Comments included, " The holder is a beautiful caramel color that the picture does not do justice. The most useful knives that I have found is the 7-inch Santoku and 5-inch utility knife." "I have been a professional chef for over twenty years...I am extremely satisfied with the performance of these knives and I am recommending them". "Best knife set for your money. You will not find a better knives set for $120 unless you find a set of high end Shun, Wusthof or Henckels for 85% off at a closeout sale somewhere."

What's Included in the Ginsu Chikara 12 Piece Set with Block?
Good Value for the Price:
These knives are forged from high carbon stainless steel, making them
sturdy and long lasting. If you hand wash them after using and use the
honing tool regularly, they stay sharp! I say this from experience. I
bought my set almost a year ago and they are still impressively sharp
(more about my experience with the Ginsu
knife set. The knives have a good weight, not too heavy and not too
light. If you don't need the steak knives, there is an 8 piece set available
for about $68. I use the 8" chef knife and 5" utility knife
the most (they rarely make it back to the block from the drying rack).
The 5" serrated can be used as a bread knife. I agree with the other
reviewers out there, the biggest minus about this set is a lack of a bread
knife. But it's so fantastic, I'm glad I overlooked this and made the
purchase! I've included my Amazon link below:
