Robert Welch Signature Knife Block Sharpener and 6 Knives 5 "The ultimate set of knives" 09 February 2019 Purchased this set of knives to replace the sabatier ones I purchased about 12 years ago. Ok they were expensive but they will last my lifetime. These are the best knives ever, so easy to handle, great shape to hold. They are very very sharp so you have to take care using them at first. The block looks attractive and the sharpener in the centre is a great idea. I haven’t put them in the dishwasher yet so cannot comment on that, but they are very easily hand washed.
