The knives performed well and looked good. No messing around with the pictures. However, they were light and the handles were not long enough for my hands. The blades are quite slender (not whippy, but still slender) and because the handles were too short for me the top of the blades actually cut my fingers a small bit. I gave them away. All told, except for the handles being too small, the knives look good, perform good and are well priced. A minor redesign and this would be a magnificent set for the price. As it is now? meh.
I don't use any other knives anymore. They help tremendously in all my kitchen tasks! I've got arthritis in my hands and wrists, and cutting can be very painful. The reason I try many different brands is that they do not stay sharp very long. Recently, I purchased a Ceramic knife sharpener, and I hope this can extend the sharp edge. If not, I will continue purchasing ceramic knives until they find a way to extend their sharpness. I do recommend these Knives, So far, they have held their edge fairly well.
These knives are AWESOME. They are super sharp - which is why the blade covers are very nice to have. Also, only the bread knife is serrated, so I believe that they can be sharpened should they ever become dull. Very pleased with this purchase. Additionally, they are "Top Chef" brand, which I trust.
