These very sharp knives offer great value for your money We bought this set 2 months back after reviewing them on Amazon. Since this is our first knife set I can not really compare with other name brand products in the market. But these were cheapest among the lot, and we are very pleased with their initial quality. As mentioned by other reviewers they are very very sharp, and easily cut through straight. The blades are thick and the handles look solid. We always wash/dry them by hand right after the use and never put them in dishwasher. We have not seen a single rust spot or any discoloration of handles. I will definitely buy more of these to gift friends and family.Update on Sept 30, 2007:After 6 months of use, I still stand by my review. The sharpness is intact and there are no rust spots at all. Very pleased with the quality and super low price. I regret not picking more of these from Sears Clearance, where I bought them for less than $20.Update on Nov 26, 2010:Just wanted to give a quick update that…

Cutting and slicing is a pleasure with these sharp knives! Suddenly, I feel like cooking again. Chopping onions, dicing carrots, making perfect juliennes with red peppers and mincing the garlic fine for my famous (!) vegetable medley is…effortless. All because of these knives. Ooh they are sharp! So be careful or you may end cutting yourself!I love the fact that the knives are sharp right out the box. Many people swear by their forged knife blades but that makes the knives heavier. I have another set from Pinzon (Amazon’s brand) and yet another from Cuisinart that I barely use as they are heavier and not as sharp as these knives. I think stamped blades are great as they are lighter and thinner like these Ginsu knives. If you cut vegetables more than meat then you need knives like these. For meat you need heavier blades with more balance and “brute force”. For slicing a tomato so fine that you can see through it you need a Ginsu. With a Ginsu in your hand you’ll end up sculpting roses from your radishes!Update…

great value We needed some new knives, but I couldn’t see spending hundreds of $$$.Yes, these are at the lower end and there are undoubtedly much better (and more expensive) sets out there.But these feel OK, are very sharp (as other reviewers reported), seem to be sufficiently sturdy, and have ably carried out the various mundane tasks we’ve put them to.For $24.99, what a value!!!————————————–Update 11/21/08: We’ve had these 2 years now. The very sharp edges have gone, but the steak knives still are OK cutting, not great. But, I never sharpen them. I don’t like the long thin knife (it’s not serrated, so not a bread knife): the blade isn’t stiff enough. (Hey, we’re talking less than $30 for the set!) I really don’t use the others.I liked the steak knives so well that I ordered a second set of just them. It’s a little weird at first doing paring with a serrated blade, but then you get used to it…
