After reading a lot of good reviews about these knives, I must say I am pretty disappointed. I don't know if I got a bad set or what, but the fit and finish of these knives is pretty poor. All four of them has one issue or another. I'll list them:
Knife #1: Split in wooden scales that will certainly flake a larger piece off with normal use.
Knife #2: The spine potrudes out from the wood enough to form a very sharp metal edge. The spine is also jagged as shown in photos. I would imagine it wouldn't be hard to accidentally cut yourself from the this edge
Knife #3: Two small pits in blade close to the bolster. While they are tiny, and probably won't effect overall performance, it just speaks to the quality control (or lack thereof) of the company.
All knives in varying degrees: rivets are raised, some more than others, causing sharp edges around handles. Spines are not flush in all except for one of the knives.
These problems aside the steel seems good, and they are sharp. Unfortunately, due to how many small problems these knives possess I will have to return them. I really wanted to like these especially with all the great reviews, so I am bummed they did not meet expectations.
