Rated 5 out of 5 by mem7 from Perfect set I recently received this set in the mail off my wedding registry. My fiance and I were so happy when we got them that we actually danced around! We've been using them for less than a week and we are incredibly pleased with them. They are the perfect weight and allow me to slice and chop with extreme precision. Very pleased with this set.Date published: 2017-04-16Rated 5 out of 5 by kittyb from Great way to start off! I have been replacing my knives little by little. I started with this set as it has the perfect pieces that you will use the most, which I do. I couldn't believe how dull my knives actually were until I started using these. Be careful they are incredibly sharp! I look forward to buying more pieces. I didn't buy a set since I thought I would rather pick the pieces I would actually use vs. what came in the set! These knives are not cheap ... Choose wisely!Date published: 2014-11-27Rated 5 out of 5 by KristenIr from My favorite knife set These knives are the best. When I recently moved and my Wursthof knife set got stolen. I was so upset to loose all my good knives. I started to re-purchase to replace all that was lost. This set was a very good deal and I immediately starting putting it to good use.Date published: 2013-03-18Rated 5 out of 5 by janmitch51 from great knives First quality knives I have owned & I am 60 years old, waited a long time for these but they are well worth the wait!Date published: 2012-01-20
