I love these knives. I had a set but I lost a few pieces, so I had to buy another. I also bought a set for my mother. The only thing you must watch out for is "DO NOT WASH IT IN YOUR DISH WASHER". My kids did that with a couple of my knives and they lost their sharpness. The rest of them are as sharp as new and I've had mines for at least 2 years. It cuts through frozen food and still stays sharp.
