Product Description

Package Quantity: 1 | Size: 12 Piece

Part of Ginsu's Chikara line (which translates to energy and power), these knives are forged from a single solid piece of high carbon Japanese steel for superb quality. Japanese steel is known for its stain and rust resistance, strength, and its ability to hold an incredibly sharp edge. A great companion for mincing, slicing, and dicing a variety of ingredients, the 7-inch Asian-style Santoku knife has broad blade and especially sharp cutting edge as well as indentations that minimize friction and sticking. The traditional Japanese-style handles are made of heat and water-resistant resin and fit smoothly into your hand. Includes a 3.5" paring knife, a 5" utility knife, a 5" serrated utility knife, a 7" santoku, a 8" chef's knife, four steak knives formed with a resin bolster, kitchen shears and a honing rod in a bamboo block. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty

I am absolutely in love with this Chikara set. The first compliment I received came 5 minutes after it arrived and I set it on my kitchen countertop. The holder is a beautiful caramel color that the picture does not do justice. After 2 weeks of using this item, I can say that the 8 piece set is enough for someone who cooks a few times a day. The most useful knives that I have found is the 7-inch Santoku and 5-inch utility knife. I use the Chef's knife once in awhile but found that the Santoku does the work just fine. They come extremely sharp but for the edge to last longer, you should hone it after one heavy use or two light uses.

In addition, they are forged and not stamped. As a lifetime user of stamped knives, the fact that they are forged makes a huge difference. Each slice carries more weight the the old stamped knives. If you don't know the difference, google it. You'll find it informative.

Overall, these knives were a bargain for the burden of work they accomplish and look beautiful. They have sleek beautiful handles and are just the right size for a standard kitchen. They look and feel a lot more expensive than they are.

If you get this set, make sure you read up on how to treat your knives and it will last a lot longer. Here are some golden rules:

1) Hone your knives, Sharpen once a year.
They are various informative videos on Youtube that tell you how to HONE your knives. They should be done after every use to keep it sharp and long-lasting. Sharpening is only done once a year. The set comes with a steel rod which is okay for honing. It takes a few times to master it but once you do, your knives will stay sharp and your preparation time will be a fraction of what it used to be.

I have been a professional chef for over twenty years and have always reserved my good quality knives for use at work. I have had a few budget sets for home use over the years (since I worked a lot I didn't do enough cooking at home to justify spending $200-$300 for a high quality block set for the house). When I saw this set on Amazon, I was very skeptical; and as a chef, I really didn't want a set of "Ginsu" knives sitting on my counter. So I researched these knives on several different sites and decided to give them a try.
I am extremely satisfied with the performance of these knives and I am recommending them to all of my aquaitances. I was truly shocked to get such a high quality set of knives with great such great weight, strength, and balance for under $120.
Buy these knives.

This product was everything i expected, It is in Consumer Reports magazine as a best pick for a reason. Only flaw is that it does not come with a bread knife.

First off, I'm not a pro chef or anything just an occasional home chef. I do have a few really nice Wusthof Classic knives, but not a whole set. The other cutlery sets I have are cheap junk. I was looking for a quality set that wouldn't break the bank and these were rated very well by Consumer Reports and all the reviews were good. I've had them a few days now...

The Good:
When I took these out of the package, I was impressed by the feel in my hand and the weighting. I immediately hand washed them and tried them out. They cut very well and are very sharp. I especially like the handles. They have a nice feel and grip to them. Also, the handles are slightly longer than my Wusthof handles on the same size knives which I REALLY like. AT this point, I was REALLY excited about my new knives....

The Bad:
After being so excited, I did have a few issues arise. The biggest issue is that one of the steak knives is very noticeably shorter than the others (see my pictures posted on the product page at the top). It is not a huge issue because it still works, but when you pay almost a hundred dollars for cutlery, you expect a little more quality control than when you pay twenty five for a set. The second issue is with the "bamboo" block. I thought I was buying a bamboo block, but it turns out that only the outside it bamboo. The inside is a cheap white wood of some sort (see pictures poste). Again this does not affect the usage, but my expectation were set higher and I feel deceived.

If I had to buy them again....yes. A little hesitation, but in the end they are great knives for the money.

UPDATE: Customer Service was great! Didn't expect it to be an American company. They are sending me a replacement steak knife at no cost and I don't have to send them the short one.

The Good:
Excellent knives for $119. Good weight and balance of handle and blade. It feels great in your hand. Razor sharp but sharpening is a must before each use (or at least every other use). It may not have the prestige presence of a Wusthof or Henckels set on the kitchen counter, but it DOES NOT look cheap. Its Japanese design and bamboo block make it more of a resemblance of a Shun knives set. And Shun is actually more expensive than the two more popular brands.

The Bad:
Handle's finish becomes very flat and dull after wash. Dab a little oil on a paper towel and rub it on the handle and it will look fantastic without being slippery.

The Ugly:
The Ginsu name seems to make it sounds like a cheap TV offer knives set. But believe me it looks and performs like a $500 set.

***Best knives set for your money. You will not find a better knives set for $120 unless you find a set of high end Shun, Wusthof or Henckels for 85% off at a closeout sale somewhere.
