Product Description

Size: 12 Piece

Part of Ginsu's Chikara line (which translates to energy and power), these knives are forged from a single solid piece of high carbon Japanese steel for superb quality. Japanese steel is known for its stain and rust resistance, strength, and its ability to hold an incredibly sharp edge. A great companion for mincing, slicing, and dicing a variety of ingredients, the 7-inch Asian-style Santoku knife has broad blade and especially sharp cutting edge as well as indentations that minimize friction and sticking. The traditional Japanese-style handles are made of heat and water-resistant resin and fit smoothly into your hand. Includes a 3.5" paring knife, a 5" utility knife, a 5" serrated utility knife, a 7" santoku, a 8" chef's knife, four steak knives formed with a resin bolster, kitchen shears and a honing rod in a bamboo block. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty

I am absolutely in love with this Chikara set. The first compliment I received came 5 minutes after it arrived and I set it on my kitchen countertop. The holder is a beautiful caramel color that the picture does not do justice. After 2 weeks of using this item, I can say that the 8 piece set is enough for someone who cooks a few times a day. The most useful knives that I have found is the 7-inch Santoku and 5-inch utility knife. I use the Chef's knife once in awhile but found that the Santoku does the work just fine. They come extremely sharp but for the edge to last longer, you should hone it after one heavy use or two light uses.

In addition, they are forged and not stamped. As a lifetime user of stamped knives, the fact that they are forged makes a huge difference. Each slice carries more weight the the old stamped knives. If you don't know the difference, google it. You'll find it informative.

Overall, these knives were a bargain for the burden of work they accomplish and look beautiful. They have sleek beautiful handles and are just the right size for a standard kitchen. They look and feel a lot more expensive than they are.

If you get this set, make sure you read up on how to treat your knives and it will last a lot longer. Here are some golden rules:

1) Hone your knives, Sharpen once a year.
They are various informative videos on Youtube that tell you how to HONE your knives. They should be done after every use to keep it sharp and long-lasting. Sharpening is only done once a year. The set comes with a steel rod which is okay for honing. It takes a few times to master it but once you do, your knives will stay sharp and your preparation time will be a fraction of what it used to be.

I have been a professional chef for over twenty years and have always reserved my good quality knives for use at work. I have had a few budget sets for home use over the years (since I worked a lot I didn't do enough cooking at home to justify spending $200-$300 for a high quality block set for the house). When I saw this set on Amazon, I was very skeptical; and as a chef, I really didn't want a set of "Ginsu" knives sitting on my counter. So I researched these knives on several different sites and decided to give them a try.
I am extremely satisfied with the performance of these knives and I am recommending them to all of my aquaitances. I was truly shocked to get such a high quality set of knives with great such great weight, strength, and balance for under $120.
Buy these knives.

This product was everything i expected, It is in Consumer Reports magazine as a best pick for a reason. Only flaw is that it does not come with a bread knife.

First off, I'm not a pro chef or anything just an occasional home chef. I do have a few really nice Wusthof Classic knives, but not a whole set. The other cutlery sets I have are cheap junk. I was looking for a quality set that wouldn't break the bank and these were rated very well by Consumer Reports and all the reviews were good. I've had them a few days now...

The Good:
When I took these out of the package, I was impressed by the feel in my hand and the weighting. I immediately hand washed them and tried them out. They cut very well and are very sharp. I especially like the handles. They have a nice feel and grip to them. Also, the handles are slightly longer than my Wusthof handles on the same size knives which I REALLY like. AT this point, I was REALLY excited about my new knives....

The Bad:
After being so excited, I did have a few issues arise. The biggest issue is that one of the steak knives is very noticeably shorter than the others (see my pictures posted on the product page at the top). It is not a huge issue because it still works, but when you pay almost a hundred dollars for cutlery, you expect a little more quality control than when you pay twenty five for a set. The second issue is with the "bamboo" block. I thought I was buying a bamboo block, but it turns out that only the outside it bamboo. The inside is a cheap white wood of some sort (see pictures poste). Again this does not affect the usage, but my expectation were set higher and I feel deceived.

If I had to buy them again....yes. A little hesitation, but in the end they are great knives for the money.

UPDATE: Customer Service was great! Didn't expect it to be an American company. They are sending me a replacement steak knife at no cost and I don't have to send them the short one.

This is the first review I have ever written on Amazon; being asked to give a review by every vendor for every purchase everyday is a bit annoying. That being said, I finally had to write this. This is the worst set of knives I have ever seen. I purchased these nearly two years ago based on the recommendation from Consumer Reports. At first, I was excited by both the price and effectiveness. These knives were seriously sharp and well balanced.

I first noticed the problem with the paring knife within the first 4 months. When looking at the blade, I could see an actual indentation in the knife edge, as if I had hit it as hard as I could on something harder. Soon the knife started developing rust spots, and additional "chips" out of the beveled edge. I hand-wash all of my knives, dry them, store them, and use them properly. This was not an issue of misuse.

I contacted Amazon a few months later, and since it was beyond 90 days (maybe 180, can't recall for sure), they said they could not do anything and referred me to Ginsu (in Arkansas). Someone from there contacted me, and we had a phone conversation regarding the product. They asked about use (or misuse of the knife (i.e., did I put them in the dishwasher, cut open cans, etc...)), and then the rep actually asked if I stored them in the kitchen near the sink where they would be susceptible to rust. Seriously? Knives in the kitchen? Isn't that where they are generally stored?

They agreed to send me a replacement at no cost, which I appreciate. In the past year, that knife, the Chef's knife, and the utility knife have all had multiple chips/divots in the blade, as well as rust spots.
