I purchased the 61S pre-2001 from an outlet store in Arizona. The construction was fantastic (good balance, heft, handle form) and it has served us well for more than 15 years. So when it came time to get knives for my daughter when she went off to college, I found the 61SP online (6E15M stamped on the blade next to Chicago Cutlery logo). The construction difference of the newer SP was noticeable...the wood was a little blockier and rougher, the blade was courser with a shorter main blade bevel, but it was still seemingly sharp and balanced well. After 6 or so months, the blade on the newer SP has started to rust higher up on the heel (not the edge). Then, the middle of the three rivets fell out, like it was made of substandard brass or something. Note that my daughter treats her knives like I taught her--handwash only, dry the blade, never store wet. And she used it only infrequently in the dorm (unlike my original utility knife which I use nearly every day and is holding up fantastically).

My understanding is that World Kitchen acquired the CC name in 2003, moving manufacturing from Milwaukee, WI (USA) to somewhere in China. That would be OK if the newer knife held up even half as well.

To their credit, however, they are honoring the lifetime warranty and sending out a replacement. The fact that they completely stand behind their product does speak volumes for their customer service, so +1 star from my original 2 star ranking. They also recommended using Barkeeper's friend on the blade to keep it from rusting. If the replacement holds up well, I will revisit and raise my rating.

            I have my original set from 1983 that came with this knife, I used it all the time and finally the handle broke, I contacted customer service and was given a new knife with no problems. They stand behind the lifetime replacement policy. I could have a more expensive set, but after all these years keeping them sharp they work just fine!

            I expected the knife to be a sharper than it is. Could have used something that was a little better and made cutting easier.
