Sabre Knives are GREAT knives!!!
on September 21, 2011
I purchased this Sabre 13 piece professional knife set from another place and have simply fallen in love with them from the minute I took them out of the box. Granted time will tell if they hold up, but they are simply beautiful and the reviews give me belief that I will not be disappointed over time.
They handle like a dream, balance wonderfully in the hand, and are wickedly sharp from the box. I can cut with ease even with my small hands and a recent case of hand and shoulder tendonitis.
I owned a classic Henckle starter set for 20 years that with time and wear finally fell apart. I didn't want to spend the mucho bucks it would take now for what is now called "Classic Henckles" to replace the quality I purchased years ago with the variety I have come to desire, so after looking around for a good deal in these down economic times, I bought a set of Martha Stewart knives. The Martha Stewart knives felt and looked great, but after 4 months of use I am returning them to the store as they simply won't hold a nice edge.
I purchased this set of Sabre knives in a last ditch hope that I could get a large set of really quality knives for a reasonable price before saving up a lot more to pay the big bucks for a large enough Henckle Classic set to get all the knives I wanted.
I couldn't be happier with the Sabres. These Sabre knives "rock." I now have a great selection of great knives at a good price value.
UPDATE January 2012.
After my purchase, I discovered a couple of the knives were chipping when honing them with the honer that comes in the set. I contacted Saber by leaving a phone message and got a reply within the hour...from the CEO. They shipped a COMPLETE new set (with complimentary additional ham carver) immediately without requiring any kind of validation. They apologized profusely and asked me to keep the good knives of the old set too after I sent them a photo so their engineers could track down what went wrong as they said this had never happened before...the metal was too brittle in the 3 knives that chipped. The new set is rock solid and has been keeping an edge and honing beautifully. I gave my partial set (of the knives that were still good) to my daughter who is thrilled as well. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! These people REALLY stand behind their wonderful product.
