If you are expecting a heavy, durable knife.. this really isn't it. The weight is light (but they have a decent balance). The blades themselves tarnish easily. I have slight rust spots on the 2 knives I used and I had to buff them out.
All in all.. you can't really go wrong for $99.. but DO NOT pay full price or anything close to it. They are no better than a Chicago Cutlery Brand that you can pick up in Walmart or Kmart.
If you want quality knives, save your pennies and get a professional grade like Shun or Wusthof.
The point that made me take a star away is rust. After 2 washes, I noticed a rust spot on one of the knives. It isn't anything major and I haven't found it on all of them, but the fact that there's even a little rust after so few uses does concern me. To me, that should not be happening. Was it a defect with a single blade? Maybe - I don't seem to be having a problem with the rest of them yet. However, it does give me pause. Would I recommend buying these at suggested retail value? Not a chance. If you can get them for a good price though, I don't think you'll be disappointed, provided that you take care to thoroughly dry them and aren't looking for a heavy-duty samurai sword as part of your kitchen cutlery.
However, out of the box they wouldn't even cut a ripe tomato easily. It didn't do much better on a cucumber.
Even after using a steel (that I already had, because there is not one included in this set), it was only marginally sharper.
The lack of sharpness/ability to sharpen makes this set almost dangerous. (If a knife doesn't cut through something easily, you will compensate by using more force. And if something slips, you'll get cut.)
To add, the block seemed pretty wobbly. It wasn't very stable at all. I could see pulling out a knife and knocking it over.
Save your money and buy a good knife or two, rather than this incredibly mediocre set.

The knives and scissors work really well, but they have some rust spots on them. It seems like most knives now days that are stainless steel get rust spots. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Stivy
