Rated 2 out of 5 by Graminthekitchen Did not meet my expectations.
I would have returned the set if I had not thrown out all the packaging. On a positive note...the block organizes knives in a small space and the knives were sharp out of the box. However they dulled quickly (even on my wood boards, and with hand washing) I realize that any knife needs sharpening from time to time just seems to be a need for it with every use. Blades are flimsy on some, so not too sure they will hold up to much use or continued sharpening. Paring knife has an odd feel, almost like an oyster shucker. The blade is stiffer than others in the set so it does the necessary work well once one gets accustomed to the feel. I have never had a paring knife with a rounded end it is useless for coring fruit. Steak knives are low quality. The kitchen shear included in the set does not separate, so cleaning after cutting anything greasy or sticky is a challenge. Glad this was purchased for my own use and not as a gift. I'd be awfully embarassed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ChefJordan I do not recommend these knives
Buyer beware with this set! I am a 14 year restaurant veteran and these are not the knives you are looking for. Though J.A. Henckel's does have some good products out there, such as the "classic" , this set is not one of them. Unlike their quality counterparts, these knives are stamped, NOT forged. This makes for a flimsy and weak blade. The steel is not high carbon though it is "stainless" and what little edge you can achieve is dulled in a few cuts. The shapes and design of the blades made it impossible to hold them properly while some of the blades weren't even finished completely. I quickly returned this item for a Calphalon, " simply calphalon" set from JCPenny.com that I absolutely love. Thank you JC Penny for making it right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisFor Great knives at a great price!
I've needed a good set of knives for quite sometime. I was told Henckel's makes the best knives in the industry but I could never afford. With the coupon and sale price I was able to purchase....the best set of knives ever!!! If you have a few extra dollars you really need to try them...they'll be the last set of knives you ever buy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by no30fan Made Thailand
Just like another review the top edge of blades seem unfinished. They're rough and some had burrs. These are not made in Germany just the rough steel is and it is sent to another country for finish and assembly. Its a shame because Henckels use to be a great brand...Oh and notice the little man on the block..only one man...so it is made in China or Thailand....if you see then with 2 little men then its mfg in Germany or Spain...It did not meet my expectations...

The knives look ok but the top edge could be much smoother. It seemed unfinished somehow because you can get hurt ryour fingers running them thru the top ...not the cutting edge...it also came packaged like cheap knives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kohny Henckels Knives are a worthwhile luxury
I bought this as an anniversary present. I have used their knives for close to twenty years and have been so happy with them. I've given them as gifts previously, but never at this great price. I'm sure they will be a hit.
