Sabatier ChefStar Stainless Steel KnifeAlthough available at bargain prices, this 14 piece knife block set is not a great value. It's more sensible to spend the same amount on one or possibly two very serviceable knives rather than a set of 14 that disappoints. Even if the price tempts you, consider that if you go to the dollar store you can buy these knives (or their equivalents) for a buck apiece, in the assortment you actually need.

Made in China and marketed under the Sabatier brand name, both knives and block have a poor reputation with users. Although stamped stainless steel knives can be good knives today, these are the sort that gave stamped stainless steel a bad name. The synthetic molded handles do not maintain gap free construction under heavy use; and these "high carbon stainless steel" blades are definitely not corrosion resistant, rusting even after hand washing.

The block itself shows sloppy construction and poor finish. Even though you get a lot of stuff when you buy this set--a knife block, kitchen shears, sharpening steel, chef's knife, bread knife, slicer, utility and paring knife, and six steak knives--you can certainly do better. Expect to replace it soon, if it's the best you can afford right now.

Check out Forschner Knives by Victorinox instead if you're looking for great, inexpensive knives.
