They are most definately sharp. Very light weight. Thinner blade compared to some German knives. I also got the feeling they would last forever due to the handle being metal too. Other knives you may have to worry about the rivets or deteriorating wood handles.
Handles: I bought these online based on reviews and the pictures here on Amazon. In the pictures I thought the black dots may have been some kind of rubber for grip. I wasn't too keen of the thought of potentially having little pieces of rubber glued to the knife. I ordered this set anyway and was pleasantly surprised that the dots are just colored dimples like a golf ball.
Utility knife grip: Looking at the picture of the utility knife I was worried about the grip because the handle looks a little different. I immediately washed this knife upon receiving it and used it to chop up some veggies. I found it very comfortable to use. No concerns with the grip at all.
My set was out of the box sharp and I was chopping things up effortlessly. There really is a "wow" factor if you've only experienced cheap knives from your local *mart stores.
The quality problem: After a few weeks I noticed the paring knife showed black spots on the blade surface (corrosion of the stainless steel). I was taking good care of the knives (not putting them through the dishwasher etc.) but still this knife corroded faster than any stainless steel I had ever seen, and none of the other knives had this problem so I concluded this was a quality issue on the paring knife. I contacted Chefs Resource (the vendor) and they just pointed me to the US distributor's website (to be honest I was very disappointed with their response - so I wouldn't recommend Chef's Resources over any other vendor). I then returned the knife to the US distributor with a warrantee claim form ([...]). I am please to say that within a few weeks a replacement knife was mailed back to me. I believe this was a rare quality problem that I have not seen in any of the other knives and I was pleased the US distributor stood behind the product and did the right thing. I was happy that after investing so much in a high quality knife that when a problem did occur the US distributor honored their commitment to the customer - Great job by Sointu USA.
We were also impressed with the quality of the factory edge. Even without a serrated edge, they all slid through a tomato like a hot knife through butter. It's been a joy to work with these knives. I haven't decided if I'm going to invest in a ceramic sharpener (as recommended by our instructor) or just take them to the local knife shop and have them sharpened as needed. But I will be taking great care of these babies as I love to cook and have suffered with mediocre and bad knives for far too long!
These knives are sharp and light and are all shaped in the stereotypical style that lets you rock back and forth to slice meat and veggies. If you are someone that likes to chop (aka bang down from the top to the bottom rather than slide through what you're cutting) you do NOT want to get these as you'll damage the edge of the blade. You'd be better off with a Santoku knife which is designed for the chopping motion.
