I did hours upon hours of research on knives. Different types, different metals, different blades, etc. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but didn't want more cheap knives either.
X50 CrMov 15 (Chrome Molybdenum Vanadium) is a widely used decent German metal for knives. It's not the best, but it's up there when it comes to knife metal. It has a good rockwell hardness of about 56. Not as hard as Janapese blades, but then, not as expensive as decent Japanese blades. And not as hard to resharpen as harder steels. The whole "Sabatier" thing though...although not a brand name, a lot of knife manufacturers just use the name as it's respected name for top quality French metal workmanship, the name has been somewhat watered down with use. The Richardson Sheffield name is well respected, has been around making knives a long time, so they know what they're doing.

So bottom line...are these knifes sharp? Yes they most certainly are. I've got the cut fingers to prove it. Which I must say, I've struggled to re-teach myself proper cutting techniques from youtube videos because these knives will leave a good gash with the slightest pressure. I sharpen lightly before every use. You don't need much, just a few sweeps each side on the steel. The bread knife is excellent. The general utility knife is a very good most used knife. And the carving knife is just sublime. The carving fork that comes with this set is useful too.
Although it says dishwasher safe, and although X50 CrMov also has good corrosion resistance, I highly recommend you do not wash in a dishwasher, they will rust. Wash and wipe your knives dry after use.

So why only 4 stars? The handles are a bit blocky/chunky. Not hard to use, just the same classic handle design seen on knives for many many years, just not that elegant these days. If you've big chef hands - not a problem. Also, the sharpening steel is a bit too short. Luckily I already have a longer steel bought from Amazon. See my reviews if you want to know which one I bought.
So do you need a nine piece knife set for everyday cookng? Probably not. There really is a knife for every purpose with this set. I mostly use the same 4 knives. But damn does this set look good on the kitchen counter! :)
As for the free frother...well it's in the drawer, hasn't been used. Looks cheap and tacky. But still, it was free!

This was intended to be a rpacement for a sabatier knife we had had for upwards of 25 years and loved dearly as it sharpened beautifully and was elegant, slim and esy to use

Unfortunatley,the tip bagan to wear away so it began to be fragile.

We measured the length and got the nearest we could find.

but (and it is a big but) it is very wide so resembles something more like a cleaver than an ordinary knife for domestic use

will persevere as hate wasting money but, at the moment, it is very hard to manipulate for any kind of fine chopping.

It was out of stock at our nearest supplier so we did not have a chance to see and feel before we bought but would urge people not to make the same silli mistake.

Good value for money and good quality. I have never had such sharp knives in my life and it's easy to keep them that way with just a few strokes on the sharpening steel on a regular basis. I have been using them a few months now and no negatives so far. All the knives in the set are useful for different jobs and get used on a regular basis. Overall they are great, look stylish and durable, full tang definitely a bonus. I had a lot of hesitation buying them due to varying reviews. I wanted to invest wisely in a set of knives for life and have no regrets, very happy with this purchase.

Confusing defining what exact brand of Sabatier knives these are (They aren't truly what I imagined 'Sabatier' would be -ie French knives made in France; these are English knives made to a French style by a Dutch-owned company) but I ordered them anyway and I am not disappointed. They are very well made and sharp - nicely weighted and with decent handles- very good to use. The knife block isn't up to the same standard and doesn't seem to fit all the knives that well but it's good enough and was effectively a free gift.
I wouldn't put these knives in the dishwasher (even though it says you can), they are easy enough to wipe clean.

Bought these as a gift for my avid chef-wannabe mother, came out of the box very very sharp and has a tool for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. They seem like very good quality knives and the steel used seems to be strong, slightly flexible on longer blades and tales and holds an edge well. Great starter into the world of pro chef knives or just an awesome set of slicers!

Excellent boning knife - strong and flexible, with a razor edge. Well riveted handle makes it comfortable and secure to hold in use. It is also easy to clean and sharpen too. Very pleased with this and would recommend.

Brilliant bread knife, it is very sharp and well balanced with a good solid handle. It actually makes an excellent general use carving knife too. I wish that I had discovered these knives years ago, you just can't beat knives that have a solid tang and through riveted handle.

I was very pleased to buy this set as a gift for professional use. A very good value set which will last many years if my own experience with Sabatier is matched. This is a very good price for high grade tools. Personally a roll would have been better but in a domestic situation the block is a bonus a pro wouldn't need.
