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.
Nice set with block, but you will have extra holes as the block has more holes than knives. No big deal, as I'm sure I can buy a few knives and put them in, but I'll have to buy the exact designed handle...not sure if I will find them in a store, and I would have preferred a complete set with no holes remaining in the block. Thought that was what I was buying. Hindsight, should have bought a set in the store so I could have seen it myself. This set will go to our rental property, not in my kitchen. Knife snob.
Takes very little space on the countertop and has a nice presentation. Knives are typical ginsu quality and come shipped and wrapped nicely. My only reason for not giving five stars is that the wood block that holds the knives have slots slightly too wide for the steak knives causing them to look uneven if not placed carefully. Other than that I’d recommend this as a great little starter knife set!
