  • I ordered it on December 13th and I received it December 23rd with the Free Shipping. I needed a daily use block set because I love to cook and I wanted a eye-appealing since it was going to be sitting on the counter of my kitchen. The Block was nicely built and had a in-block sharpener which is fantastic. Each knife was sharp and felt heavy in the hand, which made it feel more stable. They were stainless steel and had a aerodynamic design which was very eye-pleasing especially in my stainless steel kitchen. The steak knives were not serrated, but cut easily into meat. The cheese set and mezzaluna were great bonuses along with the block set. They are not made with the same quality as the knife set so don’t expect it. The cheese set is nice with wooden handles, and the mezzaluna is very sharp with plastic handle.

    With the Omaha Steak Offer. As I recall it was a 3-Option deal. They would have either a chicken and burgers option, an steak and dessert option, or chicken and fish option. Don’t quote me on that, it’s just from memory. I found the offer under Special Offers on the page, but I’m sure you could search for it on amazon’s website. You would need the UPC bar code from the box, the printout about the special offer, and the receipt from amazon that came from the box.

    Overall I am very happy with my purchase and will buy from Chicago cutlery again, if not the same set.

  • since i have been educating myself how to cook properly, it was only necessary that i have a brand new set of knives. i used to have the serrated, no-sharpening needed knives and it was okay for a while then my hands started to hurt because they weren’t very friendly with fish and other stuff. i initially wanted a set of global knives but since i can’t afford to shell out almost $1000++ for a set of knives, i figured this would be a very good alternative, given that i take care of them very well. these knives are very sharp out of the box and had no signs of rusting whatsoever. i have now been using these knives for a month and have cut meats, vegetables and fruit with ease. the brushed steel finish compliments my everyday eating utensils and the rest of the kitchen cookware very well. the block is quite big and bulky but it houses the knives very well in each slot. overall, it’s a pretty set and with the lifetime warranty included, it’s quite a sweet deal.

  • These are our daily use knives, particularly the paring knife, and steak knives. We’ve owned them about four years.

    They are beautiful, clean up well, but occasionally do need to be polished when water or rust spots appear. We don’t dishwasher the chefs or carving knife, but we do dishwasher all of the other knives.

    Stainless steel doesn’t sharpen to as keen of an edge as some other high carbon steel knives, but then the high carbon knives discolor more readily. That is the trade-off.

    As a result, for heavy veg prep, we’ll grab the Global chefs knife. For raw meat, we prefer the Shun. At the dinner table. for roast or turkey carving, the Henckles outperforms the included knife.

    The scissors come apart for easy dish-washing and sanitizing and cut chicken bone with some effort. They stay sharp though, we’ve assaulted many a double walled cardboard box with them and haven’t deemed it necessary to sharpen them yet. The honing steel is about all it takes.

    In hind sight, while we’ve collected particular knives for particular work thus obviating the need for the two largest knives in the set, we’d still buy this just to have a matching counter top set.
