Knives are heavy and a very good quality. The block arrived broken. There is a metal plate with slots that the knives sit in. That plate is glued to the top of the block. It arrived with the plate detached from the block and the block chipped where the plate should be. But I am happy about the knives.

I purchased these after reading reviews as I had not purchased knives in 30 years! After a few weeks of using them, they are duller than a butter knife! I use the sharpener frequently, even bought another sharpener thinking that was the problem but basically have to put all my strength into the knives in order for them to cut. Not worth the money
What a great set for the money. I needed a great set on a budget. This one is perfect. The knives have a great feel and are well weighted. The blades are sharp and hold that sharpness well. I love the attached sharpener since I'm one of those people who can never get the correct angle with a steel. This set looks nice and is extremely functional.

I just stepped up to real knifes so these are really good as of right now. Im no proff cook so these do more than expected when I use them. There all one piece rather than like a wooden handle but overall there surpassing my expectations.
I really like how sleek this item looks in my kitchen. The knives work wonderfully....and they were a great price! If your not looking to spend hundreds on a knife set then these would be a great purchase! I am very happy with my decision in buying this item. Not to mention they were at my house three days later!!! :)
I purchased this as a gift. The finale test of their function and quality will have to be seen in the next month.

I bought these knives for my daughter who has a very modern kitchen with a black granite counter top and did not want a traditional "wooden" butcher block knife set. These are perfect!!! Not only does she like that they are black and well balanced, my son in law loves the detatchable sharpener. Glad I found these on Overstock at such a good price.
