Rated 5 out of 5 by sissyandduane from careful these are SHARP knives These are the sharpest knives I have ever owned. I have owned Hinkles and several other high quality knives, but these knives are the highest quality and the sharpest. they slice anything with ease. We have yet to find anything they don't glide through ... even your finger if you're not super careful. I love them and would not buy another knife. I always thought my chef friends were just being knife snobs, but now I understand why. They have made me join the knife snob ranks with pride with these wonderful knives.Date published: 2014-07-01Rated 5 out of 5 by rockcityqueen from No regrets I absolutely recommend this knife set it is a great introduction to the this line of knives! They are super sharp and makes cutting veggies a breeze! The scissors can cut through just about anything.Date published: 2013-02-05Rated 5 out of 5 by docscook from Sharp and Easy to Handle This is a very useful set for starters. The paring knife is nice and sharp and cuts through vegetables like butter. I have not yet used the utility or chefs knife, but am sure they will handle as well as the paring knife. These are good looking knives and the wood block is an added bonus to keep them handy. The scissors comes apart for easy cleaning and is also sharp and cuts cleanly. Love these knives ... don't know how I've cooked for so long without them.Date published: 2012-11-08
