Love this!

from Gloucester, MA – Verified Buyer

I wanted to upgrade my knives and did much research on quality and price of several sets. Reading other reviews helped me decide on this set, and it is just what I needed at the lowest price on the web. I didn't need steak knives, kitchen shears or the other knives in other sets, as I had upgraded those over the years. This set has just enough tools to accomplish my cooking needs, takes up a narrow space on my small counter and has room for a package of bandaids to rest on the base! Yes, despite reading the warnings in other reviews, I did give a knuckle a small painless slice while using them for the first time. I'm impressed with this set, love the design of the glass block, neoprene handles on the knives, and the fast, free shipment. Happy, happy, happy!

Great Modern Knife Set

from Pittsburgh – Verified Buyer

I should note that this is my first set of knives so I can't offer much in comparison, but I am really happy with the product. I ordered this because I have a small kitchen, and the glass holder does not take up much counter space. I also liked the amount of knives that came with the set since I wasn't looking for a lot. What comes with the set is all I need and I make use of every one. I love that these are easy to see and grab while you are cooking. It is definitely a different look from the traditional wooden block (I can say my mother was not a fan of the appearance when she saw them), but I like the modern feel to them. The knives are very sharp and fairly priced. I would definitely recommend this product.

Really sharp--both function and looks!

from Amarillo, TX – Verified Buyer

Great set of knives for the price. Very sharp and have a high-end feel to them. These fives knives are just enough to do about everything. I have only had them for a month or so and don't know how long they will stay this sharp but so far so good. I have abandoned all my other knives and use them daily. The glass and stainless knife block looks gorgeous on my counter.

Cuts So Good!

from Scottsdale, AZ – Verified Buyer

I've been looking for the perfect kitchen knives for over a year now. I am not a Chef BUT I do LOVE to cook and bake and wanted my cutting and chopping needs met with ease and precision. I didn't want the BIG block set with bunch of knives I don't use. I also wanted a different look other than the standard wood block. I also didn't want to spend 100's of dollars per knife. And so far, I am extremely pleased with the look, feel and cutting precision of this set. The other wonderful perk about this set is that I can take it apart easily to clean the inside of the glass! Pros: VERY sharp

My Favorite

from Edmonton, AB – Verified Buyer

By far my favorite piece in the kitchen. Good glass and steel (not plexi and plastic) make for a sturdy and very handsome counter piece. I won't mention the quality as I was not at all surprised. They are fantastic knives. Looks great. No clutter. Easy assembly.

Gorgeous and sharp!

Quality knives are still super sharp months after daily use and wash. Very fancy looking on my counter too

from Big Bear, CA – Verified Buyer

I am in love with these knives! I did a lot of research before deciding on a new knife set, and I'm so glad these were the ones I chose. The block itself is beautiful, and the knives cut everything with ease. I know I'll be happy with these for a long time to come

Beautiful set, and beautiful way to store it

from Hermon, ME – Verified Buyer

This knife set is perfect for home use, the block making it a joy to display them. Pros: Each knife is sharp and handles well in your hand. Cons: Having to handwash them, and the block is not big enough to add any other pieces...ie: the santoku knife.

from MD – Verified Buyer

This is a 5+ star rated set! I absolutely love it! The knives are sharp and well balanced. And the handle has a wonderful grip. The display holder is very nice to look at to. I would recommend this set!

perfect for a small kitchen

from BALTIMORE, MD – Verified Buyer

The knives feel well-balanced in your hand and cut cleanly and smoothly. I think the quality is excellent. (I've spent more on knife sets and haven't been as impressed.) And I'm so much happier with extra counter space I now have because of the glass block design. The set looks great in my kitchen. This set makes perfect sense for any kitchen - but esp. for a small kitchen!
