Not worth the price

Pros:They are very sharp, but so are other quality kitchen knives.

Cons:No bolster. The handles are too long, They are too expensive.

I recently purchased a Gourmet Knife set from Cutco. I wanted a santoku-type knife so after the Cutco presentation I chose the Gourmet set. The "chopping knife" seemed the closest to a santoku and I wanted to try the others too. Once the knives arrived I immediately gave them a trial run. While prepping an onion I gave myself a very bad cut on the thumb. I have a set of Henckels 4-star knives and I keep them pretty sharp so I am used to working with quality knives. The Cutco chopper just did not work in my hand, the handle felt awkward and the lack of bolster caused the accident. I do not recommend these knives. In my opinion they are unbalanced, too sharp near the handle (no bolster) and too expensive. Once I had the knives at home for a while I noticed that they seemed rather lightweight and almost flimsy. I like a heavier knife that fits into my hand. I returned the Cutco knives and I'm waiting for the refund so I can buy another Henckels!
