Rated 5 out of 5Â by imagebearer After shopping around and comparing price and quality of many Knife sets I settled on this one for my daughter. It is sharp looking having a contemporary look to it. I trust the name of this company for many years. The price was very good when compared to other brands from quality companies. I liked the fact that it isn't so big that it clutters up the counter. It had a nice amount of knives without excess. The one thing that would improve this set, but it wasn't a top priority with me, I would have liked a scissors included with it. This might have made it bigger than I would have liked so it wasn't a big deal.

I love this knife set! The knives were very sharp right out of the box, they're heavyweight, and my husband says they're well balanced. The only thing that I don't like about the set is the fact that the block is labeled with the names of the knives near the appropriate holding slot. It's only a minor problem, but I feel like it takes away from the sheek look that I was going for. We were thinking of trying the scrape them off in some way, but we just haven't gotten to that project yet. I'm still very happy with them though!

The stainless handles start to get rust spots if you don't wash and dry them immediately! I tried to scrub off the rust, but ended up removing the brushed finish on the handle. Also, I don't like the serrated steak knives. they are so hard to wash as they shred up my wash cloths. if you put them in dish washer they rust. plus the slots for the steak knives are too close together. The knives are very sharp and the block looks nice. I will keep them, but NOT high quality.

There is nothing more frustrating than buying a set of knives that look good but are not sharp. Since it happened to us twice before, I was a little nervous if these would live up to the look. They did! These knives are sharp! I have had a blast cooking, makes you feel like a true professional. I even recommended them to my mother and she just ordered some. Great buy.
