Steak knives are a little less impressive than the rest of the set. Lightweight but good blades for cutting. Good for the price.

Great set. Sharp, looks good and does not take up much counter space.

This is an excellent knife set, and so sharp!! The blades are sharp and straight, except for the bread knife and one eight inch knife, which are serrated.

These knives are not good really good quality - they are just OK. The block looks sort of like gray plastic (painted with speckles like a garage floor) and the knives don't feel expensive in the hand (but they don't feel super cheap either). The steak knives, on the other hand, do feel cheap and there is no way I would put them out on the table for company. The handle is a foam-plastic type and the blade is not exactly flimsy, but sort of. The scissor is definitely cheap looking and feeling, but who buys these things for the scissors anyway... I bought these to replace a 7 year old Cuisinart set (also bought on Overstock!) and my old set feels and looks a lot better. I believe that Henckles has several product lines and my guess is that this is the cheap line. I tried using them, so I can't return them but I kick myself for buying these - I wish I had bought a nicer set. My advice is to not be swayed by the product brand and pass on this set.

Very nice set. Well balanced forged high carbon steel, not a stamped steel set. They have held an edge very well and and stay razor sharp with light honing. I use the bottom of a ceramic coffee cup method between uses. I mostly use the chef knife but I have no complaints when grabbing a random knife from the block on occasion. All have been of same quality and sharpness. The steak knives have actually remained sharp over the months with daily usage. You will quickly notice the weight difference if you have only used stamped steel knives in the past, but like I said they are well balanced. Stamped steel can be just as sharp in the beginning, but they don't stay sharp long. These knives are a great deal even at normal pricing.
A quality knife will hold its edge without excessive sharpening and be durable enough to handle the everyday work that takes place in your kitchen. With so many varieties and brands of cutlery to choose from, finding kitchen knives that will fit your style requires a few considerations. When you're shopping for knives , look carefully at each type that interests you, whether you're considering individual knives or block sets . Once you've chosen your perfect knife , keeping it clean and sharp will extend its life. Comparing Kitchen Knives: Note the length of the blade. Read More
