Was tempted but some reviews saying they soon go blunt.



I've had this set for over two years. They were razor sharp when i got them and let's just say, i still wouldn't put them in the washing up bowl to soak with the other cutlery for fear of losing a couple of fingers when putting a hand in there. As with all knives, it's important to look after them. Avoid cutting on hard surfaces, glass, stone etc. and sharpen regularly. Some say after 2 uses but i've found that once a month is perfectly adequate.

Yup they do, I have the 3-set and regularly use the chef knife for cutting meat and veg (for about 2 years). It did meat easily before but now it's a bit of a struggle, sharpening them gradually gets less effective but I chalked that down to the nature of knives themselves just being thin steel. They're decent quality IMO but nothing outstanding.

I started using a cleaver though, once you get used to the heft, it makes chopping things so much easier but it is a bit more scary. One slip and...

What do you use as a knife sharpener? Thinking about getting these for my folks - all they ever do is moan about every single knife they have but keep buying cheap ones and wonder why lol. I use globals and made a small collection over the years and they've been superb as, like you say, if you look after them and wash by hand and never in a dishwasher, they'll stay sharp
Teflon knives are nothing but a gimmick IMHO.

And these come from Joseph Joseph, the guys who brought you the glass chopping board.
Joseph Joseph, for those who want to overpay for style over substance.

Had these and binned them after 6 months, currently trying procook ones which seem miles better
Great for Roadmen on endz

Nooooooo don't do it!
You can make any knife 'sharp' but you depending on the type of knife and what you use it for you may actually want to have it to less or more sharp. Things like the angle you sharpen a knife at will affect how long it'll stay sharp for too as well as the composition of the metal itself and the treatment to it after with manufacturing.

Most of what I know about knife care is taken from my years as a chef, currently I work in a sushi restaurant and the way I'd sharpen my Yanagiba for cutting slices of fish is very different to how I'd sharpen a classic chef's knife for cutting vegetables.

I personally use whetstones and will sometimes use a leather strop but for most people looking to buy knives like this I'd probably avoid telling them to use a whetstone to sharpen as they can take a fair bit of time to get used to working with one(keeping consistent angles to avoid blunt spots and following the knifes profile and even different techniques for using one).

For anyone that's just looking for a home knife set like this one then sharpening about once a month with regular use should be fine, even using a pull through knife sharpener should be enough for most people looking to just cut through veg/meat.

My family are chinese so my first introduction to a 'kitchen/home' knife was actually a chinese 'cleaver' style knife. I remember as a young kid being made to cut through a cauldron of chicken wings with a thicker cleaver(thicker blade is better for bones as it is less likely to chip). The weight of them really does make you ache after a while!

But with proper knife technique you shouldn't ever(in theory ) be able to cut any digits off...
