Poor Quality
April 4, 2016
They look beautiful and we expected the quality to be on par with the price, but the handles became loose after a few uses. We took really great care of them, no dishwasher use, etc... Honestly it's unfortunate because I also purchased a Nespresso machine as a gift for valentine's day that was first sent to me and looked really used (battered box, stains, tears) and the new one that arrived didn't work. Finally, I bought lemon cupcake mix in that transaction and they completely failed. They didn't rise. It's really strange to have that kind of bad quality with two-three transactions in a row.
Pros: Appearance
Cons: Quality, Not Durable

Wrong Product
The image you posted does not match the product image here. I believe that you have commented on the wrong item, it looks like the williams-sonoma brand cheese knife set.

Nice looking, but not Laguiole quality
April 22, 2015
I love the Laguiole wine tools I own and thought a matching cheese knife set would be nice. These look fine from a distance, but have a cheap feel in the hand. Handles are not particularly well sanded, edges don't line up properly, and they are pretty light in the hand. Not what I expected from Laguiole, and I think the money can be better spent on other non-brand cheese knife sets.
Pros: Appearance
Cons: Quality, Weight

Laguiole
Just so you know, "Laguiole" is not a brand. Many companies make Laguiole knives and so on. The quality is all over the place.
I was pretty pleased with the quality of my Jean Dubost Laguiole steak knives, but I've also seen counterfeit versions of that for sale on the Net.
From Wikipedia:
"The word laguiole is a generic term, not legally restricted to any one company or place of manufacture. Such knives are produced by a number of unrelated companies in southern France, with some 70% of production coming from Thiers, a long-established centre of the cutlery industry."
