Aaron Contorer: Sorry to disagree with other reviewers, but my experience of the paring knife was that it's perhaps the softest metal I've ever seen used in a knife, and as a result, it's not very sharp and doesn't improve if you try sharpening it. My friend, a fellow cook who got it as a gift, doesn't like it; I hated it and would never choose to use it. There's a reason the price is so low.
J. Shuler: I was helping my niece set up her new home and we were trying to buy a lot of things for not that much money. I think it's so important to have good knives - but when I went looking - the really good ones were SO much money. I decided to try this pair because of the name - OXO - I have loved every one of the products I have purchased from them - and the price. Well, I was so impressed, I had to buy a set for myself as well. These are the knives I reach for everyday. My expensive set of knives are on my counter, but the convenience, comfortable feel and the good job that the OXO knives do - they are the ones I use most often. At this price, I can't imagine any home without them!
K. May "Weed": My daughter received these knives as a wedding gift and they are used more than any in her kitchen. They aren't the quality of the best German knives but if you don't put them in the dishwasher they will be knives you will enjoy for a long time.
Love Green "Jack": Why do I say these are a nice way to start? Well, they are great knives, but after using them I think you will want to progress to the OXO MV55-Pro.I started with these and really liked them. Nice handles, good cut. But then I bought the Pro...and well, they REALLY live up to their name.But these are a good inexpensive way to "try out" the OXO line.
Not my real name guy: I own this set and it was a complete waste of money. I was originally attracted to these knives because I own a number of other Oxo Good Grips products and, with the exception of the garlic press (which has a mediocre design and rubber handles that fall off), I have been very pleased with the quality of their products. There are two problems with these knives:1) The blades are made from cheap stainless steel that will not take or keep an edge. They are dull to the point of being dangerous and notwithstanding several attempts with my diamond sharpener, could not be made sharp. I would use a serated steak knife before I would use one of these knives.2) The handles are very poor in design and construction. They have a portion of rubber ridges that are very soft and so flexible that they prevent obtaining a decent grip on the knife. They also are not shaped in a particularly ergonomic fashion and appear, as other people have commented, as if they would not stay long on the knife under any sort of heavy use.Avoid these knives - there are a multitude of better alternatives out there. Although I have no recommendations for a replacement for the small chef's knife, I do have a recommendation if you are looking for a good moderately priced paring knife: buy one of the Henckels or Victorinox plastic-handled 3" paring knives available here for around four dollars. These parers (I have one of each brand and they are similar in design, shape and quality) will take a nice edge, fit the hand much better and are less expensive, to boot. If you're willing to splurge a bit, I can highly recommend Kyocera's 3" ceramic paring knife. It will set you back thirty bucks or so, but it will have the sharpest edge you've ever experienced on a knife, sharp enough to cut a grape into a slice that is a fraction of a millimeter thick, thin enough to be completely transparent.
