I am so impressed with the quality of these knives. I've never owned such a good product. Just picking up any of the knives you can feel the difference in the weight. And so sharp. Will be ordering more without hesitation.

Teresa Seibert
The Essential knife Set

I received the essential knife set and absolutely enjoy my new Kilne knives. They are sharp and make chopping and slicing so much easier. The knives are crafted in such a way to provide the perfect weight when holding and chopping. Quality materials were used in these knives. This is my first expensive knife set and it looks great on the wall. The magnetic strip also holds the knives, the honing rod and the water knife sharpener. My knives are handy on the wall when preparing food. I am very pleased with all of the products that I have ordered from Kilne.
