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.
First to address the customer service at Mercer. I initially had a small problem with my order
and after not receiving a response going through Amazon, I contacted the company directly.
When emailing the company I received immediate, helpful, 5 star customer service.
They went above and beyond to make sure that I was a happy customer.
A trait that is difficult to find these days. I learned that many companies do not see
the reviews posted here, and sometimes communication through Amazon to them,
(regarding a problem for example) may not even make it to the company.
That is what happened in my case. Once Mercer was aware of my issue they immediately
jumped through hoops to fix it. I admit to not being the nicest person when making
contact with Mercer as I believed they were ignoring me by not answering communication sent through Amazon, yet, they were nice to me. Proffesional.
considering my "tone".
The knives are a solid, heavy, (compared to cheap run of the mill sets), extremely sharp quality product. The handles are made of some type of rubber(?) material which assures a solid
easy to handle grip. This matters, a lot. I am not a chef by any means, not even close, but from my experience wood handled knives when wet are not only difficult to grip, but dangerous because they become slippery.
When the knives first arrive they are unbelievably sharp. After a few months they do begin to
dull a bit but I now have a knife sharpener that quickly brings them back. I'm a total novice in the kitchen so this was a learning experience. All knives get
less sharp and should be sharpened appropriately. Mercer was kind enough to educate me.
Now I see why in Game of Thrones every one is constantly sitting around
sharpening their Valaryan Steel swords. Sorry, couldn't resist :)
Others have posted questions about the glass block itself and how to clean it. One word. Easy. See attached picture. Extremely easy.
The other "issue" I have noticed posted about a lot is the height of the knives in relation to the bottom of your kitchen cabinets. Again, refer to my attached pictures for the overall "look".
When I each for a knife I do slightly pull the block forward (towards me) to remove it.
This has proved to be a non issue for a couple of reasons. One, you just get used to
doing that motion. If you place the block under a cabinet you obviously cannot lift the
knife straight up and out. However, it is not a problem at all.
Two, the glass block is surprisingly sturdy so it does not fall over as you tilt it forward a bit
to remove the knife. I'm so used to the motion now I don't even notice, it's just second nature.
I love this set. Apparently my undercabinet lighting has effected my pictures as they actually look
more "shiny" from a distance in person. A clean, updated modern design as opposed to the big old wood block ones.
And the quality is top knot here. Well worth the price! Would make a great gift too.
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
