Found this in BHS Dundee yesterday label stated £70 reduced to £24, this was then reduced to £18. I thought maybe one of these items that are marked up as way high but never sell at this. So just left it. Then went to Homebase in Dundee and found this on sale for £55.

Amazon also have this on sale at £36 so looks to be a bargain, a similar 8 piece set is on sale in Debenhams on sale at £35.

Not sure if prestige is a good make but for £18 it's a bargain

Proof of purchase will be included in first post.

Made from the finest Japanese steel, the taper ground blades Prestige Knives make Precision cutting simple, the ergonomic design means they're easy to handle even when dicing the thickest vegetables or cuts of meat.

Tried searching online through their website but cannot find any knife sets on their website so assuming store only deal.

Quite annoying as they have a few discount codes online could have got it even cheaper, I'm assuming it's store only they scanned at £18 so assuming it's not store specific.

I missed the Tescos glitch on kitchen stuff recently and now this one. I have been holding out for a good set. My local store never had these in so there is probably not many sets out there.

Good to hear, have you tried them in the dishwasher? Heard there get ruined by the dishwasher, How much were Sainsburys?

Thanks

I have this knife set and it's great. Had it about 3 years now and everything still in good shape

We've had our Prestige knives for a few years - good quality stuff. Been washing them in the dishwasher for about 6 months and they seem to be withstanding that fine. Bit of wear on the handles but that's it really.

Thanks thats what it had said in the reviews online wear on the handles from the dishwasher, will probably stick to handwashing them as they are used.

Glad to hear there good quality though fed up with my old rubbish knifes

Looks like it may possibly be store-specific due to the hand-written sticker.

I got this set from Asda for £12 a while bk..... Really good set of knives and defo worth £18

There was no sticker over the barcode, it was the barcode that was scanned and £18 it went through at on the till.

RRP 70 ha ha. Knife sets always seem to be deliberately priced too high so that they look like a good special offer (for Father's Day gift on this occasion?). £18 seems a good and realistic price. Heat

Yeah definitely, I did see them an hour later in Homebase priced at £55 though, kicked myself at that time that i never bought them and save me the trip today.

In terms of this offer for £18 they are 50% more expensive than I picked them up for from Asda, so for me this deal is unfortunately cold.

Distinguishing between the deal and the product, I found when they came out the dishwasher blotches of rust appeared, particularly on the largest knife.

Definitely hot in terms of price, bit harsh to vote cold because you've had them cheaper before, Was about 6 months ago they were that price and around Christmas when ASDA was no doubt trying to get as many people through their door as possible.

But everyone entitled to their own opinion

Just got these, thanks OP. The blade on the chef knife isn't amazing, I do prefer heavier blades, but for 18 quid a definite bargain.

Slough - south east, so deffo national!

that's a lot of knifes
good value, I got a 5 piece set from Argos for £12

Still got quite a few in Crawley, got one as I left work just before six.

Thanks OP

I stand corrected, then. Voted hot.

Used these knifes last night and they were brilliant, Might just be that my knifes before were crap though i had always thought they were very good but the knife was just sliding through with ease.

Bought these from Sainsburys last year for £20 (original price was £40) - look very cheapish thought(_;)

You call that a Knife?

£75!! typical bhs. they were in sainsburys with rrp of £20-something, maybe £30. i picked up the set without the steak knives for £15, but defo have some heat for the find, i would have happily paid the extra £3 for this set.
