I did lots of research on what to look for in a quality knife set and found this one with almost everything I was looking for at a very reasonalbe price. They are high carbon stainless steel, have forged bolster, full tang, and also has a sharpener in the block set instead of having to buy it seperatley. After receiving them and putting them to use, I am even more pleased that I found them. Would definately recommend them.

I'm happy with my new knife set. They are lighter weight than they look, so they are a breeze to use, but still feel solid, and balance well in my hand. I purposely bought non-wooden handles so I can put them in the dishwasher, and after a half-dozen times there is no damage to their finish. The shape of some of the knives is very different to ones in my old set, and Im having fun learning new ways to use them. I kicked my old knife set to the curb!

Bought this for my mother's birthday. The knives are nice because the knife and whole handle are one solid piece of metal. No cheap rivets that will fall apart in a few years. The block is nice and not too large. I got is at $114 but I think $99 is the sweet spot for the quality and quantity. I'd buy it again.

I will start by saying that I purchased these for $99 which at $6.19 represents a great value-per-knife ratio. I still think they are a good deal at $139 - but come on, who pays $40 more than philyodaddy? NOBODY.

Here is a ranked order of things I look for in a Knife Set:
1) Sharp as hell
2) Sharp as hell
3) Sharp as hell
4) looks pretty

That is the entire list. I am not nearly proficient enough in the kitchen to have other requirements. The knives are sharp as hell. They cut the crap out of stuff. I enjoy showing off their sharpness to amazed visitors (more realistically, I just show my girlfriend over and over again). Look how easy it is to cut through lemons! You try! Case closed. They are also a pretty good looking knife set. I'm not sure I needed 16 knives, because I only know what about 8 of them do, but it is impressive looking and really makes people know that I'm the boss. I gave the 18-knife set as a gift and would probably recommend the 16-knife set instead.

I purchased them about 12 months ago, so I can only semi-objectively weigh in on the rust-issue (I have none at this point). Therefore my only real con at this point is that this point is that the block is really big and awkwardly fits in my small New York City kitchen. Please note the massive size before you follow me to sharpcity.

Absolutely fantastic set of knives. My husband is in awe of how sharp and how well they do the job. I'm so happy with the purchase and the price all the way to Australia. Amazon rocks.

These are excellent knives and I use this set daily. I love that they are single piece metal knives, I really didn't want a set with plastic or wood handles. These meet my needs 100% and are attractive while sitting on the counter in between uses.

I bought this item for my wife who loves to cook. The knives are made of sturdy one piece construction and have already been used extensively in the short time we have had them. The built in sharpener is also very convenient.

I purchased this knife set for my husband for Father's Day and he absolutely loved it. He's always wanted a Chicago Cutlery knife set and this was a pleasant surprise. The knives are sleek, stylish, sharp, lightweight and very easy to use no matter what your chopping. This was really a good buy!
