Absolutely Awesome Cookie Cutters - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I checked out their web site and those are some beautiful cutters yet I find that they are pricey!! I like to get my cookie cutters from another family business that has over 700 designs! They are not copper, yet they are very nice and not too pricey for my taste. Check it out: www.foosecookiecutters.com.

I'm afraid I'm gonna hafta disagree with you. IMHO -- the ecrandal cutters are NOT pricey! These are COPPER cutters, not TIN. Copper is very expensive these days. These are exquisitely crafted, by hand, not mass produced with machinery. They are beautifully, carefully and lovingly packaged. Their shipping is also very reasonable. Plus, the cutters will never, ever rust!

I have LOTS of cookie cutters -- both copper and tin. I've ordered many Foose cutters; they have cute designs and are well made. I think it's just one of those things. Some folks feel they're costly and are perfectly happy with, and even prefer, tin. There are things to appreciate about both types of cutters.

I can't find that thread either. I'll keep looking. Someone mentioned a while back he was retiring (might be the link we're looking for), but the site was still up at that time and there was no word of it. I thought maybe it was a mistake. Too late!! Here is a new thread about them.

Here are some of his cutters on Ebay. They were very expensive on his site, so I can't imagine what they'll be once people start bidding.

I'd LOVE this set of ice skaters, but a little too much for my pocketbook unfortunately!

I'm pretty sure Fairytale on here did some of the decorating on his website.

I thought he even named one of his cutters after her. I think it was an elf.

I was hoping to someday own one of his icon_cry.gif


Have you seen Hammersong cutters? They look almost as unique as Simons.

I have the website where you can order them somewhere on my computer. I'll post it later.

You can find Simon cutters on ebay as someone else mentioned but they are very expensive.I myself can't come to pay $45.00 and up for a copper cutter...but I guess if you are a collecter it's like any other hobby and we all know hobbies are expensive!!!

I'm glad you all love the Simon's cutters. Yes, I did do the decorated cookies on their home page. The "Elfie Jan" cutter was named for me and I was really honored. John and Debi are the most wonderful people I know and the quality of John's work is amazing. Works of art.

Unfortunately I'm getting the same thing. Looks like his web site is not up. If you look in my album you can pretty much spot the cookies I've made with his cutters.

Jan,
I love the elf. I think it was Honeydukes who also said it was one of the cutters she wanted. I wish I had known John was retiring in time for me to order more cutters. Of course, I would have broken the bank, but it would have been worth it. Now I just have to wait and check ebay to see if anyone is selling any that are on my wish list.
I do have a small collection of Simon's cutters and I love each and every one of them. John is a true artist. I hope he is enjoying running the ice cream shop with his daughter, but we will all miss him. John and Debi have taken the website down. Too bad there isn't a book with all the Simon's cutters and the story and the inspiration behind each of them.
I have seen quite a few Simon's cutters in your cookies. Your cookies are beautiful.

Yes, John is a true artist. I've never seen work like his. Very inspired. I'm so glad you treasure your cutters.
