Pros:Sleek attractive set, never needs sharpening
Cons:They rust easily
The Bottom Line: If priceis your object then buy. If you can spend a little more, go for the traditional set.
Everyone needs a good knife set. Cheap knives are more of a danger to the user than anything else. Unless they stay sharp and are balanced the knife can slip and cause a cut.

I have had my Chicago Cutlery set for over twenty years. I bought the Walnut Set.... one piece at a time and I have been happy with it...no complaints.
When my daughter got her first apartment, I bought her the Chicago Cutlery Essentials Knife Set because it was what it said it was: Essential...it came with a chef's knife, serrated bread knife, paring knife, slicer, and boner. I paid about $40.00. This set is NOT the same as the Chicago Cutlery walnut pieces. These have rusted where the blade meets the handle. I have never had that problem with my set. On the up side, this set seems well balanced and stays sharp. I do wonder about knives that never seem to need sharpening because it usually means a thinner blade and it just isn't as good as one which needs sharpening. My knives get dull but a few swipes with a sharpener and they are good to go.
My daughter likes her set better than mine because she likes the sleek look and cherry finish. She thinks my set is ugle which is true but they are very traditional and I wouldn't trade my set for hers because mine don't rust.
The name Chicago Cutlery is a good name and I still recommend the cheaper set although if you are going to invest in a knife set, spend the extra dollars and buy the traditional set. I think they are better knives.
