Rated 4 out of 5 by TinaLn from Just like a professional chef Shipping fast ,and package well. Nice quality and easy to use. This is what I want,really really love it!Date published: 2015-06-02Rated 5 out of 5 by HeidiCali from Forged knives I did not know what a sharp knife was until I used these knives. They go through meat like butter. They were a gift for my husband so I did my homework. He was tired of dull knives that would not stay sharp. I didn't think I would need the bread knife until I cut through a loaf of very fresh french bread and it stayed in perfect shape. It did not squish at all. The Santoku is my favorite. Since we have a few more slots in the block I want to buy the larger 7" to add to the set. You won't be sorry spending more for quality.Date published: 2015-01-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopandcook from Nice quality I have to start out by saying this is the first set of knives of any sort of high quality I have ever owned. I cannot believe I spent so many years using cheap knives...I was definitely missing out! I use these knives nearly daily and have no complaints. They are easy to handle and cut/chop with ease. I am quite pleased with this purchase.Date published: 2013-11-15Rated 5 out of 5 by NaturalCooking from Get for Beginner or Pro It was time to replace my 18 year old Henckel set. I went to store to handle each of the varieties offered online to check heft and ease in hand. I prep both right and left handed, and wanted something comfortable for either. the 9 piece has everything you need, including honing steel and TWO Santokus. Added the vegetable knife and peeling knife to set.Date published: 2013-10-06Rated 5 out of 5 by mkstallard from Excellent knives, well constructed These knives have an excellent weight and hold a sharp edge if properly maintained. Hand wash and do not use an abrasive sponge or cleaner on the blades.Date published: 2012-12-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Seussbd from Still the premier German cutlery I've owned a set of Classic Ikon for about four years and they remain among the finest kitchen essentials I've ever used. The Wusthof sharpeners are excellent and regular touch-up is all that's needed to maintain a perfect edge. With basic care and keeping them out of the dishwasher, you will never need another set of cutlery.Date published: 2012-11-03
