J.A. Henckels International Forged Synergy 13-Piece Knife Set
The Henckels International Forged Synergy Knife Block Set is a great place to start for a first time set. With these forged synergy knives, you will never have to worry about them rusting or staining. The handles are designed with POM handles and made for a comfortable grip. The set comes with one of each of a paring, serrated, Santoku and chef's Knife. It also has a 9 inch sharpening steel with a stainless steel handle, six stamped steak knives, Kitchen Shears and a hardwood knife block. These knives give you everything need to get cooking. These knives didn't make it as my number one pick because they dull easily and require sharpening after a couple of uses. That said, they are still an awesome set at a great price.
