One quality knife can cost as much, if not more, than this entire 15-piece set — and at $125, down from $345, you're saving over 60%. This is one of the best prices we've seen from this respected brand, and it has more than 12,000 five-star ratings to back it up.

The handles are perfectly curved to fit comfortably in your hand, and their exquisitely honed stainless steel blades let you precisely make even, paper-thin cuts with ease. The knives were designed to be incredibly lightweight and easy to clean, plus the blades are both stain- and rust-free so you can wash them by hand or throw them in the dishwasher without worry (though one reviewer noted the color of the handles fading).

Each set comes with an 8-inch chef's knife, bread knife, 7-inch santoku knife, 5-inch serrated utility knife, 3-inch paring knife and six steak knives. Plus, you'll also get a sharpening steel, a pair of kitchen shears and a stylish wooden block to store everything in.

Choppers — sorry, shoppers — say the set of solid, sharp knives actually makes cooking easier and even safer.

"Finally sharp (and safe) knives," said one. "I have been used to ordinary knives until my brother, who is a chef, convinced me to upgrade to Henckels. I must admit, I was a bit nervous at first, worrying about cutting myself, but the grip on these knives keeps my hands from slipping. They are extremely sharp and do a great job in the kitchen."

Another wrote, “These knives are easy to hold and are comfortable in your hand. ... They're by far the best knives I’ve ever used. They bring the quality, durability, comfort and versatility you would expect from a premium knife set."

"As food industry professional with a culinary degree, I would definitely recommend this set for home use," shared a kitchen expert. "These Henckels knives are the best set I've had for use at home ... They are sturdy, easy to hold and cut like a dream!"

A third reviewer noted that the set isn't exactly a space-saver. "The only downside is the block, which takes up a lot of room on the counter," they shared. That said, they called it a "great set of knives" and went on to say: "We use them every day. We like the weight of the handle and how easily they cut different foods."

As mentioned earlier, some users experienced difficulties when putting them in the dishwasher. "My only complaint is they are supposed to be dishwasher-safe," wrote a final fan. "The first couple times I used them, I washed them by hand. When I finally decided to put them in the dishwasher, the black on the handles faded. I would definitely recommend these, but I would NOT put them in the dishwasher."

Over 12,000 Amazon reviewers have given this knife set their five-star seal of approval, and you're gonna love it too.
