Anolon Advanced Knife Block Set This 15 piece set forged from German stainless steel contains only one knife that is questionably useful, and some people would use that. In addition to a full spectrum of kitchen prep knives, Anolon includes a set of six stainless steel steak knives, a pair of forged steel kitchen shears, a sharpening steel, and a high quality hardwood knife block with one extra slot, just in case.

The knife assortment includes an 8" Chef's Knife, 8" Hollow Ground Slicer, 8" Bread Knife, 7" Santoku, 5" Serrated Utility Knife, and 3.5" Paring Knife. Out of that lineup, the only one that seems unnecessary is the utility knife. That's an odd in-between style useful for cutting sandwiches, and the more I think about it the more it actually does make sense to have a serrated knife able to cut through hard crusted bread, cheese, meat, tomatoes and lettuce without crushing the entire structure of the meal.

The Chef's Knife and Santoku are by no means duplicate knives. The Chef's knife is built of thicker steel and able to tackle chores that might damage the edge of the graton style Santoku; the Santoku excels at slicing vegetables thinly and without scattering the pieces all over the kitchen. It's not a perfect solution to the slices that crawl up the side of the blade and roll away, but it helps.

The wrap around Santoprene handles are comfortable and durable, with a rubberized nonslip grip that users enjoy. The steel chosen for this set is highly stain resistant, but not stain proof--handwashing is recommended. The edge holding potential of this alloy isn't exceptional--it's easy to sharpen, but needs frequent touch up. As with many knives born of less than exotic steel, honing after every use is recommended.
