First off, NO Chinese knife is EVER going to appreciate. Low value to begin with translates to even lower value after they age. Doesn't matter if you hermetically seal them under Funk & Wagnell's porch for a hundred years; crap remains crap. Frost claims to ship 7 million knives a year. Has done so, according to them, for at least the last 6 years. Excluding the other 35 years they've been in business, and sold lord knows how many millions, even if they were decent enough quality, 42 million knives are never going to be considered collectible. As an enduring testimony to stupidity, well maybe they'd be worth something then.
PS: Please remember that EVERYTHING you see and hear on Cutlery Corner is a lie. Back when they were pushing assisted-opening knives, they began spreading the rumor that such knives were soon to be outlawed. That caught them heat from many venues, as it was a boldfaced lie and contrary to what honorable knife makers are trying to do, namely educate the public to what their rights truly were.
Now its another big lie; "...mother of pearl and abalone are getting scarce so you better order now." Warehouses are overflowing with BOTH, and pricing has never been better, so in order to compete with honest knife-makers Frost lies.
"..most of these knives will never be re-manufactured again. What? What'd I say? Well they won't be. Oh. Most of these knives will never be MANUFACTURED again, not that we re-manufacture any of our knives we just manufacture them and sometime don't ever re-manufacture them ever again. Huh? What? What'd I..."
