Very happy with the purchase.
nice steal ( 2mm thick ), u can feel the strength - doesn't bend like the other cheap ones.
Handle is basically plastic covered with steal kinda casing but its done very well so u don't feel any edges on the joint points.
The block itself is well made wood and the attachment that it comes with is perfect.
We put under the cabinets corner in the kitchen and it basically freed up the whole area.
When u don't need it you just turn it away, or if u need it you can turn it to exact place where u need it.
I wasn't very happy about that metal frame/wire support ( looked kinda cheap ) BUT was pleasantly surprised when it was a solid piece in the box.
I guess Amazon guys need to update the picture.
Knifes are very sharp and look very reliable ( after one week of use ).
You might wanna look closely at the screws it comes with, when you try to assemble it. there must be 2 long ones and 3 short ones in the little plastic bag. I got 5 short ones but detected the issue before it was too late, otherwise it might get lose with time.
Anyway, I got another set from amazon before, for about the same money - sent it back - but this one I will keep.

This knife set looks really nice and the knives have a good weight to them. The block itself is not the greatest when putting the knives back into their slots. You have to push them in kind of hard and straight on otherwise they just won't slide in. All and all I am happy with this knife block for the price I got them for.

Quality knife, always sharp, never rusts , used in dishwasher and left out wet! Better then a 300.00 nife set I own.
The knives are a super good price. Cuts bones very easy. Treat the knife as bad as you want still stays new.

it's been over 3 years and is as perfect as day one!

Absolutly love the quality of these knives. They are amazing and cut through anything easily. Easy to clean and very nice to look at, I wouldn't normally call knives pretty but this knife set is beautiful.

2.0 out of 5 stars From my installer... Feb. 8 2007
By Ladylaz - Published on
After years of putting my enginnering skills to use on the domestic front perfecting handyman skills and owning every tool known to man

I have a few observations about our recent Ginsu/swivel block purchase I just installed.

I don't offer this as advice, but offer these ten potentially money-saving feedback notes:

1)Resist the tempation to send the whole thing back when you realize you

bought knives with no full tang construction. Some Ginsus have'em, some don't.

It is way too easy to read specs an reviews then conclude "they all have'em."

These don't. Significance? Have you ever had a "cheap knife" fail? Here's what

happens: the blade come loose straight up from the grip while you apply pressure

to a cut. The "tang" on those is a measly little protrusion of metal only glued or riveted (at best) into the handle which has rotted away. These knives were cheap, but now we will simply be aware that failure may be in the future. Which brings up the second consideration:

2)Don't be dismayed by the limited warranty. Is "wear and tear" covered by the warranty?

What is a "manufacturing defect" and who will decide such if "an accident has occured?

Anyway, you can return it and get a new one for $3. Yes, that seems like it is more

than the initial unit purchase price.

3)When mounting the "innovative" swivel block note that whatever you mount it to

can support a "15 pound permanent load". Otherwise, you may experience a scene similar

to the opening of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. How do you determine this load requirement?

When you can't find a wall stud (recommended) with your magnetic stud finder (not included),

drill the wallboard and intall the cheapest wall anchors on earth (included), then

hang a 15 pound weight off of them for 10 years. Occasionally knock the weight around to

simulate the pull from a knife block. When it hasn't fallen down and destroyed your linoleum, mount the product.

4)Be careful taking the block out of its original box. The magnetic adhesive strips

can simply fall out. When you get a flashlight to find which knife slot they came out of

you will discover their re-installation is not trivial. You may decide to simply

use this unit as a counter-top model since having knives sliding out at you

sideways is not everyone's favorite game.

5)When you have chickened out and decided only the underside of your hand-made

$20,000 wooden cabinets can safely hold these "weapons" follow the instructions

closely. The mounting template for drilling holes "moves" ever so slightly no matter

what as you mark or drill. There is no tolerance for failure, and the penalty is

woodwork that resembles swiss cheese.

6)When you first assemble (not mount) the block. Remember to "snug: but do not

over-tighten" the tiny screws that will support the whole thing in the air. If you

tighten the holes might strip and you will have Ginsu'd feet. If you don't "snug"

just guessed it. Don't forget to attach the metal arm stand to the

unit as directed; it is really useful with all it's additional functionality, beauty,

and weight hanging in the air.

7)During your blind fitting of the bolts to the swivel unit, resist the temptation

to throw the unit through a plate glass window; it would be non-productive. Instead,

note that the "spacer" which you have dutifully installed in step 4 has actually

made the supplied bolts too short to work. This is because there either has been

some assumption that all cabinets are of equal thickness, or all bolts are the right

length under all circumstances.

8)Note: now that you have intalled it you have screw-heads protruding up right

inside the front of your cabinet. Remember not to put glass jars and such on that

particular shelf at night or you might have something creeping back out toward you.

Relegate that shelf to pasta boxes...the horizontal type, so as not to tear the bottoms

out of every other kind of box during extraction/replacements.

9)you'll need a strategy for preventing childrens access to these blades now that they

are essentially every bit as close to seizing as they would have been in a block on

the far back of the counter. Suggestion: never invite any children into the house,

and create a gated kitchen for your own. Now that it's up, be proud. You bought it

(so it MUST be the best). Note that the paring knife slot seems to have the magnet

recessed too far to work (or the magnet has stopped working). At any rate,

be still proud but leave that slot empty at all times.

10)Finally, when it gets installed under the cabinet and you're wife walks in and freaks,

telling you it looks like **** , tell her there were no studs in the wall and you were

just saving everyone's life, and to make sure no child ever goes in the kitchen again.

Oh, and mention the bread knife has a magnet attached to it at all times as a unique

feature, the paring slot is unusable, and that thing about re-arranging the pasta boxes.

Face of the block looked like it was cut with a hacksaw, by a blind person. Didn't even check the knives. Returned the same day!

It's not the miracle can cutting tomato slicing blade I was hoping for but it performs to realistic expectations. We use the undermount option to place these under our cabinet and have had them a long time now. I really like them and will probably buy them again as these ware out. Probably a 3-5 year purchase.
2.0 out of 5 stars NOT SHARP! Jan. 17 2013

I Love the looks and the weight of these knives and the fact that you are able to install it under a cabinet. However when i try to use it to cut a tougher cut of meat or try to peel a vegetable i was very disappointed. The knives do not seem very sharp. Again VERY VERY disappointed!
