The Original Ginsu!
Ladies and gentleman. I am pleased to present the product and commercial that started the modern day infomercial. Thats right, I’m talking about the Original Ginsu knife! The knife was a creation of the combined talents of Ed Valenti and Barry Becher that combined good product and offbeat marketing to create a genuine cultural phenomena. If your feeling a bit nostalgic you can still even buy them at ginsuguys.com. Enjoy!
Fun fact: The original knives were produced in Fremont Ohio, hometown of infomercial personality Tony Little.
