Sharp, hold an edge well, and good looking. I hand wash them. It’s not really a pain to wash a few knives. They are very comfortable to cut with as well. I’m glad I bought them.

Nothing feels better in your hand than these handles, they are not made for small hand though but for me they feel great. The material used to make the knife handle is much more important than you might think. Wooden handles have a tendency to rot or corrode. A corroded handle will make the blade fit loosely, which can be dangerous. These feel and great they are less likely to break than many other handles and are not overly heavy.
The way that a knife handle is designed is important. The part of the blade that goes into the handle (called the tang) should go all the way through on both sides. Many knife tangs only go part of the way through the knife’s handle or on one side. This may cause the blade to come loose, but this has a full tang. They are well balanced and you need that to make sure you don’t cut your self
Cutting with these tools is great since slicing is so easy.. I have tried with other knives, but never got as good of results as with this set. These are worth every penny, but do take care of them! They do need hand washing.
