When I start searching for something new, I always look for reviews of the product online. This is exactly what I did when I deciding between a few kitchen knife sets. I was looking for something sharp and easy to work with as my family love their fish, poultry and bread. It’s easy to say that I also got bored with the wooden knife block I had.
I was actually attracted to the look of the rectangular tempered glass block knife set. The knife set I’m talking about is the Mercer Culinary Renaissance 6-Piece Forged Knife Block Set (Tempered Glass Block). After going through many impressive reviews from the users, I purchased this set. Now, all of these knives were extremely sharp out of the box.
These knives come with a taper-ground blade which is why I think my cutting speed has increased over the year. With the boning knife, I can now happily deboned my poultry and fish daily. The bread knife is also a blessing as my sandwiches are much more prettier than before. I have never thought I would find a knife that easily slices through a loaf of bread.
The Perfect Blade
If you’re wondering about the balance and weight of the knife, it is perfect. The handle is also comfortable to hold and even when my husband accidentally bumped into me, the knife did not slip out of my hand. Also, do not worry about rusting or discolouration. The blades are made out of a high-carbon no stain German Steel. I usually dry them after washing. In my honest opinion, the rest of the knives I got with this set is a bonus to my knife collection.
Until now, I still get compliments about how classy these knives look on my kitchen counter. I really recommend adding this knife set to your kitchen. Now, I’m much happier in the kitchen than before.
