Guy Fieri cookware

Guy Fieri spends most of his time on TV eating foods from diners, drive-ins and dives -- not cooking. While he does own several of his own restaurants and is a chef, his reputation is really built on endorsing eateries. So it's a bit hard to figure out why, exactly, you'd want cookware with his name scrawled across it. Especially a knife that looks like it was designed for something other than cooking.
