These knives were a GREAT price..so I couldn't pass it up. I wanted them ever since I saw the infomercial for these years ago. The knives are average size and sharp. Only time will tell if they continue to cut well. They didn't cut through a pineapple or mango easily at all. I assumed it would be easy as Chef Tony cut through lots of tougher stuff in the infomerical. The directions do say that the knives are dishwasher safe, but I don't recommend it because the metal blades will get tiny little rust spots- which leads me to believe they are not a great stainless steel...and they are made in China of course. You'll need to get a wooden block to put these in too...unless you just keep sharp knives lying around in your kitchen drawers. BUT these knives were worth the price I paid.
