Had a set of these for ages now, with a sharpen here and there they are ok.
#2
Pretty good knives I reckon. Good price.
#3
asda have a 15 piece set down from £12 to £5
#4
I've had a set of Sabatier for around 9 years now and they are still looking like new, run them through the sharpener now and again and they cut like brand new!

Great product heat added!!
#5
Good price they were £50 but I keep scanning them when I go in just in case as last summer they were scanning at £6, heat added!
#6
quality stuff =heat

PS I'll save them the time.

Sabatier is not a make of knife, it is a style of knife. Well, there is a company called sabatier, who do actually make great knives, but they don't have copyright on that name. Any company can make knifes and brand them as Sabatier.

Which they have done. With these.

They aren't 'proper' sabatier knives. Whether they are any good or not, I neither know nor care. I hate sharp knives, I have a habit of slicing bits of finger off with them... :,(

PS to save the knife snobs the effort, DONT BUY THESE, SAVE UP AND BUY GLOBAL KNIVES THEY ARE THE ONLY KNIVES YOU SHOULD EVER OWN, I ONCE BOUGHT ONE FOR £430 AND KILLED A FOX WITH IT. (or something like that)

I'm not a knife snob, but don't think these are the made in france sabatier knives that are 40 odd pounds in john lewis. These are cheap knives made in the PRC

The wooden block is the number one place for germs in the kitchen !

Suggest boiling in hot water occasionally.
#12
Cheap for a knife set but as above there are many people manufacturing knives under the Sabatier name and quality differs from one set to another... I have a strong feeling these will not be one of the better sets.

There are more accidents with blunt knives as they are not fit for the job intended, in my opinion you are much less likely to cut yourself with a sharp knife when used correctly.

You're better off buying 2 or 3 decent knives from TK Maxx, I've owned a cooks, pairing and a santoku knife for 4 years now and sharpen them twice a month... They cut through any food in a straight line and cost me less than £20....
#14
I bought them last week and they are really nice and sharp ....
but I do agree with the wooden block issue ....
#15
i agree with Dylan. But not so pretty in the kitchen stuck in a draw. I had a set of 'Judge Sabatiers' fell apart after a couple of years I think the block was worth more than the knives!
#16
Any knife will go blunt with use, and saying that these aren't "proper" sabatiers is like saying Dyson don't make "proper" Hoovers.

A decent weighted knife that is looked after and sharpened appropriately will last ages - chucking it in a drawer or the dishwasher will ruin any knife. I have a set of "cheap" supermarket sabatiers for general cooking and a Hattori Hanzo sword for slicing sashimi/killing unicorns so there... :p

Fortunately managed to get some of these for £6 last year. They seem fine.

For anyone who's interested there was an article in the paper last summer and the Ikea 365 knives came out top against knives costing from £9.95 to £150+ . I bought the Ikea knives on the basis of that article and I can vouch for them. Not as cheap as these they range from £5 to £12.99 (or there about) and there are 6 in the range, but 6 months later and they are still the sharpest knives I've owned (and they haven't been sharpened yet)

I concur

At £20 these are probably a discounted set that would usually sell for abou £40 or so, making them pretty decent quality. Certainly better than these sets of 10-15 knives for a couple of quid, which are an absolute waste of money imo.

As already mentioned if you take care of your knives they should last ages. The only major difference between a decent knife and a very expensive knife is how long it holds its edge. These can certainly be sharpened to a razor edge but will start to lose it almost immediately. That is ultimately why people spend top dollar on the big brands. (Not Global mind, I really don't like them, far too light for me).

Bought the 'Kitchen Devil' set from Asda at xmas...wish I hadnt...the missus nearly cut her finger off on Monday...didnt realise I needed an exorcist before I could use them!
#23
I bought a set of Sabatier knives simular to these without the knife block about 5 years ago and after just over a years 2 of the handle broke on one side and the points of 3 of the knives broke whilst in use. I bougth a cheap set for £5 in Asda to replace the broken ones and never had any of the above problems with them.

Terrible, and completely wrong analogy.

It's like, if Dyson forgot to trademark their name, hundreds of cheap mickey mouse companies branding their 'Vacuum Cleaners' up as Dyson, just to dupe people into buying them even though theres are crap and nothing like proper Dysons.

Supermarkets brand knife sets up as Sabatiers purely to dupe unsuspecting customers into buying them, who were thinking 'oooh Sabatier knifes are supposed to be good'. As the first five or so posts in this thread proved.

What do people consider the best / easiest way of sharpening knives?
#26
the Lansky sharpening system works a treat for keeping them sharp. It is a bit pricier than the £5 anysharp tools that you see but well worth it imo
#27
Is there anything in-between (not looking for anything too special but don't want to waste my money)?

Agree - they had some where we stayed on holiday and I was blown away how good they were - will definitely look there when I come to replace

All knives need sharpening to keep them at their best - I have bought one of these - not the cheapest but it does the job beautifully - do my knives once a month and they feel constantly like new knives
