I researched these online to get an idea about the quality. Norpro seems to manufacture a lot of commercial kitchen items of stainless steel, and a few cutlery pieces. These have a good weight, and they fit well in my hand (I don't have very big hands though). The blades are stamped X50CrMoV 15, which is a molybdenum-chromium vanadium steel, also called German steel, which is apparently the same steel used by the famous German knives we all have heard of. I understand there is an even better grade of steel out there, but for my purposes these surpass what I was looking for--a decent set with good quality that I could grab for quick prep when I didn't want to get into the good knives we have. I have yet to use the special peeling knife with the concave blade, but it should be useful for paring and peeling veggies. I am pleased they were such a good buy.
