I really love this set. As well as looking stylish in my new kitchen, it is good and practical. The swivel action is useful, each knife handles well and is very sharp. They are such a pleasure to use that I really enjoy preparing food with them. The knife sharpener will ensure they keep their sharpness and the scissors are also sharp and practical. The knives can be stored splayed or in an upright position. I can highly recommend this lovely knife set. Thank you to whoever designed it.
I haven't used these knives for over 9months now! the blades became rusty very quickly and the black coating on the handles peels off. I wouldn't recommend these and should have complained much sooner and attempted to return them. I still use the knives I have had since my wedding in 1982 these are sharp , no sign of rusting and the black handles are still black and they are washed in the dishwasher after every use.
