    This is a very nice affordable set of quality knives. It comes with a large variety of knives that are typically used in most home kitchens. There are 5 kitchen knives of various sizes, 4 steak knives, a scissors and sharpening steel included in this set. They all fit handsomely into an attractive wood block for counter-top storage. They feels comfortable in my hands and cut well with very little effort. I enjoy prepping and cooking with this set and find it has just the right amount of variety of knives for the average homeowner looking for quality knives at this price point.

    The Henckels Definition 12 piece Knife Block Set is the Perfect Set for Homeowners and a Great Starter Set. The High Carbon Stainless Steel is Easy to Hone or Sharpen. I like the Large Varity of Knifes. Well made with the steel going through the handles and three rivet design is hard to beat for the price of the set. The Hardwood storage Block is Great for keeping your set in one place. Great Value.

    Worthy of more than 5 stars!!! Wow! These are wicked sharp! I've included how they've packaged each individual knife for shipping...first, plastic wrap...second, cardboard over the blade, third, a plastic cap over the end of each knife and forth, the end product. I figured if they took that much care in just packaging every single item with layers of protection...these must be pretty good. They are the sharpest knives that I've ever known. I received many different knife/block sets over the years and this is by far the best! Caution: it does say that you can put these in the dishwasher but they also mention, not only in the product material but on their website...you should never put good knives in the dishwasher. You always use warm, soapy water and it only takes a minute and worth keeping your knives at their best by doing so...This is a great knife set and would recommend these to anyone needing super-sharp knives and a knife block that looks "upscale". :)

            Excellent purchase!!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My previous knife set lasted 36 years. This set has that same sturdy feel and durability. The sleek design goes perfectly in my new kitchen.

              They cut great!!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These knives cut great, however, I was very disappointed to see the staining on the blade that happened after the first use! My husband used the knife to cut a roast and when I washed the knife, less than an hour later, there were stains and marks left on the knife from the roast. We have had a set of knives for over 15 years (from another brand) that we never had this problem with. The staining is the only reason I gave a 4 star instead of 5 star. I know the staining does not affect the use of the knife, however, for the price we paid for this set I don't feel the knives should stain....especially since they are stainless steel.
