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.

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 Pattititten Great set of Knives!
These knives seem a tad pricey but are worth every penny. We wanted to have ONE nice set of knives that would serve all our needs. This set is it! Every knife we have used from this set has met or exceeded our expectations. They are attractive on our counter as well. The steak knives are not serrated and I have read complaints to that effect but they cut through steak like a hot knife through butter and worked just fine. Now I feel I can safely find new homes for all of my old knives and they are numerous. One word of caution.....these knives are SHARP!! both my husband and I have cut ourselves with first use.
