Fun to use!
January 15, 2013
These knives are such a pleasure to use! You actually find yourself looking around for things to chop. The design makes holding the knife feel very effortless and enjoyable to concentrate on technique. I don't put mine in the dishwasher since the handle is wood and they still look like new after several years use.
Pros: Easy to Use, Balance, Easy to Clean, Weight

Beautiful knives
November 26, 2012
My mother gave me this set as a gift last year and I absolutely love it. The D-shaped handles on the knives make them very comfortable to use (I'm left handed and the shape works well for me) and they are easy to keep clean. The grain of the wood is beautiful and I really like that you can see the wavy layers of the metal. I've received quite a few compliments on these knives.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight
