Many chefs and culinary students use Messermeister Meridian Elite knives as well as the other lines from the same maker. Messermeister's reps are in close contact with restaurants and culinary schools nation-wide. The prices are competitive, the steel is superb, and the design is, well, uh, cutting edge. It is not normally sold to the public, except online. Cutlery and More, online, carries it, also in open stock, and sets may be better priced than here. See the other online cutlery sites as well.

The only other members of the star quality knife club, in Europe that is, are such under the radar German cutlery makers such as Wusthof, Messermeister and F. Dick, the well-known Henckles having fallen from grace for no longer fully forging their knives. The only other knives that can compare are certain makers of exquisite, difficult to find smaller Japanese knife makers such as Global, Shun, Masahiro, Kikuichi, and Miyabi having the higher profiles, whose stars are on the rise in knife connoisseur circles.

On the other hand, to be straight with you, many chefs use stamped as opposed to expensive forged knives such as the excellent Global and Mack knives at the higher end and the respectable Victorinox-Forschner Fibrox economy line at the lower end. The Taiwan-made economy forged Mercer line is used in many culinary schools such as Le Cordon Bleu, and in restaurants. This is just to put things in perspective. You would be well advised to avoid residential/consumer knife lines such as Chinese-made Chicago Cutlery (My first kitchen knives and my first knife mistake). Also avoid Cutco knives that I used at a friend's house. Don't get me started on Rada and Ginsu, LOL!

I admit to being a kitchen knife aficionado and a self-taught know-some-of-it-all on the subject.

The knives themselves are great but I can't comment much on long term usage as I just started using them two days ago. Will try to update after some time. For the very small use I've given to them, the blades are very good and balance feels fine, but this too will need to wait until more use for me to be sure.

The -1 star is for the block, which looks like if it were completely non-related to the knives. It's uncomfortable and there isn't a clear way to organize them so the knives feel in their right position, and the scissor fits even worse. I prefer a magnet bar anyway, but just moved to the US and it wasn't an option for me at the moment.

Just as information, the knives are made in Germany while the block and the scissors are made in China. This isn't necessarily a problem, but may explain why the block seems too unrelated to the knives. Haven't used the scissors yet, but it looks as functional as it can get.

The seller in this case bares responsibility for my opinion in this case. I did not receive a 9 piece set; but a 13 piece starter set with mixed blades that can not be substantiated as real by a sioux chef. A little disgruntled, and very large feeling of vulnerability swept over me when I opened the box and saw only 1 Meridian blade with two numbers in the box, and none to the right side that would indicate true of a Meridian. When the blade was slammed into my board; no mark. When trying to stab the block to feel the pressure on the tang it was very unbalanced and clunky. A few weeks later and money back, I got an 11 piece set for only $50 more and am ecstatic about those knives.
