- Full tangs are triple riveted to the handles for exceptional durability and control.
- Durable polymer handles are contoured for a comfortable grip.
- Handsome hardwood block safely stores 13 items and is gentle on knives’ edges.

- Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vegashomecooker from top of the line awesome knives, great feel , keen edge, everything you want in a chefs knife set!Date published: 2013-12-06Rated 5 out of 5 by WeirdHarold from I have been eyeing these knives for over a year I have been waiting for over a year to get these knives. I spent close to $700.00 on these and two extra Wusthoff knives to add to the set of twelve. It was worth the wait as I use them daily for my food preparation. The steak knives are excellent it would be a touch of class if some high end restaurants would include them when a steak knife is called for. I just feel good knowing they are a part of my kitchen I have no regrets. I intend to add the 6" chef's to the set.Date published: 2013-07-06Rated 5 out of 5 by CMarie from Love, Love, Love These knives are the best. I wasn't sure about spending almost $500.00 on a knife set, but I plan on having them a very long time (and adding to them). The only thing I do not like is the knife block that comes with these sets. These are not made in Germany, they're made in China.Date published: 2012-09-18
