After using the "discount" knives we received for a wedding gift 17 years ago my husband and I decided it was long past time to finally invest in a better set of knives. After reading countless reviews and taking into account our "skill set" in the kitchen we decided the Classic knife set was the best choice for us. We were NOT disappointed!!! Very well balanced and the knives are very comfortable to hold. This was a great starter set and we can't wait to add more of these to our collection. Would highly recommend these knives to someone just starting out in the kitchen.

In this day and age with so much junk out there it is uncommon to run across something outstanding. These knives are of such superior quality it is areal pleasure and treat to use them. I am more than pleased with the quality. Since we are serious "canners" we use knives constantly.They retain a sharp edge after hours of use. We chose the "classic" and am thrilled with to the point of ordering a second 31/2" paring knife. If you want the best- this is the knife of you.
