The human form, which combines humor with utility, is made of tough ABS plastic and stands a little more than 15 inches tall. Each of the five knife slots has an interior sleeve to protect the blades, and the unit utilizes a suspension system that prevents the knives from slipping.
Each set includes an eight inch chef knife, an eight inch bread knife, an eight inch carver, a five inch utility knife, and a three and a half inch paring knife. All are of heavy gauge, durable stainless steel with razor sharp cutting blades and hollow handles.
The Ex is offered in a choice of five colors: the original red, stainless steel color, black, apple green and pink, along with an upscale, premium chrome color unit.
On an initial order, the company will provide a sample of 20 sets. The typical minimum order is a pallet of 84 units, and it can contain an assortment of colors. The four colored units wholesale for $42 a unit, and the chrome plated wholesale for approximately $57 a unit. Wholesale pricing on large orders can be negotiated.
The suggested retail price for regular units is between $59.99 and $99.99. The chrome plated model generally retails for a $40 premium over the price of the other four models.
