What's in the Box

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.
NSF certified knives.

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.
Now that I have been using these knives quiet a bit over the past week, it was definitely worth the purchase. I don't even notice the bulkier hand grip now (and it is only bulky by comparison to Wüstof and Henckels). It is my understanding that these knives are commonly used by culinary students and I can understand why. This is a professional product for nearly half the price of other knives in this competition range. In order to keep the blades sharp, I also purchased the Mercer Genesis Collection 10-Inch Honing Steel.
One thing to be aware of with the glass knife block is that the knives are removed by pulling straight up. Of course this is obvious, but unlike other angled knife block sets, cabinet clearance may be an issue for some kitchens. I had not thought of this when originally ordering and at first was disappointed when I thought it would not be possible to store these knives on the counter under cabinetry. However, this is a very sturdy steel and glass knife block. I soon realized the block does not slide when tipped. So whenever I need to remove or return a knife to the block I simply lean it forward without trouble.Read more ›
I took a chance and he called after it arrived to thank me and told me they were excellent quality, that he loved the space saving storage vessel. He also liked the fact he could easily see which knife he was needing to pull to use thanks to the translucent glass.
I was relieved he was very happy with his gift. It wasn't until I came to visit him this week that I remembered I gifted them. I went to make dinner and used the knifes. I absolutely love these knifes. I am so impressed I am picking a set up for myself. I paid around $150 for them for my Dad, and they are at $129 right now- and with Prime that is a steal. I am not a chef, but do enjoy my time in the kitchen. I have a couple of really nice preparation knifes but these will round out my set.
On a side note while here I was able to easily unscrew the vessel using my fingers to slide the glass out and clean it. It slides right back in and you just screw it back tight with the flat topped stainless screws atop each column. They are large enough for anyone with hand dexterity issues to grab hold of and unscrew.
The set includes 5 knives: a general utility knife, a paring knife, a boning knife, a bread knife, and a classic chef's knife. they're all very sturdy and well balanced. The handle is a very comfortable rubberized material that wraps around the entire handle. I usually prefer a classic handle on my knives: wood, triple-riveted, full-tang. These handles are rubber, with no rivets (though a nice little emblem on one side of the handle towards the back), and no real way to tell if they're full tang or not since you can't see how far back the metal goes.
However, they most definitely do feel sturdy and balanced, which is what really matters in the end. All of the knives have a very nice weight to them, and the glass 'block' is gorgeous to look at.
As other reviewers have mentioned, you do have to take into consideration that the knives come out straight up, so putting this under a cabinet will not work. You'll either need plenty of room above it to pull out the blades, or just not use the display stand and opt for either a classic wooden block, or a magnetic strip to hold the blades.
