Pros: Design, Construction, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Overall Quality
Bought this item as a wedding gift
I enjoy cooking and preparing nice meals from scratch. The main cutting knives are lighter than German blades but are functional for the new pioneer in the kitchen. The wood handles are nice looking and should not be washed in the dishwasher or over time the finish will degrade. What I looked for was the connection between the blade and the handle where food can accumulate. With these knives, no food can accumulate. That's a big plus.The blades are smooth and lend themselves to sharpening with a sharpening steel or fine wheel. The four steak knives I would replace with something else since they are light and serrated and kind of cheap. I am not a fan of serrated blades. Overall, the package is worth the money.
