Nice cutlery but far from a true premium knife set. Quality of finish lacking, I had to return one set, very poorly finished, the second was better, but was still not as well finished as many far lower priced sets. Edges are sharp, but the metal work was below average.
This knife set is exactly what we wanted! It is beautiful, heavy duty, and very sharp! The weight of the knives let’s you know that this is a quality made set.
The knife block itself is wooden and well built. The knives I have fit...for the most part. I have some pretty long knives and thought that they would fit in the top section where it appears to be pretty long...but isn’t as deep as it appears.
I have wanted to purchase a nice set of knives for many years, so I finally broke down and got two of them, this one and a 5" utility knife (also reviewed). This knife is SHARP, and the edge is holding eve with consistent use. I make sure to wash and dry it by hand after I use it, and I know it will last me until I die. The only reason it lost a star is that Zwilling does not offer any knife block that will actually hold this knife! If you are holding the knife and the sharp edge of the blade is on a chopping block, the height of the knife, from the sharp edge to the top (back) of the blade is so tall that no blocks have slots wide enough to hold this knife. So, I have to keep it in the box, which I'm not so happy about. Seriously, Zwilling, you make a knife but no block capable of holding it? I'm not sure I would by this same knife again, I might buy one slightly smaller because of this, but honestly it's the only thing I can say negative about it. This knife is awesome!
