The concept is great, but the delivery not so much. The knifes are not great (poorly balanced, not too sharp, not ergonomic). I would have been willing to forgive that for the "look" value, but I was disappointed with that as well. First, the stand is very large and needs lots of counter space to look OK. Second, the stand is made out of cheap-looking plastic and the knifes look cheap as well. Overall, not the cool looking piece I thought it would be, it's more on the tacky side.

My friend purchased one of these online a couple of years ago - and her's was much heavier. This is made of very light plastic.

People always notice this in my kitchen. And my kitchen is a showplace. So it really says something. Not because it is green and stands out either. I get a range of responses. Giggles, nervous laughter, skittish looks around the room, and the BEST reaction, pure laughter. It is most definitely a conversation piece and good to keep people thinking positive thoughts, you know, just in case they were thinking anything else. When noticed, I always proudly announce, "Oh yeah, that's the EX knife set."

I purchased this item a few years ago and at first was very pleased with the product. I was also pleased to see that it came with a 25 Year Limited Warranty! However, more recently one of the plastic shield tabs broke and all of the knives have started to rust, the quality is not what you would expect from something with a 25 year warranty! I have had no luck contacting this manufacturer to file a warranty claim. All of my emails have been sent back as "unable to send" and I'm pretty sure the mailing address on my original warranty is no longer accurate. This is extremely disappointing as I would like to have my knife set replaced without buying a new one. The price has tripled over the years and I've noticed the second generations have a significantly shorter warranty listed in the product descriptions. CSB Commodities, if you see this please contact me!

If you are a serious chef looking for a quality set of kitchen knives these are not for you. The knife block is made of inexpensive plastic and the knives are light weight and not well-balanced. They will do just fine for someone who does not cook a lot and only needs to slice/dice/chop occasionally. I purchased this set as a gift and intended for it to be more of a conversation piece. I paid $19.99 on sale with free shipping and at that price I consider it a good value and feel like I got my money's worth.

The knives arrived much sharper than I expected for a "novelty" item like this. The plastic is hollow and light weight, but is plenty sturdy for what it does. Also, it is bigger than most people will realize at first. Check the dimensions before you buy.

Sometimes a product is purchased not for its utility but for its impact. This baby has impact! Even if this showed up and the knives didn't cut through soft butter, I would still be a happy camper.

If you require knives for a purpose other than impressing your party guests you can steer clear of this, but if you want to throw a stamp of uniqueness in your kitchen, this is money well spent. Sometimes art is just fine hanging out and looking pretty.
