    the quality of knives along with the price, could not be beat. plus, to have 8 steak knives. another plus was that the knives are all labeled, so you don't have to keep pulling out ones you don't want, you see exactly the one that you are looking for.

    This set is nice with enough slots to hold all the knives, even the two bonus cheese knives. I haven't used them much yet since I just got them. I am looking forward to having a great time in the Kitchen.

    As a fairly new stay at home mom, I have learned about the art or cooking. I learned that its extremely important to have a heavy sharp knife and to use the steel to maintain the knife's sharp edge often.. I cannot emphasis enough how important maintanice is on knives effectiveness and longevity. So far this knife set is serving me well in all I do in the kitchen. The only drawback are that the handles leave a chalky residue. Not sure exactly why, but it's only noticeable to me.
