As soon as I got the knives I tested them with slicing tomatoes. I was pleasantly surprised, the slicing knife easily sliced the ripe tomato effortlessly. I am pleased with the blades but I took a star off for the handles. Although a good shape, I expect a more solid construction. The handle seems to be cheap plastic. But I decided to keep them because of the blades.
So far I have used them twice and I just love them. They are nice and sharp when you get them. The reason I picked this set is because it had a chef's knife where other ones did not. I am very pleased and will update this post if my opinion changes.
