* These do not feel cheap when you hold them in your hand. * The wood on the block that holds the knives is a nice and even color all throughout. * I am not a knife guru, but have used them for many years in the kitchen and at the table, I do like the serrated edges on the knives, even though many say they do not, I like this and I can see over many times sharpening them, they can become filed down, but I don't see that happening anytime soon, it may be a few years and when that happens, I will worry about that issue then. * For the price they are phenomenal, nothing else you will find will match the quality to the price. * I love the scissors that are on here, they are nice and multipurpose kitchen scissors. They are not meant for art work so they are a bit bulky, but not for the kitchen scissors as they are standard for the size and function. I like them a lot. For a company I usually associate with electronics, the Rosewill 18 Piece Stainless Steel knife set is a great product. The packaging was easy to open, the 3 pieces holding the handle on the knife blade is nice as I have had some of the handles split and then when looking it was only two pieces holding them together so if one fails in the front, watch out. These have 3 so they are spaced out and if all break at once then its a problem, but if the front, middle or back come off, then you have two solid ones still protecting you should this ever happen.
