I bought this knife sharpener for myself because I wanted to start cooking and eating healthy food. Since this requires a lot of chopping and slicing of fresh veggies and meats, I bought the sharpener and a very nice set of knives. The knives actually came with a "diamond surface" sharpener but it was round and I did not like it compared to this sharpener. The surface of this sharpener is flattened so you get perfect contact between the blade of your knife and the sharpener. It's also not such a rough surface and does not 'grate' the blades of my knives.The handle is perfectly shaped to hold with a good grip. I am female and my hands are not large so this is important to me. Although there is a ring on the end of the handle for hanging from a hook if you want, the surface of the sharpener is metal and sits perfectly on my magnetic strip that holds all of my frequently-used knives. I am very satisfied with this sharpener and I highly recommend it.
This is a great set for the average chef. I am not a professional but do like to cook using fresh foods and so use this on a daily basis. It came exactly as described. The set included a sharpener and each piece did need to be sharpened prior to use. The set also looks very nice with my black and stainless steel kitchen appliances. I have already thrown away all my other mis-matched knives.
I purchased a small range of Wusthof Knives along with this carving set. I am thrilled with the quality and feel of these products. I love to cook and prepare all types of food. Carving is a breeze now.
This set is a welcome addition to our kitchen, compared to the toxic nonstick coated pans we had previously. This is a beautiful set, with mirror polished exteriors and brushed satin interiors. Very nice heavy weight construction, with riveted handles, no more tightening screws on loose handles, and the handles stay cool. The included stainless steel lids fit nice. The pans heat up quickly, cook nicely, and food sticking doesn't seem to be a problem as long as the pan is preheated with oil first. Overall very happy with the set, still can't believe the exterior polished finish, it looks as nice if not better than the most expensive competitors sets out there. Would definitely buy again!
