I ordered this set of knives for my son and daughter in law for Christmas and I was so delighted to see the quality and craftmanship of this beautiful Cutlery set. And it came in a very attractive block which looked very nice on their kitchen counter. I've since been able to use the set in while visiting and it's been almost a year since I first gave it to them and the set looks as nice as the very first day. Beautiful quality and no discoloration or stains after so many times in the dishwasher.
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.
My husband is a trained chef and has so many knives that often don't fit the usual slots so this block is a godsend for him (and me). We can stuff it full and not worry about which slot to put things in.
