I bought these to put in my vacation home that will be rented out, so I wanted to make sure I have durable items at a good price. Well, these fit the bill. They're just the right weight to feel substantial in your hand, they clean easily, and store quickly and easily in the block.
I had a similar knife set for the past 12 years. I had a coupon on O and decided to look at life sets. I saw this one and it looked nice so I bought it. It was delivered quickly and easy to set up. I started by using the steak knives and thought they were much sharper than the ones I had. Finally this weekend I tried some of the other knives. They were great. Very sharp and I now wonder why I waited so long. These are worth the price!!
I needed a full nice set for our condo. I've used them for several months and they are still quite sharp. After using them and asking how much I paid for them my sister became angry with her husband. He bought her a set for double the price and they aren't as sharp!
