You can never have to many knives in your kitchen. I am in love with this set. The knives are easy to handle and comfortable. They are sharp enough and last awhile. You get 1 carving, 1 paring, 1 serrated, 1 utility and 1 chef knife in this set. You also get a knife block to hold the knives in. These would make a great wedding or a home warming gift. They are super easy to clean and take care of. The knife blades are made from stainless steel. I received this product free in exchange for my honest review.
