Saw these instore - looked like a decent set at around £4 per blade .. or less if you calculate in the block. No idea how good they are but have seen them listed previously a few months back at this price. Wondering if a good one or not overall? (1st deal post so sorry for any errors)

Perhaps cheaper with Quidco and voucher it is worth a look?

BTW - Saw this older deal listed before also .. seems different though:

I have an excellent 10 piece knife set that i got from aldi last year for £20. They have them in again last week, but i think they will have sold out quickly as they are very good for the money.
#3
bought a set like this, same brand, from Mackro before christmas and thought I'd got a good deal at £50 :(

Just bought a set for my daughter on this deal - too good a price to miss! The knives are usually around £10 each
#4
If these are made the same as the ones I got for college then this is an absolute steal. I have a set of Sabatier knives, purchased in 1986 for my college course. They are still as sharp and in tact as they were in 1986, 22 years ago. No missing rivets or damaged handles. So unless their quality has diminished over the years then I would certainly buy them again, the fact is though I still don't need to!!!! :-D

The cutting edge of kitchen equipment!!!:whistling::whistling::whistling:

Are these knives dishwasher proof?
#7
Mine came last week and they're great - FYI they still have stock of these
#8
Thanks very much just got mine and they're good quality and very sharp. Great find.:thumbsup:

To the person that asked if these were dishwasher proof.... I wouldnt risk it.

Yup, you're right .. they're not the real deal ... a bit of googling will bring up a bit of info on that from when I last checked. I think they're decent quality for the money, but not as good as the real deal.

After researching a bit I spent my cash on a single Victorinox knife (£20) ... after having owned many knife block sets at the £20-£30 mark all I can say is ... "WOW!!!"
I'm not sorry I spent the money and can see why people pay a whole lot more than £20 per knife. I'd love to try a £70+ one .. but thats way outta my budget .... unless of course I hit the lotto :-D

Wiki lists about 20 different companies that all use the Sabatier trade name. There is no real Sabatier. But like all things if it's cheap, it's probably cheap for a reason.

Not a bad price for a set of knives though. Voted hot

I think you will find that Sabatier K is one of the authentic ones and are used as professional knives

This is true but you should not take what wiki says after all, I have spotted many errors on wiki. People in the know will know that many trade on a sabatier name but only 2 or 3 companies, all historically related to each other can be considered true sabatier.
You will know when you pick a real Sabatier knife and use it.....
#15
I am surprised this is even here as this is not even one of the cheaper Sabatiers like Judge, Stellar or Richardsons of Sheffield
#16
Sabatier Lion are also good authentic french sabatiers. I don't know what on earth these ones are but I don't recognise them.

That is true.

Authentic French Sabatier knives will cost around £200 a set and you will know how good they are by its weight and its performance
#18
These are really good sharp knifes and excel the quality for there price range..

#19
A good write up no doubt ukmonkey but the chef's knife is only 6 inches and I have used a set previously and Richardsons aren't the best, even when sharpened.
A set of Henckel or real Sabatier knives are the ones.

Not sure if these are any better.. but have jsut ordered a set so can tell you in few days.

That is a very good price for the Stellar which is a mid range Sabatier.......

I think you should report back on how good they are. It's good to have some feedback.

J.A. Henckels FiveStar series
http://www.knivesandtools.com/categoryimages/zwilling5st.jpg
The J.A. Henckels Five Star series feature seamless ergonomic handles and Friodur ice-hardened blades from high grade stainless steel.
The Five Star range is a masterful blend of sharpness and ergonomic design.
Used by chefs in the business and only £90. This is cheap cos this is normally around £170 elsewhere
#24
lion sabatier is not bad at £90 but that Henckel price is really good.
If you can stretch to the 4 star ones at £140, it will be well worth the investment
#25
the carving knife and bread knife seem rather small at 8inches..........

is 4 star better than 5 star?

5 star
#29
The 5 star is generally considered better but they both use the same blade, an ice hardened steel.
I think for £90, this is a true professional knife set. You won't be dispappointed.

