I had Cuisinart set like this a few years ago. But this new set the knives are more sleek even though there a less knifes I have EXACTLY what I need. I like that the block is streamlined and looks much neater on my counter top. And boy are these knives sharp. A word of advice is to wash and dry these immediately after use so as to prevent any rusting...
for the price this seems to be a nice set of knives. Note that there are 2 extra slots in the block that will not be filled - i thought i was missing 2 pieces until i double checked the description.
These knives are very sharp and get an A+ for functionality. Keep in mind though that in person, the knifes are actually lighter and the wood block is actually darker. This shouldn't matter too much unless you're more concerned about the color of your set. Also it does not come with a honing tool or scissors like most knife blocks. Overall, I'm pleased with way the knives perform.
