Great Kitchen Knives

My Cooking Level:Advanced
These knives are well designed, well balanced, and well made. One of the design features that I'm particularly fond of is the bolster is shaped so the full length of the blade can be used and can be sharpened. The edge that these knives come with is exceptionally sharp, fortunately, the set also comes with a high quality steel for touching up and truing the knives edges. My wife and I enjoy cooking and have frequently wished that we had our own knives with us when on vacation or visiting friends for a long weekend. These fine knives and their carrying case make this feasible.

I have used these knives on a daily bases for the past two weeks at my job in a deli, making 50 to 100 sandwiches , cutting potato wedges, pitting avocados,cutting roasts, turkey breasts, corned beef, pastrami, ham daily. They have held their edge exceptionally well. Their lighter weight is beneficial for the long hours of work. So far the whole Knife Roll has been a blessing.
