View Full Version : Knife Disposal ( Anticipating Spyderco Kitchen Knives)
08-19-2012, 08:14 AM
What should I do with a collection of craptacular kitchen knives recently cleaned out of our kitchen drawers? I'm not really keen about throwing them in the trash and there are plenty of scrapers/glue mixers etc in the garage.
We have some good kitchen knives in a counter top knife block and a block in a drawer. We also had an a 40+ year old accumulation of other knives. We wanted to make room in anticipation of Spyderco marketing a new line of kitchen knives. (No pressure. :eek:)

Personally I'd donate them to a local soup kitchen or a place along those same lines.

i put them to the grinder to make shove knives for the guys at work. the ones we can buy look like this
but they stink so i make my own:). since you probably dont need them the donation mentioned above probably makes more sense ;)

Not sure they are good enough to donate for use, but that is a good idea. I like the Push Knife suggestion, I think some might be good candidates.

What about re-grinding and THEN donating them OR selling them off on ebay for charitable benefit? The primary expenses there are your time for the refinishing and the postage for shipping to buyers.

Thrift store. They were good enough for you to use prior to buying new ones...someone else will put them to the same use.

I recently did this for some really banged up old kitchen cutlery we had for 40+ years. I just did a quick pass on the grinder to dull the edges and then dropped them in the recycling bin.

You can use the blade steel to make new knives, might as well not get rid of them...

Thanks for all the suggestions, what didn't go into the garage for scrapers and glue mixers were packed up and donated back in August.