A chef kitchen knife?
What experience did you have with the knife sets that are £20-30?


Errm ... not sure what you mean there? ... Yes, it was the Victorinox chef knife I bought. 19" I think it was. From the bit of research I did, it seemed to be the best value in the chef market along with quality. Also have to remember them chefs, they worry about theft. Lose a £20 knife on the job, or a £100 one that is almost the same in terms of performance. I'd go with the Vitcorinox one just on that basis alone.

With the sets at the low price range, they were ok ... but did blunt easily ... didn't cut as well. I'm no chef by any standards ... but I do like playing about in the kitchen plenty :whistling:

With a decent knife, cutting even an onion .. a beef tomotoe etc... awesome. one has to try it, feel it, to understand it. Cuts can be made much thinner, smoother, effortlessly .. faster. But careful ... if its sharp .. it;ll stay sharp for way long. The wife learnt early ... many plasters due to this hehe. I keep mine in the cheapo plastic sleave it came in just because of that reason.

BTW, while we're on the topic .. can we start a campain to ban all glass cutting boards ... evil things. Funny enough, I just got back from a trip to Wales where the self catering unit had a Sabatier knife set block. But blunt as **** ... why? Probably cause they only had a glass cutting board I suspect.. Luckily I had my Lansky knife sharpener at hand ... it helped but not immensely due to the glass board killing the edge :x

It was the worst cutting experience ever .... erm ... no, make that 2nd... 1st still has to be cutting a good friends hair in the African bush with a bread knife as that is all we had to work with at the time

My suggestion .. go spend a little more on 1 knife... I can recommend Victorinox as its the most expensive quality one I've bought so far. No regrets and very happy with it. If you're happy with the 1 then buy others as and when you need them. From the forums reviewed, it seems most chefs only use 3 knifes in general so no need for a whole block of ones you wont use.

But, do some research yourself... will be interesting what you find :roll:

I have read as far down as this post and will the rest after I have posted this, but I just have to laugh at how times change.

If you look at the link and then scroll down to the specs of the knives you will see that it is listed as "DESIGNED in Sheffield."

Now I find that very funny. Far from the days when you could say "Manufactured in Sheffield using Sheffield steel!"

Designed in Sheffield, lol that is funny, can I ask if they were designed in my cousins bedroom in Sheffield?

I know that (I spent 15 years in catering). I was just pointing out that unlike some brand names the Sabatier name doesn't always guarantee quality as loads of different companies use the name.

This site looks like a decent price, £15.99 + a free little knife:
http://www.kitchenknivesdirect.co.uk/acatalog/Fibrox_Handles_.html
Victorinox Cooks Knife 5.2003
Cook's/Chef's Knife as recommended by Which? Magazine. Also recommended by Metro and Good Housekeeping Magazine.
12cm, 15cm, 19cm, 22cm, 25cm, 28cm & 31cm blade lengths available

SPECIAL OFFER- Receive a Victorinox 5.0603 paring knife usually £3.50, FREE with 15cm, 19cm, 22cm & 25cm sizes of the 5.2003 cooks knife

I got the 19" blade from a hardware store in some high street, I paid £18.99 I think it was.

You may get a better price at other sites perhaps ... but I'd recommend going into a store and having a feel of it. Also you may prefer a longer blade. Or different style even... I do like the Fibrox handle on it too.
#36
FWIW, I went with Good Housekeeping's suggestion on a Victorinox Bread Knife.
They compared, grip on the handles, dishwashing safeness (does it brown on the blade etc)
Cutting ability. etc

I absolutely love this bread knife. It cuts the bread likes it butter!

Can recommend the Victorinox Bread Knife for sure.
#37
Unexpired as still available
#38
I know these knives are very good quality, but you still need to look after them. So i suggest buying a good steel to keep them sharp.

Agreed, a friend of mine bought this set, is pretty decent quality, specially for the price.
Personally I use a ceramic sharpener on my knives. Not the best method for cooking I know as they blunt quicker. But boy are they sharp... can shave with them if you wanted to :lol:
