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.
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...
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.
