These knifes are well made. The fork is terrific . The feel is good in your hands and very stabilizing when slicing meats. My Husband could use the serrated knife alone for everything though I try to convince him to only use it for bread. The slicing knife takes a nice edge and is easily sharpened though I have never used the knife sharpener included it as a nice balance. I use either a soft arkansaw stone or an electric sharpener.
Looks great too. Have used it to fillet fish, debone wild turkey and a chicken or two. Keeps a nice sharp edge but I sharpen after every use so it's always ready. Use a quality hand sharpening stone or honing steel. Don't use junk to sharpen or you can ruin a good knife.
I purchased these knives while in culinary school. I couldn't afford the high end, professional knives I needed for my classes and my apprenticeships in professional kitchens. I took a a gamble and ordered these knives. The price was just incredible, made even better by the surprising quality of these knives! They have worked out great, arrived very sharp, and they've sharpened beautifully with my steel and stone to keep them maintained. The weight of the handles are just perfect for me, a bit on the heavy side, which I prefer; they have a non-grip, very washable surface. I have received compliments for them in professional kitchens by my Chefs! When I told them where I got them, they were shocked at the quality and the look of them. I'd recommend this set for anyone. I rated them "Good" until I can afford the top of the line Japanese set (very $$$) that I really want, but for now these are doing just great.
They arrived only three days after I ordered them! I am absolutely delighted with each one. I'm becoming a bit of an accomplished chef and I needed a good solid cleaver to cut up chickens and cut through bones. Now I can save money by purchasing whole chickens and fish and the value priced large hunks of beef and just chop them down to size at home. The fillet (or boning) knife accomplishes its task with ease, able to follow the curve of a large fish and easily separate the skin from a chicken's breast. The chef's knife rounds out the trio with easy handling, whether I'm chopping an onion to a fine dice or slicing a tomato to burger topping perfection. Thanks to their solid build, they feel balanced in my hand so I'm certain the ergonomics involved will protect me from fatigue and help me avoid accidents. I'm careful to wash and dry them immediately after use so I haven't had any negative experiences with spotting or rust. I also run them over the sand stone before I put them away to help maintain their sharp edges. NOTE: They don't come with a knife block and I was afraid of putting them in the drawer so I got a magnetized knife holder from the hardware store and mounted it over the counter. I recommend this arrangement for anyone - the knives are easy to access and, thanks to their clean lines, look attractive on the wall. Bottom Line: I just can't say enough about these knives. The price was a real bargain but the truth is they're worth twice that much or more. These knives are helping me save time and money . . . and they look really cool.
