by JRHulsman Terrific Product
Durable construction, well-balanced knives, superb cutting edges, attractive design. However, there are two things I would change. First is the angle of the block; it needs to be more upright, with the front face with the Henckels logo more vertical and the long base shorter (see Photo 1, showing a green line representing a better angle for the base). Second, I found the scissors to be at an inconvenient location; i.e., always in the way. So I made a Velcro loop-slot on the back angled surface of the block and slid the scissors in there (see Photo 2). Much better! But these things are a matter of my personal taste and have nothing to do with the quality of the product. Also, I bought extra paring knives, and there are enough leftover slots in the block to accommodate them. Wonderful! And I love the Henckels logo on the knife butts. Classy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dixie The handle style and wood block are great
I like the thickness and sharpness of the blade. They are very sharp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daisee Makes slicing, dicing, and chopping soooo easy!
Just got these knives but am already enjoying tremendously! Definitely cut down on chopping time. Too soon to rate on longevity but they meet my needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnO A good set but not great.
A good set with all you need for the kitchen. Nice handles and well balanced. The metal finished is not highly polished and does not cut smoothly through thicker pieces of food. Also does not clean as easily as highly polished utensils. But the set is a Good Value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cdeb315 Love these knives! The only possible negative is the position that f the scissors in the block is a bit awkward.
The knives are seriously sharp and have good weight to them. Very good quality. Replaced a set by Cuisinart and there's really no comparison. The only drawback is the intended position of the scissor in the block...quite awkward. I actually moved mine to the unused slot at the top left - have to position them diagonally to fit, but it works better for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shopcmic The Best Investment that will last a life time!
I have been in the market for a really good knife set. I asked some chefs in restaurants which type or brand of knife they prefer? Several of them suggested Henckels. I knew they were kind of pricey but thought that I would try them out to see if they were the right set for me. I LOVE THEM! They have great weight and balance and are VERY SHARP! I never knew cooking could be more fun when you have the right kind of knives to start off with. I priced them around at various stores and JCP had the better deal with a better selection. I recommend these for anyone that does any type of cooking. You will be very satisfied!
