This set is not decent enough for home use whatsoever. Had bought this set a few years back and the blades would not cut straight or properly at all, to wasted time with several blocks of different gradient I still couldn't sharpen these to any proper standard.

The other half had bought these last year for just a quick use without me knowing while we unpacked so we had some knives. They were just as bad absolutely awful! Please for the love of god if you value not only your food but your fingers spend that extra more and just get some decent ones. I had bought a russell hobbs set which had blunted out a little after heavy use over months but with a block had sharpened them all within minutes - Take care of your knives... I'm by far no means a chef but I enjoy cooking.

The phrase you get what you pay for with these will net you in A&E within a few weeks. The block itself wasn't half bad better with some stain or painted with a clear coat ontop but chuck the knives. (With responsibility of course, Saving your own fingers but then landing one in your neighbours head still wont go down well)
Had these broke when I was chopping carrots cut my hand open.
These are good for throw away knives if you aren't planning on using them on food, voted hot
Had these for two years and although I don't use them daily, have never had a problem with them and certainly never ended up in A&E because of them. Maybe if you want something that you will use frequently, then of course you shouldn't be looking at these in the first place.
Sharp deal
Bought and threw away within a week.
They don't cut properly at all... Returned the very next day
Like others have said, the knives are rubbish. Keep the block, bin the knives after you've sworn at them a few times... like I did.
Don’t buy cheap knives, if you want a a decent cheap knife buy a Victorinox paring knife for £5 a decent Chef knife and a bread knife and it’s all you’ll ever need. You can go to TKMaxx and get yourself a decent Sabatier for a very reasonable price.

You’ll pay £5 for this but getting rid of them is a nightmare, you’d pay someone £5 to take them off your hands.
Ideal for doing an Anna Windass. Heat added 😡🔪

Not everyone who clicks hot or cold bothers to comment.

Temperature of a deal does not in any way equate to number of comments on a given deal.
Voted cold due to honest reviews been posted
Worth if fr the. Seems throwing away the knives is the best option
