guru: These are excellent knives that cut very well and stay sharp. Highly recommended for cutting up good grass fed beef steaks and such.
Katherine M. Lloyd: We got these as a wedding present 9 years ago, always put them in the dishwasher, not one of them is stained or less sharp or marred in any way... EVERY time we use them with company we get comments on how wonderful they are. Only just now getting around to writing a review because I am ordering some for my brother's family for Christmas, they have gone on and on about these knives for years. I finally have the money to get them some.
M. Petersen: The thing I hate about most steak knives is that their handles are either ugly, or they come loose when the knives are older. These knives have neither problem. They are solid stainless steel, blend in with just about any stainless pattern, and look pretty indestructible. Elegant, functional, and a nice weight to hold in your hand. You can't go wrong!
Nathan T. Peirce: I love the angle of the blade and the elegance of the "neck" of the blade. This is one piece of metal per knife. The crisp line between the handle and neck is real, not illusion, but it's not a joint either -- it's protruding, not recessed. These are extremely sharp! Watch your fingers. I think these look great as steak knives along with silverware such as "J.A. Henckels 45pc Bellasera Flatware Set" which has a similar angle to the main axis of the blades.EDIT: I bought a second set, from the same Amazon webpage, confirmed by purchase history, manually locating my review on the associated reviews page, and by having to edit this review, not being able to leave a new review. I establish this so firmly because the second set is not the same as the first! (I'll describe the difference in the next paragraph.) I don't know if this difference is the fault of Amazon mixing up model numbers or if Henckels quality control for different production facilities of the same model is different, but it's NOT a very subtle difference and it's disappointing. I know someone else who got a set around the same time as I got my second set, and his is the same design as my second set, so I believe the style of my second set is the one you will probably receive. Inconsistency of style is why this review has dropped from 5 stars to 4 stars. Normally that would cause a drop down to 1 or 2 stars, but these are just such darn nice knives that I suspect there is a model number difference and Amazon is at fault rather than manufacturing inconsistency.The second set is high-quality craftsmanship just like the first and identical upon cursory inspection except that the second set has a rounded tip. The tip is not as rounded as a butter knife, but it is distinctly rounded when compared to the first set. The tip of the first set is nearly a perfect triangle which is still pictured on the product page as of 24-Nov-2011. Both sets are elegant and well-balanced but the wicked throwing knife look of the first set is replaced by a stylish but domestic look in the second set due to the rounded tip, which may improve or ruin the charm of this knife, depending on who you are.Other thoughts, having used them for quite some while now:I should mention that the elegance of form will probably have the negative side-effect of not fitting nicely in ham-fisted grips, by which I mean the grip of a large hand that lacks dexterity.One factor in that is the slightly small size. (The knife is more dense than usual plastic- or wood-handled steak knives, and is as heavy or heavier overall, and has a solid, strong, quality feel but some may incorrectly assess the knife as being light due to the slightly small size in a large hand.Another factor is the long choil (unsharpened blade where it meets the handle) which is fine for someone with reasonable dexterity, adult or kid so long as he/she is old enough to use a steak knife at all, but it doesn't offer much finger placement for the clumsy.The cutting action is by shallow serration, so it's like a cross between a serrated and non-serrated blade, and I think it's a wonderful balance. In my view, serrated blades will saw through tough cuts of meat with less hassle than non-serrated blades, and non-serrated blades will glide like butter through good cuts of meat with less hassle than serrated blades. I prefer serrated because I'd like to cut down on the hassle of the more hassling cut of meat rather than pretend I'm always going to buy and cook perfect cuts of meat perfectly. I think this shallow serration is even better though, offering relative ease with any cut.In summary, this knife is top-notch or merely decent, depending on who you are, and depending on which version you receive.
nomsdos "nomsdos": I selected these knives because I wanted high quality steak knives that are also dishwasher safe. I read somewhere in the description or reviews that they are dishwasher safe. This is important because other people in my household (teenagers and husband) have absolutely no regard for what can, and can not, go into the dishwasher (I've replaced at least two Tupperware ice cream scoops for that very reason - they pit terribly in the dishwasher). I wanted to make sure the knives would live through a few cycles knowing someone in my house would most certainly put them in despite any lecture I may give about them being hand wash only. However, the care instructions in the box say hand washing recommended - no where does it say dishwasher safe. Aside from that, the knives are stylish and sleek but are smaller and lighter than I expected. Doesn't appear to be a problem because they do cut wonderfully and that's what important. Time will tell if they stay sharp and useful but I am quite satisfied with them at this point.
