I gave matching top-of-the-line Wustof chef's knives exactly once to a happy couple, ignoring the old superstition that knives can never be gifts but must be sold (take a penny in return at least). Particularly nasty divorce there. Knives symbolize severance of ties. PC or no. (That said, I've learned to keep a dime around on birthdays and Christmas in case a cute little Japanese parer turns up.)

For me there is nothing wrong with giving knife as gift as ling as the sender has no any intention.



Nothing would say here’s to a successful marriage than a set of non stab knives. I didn’t know that knives were not supposed to be given as gifts; we received three sets for our engagement.
If you received these as a gift, I’d be worried.

As a bride-to-be on a tight budget, I recently discovered an online bridal jewelry store called GlamForLess.com.
Though their website is plain and simple, I found some great deals on jewelry sets for me and my bridesmaids.

I think other readers on a tight budget may also find GlamForLess.com to be helpful.
You may want to check them out at http://www.glamforless.com/ and inform other readers about it.

Keep up the good work.

This is something not many people including me nver think about but it's a reality, we need to keep knives out of women hands.

I don't agree with non-stab knives having anything to do with a foreshadowing of a successful marriage or not. Knives are knives are knives are knives. A gift is a gift.:]

Tend to agree with Bridal Registry, knives are knives and gifts are gifts. However, your post was news to me and made me chuckle.

Bridal Registry

I think knives are perfectly acceptable! Afterall, we do need them!

I used this Bridal Registry site for my wedding and it was absolutely amazing. I was able to register for anything

Haha, where's the fun in a knife if you can't use it to defend yourself against intruders like in the movies?

In my country, giving knife as a gift means power. You are well respected.
