Great hard steel.

published

I absolutely love my knifes and yes I got them from king of knifes closing down sale. Now for a novice I can understand the comments here. They are a knife that is really hard steel thus making them a bit of a crap to get the first sharpening good I got rid of the steel that comes with it and got a diamond steel and it works a treat had them for years and expect to continue loving them for years to come.

Purchased in August 2012 at Auto King for $299.00.

Stay away

published

I got this a couple of months ago as my main knife set for my kitchen. During the first couple of days, the knives worked great. They were very sharp. However, after a while, the knives that I regularly used started losing their edge very quickly. I then had them sharpened but after about a week, they became dull again. Based on the other reviews here, it seems I'm not the only one who encountered this problem. I have already discarded the Bismarck knives and replacement them with a new set from a different company.

I too was suckered on 21 knife block at half price of $800 from King of Knives

published

I bought these knives many years ago and regret my purchase every time I use them.
They don't hold an edge for a reasonable period, i know how to use a steel and have bought sharpener to keep them sharp, but have to sharpen before every use.
I never really checked weight but should have, too light. The kitchen scissors are atrocious. Wish a had bought 4 or 5 of the better known German Brands e.g. Wusthof. They are nicely balanced though.

They only look good

published

Bought this set of knives at "The knives Shop" Chermside and also purchased a very expensive electric knives sharpener. I can't wait till get rid of them as they always go blunt a week after been sharpened. As I said before they only look good but... poor quality steel Mr Bismarck!!

Great set of knives

published

The steel does a great job of keeping them sharp. Well balanced. Used daily in a semi professional manner and very pleased. Surprised that there are negative reviews as I've tried many others and these are great!

Keep on keeping on.

published

Bought mine on special from King of Knives a few years ago and have had no trouble keeping an edge on them. No rusting either. The largest knife is a little heavy but then again I like that in a knife.

Best hunting knife ever!!

published

I had Bizmark knifes of Deloraine Tasmania make me a huntining knife and haven't looked back!! I can't fault it and it holds an edge like no other knife I've owned before!! I have skun out over 60 too and wallaby before it needs resharpening!! He will make any knife you want from the highest quality steel and wood!!

Crap

published

After my recent review of these knives (AdrianF) have had the large knife snap at the handle while trying to cut a pumpkin, only just managed to get my bare foot out of the way of falling knife. Bismark won't answer emails concerning this.

Disappointing

published

They look the part but the Birsmarck block set of knives has proven to be a dud. Very quick to lose their edge, difficult to keep sharp, rust forming around the handle and blade join, and the blade on one of the smaller knives recently broke clean off the handle. Rubbiish. Don't touch them with a barge pole (which arguably would be just as good at cutting after one of these knives after moderate use).

Excellent! Great Knives

published

I purchase these knives 18 months ago from king of knives. These knives are still as sharp as the day I bought them with out any honing being done to them. They have stood up to my wife's harsh knife skills. The weight in them is great for cutting through hard objects such as frozen meat and pumpkin. I would recommend Bismark Knives to anyone. Well priced kitchen knives, great for domestic use.
Great sharp edge that last. Good price

I have no problems

published

I purchased a set of Bismark Knives from King of Knives and the girl seemed friendly and helpful and told myself and my sister she was a chef and that the Bismarck were a good brand. So I took them home and tried them out. I haven't had a problem since! The only drawback I'd day is that they are a heavy knife.

Lies about Bismarck King of Knives

published

I bought a two Bismarck knives from King of Knives. The deciding factor was that I was told they were German. In fact when I unpacked them, I found that, Yes the steel is German but they are made in China.
They may still be OK but I am feeling ripped off

Made in China

They used to be made in Germany, however the factory has been moved to China.
Which King of Knives told you they were made in Germany?

We pop them in our dish washer and never had a problem. We just make sure that we sharpen them regularly and they cut well each time.
