Overall, others give this:
I wanted a knife set that didn't look too cheap, but wasn't too expensive since weekly renters tend to take things outside and lose them. This set was as expected for the money and so far no complaints.

I love this cutlery set. The only thing is there is not a sharpener on this set. The sale price I picked these up for though left room to buy a shapener when the time comes. Each knife is made with greta craftsmanship and easy to cut right out of the box. I was so happy to get a great set of knifes!
I had been shopping around for a new knife set and caught a Black Friday deal that I couldn't resist. Very pleased with my purchase. The block looks sharp on my counter & so far the knives have worked out great. I hand wash and dry and haven't noticed any "rust" that others have mentioned. Good selection, too!
I bought this cutlery set on black Friday and paid less than 15 dollars for them. I was a little worried about the quality since I paid so little for them but I figured if I didn't like them, it wouldn't be so bad because of how little I paid for them. however I loved them. they are so sharp and work amazing. they are very good quality and I would have definitely paid full price for this product.
For starters I was looking for a new knife set because my old one did not have a space for scissors. When I started looking for a new knife set with a wooden block I was taken back by the cost of some of them, or the lack of quality confirmed through unhappy customer reviews. But the Chicago Cutlery 15pc set not only had great reviews, it had a slot for scissors and the blade goes through the entire handle. The full hilt blade is very important when it comes to a knife set. If it is not the handle will eventually make break apart from the blade and cause injury. No worrying about that with this knife set and it looks great in my kitchen to boot!
I have worked in restaurant for about 20 years, so when it comes to knives, I'm pretty picky. I needed to replace the set I had, so when I saw these on Black Friday, I knew it was time. I don't regret buying this knife set, knives are sharp and the wood block looks great on my counter top.

I bought these as a gift for someone and they like them very much. These were a good value for the money and had all the features I was looking for when making this purchase. Good quality product at a good price.

About six months ago, I purchased this set of knives for use at our cabin up north. As the title to this review says, these are really decent knives and at the price, especially when they go on sale, it would be hard to find a better set of knives. The wooden block is solid wood, not a cheap pieced together 'block' that I've been seeing lately. The knives are heavy enough to make me feel safe that it won't slip out of my hands when I'm cutting through a substantial piece of meat. The six steak knives did not impress me when I first looked at them because they are not serrated, but they glided right through 1.5" thick porterhouses without any problem whatsoever--I was very pleasantly surprised! The only negative thing that I can come up with is that they are not the best looking knives in the world, but I don't care because they do the jobs that they were made to do very well. 5 stars easy.
I needed to replace some old knives that were in our kitchen, and decided to buy these knives. While they are not top of the line knives, they are good for the price I paid. They feel comfortable to hold and relatively well balanced. I would have loved to see them forged instead of stamped, but for the price I understand why they are only stamped. So far (after about a half a year of use) they have been holding their edges well.

I got this for my sister as a housewarming gift. And they loved it! I hear them mention it everytime I call them now! This was by far one of the best last minute gifts I have ever given spur of the moment! Especially since I live in Wisconsin and she lives in Hawaii, the buy online pick up in store option was the most conveniant to save on shipping and so she was able to pick it up the next day after work!
I really needed new knives and I heard that Chicago Cutlery was the best brand so I swooped in around Black Friday time and got this set for 20 bucks! I love these knives but the bigger blades weren't very sharp in my opinion. I used to be a cook and got to work with some very nice knives and I would say all but two of the knives lived up to my standards.

Before purchasing this set of Chicago Cutlery knives, I had dull knives that were not very efficient. I have had this knife set for three years now and they are still very sharp. I would recommend this to a friend.
I use these knives as a everyday set. They are good knives and I am glad to have them. As with all knives, if left sitting in water they will be damaged. They clean up nicely and feel nice to hold. I would recommend them.
