Product Description

Product Description

Chicago Cutlery Cabrera 12 Piece Block Set

Amazon.com

The Carbera line from Chicago Cutlery features traditional three-rivet styling, yet the handles are made of white polymer for a clean, bright, contemporary look. Even the slots in the hardwood storage block are lined with the white polymer, while the top is surfaced with stainless steel. A chrome bar supports the block in front. Each knife features a forged, high-carbon stainless-steel blade that has been honed with the company's exclusive Taper Grind technology for optimum sharpness. The full-tang construction adds weight and strength for good balance and stability.

Along with the hardwood block, this 12-piece set includes the following 11 utensils: four steak knives; 3-1/2-inch paring knife; 5-inch utility knife; 5-inch partoku; 7-inch santoku; 8-inch serrated bread knife; kitchen shears; and 8-inch sharpening steel. A partoku, for those unfamiliar with the term, is a combination paring knife and santoku, the Asian-style, thin-slicing chef's knife that has become a staple of American kitchens in recent years. Chicago Cutlery recommends hand-washing its knives, and covers them with a limited lifetime warranty. With the utensils placed in the block, the set measures 13 by 4-1/2 by 12 inches. --Ann Bieri

Let me preface this by saying that I am not an expert on knives and as such don't know how this set would compare to a more expensive set.

What I can say is that my wife and I are enjoying using this set of knives. The sudoko configuration is very easy to use in chopping vegetables- very sharp and light. It made fast work of some carrots and celery. I have yet to use them on something tougher like bone. The scissors are also very easy to use- they came very sharp as well.

The set itself takes up very little space on the counter top and the knives look attractive.

I bought it for 40 bucks as a lightning deal and have no regrets.

Got this set a few months ago at the Gold Box price. Not bad compared to what similar would cost at retail. Free shipping was good. Had noted a couple of reviews after I ordered the set spoke of a "missing knife." When I got my set, I checked the contents and noted the bread knife was missing. I sent an email to the parent company of Chicago knife listed in the literature. Got a reply a couple of days later, sorry for the missing knife, they would send one. Actually got it about 8 weeks later. Better late than never. No charge. Complain, folks, complain!!!

The main reason I picked this if for the combination. I like the santoku and partoku knives. Overall the white plastic is pretty cheap looking and is not finished well. You see flash all over the edges whch could have been easily trimed where ever this was manufactured. Besides the not so contemporary design, the knives are good.

Great set of knives - only 10 knives came - I was able to find the missing one at target - so lightning deal ended up costing retail anyway.....

Excellent set for the price. The knifes are sharp and do their job very well. Don't wash them in dishwasher and sharpen them once in a while to keep them as new.

This is my second set of Chicago Cutlery, as my previous (wood handled-) set of ten years of age has become well worn about the oak handles. The clean hard plastic handles of this set will probably last much longer. All the knives are extremely sharp in keeping with Chicago's history. I have no doubt they are made in China (at this price), although I see no documentation as to origin. Only one large-sized knife has a serrated edge, which I tend to dislike as they are difficult to sharpen. The scissors, -easily taken apart for cleaning, are extremely well crafted.

I got a great deal thru Amazon, received the set right away (impressive considering it was in December). Only problem was the bread knife was missing. We called Chcago Cutlery and they are sending one out. I've never cut with a knife so sharp in my life. Love 'em!

I bought this knife set to replace a low-end set and I'm extremely pleased with it. I chose it over comparatively priced sets and sets that cost $200 or more because it gave me what I wanted: a variety of quality stainless knives with composite handles that included a santoku and partoku and carried a lifetime warranty. I compared it to sets from Ginsu, Faberware and others, as well as other Chicago sets. The knives are all light weight and feel very sturdy, their blades are sharp from factory, and the extras are nice too. The stainless trimmed block is attractive, and the white handles are a nice touch, a departure from the black composite or dark wood you most commonly find. In stores, you won't find a set of knives that can compete with the Cabrera at this price by a long shot.

The five prep knives (santoku, partoku, bread, utility, and paring) are forged, the four steak knives are stamped, and the shears - which separate for washing without tools, very important - are fabulous. You can not find a set better than this for under $200. While this is still around, get it. Gift it. No one will know you got it for under $45.
