The only peices of this set better than a $50 walmart set were the Chefs knife
on February 16, 2016
I ordered this set because of the price, and the fact that my family has always used Henckels. My parents old classic set is heirloom quality, and I hope to pass it on some day, despite all the punishment it has been through. However, THIS set is not what I was expecting when I ordered something with the Henckels name. The only peices of this set better than a $50 walmart set were the Chefs knife, the Carving knife, and the pairing knife. However even those knives weren't "finished." The edges were not very sharp, and looked like they had just been gone over by my bench grinder. The steak knives were dripping cutting oil when I opened them, and were simply the cheapest pieces of crap I've ever seen.
I will not be buying Henkels' products ever again. There are quite a few German knife makers who still make their own knives in Germany, but Henckels is no longer on that list, and it very much shows.
