I've been a professional chef for 20 years, everything from 5-star 4-diamond dining to fast food. I've used many a knife, never actually owned my own until my son got me the Forged in Fire set. I was looking at more expensive knives, figuring that's what I need for the pro kitchen. I was very skeptical when these knives showed up wrapped in plastic like a matchbox car, but I gave them a chance, and I'm glad I did. It's been about three, maybe four weeks, I've used them every day, and yet to sharpen them. I've dropped the chef knife just yesterday and it survived without a scratch. I actually look forward to going to work just to use these knives, and at the price, I wouldn't tell a friend, I'd do what my son did and buy them a set. The ONLY downside is they don't come with a case or sheath to protect the blade when I'm not using them, I had to buy edge guards and a knife case for them.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
