Received these for a Christmas gift. I use Henckel Profi S at home, and was looking for a cheaper set to stash in my locker at the fire station. Using German Henckels, my standards are pretty high, and I have to say that these inexpensive knives were a pleasant surprise! They have good balance, and are most definitely ice-hardened stainless, same process as Henckels uses. Tradeoff with stainless is that you can't get quite as sharp of an edge, i.e. you probably couldn't shave with them, but they are well beyond adequate for most kitchen tasks. If you need razor sharp (sushi, filet knife, etc.), you will probably want something other than these for a couple of reasons. They come with a great edge right out of the box, but this stainless doesn't hold up quite as well as other stainless knives I've used. I have been surprised to see that the faces of the blades have scratched all over from handwashing with a green scrubby on one side of a sponge--I would never expect hard stainless to do that. I don't care about that cosmetically, but that just tells me that the steel is a bit softer, and I definitely have to hone and/or sharpen before preparation of each meal. I have definitely been spoiled by the abuse that Henckels will take before needing honing!

The downside in my opinion is the case. The knife pockets are created by sewing a piece of flat nylon stock to a flat backing, which leaves the threads fully exposed to the edges of the knives (there is no permanent insert in the sleeves). The knives come in thin plastic sleeves, and with a plastic cover on the tips, but these will probably be quickly lost or cut through. Replacing the plastic covers on the tips is not a good idea anyway, much like re-capping a needle.

After losing my beloved Shun Kaji knives in a divorce, I had to find a new set of knives for a bargain price more in line with my new budget. Being a Top Chef fan and foodie, I decided to take a chance and get this inexpensive set.

One thing I love about these knives is the nicely round shaped handles which are great for eliminating hand fatigue. I've recently been suffering with severe carpel tunnel and arthritis in my right hand which makes it hard to use most kitchen utensils for an extended amount of time without pain and hand fatigue. These knives I can use for hours without any pain.

These knives are also very sharp. I've cut, chopped, diced and minced carrots, potatoes, cheese, onions, etc., all with no problem. It was very important to me to have a knife that could cut a carrot with ease and these knives fit the bill. If you have any knife skills at all you should have no problem using these knives with ease.

So far, my set hasn't stained or discolored. Though, I always hand wash them with a soft cloth and dry them immediately.

I love the nylon carrying case as well, as it keeps my good knives out of sight from my fiance who used to grab my good knives to use for some outdoor project!

Overall, this is a good basic set at a great bargain price and they should work for any basic kitchen tasks. I love them.

Isabella, you need to do some research before smearing a product through ignorance.

These knives are X30Cr13 stainless steel, the same steel used in many high-quality chef knives, and it is decidedly NOT carbon steel.

If you honestly believe that stainless steel means it will never stain, you should likely drop out of culinary school and choose a vocation where you won't be exposed to such illogical concepts.

Stainless steel doesn't develop the patina that carbon steel does, and cannot be sharpened to the same razor edge. It stays brighter and is easier to clean, but can definitely stain or discolor with use.

These knives are an excellent bargain - I'll be using them as a Christmas gift, myself. I may even get several sets, depending on who needs them. :)

For research : [...]

I bought 7 of these knife packs for my Middle School Culinary Class. My students love them because now they each have their own case that they can take home, the knives are sharp, they have a sharpening rod to practice how to keep the blades in line, and the short knives fit well in their small hands. I think for the price these are a steal.

Here's my criticism, and keep in mind that I'm a professional Chef. I've cooked for two of the best restaurants in the world and I use knives all day and night – I have different needs than a home cook. The Chef's knife is not a true Chef's knife. It does not have the weight to carry through lots of prep work and the shape is better for chopping vegetables. In fact, it's really a veg prep knife and it's short in length so if you plan on chopping, let's say 4 carrots at a time, forget about it. And forget about trying to bone a chicken or filet a fish with it (yes there are specialty knives for that too, but a chef's knife should be all-purpose) the rounded nose of the knife is not appropriate for this. In fact the two biggest knives are the same but in different sizes. For me, with the amount of cooking I do, this would never work.

I also wish they would have left some pockets free in the knife pack so one could add a few knives or utensils to it as desired. Even a zipable pocket would have been nice for sharpies, or a mandoline, or other tools. Yes, I know, most people probably don't care – but I do!
