As background, I should mention that I own a LOT of knives ranging all the way from the Traditional German Makers (Henckels; Wusthof) to the currently-popular Japanese knives (Shun; Global) to REALLY expensive handforged custom knifes from master knive smiths in the U.S. and Japan.
However, I like to use serrated knives for some things, like steak.
The issue is that serrated knives are inherently disposable in my opinion. The serrated edge just cannot be maintained easily by the average consumer. These knives are often made using less expensive techniques like stamping, rather than forging. I have owned some relatively expensive serrated knives that have lasted for many years, but eventually the edges get too dull and then it is time to replace them.
Therefore I think one has to calibrate one's expectations for a serrated knife to reality.
That all having been said, when it came time to replace my Henckels streak knives I decided to go lower end this time around. So after reading a lot of reviews, I bought these Victorinox knives. Here are my thoughts:
PROS: They are ridiculously inexpensive - less than $6/knive. I cannot imagine that one could get a better knife for that little money. They arrive EXTREMELY sharp - dangerously so. After a month of fairly heavy use, they seem to be not as sharp (or dangerous) as when they first arrived, but they are still VERY sharp. It seems that the sharpness level has kind of "settled in" and I have not noticed much change after the first week or so. So I am optimistic that they will maintain their current level of sharpness for a long time.Read more ›
These knives have stayed sharp even in the face of dishwasher use. They are flexible and durable.
UPDATE: I just ordered my 3rd set (3/11/12) of these knives. I'll be using the latest set at my vacation home. The original sets bought over 2 years ago are still as sharp as the day they came out of the box.
UPDATE 2: At over 3 yrs old, they still perform remarkably, but they don't hold up well in the dishwasher (hence the warning to hand wash). The blades are now starting to look very ugly.
Bottom line, excellent knives... Sharp, diswasher safe, cheap.
