I like that they come with the plastic sheaths to keep your fingers safe in the knife drawer. Now If only I could keep my fingers safe on the cutting board...

These are really swell knives, I had no problem cutting through pineapple, watermelon, avocado and a technician's finger. All sliced like butter.

The only problem I have with this set is that you have to hold it up against the light to see if it's dirty.

These are really great knives for the price. I was surprised with my prior set. I bought them for my rental cabin because they were cheap and so unusual, that I thought no one would "accidentally" take them home.Other cheaper knives won't cut a thing. These have started out nice and sharp.

I kind of have to laugh that there are still people waiting on their orders, from the last time this was offered. Don't enjoy being a downer, but shouldn't those guys get first dibs on the new shipment?

As for the knives, while they might be sharp, I will share the other concerns about the pattern and having that get chipped. Unless these are only for fruits, which a tech finger isn't, then it seems like a bad idea. Granted I might be a bit more generous with my money if there was a better pattern instead of what they have.

I'll concur with that.

But alas, by the looks of Woot's offerings these days, we'll all have to make do with Amazon's garbage.

Edit: Can we all agree that the state that turns brightest orange on the "Woot by State" map is officially the tackiest state in the union?

From the reviews that I've read, I'm sure that these are great knives, but I can't get past the animal prints. It seems to me like something you'd see the so-called "Real Housewives" use on their so-called "reality" show.

I guess I'm a tacky person- I love the zebra print. I got the four piece set of these knives during a woot off a couple of months ago, and they're my favorite knives now. Just ordered this set to add to the collection, and I hope the four piece comes back around again so I can grab one more. They really are great.

Best Valentine's Day present this year. I got the Red Polka Dot version of these knives for my lady. She needed new knives anyway and isn't super picky about quality like me, these will do perfectly; and they are certainly good enough, being Kuhn Rikon. At this price...it's a no-brainer.

These are surprisingly sharp, and would cut through soft tomatoes without any issue. And I know good knives, I use Shun and Berghoff personally at home. Not comparable in terms of build-quality (the handle is low-cost plastic, but no, it doesn't slip), but for the price, it's a phenomenal deal. After two months' of everyday cooking, there is no chipping either, not on the knife, not on the patterns.

I'm so tempted to buy 3 sets. Then I can make 3 sets which each have all one item in each style.

Now I just need to figure out which 2 of my crazy friends should get these as future gifts.

Wonder if the vegetarian would freak out or laugh?

Okay, yeah, I did it and bought a set of each. I totally treat my knives like pets anyway...just so long as none of them actually sprout fur, because ew!

These might be some of the cheapest in the stable, but whatever. They'll be great to take anywhere I'm afraid of loosing them (camping, potlucks, caroling...) because at least when I look at someone murderously and say "HEY, THAT'S MY KNIFE!" they'll have trouble disputing that they also have the same tacky but unique taste I do. (Unless they're also wooters...because well, then tacky taste tends to stick...)

they sell these in Marshalls and TJMAxx for next to nothing, different colors and patterns, and ones without patterns. They are decent knives, as good as a Farberware or Kitchen Aid brand.
Defnitely not as good as a Wustoff or Henckel real german knives.

I'd buy these in a heartbeat if they didn't have that ridiculous pattern on them. I bet it gets in the way of telling if the knife dirty or chipped.

I love these knives!! They look good and cut good. Only downside is often reminding the kids they are not toys!

That's a good point...no pun intended. These look like toys. And they are definitely NOT toys. I bought a set and kept them on my counter - they really are pretty. My grandkids spotted them right away and now I put them in a cabinet.

In answer to the question- "Can a knife be ugly?" Yes! Yes it can.

I like to paint my knives like muppets and hang them from strings in the gameroom. (I wish they had a woot! on band-aids)

DANGER DANGER Will Robinson!!!!

Wooted the 4 RK knife set the first time. Besides the handles being a very cheap glossy plastic, they are very slippery and poorly designed. On the paring knife and smaller knife your hand could slip very easily forward on the blade. The handle shape is not safe, and the blades on the smaller knives are the same size as the handles. I have compared these to other cheap knives and better quality knives. So extreme caution is needed.
Otherwise, these are a novelty item and the novelty quickly wears off.

The sharpness of the blade really isn't the problem, it's the steel holding that pattern. Consider these blades for light usage only (stealing souls should be fine) but anything heavier will create ugly wear patterns. Ours in pink only lasted about 2 years before usage took its toll on the coating.

Bought these a couple months ago, I'm very happy with them, don't use the 2 smaller knives very much but love the larger ones, I actually prefer them over my "good" knives, hey, they're only $15.00 bucks I don't expect them to last forever!

I bought these a couple of months ago and am very pleased with the purchase. Just remember to go into it with the right expectations. These will be sharp, decent knives that will cut things easily and look cute. They will not be knives that you lovingly sharpen, use forever, and pass on to your grandchildren.

I got a set of Farberware, similar to this set but in solid colors. Even though they look like better quality knives, with a nicer handle to begin with, they are mediocre at best when it comes to slicing. My polka dot knives with their cheap looking handle do an awesome job. I don't like the looks of the animal print ones but I'd definitely recommend in terms of performance and value.

I LOVE these knives! I got the Red Dot ones a while back


The handles seems like it could get slick, if your hands are wet/oiled, but I've never had a problem. I tend to be extra cautious when it comes to knives in general though. So be careful if your accident prone.

I did not hesitate to get this set. Just wish they had the zebra print in stock on the set I bought, or had the red dots today - then it would match what I got today. But I'm just glad to get the cleaver of this style.

Don't worry, they say that it will wear off anyway! As for showing dirt, for some, it'll cut down on washing... ewwww.

I love these knives!! I was hesitant at first but the price was right!! They cut great and feel wonderful. I love the plastic sheaves that also come with them.. I might buy more of these as gifts!

I always hated "country cow"-themed kitchen. These will go perfectly with the jungle-theme I've been planning instead. Now to find a zebra pelt to use as a rug under my dining table, bambi's dad's head for wall decoration, and real ivory drawer pulls.

Now to wait patiently for the matching giraffe-print toaster and Ninja blender to show up here..

To those who already own theae: Are the plastic sheaths opaque enough to hide the design?

ordered the previous iteration, the red polka dots. they are the best knives i have ever had. super sharp, and the print does not chip or fade (i wash by hand, but the instructions said that you can put in dishwasher). highly recommend this

I got these knives in griaffe and I got the other set that was offered in zebra. I *really* like them!! Previously there were some comments about the handles being cheap or slippery, but I have not found this to be a problem. I like this set because of the individual covers. I'm not sure if I will ever get around to using that mini cleaver though. It is very small and I can't figure out the best use for it.

The giraffe would match the color I just painted my walls in the kitchen. I am going to get the Giraffe set.
