The 15-piece set includes: 8-inch chef's knife, 8-inch slicer knife, 8-inch bread knife, 6-inch cleaver, 5-inch utility knife, 3-1/4 inch parer knife, six 4-1/4 inch steak knives, 8-inch sharpening steel, and kitchen shears with bottle opener. All components are kept neat and organized in an attractive black storage block.
A few of my favorite tools are as follows: the chef knife is a great tool for the everyday stuff - chopping, slicing vegetables, and mincing garlic. You can slice up some fresh bread with the bread knife - or use it to cut tomatos and steaks with ease. The cleaver can be used to terrify your friends and family - or to cut through bones and sinew ( piece of tough fibrous tissue uniting muscle to bone or bone to bone; a tendon or ligament.). The kitchen shears will come in handy whether you are cutting herbs or clipping coupons and the sharpening steel will keep everything in tip top condition - if you didn't know a sharp knife is a safe knife!
I have used Farberware® knives and have several in my knife collection and they really are not that bad - these knives will keep a pretty sharp edge and with some regular maintenance should last a long time (maybe even a lifetime). This little set would also make a really sharp gift for the upcoming holiday season and would be appreciated by any home cook or professional chef.
This little set is also pretty attractive and will indicate to your guests (or those of your gift recipients) that this fancy set was pretty costly - but little do they know you got a pretty sweet deal on the whole lot. With all of these professional tools - you might even be able to start your own cooking show and rocket to culinary superstardom! Look out Emeril!
