We got our first set of Henckels knives 15+ years ago as a wedding gift. While most of those knives are still good, it was time to get a new set. These knives are REALLY SHARP so be careful if you are not used to working with a sharp knife. The kitchen scissors are excellent. My only ding is that I wish the 4 smaller knives in the front were not serrated on the end. I think they are supposed to be steak knives but I tend to grab whatever is handy and the smallest knife needed to do the job. I took the steel out and put one of our old Henckels knives in it's place as we will not use the steel that often and don't need it at the ready.
This is a beautiful set and the knives are sharp. My only complaint is that the stand holding the knives is black and doesn't coordinate well with the knives. Other than that, I was very pleased with my purchase.
