Just picked up the Cook's Knife for £4.99 and it seems pretty good. Good weight and balance in the knife. Those of you that shop at Tesco will know the promotion, but for those that don't, the details are below. Not sure about the RRPs, but the knives do look like top quality (haven't had the chance to use the Cook's Knife yet). Don't think I will go for the whole set, but definitely want the Large Santoku and the Sharpening Steel.

Professional? surely it depends on the user.

If you pick up the FREE brochure inside Tesco's, inside it they are giving you 1 token (to the value of 5 tokens) so you can buy one of the items to start your collection.

Thanks for that. They gave me 7 when I put £50 of petrol in the car and got another 3 from shopping tonight. Shouldn't be much of a problem collecting plenty of these. Some of the checkout operators just tear off a few, whether you've actually 'earned' them or not.

where else do they sell these knives or have they made the prices up ?

No, it's 'Professional' in Tesco-speak - meaning that no professional would be seen dead with one. Live with it. :p
#7
not voting either way but they look like normal prices to me, but i suppose you would have to see them to judge quality.
#8
I'll be getting a few of these myself... well done posting the offer.
#10
What size is the chopping board, thank you and please :)

I saw these in tesco they are utter pap!

No professional would be seen dead using anything like this

The Cook's knife is on this link.

Did you actually follow the link and look at the knives, or are you just another 'blowhard' who opened his gob and let his belly rumble?

For starters, ALL of the knives that you posted links for have the 'rubberwood' handles. These are single piece knives, NOTHING like ANY of the knives you posted links to. "The simple classic design with integrated handle and blade eliminates hygiene issues."

I suppose I could have just settled for these quality items, at 89.9p a piece

I have a Thomas Rosenthal dishes and plates and it is top quality but the knives appear to be made in China specifically for supermarket offers such as this. This is from a forum across the pond

"OK, I did a little research, and these knives sound decent. They are
sold around the world, only through Supermarket frequent buyers point
programs. They are made in China for

TCC Retail Marketing Inc

Eight German reviews on dooyoo.de for "Thomas Rosenthal Messer" gave
the knives four or five stars out of five. Most of these folks are
young people who are leaving home for the first time. They liked the
sharpness, the way the knives fit the hand, and the sanitizing
benefits of not having a separate handle. One guy complained the steak
knife blades were too short. Nobody collected enough loyalty points to
get the storage block or cutting board."

In the above case the knives were giveaways when enough points were collected.

They seem to sell other 'Thomas' kitchenware, and it's all high priced, which 'hopefully' means it's quality made rather than rubbish... I'm going to take a punt on the cook's knife and see for myself...

Perfect crap to cut your finges off with. How they can put the word Professional anywhere near these I just don't understand

I may be wrong but I went and read the same reviews and I believe that they had to pay a reduced rate of €7.99 after accumulating 30 points at €5 per point...

Whoooshhhhh....

Do you wax your head as things appear to just fly over
the top.
My point is, is that they are crap knives, and any knife block
for around the price of this 'professional' set, will be a lot better.

Ok a few things coming from a chef that screams these are low
quality and in no way professional.

They appear to be one piece knives, or the same crappy steel for the
handle as in the blade, ignore the spiel about the hygiene aspect, there
is a reason why the majority of high spec knives use riveted handles,
only a couple of top brands use one piece construction, and even then
its not true one piece, and the blades are a different kind of steel to the handles.

They have no grip on the handle, very dangerous, not only for yourself
but for others too.

They will have hollow completely unbalanced handles, holding / using one
for more than a few minutes will be uncomfortable.

The handles aren't ergonomic, where you are meant to grip the knife its too thin.

I could go on all day, but I won't.

Then you come on to the 'brand' of the knives, the Rosenthal group based in the
Netherlands have no mention of any kind of knives on their website, very strange
for a maker of 'professional knives' not to mention they do this, most of the major
makers of professional knives shout from the rooftop about their, their knife making
harritage, and their awards etc, the Rosenthal company do have a Thomas range,
but for cutlery and crockery.

So waste you money on these, it makes no difference to me, but you will get crap knives
that for the same price you could get a better set.

Victorinox - not necesssarily from this website, though - check around for prices. You'll find that they're extremely well reviewed and equally well priced:

Thanks was handed vouchers at the checkout at which point i was loaded down so didnt really want to go back in store to investigate what they looked like, good info, think i will be getting the santoku knives
#27
Bought the chef's knife and the small santoku and I think that they are well worth the money... very sharp, nice in the hand... I'll be getting a few more between now and the offer ending. I appreciate that there are probably better knives out there but I'd imagine you'd pay a lot more.
#28
Second time trying to leave a comment...lets hope it works.

I have purchased most of the set, board and block etc. However after 1 use the bread knife rusted significantly as has the cook knife. They were hand washed and dried after use, and nothing acidic was either cut or used to clean them. Has anyone else had this issue??

Not altogether surprising, I'm afraid. 'Professional knives' are a bit like 'Executive homes' - best avoided.

Take them back to Tesco, and they'll almost certainly refund you immediately.
#30
It is horses for courses surely?

I was trained as a chef (many years ago) and have a complete set JA Henckels knives and yet would buy these without a problem. There are quite a few very good quality one-piece knives with hollow handles and I believe that as not many people can actually cook in this country they will be utilised and look good in most kitchens. So I'll be buying a set :O)

My hobby is cooking, fine dining etc and I am always purchasing knives and other kitchen equipment. For the price of these much discussed knives, I bought a couple of the basics to give them a try out.
I found them to be sharp, comfortable and solid. Very easy to use and I was happy with them. For the cost, average £4.99. the quality is decent and despite the origin of manufacture or distribution they were a GOOD buy. I have wasted more money on dearer knives that have sat in my drawer for ever. Well done Tesco.
#32
Does anyone know if they are supposed to be dishwasher safe?
#33
Received this as a gift from my dad.
I work in the hospitality industry so showed them to a couple of my chef mates including a mate who's a chef de partie at Noma, which happens to be the best restaurant in the world, he said they are a decent set of knives quite easily professional. He's used worst in other Michelin started kitchens. Not all chefs are minted.

i purchased the kitchen scissors during the tesco voucher promotion along with several of the knives and chopping board. while i,m happy with the knives the scissors however are a disapointment as one of the plastic handles has snapped right through leaving them unable to be used again. on returning them to my local tesco i can not get any help in replacing them. any help please!!!!!
