I love most of the knives in this set. The steak knives were cheap, horrible, and notof the same quality as the other knives. The other knives are sharp heavy and wonderful. I ended up buying a small Ginsu steak knife set and adding it to this set. The steak knives I received are not what was pictured. Nice set. I am a knife snob and a professional cook. I use Ginsu Chikara at work and Love Love Love them.
I'm a huge fan of Shun knives but was not ready to pay $300 for steak knives. I opted for the Chikara series instead and am very pleased. They're beautiful and balanced, very sharp, and are a close match to my Shun classic professional sets. Even the block is impressive -- not snug in holding the knives, but solid. Would recommend for sure.
Great knives as I already own the set and got this for a gift, so the knives get 5 stars. But I was disappointed that the logo burned/inked into the block was a blurry mess, with ink all around it and isn't clear, was stuck on there half ass. My set i have didn't come to me like that and as this was a gift, that was a bummer.
