Love to travel! "katiemn": Don't let some of these negative reviews get you down .. these are GREAT knives!Prior to purchasing these knives I read the various reviews .. I find Amazon Reviews very helpful! My daughter in law has the Wusthof but I wasn't sure I was willing to pay quite that price since I don't cook as much as she does with her larger family. The Consumer Report information on the Profession S being "Forged because it is very close in form and function to traditionally 'Forged' pieces .. the only difference is that it isn't physically 'forged' from one piece of metal." .. helped my decision also. I then purchased the Henckels and have been just delighted!Right out of the box they were gorgeous! Not a single defect/flaw/scratch .. each one wonderfully sharp .. I tried each knife .. slicing a piece of paper using from tip to handle .. like slicing through butter!Quite frankly I would never abuse a fine piece of china nor a good knife .. so I don't worry about warping or discoloration of the handle .. it has always been my practice to just quickly scrub and dry my knife after use .. even my old cheaper knives still look good after years of use .. I'm so happy to finally have some GOOD knives .. trust me .. I'll take REALLY good care of these knives! Have some pride folks! (And if in time they DO get a bit banged up .. mores the benefit to my family .. it created some good food in the banging up!)I also found the Customer Service Department more than helpful when I called because I wasn't quite sure about one area of registering my product online .. they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.I do not have huge hands and these fit my hands really nicely .. AND my husband is BIG .. and he likes them also!
Pete Vere: My siblings purchased this set as a wedding gift for my wife and I. We love to cook, and this set is rather nice. Two years' after receiving them, we have never had to sharpen them. We've used them to cut bread, meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and fruit. There's a knife for everything, and the scissors are nice as well. They're very durable, and can slice through something tough like lean beef, or something fine like a ripe tomato. I recommend them.
Rebecca N: According to Amazon, I purchased these knifes in May 2003. It is still the knife set I use today. The paring knife has a very small nick in it, but it hasn't affected use enough for me to be concerned.I've hand sharpened these knives about twice a year, and nine years later, I couldn't possibly justify replacing them. They are serving me very well! I've probably used the paring and chef's at least 1000 times each.Great long term investment in a quality knife set. I'd buy this same set again, even though now, 9 year later, I could afford a more expensive set. No need.
S. Lin "sl101011": If you are already thinking about buying at this product and willing to read through all the reviews - you should just buy it! No one else has anything less than perfect to say about this one!* They are extremely sharp and solid, should be able to satisfy the most discriminating chefs.* This is a very complete set of knives, and should get you started on just about anything. There are couple extra slots in the block, just in case if you have extra knives.* Sure, there are better knives out there (not many, though) However, be prepare to pay a pretty penny. In terms of value/dollar, you can't beat this one.* It's a personal preference - but I don't really like the shape of the handle for the 4 stars set. They feel kind of awkward when I hold them in my hands.* With normal care and use, these knives will last you for 10 years and beyond - which beats the cheap supermarket knives one has to replace every 6 month. It's a good investment for the long run.
William D. Colburn "buys things on amazon far...: I went 30 years using knives bought cheaply at garage sales. You can get some good knives that way if you are willing to sharpen them and sometimes fix the handles. This was the first set of new knives that I ever purchased. They are amazingly sharp; far beyond my ability with a stone.The kitchen shears are also very useful. I wouldn't have ever bought them on their own, but now that I have them they are indespensible.The handles on everything are plastic, and one became discolored after it accidentally ended up in the dishwasher. Cosmetic damage doesn't detract from my opinion of them, or from the sharpness of the blades. These knifes are utilitarian, not decorative.I do think that this knife set is that it is overkill for what most people ever do in their kitchen. You have to be a pretty dedicated cook in the modern world of restraunts and fast to food to put all these tools to use.My set has perfomed beautifully on everything from juicy ripe tomatoes to butchering 3 month old lambs for a graduation party.
