5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely nice set of knives!, January 4, 2012
This review is from: Ginsu Koden Series 14-Piece Cutlery Set with Black Block (Kitchen)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Our family has been in need of a new set of knives. The Ginsu Koden series is exactly what we needed. First, it's a complete set with six steak knives, three paring knives (of different lengths and widths) and three carving knives. Also included is a pair of shears and the block for holding the set.

The knives and shears are very sharp, which is of course what you'd like. The entire knife appears to be stainless steel except for the small black plastic piece at the butt end of each knife. The shears are plastic with metal cutting edges attached. The block looks to be some sort of painted wood. The paint job is excellent, but I question how long the paint will look good. Plastic might look better and probably last longer (appearance-wise) but might not be heavy enough for the knives. We'll wait and see on the block. It's a flat black, so I guess I can re-paint it if necessary.

Since I've only had the knives a little while, I can't testify about the durability. They are rated dishwasher-safe and have been run through "pot-scrubber" mode without any problem. I will update the review after I've had some experience with them, but right now they appear to be an excellent set of knives that will last a very long time!
