I've spent a good 10 years without having a real knife set and finally I have one now. I cut tomatoes with no problem. Out of the box they are pretty sharp and if one wanted to, you could make the sharper. But as they are, they cut things just fine.
I ordered this for my mother who has been insisting on this type of knife ensemble for some time. The order was on time and it was a real pleaser for a woman who is not easy to be pleased. The product is extremely sharp and is quite nice. Great choice.
This set of knives is exactly what I was looking for. I was a bit hesitant about ordering these online because I had never owned Chicago Cutlery before. I took a chance and am happy that I did, this set is just what I needed. They look nice and get the job done.
This product was just perfect for my two sons both moving into apartments and needing virtually everything. Not only did it provide a great variety of knives, the kitchen shears were a great addition and the storage block so convenient. Really can't beat the value! They are both thrilled with this product.
I am so glad to get these. They are very sharp and all the right size for everything I want to cut. The weight of each is a very comfortable weight and they handle very good. Just the right size of block too for the space I have for them. I always clean my knives by hand with warm soap water, I never put them in the dishwasher. I think they last longer that way. I might get my son a set of these too.
