Victorinox Cutlery is the knife of choice for professionals and consistently receives high accolades in product testing. This "best-in-class" commercial grade cutlery is now available for home use. Victorinox knives feature high carbon, stainless steel blades, hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again, so the knife can keep its original sharpness throughout the entire life of the blade. Victorinox handles are ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension. They provide a natural fit. A good heft and comfortable, positive grip are indications of a well-made knife. A sure-grip handle with a finger guard is valuable feature since the handle inevitably gets greasy, wet, or both. Although cutlery steel is naturally sanitary, materials and construction details of the handle minimize crevices what would offer hospitality to bacteria. Patented, NSF approved Fibrox handles.

If you use them as I do, you will want to get a good sharpener. Be aware that they have the 15 degree Asian edge (my German steel knives tend to have the 20 degree blades) so I got the Chefs Choice Diamond Hone 463 Asian sharpener that will quickly restore the razor sharpness.
I must also say that their price when compared to the German knives is amazing. This set's price is about what I spent for one of the German 10 inch chefs knife.
I did a bit of research in reddit's "AskCulinary" sub-reddit and Victorinox knives were highly recommended to beginner cooks as reliable "workhorse" knives. I have had my set for over a year and all of them are still in great shape. My 8-inch chef's knife could probably stand to be sharpened at this point. I haven't had any of them sharpened but I do have a honing steel and my knives cut remarkably well after a few passes on the honing steel.
The knives are lightweight, but don't feel chintzy. The handles are comfortable and textured so they aren't too slippery when they are wet. I have fairly large hands and the handles feel comfortable and don't feel too small.
I highly recommend this set to anyone looking for solid, dependable, general-purpose kitchen knives.
The set is missing a couple things in general. You really need a thiner/finer chef's knife for things like onions, and something a bit heavier for slicing into stuff like winter squash. I actually got the Swiss Army 7" Granton Edge from Victorinox as well, and it's my favorite knife, so I recommend picking it up with this set. Oh, and pick up a heavy duty cleaver to handle squash :)
Only complaint is the weight/balance. They feel goofy because the handle is light compared to the blade; but I got used to it, and have zero regrets. Would recommend. Some tips, don't put in the dishwasher and don't store wet. I use a magnetic wall-mounted knife rack. Great way to display the set (plus the cleaver, you know, to frighten intruders)
I can’t really report on how they keep an edge, I haven’t had them that long, but I do wash and dry my knives immediately and keep them in a wooden block... So, hopefully, that will help. I am completely happy with these and the price is right. If people don’t like these and criticize them because they aren’t as good as a $100 knife, then go buy a more expensive knife or a set for hundreds of dollars. They are what they are, and they are excellent for what they are.
