When I first saw this product a couple of years ago there were never pictures of the sheaths on the back of the little guy. I never noticed it in the pictures here on amazon and when I got it I was shocked they changed the design. Luckily they break really easily and the knives are held in place by some strong magnets inside the hollow plastic shell. This thing is also friggin huge so be prepared to make some counter space for it.

I got this as a gift for my girlfriend who loved it until we got it out of the box. The plastic guy is hollow and feels cheap. The plastic sheath for the knives that stick out the back of the guy are ugly and take away from the appearance. The magnets that are supposed to help hold the knives in place aren't always strong enough and I usually find that the knives have fallen off them and are resting on the blade in the plastic sheath. The knives rust easily and often so they must be a very low grade stainless steel and they dulled very quickly. All around I was extremely disappointed. This is not worth anywhere near $70, I should have returned it when I still could but I was still caught up in the novelty of this product for the first week that the knives still cut anything. I have to sharpen these things way too often. For the people who said these knives were good, they could only mean when compared to a plastic butter knife.

I bought The Ex strictly because of the holder. To my delight, the knives are good quality. I made hot wings yesterday, and cutting through them was like butter. I had The Ex on my wish list for two forevers, I only wish I had gotten it sooner. You won't be disappointed. The ONLY caveat I would mention is to be sure to measure the distance between the countertop and your cabinets. The Ex is tall. Mine fit snugly, but if you have low cabinets, you might have a problem.

This piece is a bit larger than I expected but it's still a unique addition to my kitchen. The knives are top quality! I definitely recommend as a gift or for personal use.

I couldn't be happier if it could bleed. What a great knife set, high quality knives in a comical stand.

After looking through hundreds of knife sets online, I stumbled upon The Ex. Not only is it a well designed and humorous piece to any kitchen, it's slices, stabs, chops, pares, and skins its way into your heart. It's also sold at an unbeatable price. I originally had my heart set on a magnetic knife stand but was swayed after seeing the originality in this unique knife block.
The Ex comes with 5, quality stainless steel knives that serve different purposes. I, personally, have not put the knives to use but have gotten a chance to hold them and examine their quality. The knives have no special handle so your hands are exposed to the cold, shiny steel which proves to be more beneficial to its aesthetics rather than it's function. Wet, slippery hands could pose a bloody problem if the user isn't careful. The five knives are an 8-inch chef's knife, 8-inch bread knife, 8-inch carver, 5-inch utility, and 3-1/2-inch parer. Each knife is protected by a clear sleeve that is attached to the back of the figure for added protection when the knives are on display. The designers have even gone as far as inserting hidden magnets inside the slots for each knife so that when ruthlessly stabbing your figure, you encounter a sometimes surprising jolt from your unfortunate friend.
The Ex requires very little assembly out of the box. Two nuts that can be tightened by hand allow the figure to prop upright on its planted stand which has rubber feet to prevent your figure from sliding away. Once assembled, it's pleasantly large. In my kitchen, it was just able to slide under my low rise cabinets.
The Ex comes in Red, Black (my choice), Pink, Chrome, and White.
In my apartment, it is always a conversation starter. A great way to reveal the dark-humour from within.

Everyone thinks the holder is fun and the knives are good quality. The holder is plastic and not as strong as I expected but I'm still happy

I received this set as a house-warming gift and just loved the twisted concept. Having now used the knives in my kitchen for a year and a half, I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews I've read. I use my knives constantly for French and Italian cuisine. The stand has stood up wonderfully, the magnetic holders have never dropped the knives, the knives show no rust, and all but paring knife have held an excellent edge. I have taken my knives with me to cooking classes where I could compare them to more expensive sets and I think they compared favorably. No, they are not going to cut quite as sweetly as a $200 professional chef's knife, but close enough considering the price. You'll still chiffonade parsley (which requires a *very* sharp edge) and de-bone chickens with relative ease. Maybe what some people do not realize is that for *any* knife to stay sharp, it should be run across a honing rod *after each use*. Your cutting board is the enemy of your knife's edge. Touch up your knives after each use and this set will serve you well for a long time and make your guests think twice about insulting your cooking. ;-)

Update for February 2014: Yep, nearly four years later and I would still recommend these knives. Last year, I had the chef's knife and the utility knife resharpened by a professional and he commented on the great quality of these blades. With the new edge he put on them a year ago, they are as good as new and a joy to work with.
