Have had these knives for about a month now, and am still totally in love with them. I like to think I'm a bit handy in the kitchen, and these knives make me feel like a proper chef!
What's really worth noting is that in the month that I've been using them, I haven't cut my finger once, whereas my experiences with other, cheaper knives have been pretty bloody, mainly because cheaper knives blunt instantly, and then you have to press harder, so if you slip, the cut is bad. Not so with these knives, they retain their sharp edge (hand wash, NEVER dishwasher!)
Whether you're cutting meat or veg or fruit, these knives make food prep really easy.
The knife block holds the knives well and is sleek and pleasing to the eye, and the open fronted design means it's easy to clean.
