Great set of knives, very sharp, durable, and light weight one piece design which makes cleaning a breeze. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because of two things, the block yet strong, looks like a few 2x4's glued together and spray painted and a kitchenaid logo thrown on. The second reason is somewhat big for me, this was the small sized bread knive. Its only a 6" or so serrated blade where as my last set was about double its size and could easily cut loaves of bread. This one is a bit too small and can't cut a loaf very easily. The rest of the knives/scissors are wonderful and very very sharp.
Well the knives were very nice and sharp. Unfortunately they started rusting in less than a week. This is sad because they were an expensive wedding gift.
Best knife set I've ever bought, definitely recommend buying this set!
Purchased these for my second home in Florida... LOVE the set so much so that I am back to purchase for my full time home. They are very sharp, look great, and are solid construction-not your nailed together set! You won't go wrong with this one
