Product Description

Amazon.com

Any person that has ever tried to slice the golden crust of a baguette with a paring knife, or to peel an apple with a chef’s knife, knows the importance of stocking a wide variety of cutlery in the kitchen. A single recipe may require four or five different knives to cut, dice, and slice with efficiency and ease. To cover this wide gamut, Ginsu offers a new comprehensive cutlery set. From the International Traditions cutlery line, the 14-piece set comes equipped with a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, 4-1/2-inch utility knife, 5-inch boning knife, 8-inch slicer, 8-inch chef’s knife, 8-inch bread knife, six 4-1/2-inch steak knives, kitchen shears, and knife block. With this wide variety of blades, the set makes a wonderful housewarming gift for a young family establishing their first household.

The blade of each knife was forged from Japanese 420 series stainless steel with full tang for increased balance and permanence. The hygienic stainless-steel construction resists rusting, staining, and corrosion. The craftsmen at Ginsu employ a specialized Symmetric Edge technology, notching matching serrations on both sides of the blade for enhanced precision and smoothness for left- and right- handed users alike. The balanced two-dimensional serration eliminates the need for sharpening these knifes. Stainless-steel handles are curved to provide an ergonomically-friendly hold for chefs. The knife block features sturdy hardwood construction to protect knives and permit quick access while cooking. For cleaning convenience, the knives are dishwasher- safe. Ginsu covers the set with a limited lifetime warranty. The knife block measures 8-1/2 by 6 by inches. The set weighs 9 pounds upon shipping. --Jessica Reuling

I am simply amazed at what people consider quality. If you look at most of these reviews they are basing the quality of these knives if they have rusted. One even called it cheap because it rusted.

Folks, these are forged knives made from 420 steel. You can only go up one more step in quality and retain the same hardness without using exotic metal processes. Low quality cutlery is generally made out of grades like 409 and 430.

Here's how it works. The sharpest knife is made out of high carbon steel. High carbon steel is the hardest and therefore also keeps its sharp edge longer. The more carbon in steel the more it is going to rust. Something with a lot of carbon is a standard metal shop file... the type of file that you use to sharpen you garden tools. Leave it out in the rain and you'll have more rust than you ever imagined. Most likely that same file is the hardest (and highest tempered) metal you'll ever hold in your hands.

To prevent rust you add chromium. The more you add the less it will rust. Once you add over 13% chromium you are legal to say you have "stainless steel." The only problem with adding chromium is the steel can not be tempered as hard. Chromium also adds "gumminess" (relative to hard steel) which makes sharpening difficult because it is like trying to sharpen chewed bubble gum. IOW, under a microscope you'd see little pieces that extend to the left and right instead to a fine point. You know, like the bubble gum stuck to the bottom of your shoes in a parking lot.

420 steel keeps the chromium level as close to 13% as possible. Why? So the steel can be hardened. Hardness is measured on a scale called the Rockwell Hardness scale. This steel can go up to a RC56 hardness. Henckels FourStar only goes up to a RC58.

I bought these knives(the steak knives), because I am left handed and most knives are serrated only on one side - so cutting is really unsafe - the knife cuts to one side. These are serrated on both sides and cut straight. Very sharp though - take care. I love them. Sleek design and I've received so many compliments on them. Much better than more expensive knives I've tried (and had to donate to charity). Wonderful!

These knives are amazing for the price. you can't beat it! they are sturdy, cut amazingly well, never need to be sharpened and i haven't had any problems with rust! I never put them in the dishwasher because i know that they would probably start to rust. its so easy just to hand wash them. Nothing will stick the to blade so its an easy rinse wipe and your done!! For anyone looking to buy great knives but don't want to spend a lot of dough, this is the buy for sure!

I've owned this set for a few months now, replacing a cheaper set of Farberware, and am highly-satisfied. They are attractive, well-made, have a nice heft, and continue to cut well without sharpening (which is one of the primary reasons I purchased them). Though dishwasher-safe, I have chosen to wash them by hand to both preserve the edge and eliminate any possibility of corrosion. Another tip I picked up is to place the knives in the block upside-down, so that you're not pulling the blade across wood every time you remove them. I don't do this with all of them, as it didn't look very aesthetic, but do with the three in the middle (utility knives) which get used the most. A very nice set, well worth the money, just what I was looking for.

I was in the market for a matching set of knives for light kitchen use, and I didn't want to spend a fortune, so I started looking through the reviews to see what I could find. This Ginsu set seemed to please a lot of folks, and it was very reasonably priced, so I ordered it.

The knives are a nice weight, and boy, are they sharp! The blades' edges are scalloped, so I don't know how one would be able to sharpen them, but the manufacturer claims that the knives should never need it. I am going to wash these by hand, since I now understand that knives should never go in the dishwasher. The block holding the set was a little stinky when I first unpacked it, but the smell quickly dispersed.

If you're like me, and you just want a utilitarian set that looks nice at a reasonable price, check this out!

I wasn't so sure about the "As seen on TV" name of Ginsu. I was worried that I would be getting flimsy, light weight knives, boy was I mistaken!! These knives have a nice heavy weight to them, and are not flimsy at all. They are very sharp right out of the box...I even have a cut on my finger to prove it! I am very satisfied with the look of this set, and have used them in the dishwasher without a problem. I have learned from other knives that if you use a little scouring powder such as Bon-Ami on spotted knives they will clean right up. I've not had to do that with this set yet. I am very pleased with this set, and couldn't imagine having knives that were any sharper!

My lastest purchase of the Ginsu Knives were a gift for my son and his wife. He bought me a set in 1989 while he was in the Army. They are still the first knives I reach for. Still as sharp as the day he gave them to me. They are the best knives I have ever had. I will only purchase the Ginsu Knives for myself or gifts because of their 50 year warrenty and quality.
