What reviewers didn't like

Difficult to sharpen.
Relatively short blades.
The handles are a little small especially if you're used to wooden ones.
They look and feel a bit thin all around. The balance of the knife in the hand is not great.
Even though it is marketed as dishwasher safe by the manufacturer, hand washing is still recommended. After several washes in dishwasher, there are some complaints that the handles are affected very much.
Come with thinner blades.
Come wіth thіnnеr serrated blade.
Labeled dishwasher safe, but better if hand washed.
Knives are lighter and thinner than many other steak knives
Tips of the blade may be a bit fragile.
One small downside, though, is that the handle is a dulled silver finish which doesn’t exactly match the blade.
