I just received mine. So far it is doing so well. Very good quality. I'm very pleased! Highly recommend!
I purchased this set for my sis-in-law who is a fantastic cook, after prepping for her T'giving dinner. Her knives were pretty crumby, and I wished I had brought mine from home. I couldn't believe that a cook as fine as she didn't have a decent knife in her kitchen. So these were waiting for her under the C'mas tree. I understand she loves them and wonders how she did without them so long. So, buy a set for yourself, and splurge on your best friend, or favorite sis or bro-in-law. Then buy the sharpener for intermediate use and have the knives professionally sharpened about once a year.
Worth every penny! Seemed pricey at first, but not once they arrived and we began using them in the kitchen. Quality like this is always worth it.
OK, maybe great knives don't really change lives but they have changed the way I feel about food preparation. These knives are easy to hold and make cutting, chopping and mundane food preparation so much easier. These are a great investment for your kitchen. I could not find this small set at local culinary stores and do not need the sets with a larger number of knives. I am so glad Amazon had the perfect offering!
