Beautiful Knifes

Really pleased with the quaility,balance and feel of these knifes, but it was their price for the set that swung it for me when compairing it it with a couple of Kai shun blades.

Very sharpe out of the box and retaining that edge for much longer than my previous set. No regrets at all with this purchase.

WOW....Best Knife set

WOW....Best Knife set I've owned.

Had the New York set now for about 9 months and can't fault it, and I'm picky! Tried Wusthof and Global but these larger companies products pale in comparison with the Naifu's.OK the damask finish may be just aesthetic but the core steel is sublime at sharpening and keeping an edge, and their sharpener actually works without being too abrasive.Every knife is a gem but my favourites are the sausage knife and the Santoku,a knife for all occasions.My first Santoku and I wonder how I managed fo 50 years.The handles are functionally large enough unlike some other makes and grippy enough to make them safe.They are about mid weight but you dont need a cleaver when the edge is soooo sharp and efficient.Be careful, I've had a couple of knicks when not paying attention.Price point-underpriced for what you get quality wise-but then you gain at the name not being 'global' (ouch!).All in all just about perfect.Buy before they get too well known.

Honestly these knives make me happy!

I am a trained cook and do all the cooking for my family (although I don't cook professionally any more) and am something of a knife freak. I've had Wusthoffs, Henkels, Sabatiers you name it.

But these knives which cost a fraction are without doubt the best knives I've ever owned.

They are beautifully balanced and a complete joy to use. The damascus steel is very satisfying to sharpen and so, consequently, I look forward to shredding cabbage, dicing onions, carving chickens (I like the small knife for this as well).

In short, when I have one of these knives in my hand and serious amount of veg to prep I'm happy!

A very nice set. Highly recommended

Now I'm not a serial reviewer, but when I was looking for a quality knife set I found the lack of reviews on this knife set a little worrying. I have therefore decided to pass on my experiences.

Firstly, I am not a professional chef, but got so fed up with old blunt knives I decided to splash out a little more.

I looked at the globals, Wusthofs, Henckels and some Japanese knife sets, but decided they were generally much too expensive.

My girlfriend pointed these out to me and I immediately liked the look of the blades and handles. The Damascus look is very pretty, though in reality I'm not sure it adds any functionality.

Being a bit of a geek I looked into them a little more and found they use a steel called VG-10. This appears to be a mainly Japanese steel which is reknowned for its edge retention and is regarded as a bit of a 'super steel'. When I looked at other VG-10 knife sets the prices went astronomical.

So, I took the plunge and bought the set. What can I say? they are extremely sharp and make food prep an absolute doddle. The enjoyment factor from using them is great enough, but I also raise a smile when I walk past them in the kitchen they are so pretty. I have been using them for about a month now and there appears to be no loss of sharpness. I suppose time will tell, but looking at other knives made from this steel I think they should be good for a long while. You also get a sharpener with it, which adds to the value even more.

If I had one criticism it would be that a Santoku knife isn't included in the set. To buy these seperately it is quite expensive. I would have rather paid a straight £300 for this set with the extra knife. All in all a small complaint and I will definately be buying that knife individually.

I think this is the best quality:value ratio set on the market right now.

Here at Naifu we have designed an elegant new steak and game knife made from fine chef quality knife steel. The handle is particularly comfortable and has excellent weight and balance.

I treated myself to a set of these knives when I saw a glowing review of them in The Times and I am so happy that I did. They look good, they are well balanced, they have a really comfortable grip but most importantly they are brilliantly sharp.

I never imagined that my new set of Naifu knives could give me such a new boost of enthusiasm for cooking and experimenting with different recipes! They are exceptionally sharp, well balanced and have a great grip which gives me confidence to use them at speed.

Hi
I recently bought a Tokyo set of knives from you. Just wanted to say what a fantastic set of knives they are and they fully live up to your description of them. Great value as well and I've only cut myself once!!

2013Simply put, the best knives I will ever own. I've had a few, used some of the very best and I'm more than happy to know I have a full set on par with them for well under a third of the cost for the same number.

I gave these to my son for his Christmas. He is a professional chef and wanted to try this brand. He has German knives which he rated but loves this Japanese steel. He finds the weight and balance right for him there is a good grip handle.

I have been looking to invest in a good knife set for some time and, having looked at many options in stores and reviews online, finally decided on this set through Amazon, in part based on the good feedback from other reviewers. I have not been disappointed!

Excellent knives, light to handle and very sharp, a pleasure to use in the kitchen, makes cooking that much more enjoyable. Decided to purchase a good set of knives afer slicing my finger with a cheap blunt knife. These knives cut where you want them to. Recommended.

I wish we'd bought these years ago. I've always liked the idea of good knives but been unimpressed by the price or the value. I came across reviews of these and bought on the strength of that. They are excellent and very good value for what they deliver.
