Any person that has ever tried to slice the golden crust of a baguette with a paring knife, or to peel an apple with a chef’s knife, knows the importance of stocking a wide variety of cutlery in the kitchen. A single recipe may require four or five different knives to cut, dice, and slice with efficiency and ease. To cover this wide gamut, Ginsu offers a new comprehensive cutlery set. From the International Traditions cutlery line, the 14-piece set comes equipped with a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, 4-1/2-inch utility knife, 5-inch boning knife, 8-inch slicer, 8-inch chef’s knife, 8-inch bread knife, six 4-1/2-inch steak knives, kitchen shears, and knife block. With this wide variety of blades, the set makes a wonderful housewarming gift for a young family establishing their first household.

The blade of each knife was forged from Japanese 420 series stainless steel with full tang for increased balance and permanence. The hygienic stainless-steel construction resists rusting, staining, and corrosion. The craftsmen at Ginsu employ a specialized Symmetric Edge technology, notching matching serrations on both sides of the blade for enhanced precision and smoothness for left- and right- handed users alike. The balanced two-dimensional serration eliminates the need for sharpening these knifes. Stainless-steel handles are curved to provide an ergonomically-friendly hold for chefs. The knife block features sturdy hardwood construction to protect knives and permit quick access while cooking. For cleaning convenience, the knives are dishwasher- safe. Ginsu covers the set with a limited lifetime warranty. The knife block measures 8-1/2 by 6 by inches. The set weighs 9 pounds upon shipping. –Jessica Reuling

  • I have never received the product which I ordered. I bought this product with a gift certificate of $40.00 and had to pay $5.32 out of my account. How will I receive my refund of $45.32? Order was supposed to be delivered on January 16, 2009 to 1451 N. Warren, #201, Tucson, AZ 85719

  • You don’t need to be a metallurist to know that steel in the 420 series is an extremely bad choice for most knives, unless it is a diver’s knife or some other knife where resistance to corrosion is particularly important. All you need is some basic research (visit some metalsmithing sites, etc). I recently started work with Cutco Cutlery, and being a skeptic at heart, I did some extensive online homework independently before I was ready to accept Cutco’s claim of making the world’s finest.

    I won’t claim to be an expert on metallurgy, but from what I’ve learned, I do know that 420 steels are appreciably softer than 440 steels, even with a decent heat treatment (we’ll give Ginsu the benefit of the doubt). Because of this, these knives will dull and lose their edge more quickly, and unless you know how to properly sharpen a knife and have the time and attention to do so regularly (e.g. a couple times a week), these knives will quickly lose their effectiveness. They’ll be sharp out of the box, of course. Most knives are. But for those of you who are happy with this product, use them well for a year and then come back and write another review for us.

    Bottom line is this: do not waste your money on this product. It’s cheap and shiny, but it’s a piece of crap. Not a great investment.

  • These are great starting out knives…but i do alot of cooking, chopping and cleaning the knives. It’s a hassle you can’t put them in the dishwasher(they rust) Nothing like the CUTCO knives I have. Like I said before you get what you pay for.

  • Knives are sharp and have a great heft to them and feel good in your hand; however the grade of stainless is VERY poor – first time through the dishwasher brought on rust spots.

  • These knives are like that made for a childs playset. They are sharp don’t get me wrong, but they dont fit into the block properly. I am having to return them after trusting in such great reviews! Why this item has so many good reviews is beyond me.
