All in all, 3 stars for me, but it really depends on the task.

I use one of them for mixing epoxy and such, and I haven't had any issue as far as functionality is concerned. This should be an OK set for painting. If this is all I do with them, I would have given them 3.5 stars.

I also use these kind of things to work glue into narrow seams for repairing wooden musical instruments, which sometimes needs some force. For this purpose, this set is not up to the task. The blades are fine, the issue is the ferrule and the handle. 2 stars for this.

Here are some potential issues (see my picture):

1. Ferrules are not particularly tight and handle is made of some not-so-hard wood.
This means that, if you use these with some lateral force, you'll crack the handle. That already happened on me once.
This shouldn't be a problem for mixing paint, epoxy, putty etc. at all, though.

2. Compared with my pricier (probably $10 per piece) painting knives, these have rougher blade surface (they have some scratch marks).
I'm OK with this.

3. Edges of some blades had fine burrs.
I needed to pass the edge on a fine sand paper several times.

4. Handles of some of the knives were badly marked as if the worker screwed up when trying to fit the ferrule.
Doesn't affect the functionality.

I needed a specific size palette knife and ordered this set since it included the one required. When the set came, it was poorly packaged and instead of the five different palette knife shapes, two were the same. Fortunately the one I need was there, but beware if you are looking for all the styles, you may be surprised by what you get in the package. The quality control is not good although the knives themselves are OK.

I was worried about this set being flimsy, since I was not able to hold them in person before making my purchase, but on the contrary they are sturdy and perfect for doing the job. Love to paint with them!

Although this product says on the packaging that it is "artist approved", I don't see how that is possible. It is an inferior set of painting knives, poorly made, and not very functional as painting knives. Edges on the blades are rough rather than being smooth. Wood handles are loose and one of the knives came apart after only a few minutes of trial use. I can't imagine which artists would approve this product, but this artist does NOT approve.

Lasted about two days before they all broke. Ok if you need it for one application. I kind of knew they were not going to be long lasting, and they were not.

I've only had these for a few days, so take this with a grain of salt, but I wouldn't recommend these for a serious artist. The metal is thick and not very well crafted. I've just started painting with knives and I was lucky enough to have two good ones to start with, but I needed some variety so I thought I'd try these.

I'm just not getting the quality of stroke that I was getting from my other knives.

This is the first time this happens with something sold by Amazon, but is unacceptable. The package was open and just one part taped again (And pretty bad by the way), also the product was used, the handles had the numbers a bit erased and in general the whole thing looks like it was bought at a garage sale... I'm hoping the product at least works, but I did not bought a used, unpackaged product. This is absolute crap for a serious company, I'd expect that from a sketchy seller but not from something labeled as "Sold By Amazon"

Artist supplies tend to have a significant mark-up which is fine when purchasing a top of the line paint or canvas but who wants to spend more money on knives? I don't! Let's face it, they tend to wear out over time if for no other reason than the harsh chemical cleaners. I thought I'd give this a try just because of the price; the entire five pieces cost only a little more than one knife at my local art supply store. I was concerned over the quality - it's more than adequate although nothing to get excited about.

Handles are wood and finished but little more. The metal is flexible but firm. I actually prefer a bit less flexibility but given the price, these suffice just fine. Easy to clean and work as intended. A very good option for those searching for value priced items without totally sacrificing all quality.
