One shopper said, "Love this knife set! I've been looking for a set for a while but didn't want to spend over $100. These are quality and have a good weight to them. They cut with ease. You get so many knives, too, and I love that it comes with a sharpening tool and scissors. Can't say enough good things about this set."
"This is one of my favorite Amazon purchases ever," another shopper wrote. "These knives are amazing. They are beautiful for the counter and super sharp. I have Cutcos and I stopped using them because I like these so much better!"
