From the Manufacturer
These precision balanced, weighted knife sets will not slide or move if bumped or tipped.
Precision forged German steel knives.
High carbon, non-staining German steel resists rust, corrosion, and discoloration. Forged knives are made from a single piece of steel that is strengthened by rearranging its molecular structure through heat. The result is a cutting edge that stays sharp longer and is easier to maintain.
Find the right knife quickly and easily.
Glass see-through windows makes it easy to find the right knife. Santoprene non-slip knife handles offer superior grip whether hands are wet or dry. Santoprene won't break down when exposed to oil and withstands all temperatures. Each knife has a bolster for more strength and balance, resulting in better handling, and protection for fingers. Remove knives by pulling straight up.

Top Customer Reviews
This is what you have to be careful of, however:
1. They measure MORE than 14" in height, when measuring the set from bottom of stand to top of knife handle (see pics 1-2)
2. If you have low cupboards like me, you cannot remove the knives with one hand, you'll have to tilt the stand with one hand while grabbing the knife with the other
3. Same as above to put knife back in
Take a look at the knives with the comparison against the height of a roll of paper towels and my Wusthof set, the standard wooden block that allows you to pull the knives out at an angle, thus requiring only one hand.
1. The handles are very grippy, just awesome
2. The set looks fantastic and draws a lot of attention
3. No rust on the metal yet
4. Stand is easy to clean, as long as you don't put wet knives in, which will cloud the inside of the glass
Thanks for reading my review.
The other day I went to a cooking class with my daughter in the city and had the pleasure of using the Mercer genisis knife ..-
Well balanced, incredibly sharp and an absolute work horse. On the way home I went to Amazon and looked them up. To my surprise I was able to get a great 5 piece set for only 135 dollars. They arrived today and they are amazing I bought a set for my daughter as well
GREAT KNIFES YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED
The rubber on the handle is really good and provide amazing grip. I think it is also the perfect size for a handle. Overall, the weight, balance and handle is almost perfect. That is just my humble opinion and I am not a professional chef.
I have not noticed the wear on sharpness yet. It is still as sharp as the day I received it. I will update when I need to sharpen it. I just use these for cooking daily. I only cook dinner on weekdays and breakfast/lunch on weekends. According to many other reviews, regular usage should make the blade dull after 2-3 months. I am prepared and bought an electronic sharpener. I told my girlfriend "I bought these knives this electronic sharpener to help you stay in the kitchen and keep cooking".....and now I'm the one cooking all the time while she watches TV :(
After over a year of use, the knives are finally starting to get dull. It's not terribly dull and works for everything we use daily. I'll be looking into an electric sharpener soon.
The knives' construction are solid. There is very little wear and tear on the handle and the blade(besides the edge getting dull). It didn't bend or twist like other knives I used to own. I do not follow any recommended methods for washing. Sometimes I washed it in the sink and sometimes in the dishwasher. It held up and looks like it will have many more years.
The glass stand looked good at first but now it's a pain to clean.
