Pros: Overall Quality, Design, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Construction, Material Quality, Durability
Excellent Set of Knives
These knives are wonderful. They fit nicely in my hands and I feel very confident using them. The sharpness out of the box are outstanding able to easily slice through everything with ease. (I test sharpness by slicing through printer paper and/or newspaper). These are wood handles and should be coated with a generous amount of oil and allowed to dry and repeat before use (Reply oil when needed). Do not allow these to soak in water and do not place them into the dishwasher. Hand wash and dry after use. The block is very nice however I do agree with other comments wishing for extra spots for additional knives. I would like to see additional spots for Case additional; 8 steak knives, pairing knife, tomato knife, and the new 7" Santoku Knife. I bought and use the Kapoosh Dice Universal Knife Block with my Case Kitchen knife. I would recommend these knives for professional and household use. Simply Awesome!
