My son had been wanting a knife set for his kitchen . From the description and pic of this set I decided it was worth a try, The item was delivered in short order and was well packaged to prevent damage in shipment. It has virtually every kind of knife you would ever need to perform a task in the kitchen. Lots of eye appeal. Very attractive piece to be out on your countertops. Very pleased with the purchase and know it will provide many years of use. Thank you!
