I bought this set of utility knives for my parents, who have been using beat up sainsburys knives for all sorts of kitchen tasks for years. Of course, the first thing they did was complain that these new knives were 'too sharp', but they've come to appreciate the set. I've used them a few times and I'm impressed with the construction quality, appearance, and practicality of each of the pieces. A nice gift for anyone you know who has been using blunt knives for years.

Perfect little knives, very stylish and incredibly sharp. So sharp in fact compared to any other knives that it's very easy to cut yourself, so do beware - I've stored mine separately as opposed to in the cutlery drawer so not to have any accidents. I've got so much use out of them, especially the orange one.

So pleased with my purchase. Was afraid the knives would be too small, but they are just perfect. Very lightweight, lovely slim handle and super sharp blades. Great colours. Have bought the Chef's Knife too, as was so impressed with the quality of Opinel.

Bought as a present for my brother - choose these as I've had Opinel pocket knives in the past and I'm familiar with the quality of their blades so expectations were high! I was not disappointed as the cutting edge is fabulously sharp straight from the box. They finish on the handles is, IMO, lovely - a good deep stain but with still some wood grain clearly showing. When I inboxed them to take a look my partner liked them so much she ordered a set for her sister's birthday as well! Unfortunately can't comment on how good they are to use.
