Picked up this set while it was on sale, my old set was getting pretty cruddy. First impression consisted of wide eyes and mumbling of the words, "Ooooooh, shiny!" The knife is a particularly useful implement, I've seared enough hairs off the back of my hands trying to cut into a steak to check its doneness, so having a long-handled knife is brilliant. Really sharp, too, hopefully it'll be easy to keep that way. All the tools seem decently crafted, nothing fancy but well-made. My only complaint is they're a bit light-weight, I'd prefer if they had a bit more mass to them. They almost feel kind of like toys in my hands, but at least they're balanced. It's also nice having the knife edge on the spatula and the additional teeth on the tongs. All in all, a nice little set in a nice little case.
