I love my knives
November 16, 2011
I have almost a full set. All I need are the steak knives. They are so light to use.
My only complaint is because of the wood handles you can't putter in the dishwasher.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Sharpness, Shape, Weight
