I left a one-star review for the seller, River Road, with a detailed explanation as to why.
I'm especially pissed off that there's a stick-on label on the outside of the clear plastic clamshell package that says "Chef Knife made in France," which was apparently intended to cover the words on the label inside the clamshell that says, "Manufactured under license by Lifetime Brands, Inc., Garden City, NY 11530, Made in China."
It's packed up and ready to go. At least returns are free.
p.s. -- don't blame Amazon, but do be cautious about buying anything from third-party sellers who advertise on Amazon.
