This is a great set for the average chef. I am not a professional but do like to cook using fresh foods and so use this on a daily basis. It came exactly as described. The set included a sharpener and each piece did need to be sharpened prior to use. The set also looks very nice with my black and stainless steel kitchen appliances. I have already thrown away all my other mis-matched knives.

We've had this knife set for about a month now. Before making the purchase, we checked out a lot of different sets. My husband is a sous chef and I love to cook, so it was time for an upgrade. We were using a Food Network knife block set that I had for several years. We checked out some block sets in the store and then narrowed it down to Wusthof and Henckles, and decided on this Henckle set because he thought it was the best value for the price. It's a definite upgrade from what we were using. I love that I can now easily slice through a tomato or a green pepper without having to saw at it! Another positive, for him, is the sharpening steel. The only thing that I am concerned with is how these knives will hold up. We do not put them in the dishwasher and he has noticed a small nick in one of them already. You also need to be sure to wash and dry them thouroughly right away because they will easily get rust spots.

GREAT KNIVES, BEEN ENJOYING THEM SINCE I GOT THEM. VERY SHARP AND EASY TO USE. I HAVEN'T HAD TO USE A SHARPENER YET. I HAD TO COOK FOR A BRIDAL SHOWER AND MY FRIENDS ENJOYED USING THESE KNIVES TO HELP ME PREP THE FOOD. THEY THOUGHT THE KNIVES ARE OF GREAT QUALITY AND THEY THOUGHT I SPENT A FORTUNE ON THEM.

This set is a welcome addition to our kitchen, compared to the toxic nonstick coated pans we had previously. This is a beautiful set, with mirror polished exteriors and brushed satin interiors. Very nice heavy weight construction, with riveted handles, no more tightening screws on loose handles, and the handles stay cool. The included stainless steel lids fit nice. The pans heat up quickly, cook nicely, and food sticking doesn't seem to be a problem as long as the pan is preheated with oil first. Overall very happy with the set, still can't believe the exterior polished finish, it looks as nice if not better than the most expensive competitors sets out there. Would definitely buy again!
