I wouldn't say that this is the best quality product you will get--the wooden block is crude, and the blades bend easily. BUT this is definitely worth the price. I do see the knives lasting a while, even if this isn't top of the line quality (and really--I didn't expect it to be). The chopping board is laughable at best, but again serves its purpose. I'm actually surprised most by the spoons--I found the same quality products at a high end competing department store, and the price was much much higher than this. I'm pleased overall.
