Overall I really like this knife set. I looks and performs great and I have just one complaint. Pros: -The color of the block and knives is perfect for a sleek kitchen look. -The knives are solid and full stainless construction so I’ll never have to worry about the blade loosening. -8 steak knives is a great amount for entertaining. -The other knives are a good variety for lots of different kitchen uses. -The scissors are really nice for normal kitchen activities and have lots of functionality. I like that it has an in block sharpener. -I haven’t had it that long to know how effective it is but I have high hopes. Cons: My only con is that after my second time putting the scissors away I missed the hole and the tip of the scissors chipped the block just below the scissors hole so now you see a chip of unfinished wood in the center of the grey finish. Every user of this product will hit the side of the hole at least several times in the lifetime of the product and for it to chip after the second time and the first 10 minutes of unboxing it is crazy. It now doesn’t look as sleek and looks old and worn out. It makes me sad to see that chip and a product at this price point just shouldn’t do that. Update: After using this knife set for 6 more weeks I can say that my opinion remains the same. Overall I really like this knife set. I’m still not certain the in block sharpening is effective but it can’t be a bad thing. And I’m still super annoyed that the block chipped so easily around the scissor hole.

I have had this knife set for about 2 months now. I previously owned another knife set of lesser quality. I was lucky enough after years of struggling to cut and prepare dinner to receive this set. I have found it difficult for the last 4 years to cut potatoes and meat due to nerve damage in my arms and carpal tunnel in my hands. I always had to ask my husband to assist with dicing and cutting. This set is so amazing I can cut anything. Sweet potatoes were always very dense and impossible but once more I can do it without assistance. The self sharpening is wonderful. They are balanced perfectly and are very comfortable to hold. I would highly recommend these knives to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Love the set but my knife block is already scratched and I’m pretty good about not missing the holes. That’s kind of frustrating but the knives are great! I didn’t want to have to replace it that’s why I spent the extra money on it but looks like I may have to replace block....
This knife set is great! They cut really well. They are very sharp and continue to be because of the sharpener. They look good and fit well in your hand. I would recommend this knife set to anyone looking for a quality knife set. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
The knives in this set are always sharp when you want to use them because there is a knife sharpener in the slots that the knives rest in. The knives are very sharp and have not dulled with constant use. The handles are very comfortable and made so that the joints are very tight. There are no gaps for food to get stuck. They are very easy to clean. The only thing I do not like is the location of the scissors in the knife block. It’s in an odd location and the scissors don’t fit well in it.

I’m very satisfied with the 15 piece knife set. I didn’t realize how bad my old knives were until I used these. Slicing bacon and chicken is so much easier now! The knives are good quality, the blades are sharp, and they wash up nicely. I especially like the self sharpening feature in the butcher block. I like that it comes with steak knives, the paring knife, and the bread knife. I use those the most. Plus the shears- those are very handy. The only thing I don’t like is how large the butcher block is- it takes up a fair amount of my counter space- and it scratches pretty easily. The area near the scissors is already scratched.

A good high quality set. Easy to use. I used the for carving a turkey and was able to keep a good grip of the knife the whole time. I like the stainless steel appearance. It gives it even a higher quality appearance. Not all the knifes self sharpen. The steak knifes are serrated. I prefer non serrated steak knifes. I have used the set several times and have always been sharp and are easy to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Love the self sharpening feature. The block color is great but I don’t think it coordinates the best with stainless steel appliances. Quality is great and highly durable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
