Inherited the butcher knife after my grandmother passed and knew it was used to process elk for hunts in Michigan. This one is old no markings on it and the is worn from use but ... as a chef of 16 years these knives are the best ever my coworkers all have Shuns and yes those are quality, nothing beats old world craftsmanship and old fashioned carbon steel, yes you have to care for them , it is worth it , fine quality heirloom blades

The knives are excellent. Te reason for only 4 stars is I expected the box to be something the knives would be stored in. Turns out the box is just the shipping container and the knives are plastic sealed on a piece of cardboard. It would have been cheaper to order the knives separately.

I've had a very old incomplete set of these knives for years that I like so much I decided it was time to invest in a full set. The problem is, they arrived with such terrible edges that we've got to re-grind them before we can even use them! If I had the option of returning them, I would have. But I'm hoping that after the extra initial investment of time, they will be as reliable as my old knives.

My husband loves these knives. He's the cook in the family and was always complaining that we didn't have any decent knives. Well now he's got a full set and the kit to keep them clean and sharp. If he knew what a great deal I got on them he would be even more impressed.

I have some of these knives in use daily for more than 50 years. Original wood, no chips or cracks. Hank washed, of course.

I used to have Old Hickory Knives years ago. These are great. I don't mind sharpening them. They were shipped out in a timely matter and I like the knives. Thank you.

People seem so scared of these. Take care of them, sharpen them often and carefully, and they will last a lifetime. I hope to give these to my grandaughter.

I love my knives! Useful, easy to sharpen at home, so sharp, and a killer price. I would love to buy a set for everyone in my family. But remember, they are steel... Dry imeadiatly and put away to keep looking good!
