The blades are great, sharp and light. The plastic handles feel a bit cheap to me, but they also balance the light blades well so its probably appropriate. The tips are rounded so you can't stab with these, which is a bit frustrating however I understand that it so you don't snap off the tip since ceramic is more brittle.

The knives are very beautiful and well made. However, the block seems to be made out of cheap plastic.

I gave this as a gift to my brother for the Holidays and had it shipped to me first, so I could wrap it, thank goodness. It showed up in a box that was way too small and the original packaging the knife rack came in was damaged and nearly illegible because it had been bent so badly from the outer shipment packaging. The plastic around the knife holder was ripped, and I had to fully open the package to make sure all the contents were there. It was embarassing to explain all of this to my brother. I ended up throwing away the original container because it looked like I got it from a dumpster.

This knife block was great for a couple of months, then it started scratching up all my knives. The black plastic sticks inside the stainless exterior get all bent up over time, then the knives don't even fit into the unit anymore. Now I have to replace this with a wood block.

I wanted pink knives for my cottage style kitchen and it looks like they'll do fine. Honestly, I use my paring knives more than the others but it will be nice to have a long serrated bread knife if I need it. I do NOT like the shiny, tacky clear and black plastic holder, so I purchased a wooden block from Overstock as well. As usual, Overstock shipped very quickly and the price was great because I used 15% off coupon they sent me.

Ok, it's a magnet ... not much to it right? Well the plastic housing is so brittle that the screw tabs break off before the screw even engaged into the drywall. The plastic is so brittle that it will break in your hand (and did with mine). I wouldn't never recommend this product to anyone.

Opening the brand new box, I could already tell the knives have poor quality. The handles are very wobbly and were the handles are low grade plastic. The "cutting board" they send in the box is a joke. It's practically thin as paper. The utensils don't seem too bad just looking at them. I never actually used any of the stuff in the box though. Sent it all back. Unfortunately, I had to send it back for store credit, they charge you *** if you choose to have the refund sent back to your debit/credit you originally purchased the item with. By choosing the store credit option, you get the full refund back. So I recommend to NOT buy this product.

I love these ceramic knives. Though they are only as good as the handles holding them. In this case- cheap light plastic is not going to do the trick in the long run. I wish they would make these out of quality materials- especially since ceramic blades are just so cool! they cut great but I must say this cheapo plastic handle is not nice. The knife covers are well made. And the knife set comes in a dandy carry case. I do think it is still a good value for the price which is why i gave it 4 stars. Made in china with funny directions.

This is a great cutting board. Love that each of the colored plastic sleeves has an icon indicating what it is to be used for. No memory recall needed! Also love that this is a slot to store the plastic sleeves in. Can't beat the price.

This is the second Knife Man I've purchased. Love it BUT am still disappointed that he is plastic and not metal. The knives are great. The man Is quite the conversation piece and looks fabulous on the kitchen counter.

I'm very pleased with the quality of this knife, especially for the price. Not being a chef, I'm not sure of the appropriate and intended use for a "Santoku" knife, but I consider it all purpose and use it for everything except bread/bagels. Drawer space is tight, so I especially appreciated the plastic cover, until I switched to using the Ikea magnetic strip on the wall to hold my knives.

pretty straight forward, magnetic knife rack, it works. We like it. The only thing is that the outside part of it (where the magnetic strips are mounted) is plastic - so if you're looking for a high-end, all metal magnetic knife rack, this one is not for you.

The product does a great job sharpening soft steel knives such as those below the 440 grade. Very easy to use but that does come at a price. Although the carbide head does a good job of abrading the crude edge ,while the ceramic edge does give it an .. ok finish. Ultimately it will be sharp but it won't give you that polished and fine finish a freehand workman can with a waterstone. Also ,metal filings does have a tendency to get stuck to the stones . Furthermore if you have really tough steel knives such as those in the 1095 range. It's going to have a hard time sharpening those blades ,especially if they are damaged. I have a** with a dented edge, spent almost an hour trying to level the edge , still miles from reaching the base of the dent , but then that is to be expected. As for the aesthetics.... well its a simple home tool , nothing fancy. The plastic does feel cheap sometimes but the base is grippy and it gets the job done. All in all , an alright tool for people who don't want to spend too much time on learning the skill required ,but only want an operational blade.

I bought these knives after seeing them on TV. I didn't really expect them to be much better than a standard steel blade knife, but these ceramic knives are far better. They are so light compared to a steel knife. The blades are razor sharp and barely need any effort to cut a parsnip which normally had my old knives needing a good deal of pushing. Cleaning them has them come up sparkling and looking like new. The plastic sheathes covering the blades is a good idea as if you're not careful I could see you cutting yourself quite badly. The box is a good quality card one, but looks good and has nice padding with holes cut into it so the knives sit in place very nicely so you can store it on its side without the knives slipping. I couldn't recommend these knives any more if you're into cooking. Excellent quality and value for money.

I got this knife set as a Christmas gift for my husband. He loved the design, & felt that the knives are great quality. The handle is not separate/fused on, so they are a solid, sturdy design. My only complaint is that I wish the holder was metal. You can't tell that it's plastic without touching it, & we haven't scratched it while putting the knives away, but just FYI because I didn't know when I bought it that the whole product was not stainless steel.

Decent quality, attractive product for the price. Goes well with black granite countertops. Very strong magnets to hold your cutlery. BUT, be aware that the back of the rack is hollow plastic. So if you want to mount it on a tile backsplash or some such, you will be drilling through tiles to screw mount it (good luck with that one), or building up something (I myself used wood strips and four slightly longer screws that now secure the magnets) into the back of it so it can be flat mounted to the tile with some double-sided, sticky foam tape.

I found this product to be exactly what I needed. It isn't very fancy and being made of plastic looks a bit cheap up close, but once its on the wall it looks very nice and functions well. Overall a good purchase unless you want something more fancy then functional.

This is a great little knife magnet! It is quality for the price. Made out of plastic but not too chinsy to have to worry about. I have been using mine for months now and it is so convenient to have over my stove when I cook, to hold tongs, spoons or whatever. It comes with wall anchors so you dont have to buy any hardware and they hold firmly. Nothing bad to say about this product! Exactly what I ordered.

I expected more from this product for the price. First, it is made completely of plastic, and not well done - you can see the seams and plastic mold marks and the gaps where the plastic was snapped together. They also need to give a more accurate picture showing this on a kitchen counter near other items so you can see how huge it is. The holder & base take up more space than other normal knife wood blocks.
