it was pleased about it. Needing a good sharpening I decided to go ahead and send in a few other Cutco knives that needed repair and sharpening. Your staff sharpened and polished the knives as well as repaired the tip of my paring knife (which of course I used for something I shouldn't have). The old knife looks great now, the only visible sign is some slight pitting on the rivots in the handle. I tell the story to anyone I know that has Cutco and none of them seemed surprised, but all are happy for me and my treasure find.
