Summary: A great starter set
Comment: This is my first set of "real" knives, and they are great! Very comfortable to grip and use, and they are super sharp. When they first arrived, my roommate ran his thumb over the edge of the chef's knife and expressed skepticism about its sharpness. So he picked up a piece of paper and sliced at it. The cut was quick and smooth. He was impressed. My experience cutting tomatoes--often a good test--has been the same.

I had done a bunch of research before deciding on these knives. They are definitely a good buy, lots of value for the money. My only slight complaint (and it is really not much of one) is that they are advertised as dishwasher-safe, though hand washing is recommended. But when the set arrived, its instructions say specifically not dishwasher safe. It hasn't been a big deal. I wash the knives lovingly by hand.

Summary: Simply amazing
Comment: I purchased these with the need for affordable knives, and I saw the perfect review score for this set on Amazon (18/18 reviews at 5 stars). I figured I couldn't go wrong.
I didn't.

Obviously the most important trait of a knife is how sharp it is. These are simply the sharpest knives I have ever used. I've used cheap ones that cheat and use a serration to achieve sharpness, and I've used pricier Henkels and similar. A sharper knife is actually a safer knife, since your cuts will be precise. A duller knife won't cut where you expect and can cause injuries that way. To give an idea of how sharp these are, I was able to easily slice a bagel without using a saw motion at all. Not impressed? I did the same with a ripe tomato. Yes, slicing a tomato with just pressing down. I'd never been able to do that with the Henkels even after a fresh sharpening. These knives have made so many kitchen tasks so much easier.

What's even better is that for the price of that Henkels chef knife, you get 3 of the most useful knives to have in the kitchen. This price is simply amazing for what you get.

Well, nothing is perfect and unfortunately these knives are no exception. After being used to the Henkels chef knife, this Forschner was startlingly lightweight. I know that over time I will adjust for it, but I would have liked more weight I suppose. I would just suggest that until you're used to the weight, just be extra careful with the chef's knife. All said, this is such a minor setback for how amazing these knives are otherwise.

There is a reason why these knives have so many 5 star ratings. They are simply that good. For the cost, there is no way you will regret buying them. I purchased these on a budget, and down the road when money isn't an issue, I'll be looking first at Forcshner/Victorinox.

Summary: sharpest knives ever
Comment: We've had umteen different sets of knives through the years. None have come close to these! Cuts through an uncooked potato like a hot knife through butter. I don't think anyone would be dissapointed buying these knives!
