I was looking for a set of knives that was not too big but did not look like everyone else. I saw it online, without seeing it in person, and what I received was a very well-packed set of knives, with a heavy and well made wood, the design of the knives is a beautiful red (although it is not my favorite color), original design and it looks great in my kitchen. the idea of having the sharpener at hand seemed an excellent addition. When I want to cut meat with ease I definitely use these knives, and the scissors are heavy and very effective. definitely a good purchase and addition to my kitchen. If you are looking for a medium set of knives, with what you really need (I do not like those who have knives to eat), and also give a chic touch to your kitchen, this is the right one.
