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.

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!

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.

I bought this knife sharpener for myself because I wanted to start cooking and eating healthy food. Since this requires a lot of chopping and slicing of fresh veggies and meats, I bought the sharpener and a very nice set of knives. The knives actually came with a "diamond surface" sharpener but it was round and I did not like it compared to this sharpener. The surface of this sharpener is flattened so you get perfect contact between the blade of your knife and the sharpener. It's also not such a rough surface and does not 'grate' the blades of my knives.The handle is perfectly shaped to hold with a good grip. I am female and my hands are not large so this is important to me. Although there is a ring on the end of the handle for hanging from a hook if you want, the surface of the sharpener is metal and sits perfectly on my magnetic strip that holds all of my frequently-used knives. I am very satisfied with this sharpener and I highly recommend it.

I bought this knife after Christina Perrilla recommended using a ceramic knife for food preparation. I saw her at a live cooking demonstartion where she used her own ceramice knife, which she has owned for 20 years. This is a different brand than hers, but I am so very excited about it. Excellent quality, sharpness superior to all other knives I owe, I have about 8 other knives. Ii knew it would be sharp, but I cut on of my fingers while washing it. So be very careful. It cuts everything, meats, fruits vegtables. It worked so good I bought another one two days later in a smaler size. Price was excellent - if you cook even just a little bit, you must have this knife
