Compact and sturdy (though not self sharpening)
Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2020
This knife block is a great option for anyone with limited counter space.
The set also has a very modern flair, so if your design style tends toward that, minimalist, or even industrial,
this would be an excellent addition to your kitchen.
The knives themselves feel sturdy and work well.
That they are each comprised of solid pieces of metal means never having to worry about the handle failing you before the blade does..
You also get a nice assortment of sizes and functions, plus kitchen shears.
One thing to be aware of, however, is that this is not a self-sharpening set.
While the set does include a sharpening steel, that is not the same as a self-sharpening holder.
Although that probably won't bother some people, if it is one of the reasons you select this set over another option, I could see that being a real problem.
Another thing to be aware of is that these knives are not dishwasher safe, so you have to be comfortable committing to hand washing and drying them.
We have been using these for a few days and very much like the weight and function of the knives.
Still, the best aspect of the set is the space saving nature of the knife block, which is comprised of four acrylic walls mounted on a flat base that has a very small footprint compared to more common angled knife blocks.
Had it not been for them being labelled as self- sharpening when they are not, I would have given this set a full five stars, instead of four.
Definitely recommend them as a good value with a lot of great features.
