I love to cook and for me knives are really important. Before to buy knives, I read many reviews on these knives individually; for this reason, I decided to get a set, and I am so happy that I did. These knives are amazing! They are super sharp and very reliable, good balance in the hand, and a nice variety of types of knives. The cutlery block holds everything well, and has a couple of extra slots. I would recommend these to anyone as the quality is unmatched.
