Designed to outfit the kitchen with basic and specialty cutlery, the 7-piece set from Victorinox provides established and aspiring chefs with top-of-the-line tools. The set includes a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, 4-1/2-inch tomato and bagel knife, 5-inch mini chef's and utility knife, and an 8-inch chef's knife. For keeping blades in prime working condition, a sharpening steel is included. Kitchen shears round out the set, and a handy, attractive hardwood block neatly stores every piece. Each knife features high-carbon, stainless-steel blades, hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again, so every knife can keep its original sharpness throughout the entire life of the blade. In addition, full tang construction provides strength and balance. The black Fibrox handles feature a non-slip, ergonomic design to minimize wrist tension, and they are approved by the National Sanitation Foundation. The NSF mark is a certification of quality assurance and hygienic design, carried on all Victorinox Cutlery blades with a Fibrox handle. Sure-grip handles with finger guards are a valuable feature, since the handles inevitably get greasy or wet. A great gift idea, the set carries a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. What's in the Box:3-1/2-inch paring knife, 4-1/2-inch tomato and bagel knife, 5-inch mini chef's and utility knife, 8-inch chef's knife, sharpening steel, kitchen shears, and slant hardwood block.

These knives are ridiculously sharp. I mean "take fingers off" sharp. So sharp that I warn newcomers to my kitchen. So sharp that when my Mom comes to visit she refuses to use them. So sharp that my daughter accidentally stabbed me with one and she felt it before me! So sharp that I purchased a cut resistant glove for those not so skilled wth knives. I'm not sure the glove would help much, and I'm not willing to test it, but I have it all the same.
3 years in and I'm still well pleased with these. I'd say they're well worth the price tag and then some and be it you purchased them for yourself or someone else, no one will be disappointed. Don't let the "plastic-y" look fool you; these knives are savage and can handle anything you put them to. Be careful!
When I initially unboxed the knives I was disappointed. They were really light and the metal blades were quite flexible. This made them seem cheap to me. Everything about them since that point has been awesome.
My old Faberware knives would rust from the dishwasher. I had to get them out of the dishwasher ASAP or they would rust really bad. I have seen zero rust from these knives. Regarding sharpness, I thought my old FaberWare knives were pretty good and sharp, but the Victorinox knives make is seem like my old knife set was a set of spoons. These knives cut through everything effortlessly. It actually has an impact on how good the food is. My old knives would require quite a bit of pressure to cut meat. This causes the meat to compress. This compression seems to make the meat tougher and drier from squeezing out the juices. These knives go through meat like butter!
I highly recommend.
I love to cook and rely on good knives. This set has been excellent. Good balance in the hand, very sharp, and a nice variety of types of knives. I really liked having the steak knives in this set, too. (The steak knives are serrated.) The cutlery block holds everything well, and has a couple of extra slots. The only knife I really need to add to the set is a boning and/or filet knife.
I had looked at other Victorinox knife sets, but this was a perfect variety of knives for what I needed.
