it is rare to find it selling at cheaper prices.We do check prices regularly

in high demand, it is often sold out so if you see it in
stock on Amazon and at a good price, it is worth

These knives are extremely sharp. You can test one
by holding it loosely by the handle and pulling it over a tomato without
applying pressure. Any knife from this set will slice through like butter.

of people mentioned that the steak knives aren't always sitting perfectly straight in the storage but felt that it was a minor detail that did not take away from the great quality of the knives. Also, a a few people experienced some discoloration after throwing them in the dishwasher
several times but that can be avoided by simply hand washing the knives.

as good as new over the years.

it often sells out quickly, so don't think about it for too long if you

Let me show
you what current owners have to say about it.
philyodaddy "Say Hello to the Bad Guy".,
I will start by saying that I purchased these for $99 which at $5.5 represents a great value-per-knife ratio
Here is a ranked order of things I look for in a Knife Set:
1) Sharp as hell
2) Sharp as hell
3) Sharp as hell
4) looks pretty
That is the entire list. I am not nearly proficient enough in the kitchen to have other requirements. The knives are sharp as hell. They cut the crap out of stuff. I enjoy showing off their sharpness to amazed visitors (more realistically, I just show my girlfriend over and over again). Look how easy it is to cut through lemons! You try! Case closed. They are also a pretty good looking knife set. I'm not sure I needed 18 knives, because I only know what about 8 of them do, but it is impressive looking and really makes people know that I'm the boss.
I purchased them about 1 month ago, so I cannot objectively weigh in on the rust-issue (I have none at this point). Therefore my only real con at this point is that this point is that the block is really big and awkwardly fits in my small New York City kitchen. Please note the massive size before you follow me to sharpcity.
Great product. Excellent value. Incredibly sharp and very good looking set and block. The rubber grip handles are ideal and the blades are appropriately weighted. Incredibly satisfied with this investment.
These are first & foremost, VERY SHARP! It feels solid,no slip but not bulky! LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They are so beautiful and you can't see the detail of the slots in the wood block but in person they are pretty! I am so happy I choose these!
Matthew J. Kelly "Twocastles".,
No complaints here. I am not a chef, nor do I cook often. But these are very sharp, and have stayed so for some time, despite my clumsy slicing and chopping. And the sale price I got? For this set, I feel like I have $400 expert cutlery for next to nothing.
As a certified chef, I have a very pricey set of knives I use for work, but I wanted a good looking well made set for my kitchen at home. These knives have a nice weight, excellent hardness (keeps sharp under heavy use), and they offer a good grip even with wet hands. The bamboo block adds a very nice decorative touch. The knives will require frequent sharpening IF you use them a lot, but for daily use in a home kitchen they will hold an edge for a long time.
The package claims "Dishwasher safe". I don't recommend putting them in a dishwasher. It will dull them and water will probably get in between the metal and the rubber of the handles. Wash them by hand with hot soapy water and they will last forever. Be very careful, the factory edge on these knives will shave your arm, in other words THEY ARE EXTREMELY SHARP! For the serious amateur home chef/cook these are a great buy. They will stand up to daily use and keep a good sharp edge, as will just about any Chicago Cutlery knives.
