Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dirlwee Sharp, In More Ways Than One
As many others have said, these knives are sharp. Haven't used the sharpener yet, b/c of course the knives haven't dulled yet. I'm a little apprehensive about that, wondering if the one reviewer broke tips off using the sharpener. Going to be extra careful when I do use. The set is very attractive, and I'm hoping to have and use it for a long time to come. Been washing and drying immediately to avoid the rust spots some complained about. So far very happy with these knives.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by BLGM Easy to care for with blade and handle all one.
This steel knife set with sharpener in block is very nice. It is Chicago Cutlery and I always favor their craftmanship. The only problem I found was a small chip in the top edge of the blade which does not affect its' performance as a knife. Another had a small discoloration, very small from heat burn, again it does not affect the performance. Those are the only reasons I gave it a good rating. Other than that I love all other aspects of that knife set, the inblock sharpener, the scissors with the can opener and pryer built into the handles, how the blades separate for easy cleaning. They are attractive and well balanced.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by WaMomOfThree Love Chicago Cutlery
I have only owned Chicago Cutlery knives since I was 19. I had purchased a set similar to this years ago. I gave all of them to my sister except one all purpose knife when she got her first place and had no knives. I found over the years, eventhough I had a full new Chicago set, that I used that one knife about 90% of the time. I am so pleased to have this particular set again. The knives are not super heavy which I like but they cut amazingly. Having the blade and handle forged into a single piece is great. And not having the traditional black handles with rivets is a plus since I found they split after a while. As far as people not being happy with their sets, I found their reviews said that they had put them in the dishwasher. Anyone who knows anything about knives and cookware knows you should always wash those items by hand. Dishwasher detergents are VERY hard on these types of items and will destroy them over time, just like not using a polyethylene cutting board, which helps keep the blades from dulling. I am in love with these and happy with them and I use them daily several times a day.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Racketman Great Set !!!
I bought this set because I was tired of using poor quality knives. I must say now that I have had these for a few months I'm VERY impressed with them. Every knife that I have went to use has been with ease. The knives are very sharp.I would recommend these knives to anyone that is looking for a quality knife set that is not that expensive.
