The only suggestion I can make to would-be buyers is that they may wish to get a rigid boning knife to go with the rest. All in all, a good set for the money.
Cimeter (Top knife pictured): This knife is useful only for large subprimals because of it's bulk. I have used it on top rounds, bottom rounds and top butts with absolutely no problem. Feels solid in the hand and the handle has a great grip.
Breaking Knife, 8" Steak Knife (Second Knife pictured): This is the knife I have always favored, it's size is good all around for handling large subprimals and for cleaning up your smaller pieces. Feels like an easier-to-control cimeter.
Boning Knife (Third knife pictured): This one is great, very useful for taking silver skin off smaller roasts and primals, and would probably be great for filleting smaller fish. This knife is semi-flexible though, so it's not something I prefer to use when cleaning up my mess into stew chunks or stir fry because the tip is constantly bending all over the place. I have not used this knife much at all, other than for removing the skin off some fish. I keep a second stiff boning knife that serves every other purpose, though.
Paring Knife (Fourth knife pictured): This 3 inch blade is awesome, but it serves no purpose in my set. I keep it around the kitchen because it's much better for peeling fruit or opening tough packages than for use in a meat processing environment. A nice bonus that Victorinox probably threw in just so they could say that they're giving you five knives.
Fillet Knife (Fifth knife pictured): Excellent for filleting salmon, which is the only use it has seen. It's a semi flex knife as well, so again I do not use it on the meat block. It's good to keep around just in case, but considering that this set is supposed to be a field dressing kit, it's good that it's included.
Steel (Second to last item pictured): I will say that prior to purchasing this set that I figured that the included steel would probably be mediocre, so I purchased a separate ceramic steel at the same time that I bought this bundle. This steel is a medium grit, has a bit of heft to it, and nothing to call home about, but it does align your blade. It will do it's job but I suggest buying a better steel if you're going to be using this set for production.
Bag (Last item pictured): I love the bag! The bag is basically one large knife holder that zips up once, and as you roll it up into a bundle you have one large and one small pocket, room enough for some small accessories like a steel, box opener, etc. I am able to fit my standard knife scabbard, the cimeter, breaking knife, boning knife, my other boning knife, ceramic steel, and box cutter snuggly into the bag. It also has a shoulder strap if you want to use it.
Overall I am happy with this set. I have used Victorinox knives in the past though, and they are excellent production knives for the cost. Especially for the cost of this entire set, I feel that $100 and prime shipping makes this a no-brainer if you are looking for a starter set. If there was one thing I could change about this set, it would be to get rid of the steel, paring and fillet knives and give the remaining knives a granton edge. But then this set would no longer be a complete field dressing kit, and likely not cost $100. :) I have only owned this set for a week, but I will update this review in six months or so and give any additional details.
If you're reading this Victorinox, release a specialty meat cutter's set, with granton edge knives, a scabbard and the bag, and you will make some money!
