I love that the blade and handle are one solid piece. They are also very easy to clean. They are the sharpest, lightest weight, comfortable handle knives I’ve ever owned. I have had them for months now and still have yet to need the sharpener. Of course I’m glad it’s there for future use. I hand wash them and dry immediately and they still look brand new! No water spots or discoloration. Got them for the same price as Walmart, with free Amazon.com shipping and I never had to leave home.
