These knives arrived quickly. I have a large family, so I like that this set had 8 steak knives. I am not a gourmet cook, but I do cook often and these work perfectly fine & sharp too. The only downfall is that some fo the brand name labels (little silver ovals in picture) on a few knives had fallen off durring shipping. I had to stick them back on & hope that they don't fall off and get lost. Overall, I am happy.
