Rated 5 out of 5 by britt from wonderful set these knives are fantastic quality, i was able to tellt he difference IMMEDIATELY. i will say i agree with others who have commented that the block is a bit deeper than other brands but the knives are truly awesome!Date published: 2019-05-19Rated 5 out of 5 by cook10 from Great knifes I bought the classic set 10 years ago and they are as good now as the day I brought them home. They hold the sharp cutting edge and have been worth the money. I would buy again.Date published: 2014-02-27Rated 5 out of 5 by KAL609 from Super sharp! I have had my previous knives for 25 years and these were a long awaited upgrade. I was shocked at how sharp they were after my dull knives and I did cut myself a few times in the first day or two. All is well since then as I treat them with the respect they deserve. I feel that this set will meet my needs but I do have some empty spaces if I want to expand.Date published: 2013-05-31Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Knives that will last a lifetime! My husband and I purchased these knives after our wedding (over 2 years ago now!) and they have proved to be one of the best investments we have made in our kitchen! They are sharp, efficient, and classic! Certainly worth every penny... I would recommend them over and over again :)Date published: 2012-12-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Design from Happily chopping & slicing!!! These knives were given to me by my daughter when we moved into our new home. I don't know how I managed to cook for so many years and not realize what a difference good sharp knives can make. I have enjoyed them daily and have just given her the same set so that she can enjoy them too. We both plan to add on to this set. I highly recommend them!!!Date published: 2012-05-02Rated 5 out of 5 by SassW from Best Knives Ever I love to cook but have never owned "good" knives before. Somehow I never thought that they could warrant the price differential. Wow, was I wrong! These knives are amazing - they make chopping enjoyable. It's almost like the food chops itself.Date published: 2012-02-15Rated 5 out of 5 by MyDeb from Now these are knives! A Christmas gift to myself. I first used these knives at a friend's kitchen. His knives are 30 years old, just like new, very sharp. Now I have the 9-piece set. I am so pleased with the sharp blades for ease of cutting. I'm a lucky girl!Date published: 2012-02-01Rated 4 out of 5 by jwu805 from Perfect set for intermediate cook Received this set off of our wedding registry. Cuts like a dream! There's a great selection of knives although I wish the santoku were the larger sized one. Another small complaint is that I wish the knife block were less awkwardly shaped. It has more depth than I would have expected so it's a little tricky to store on our counter top...Date published: 2012-01-13
