Yes, they are micro serated blades. Is that not good?

Micro Serrated blades are usually not a good choice. They do that so they can claim they never need sharpening, but they are not even close to a good quality blade that is not micro serrated.

I am not familiar with these knives, but I hear the old adage "You get what you pay for" ringing in my ears.

13 knives for $30 shipped. That's cheap.

"How bad can they be?" you might ask yourself. Well, cheap knives can be really, really bad. Like you can't use them bad. And I am talking about $10 chef's knives. I bought my mom one and it could not even cut an onion. I took it bak (to Wal mart).

So I would caution you to find some really fantastic feedback on the knives before buying them.

And you should always try out knives before you buy them.

Good points everyone. Thanks for responding. Maybe I will wait for some knives. :)

One other thing - has anyone heard of those "Miracle Edge" knives? I know those are serated too - stay away from those too?

Using Chef Tony's "Miracle Blades" was like trying to cut something with a dough scraper.

They're useless. Sorry.

With the slight exception of the strange long one that looks like a swordfish's snout. That was better than useless. But I wouldn't spend my own money on one.

IMO save up some dough and buy 1 or 2 good knives. Not a set. Like a chef's knife and a paring knife. They are versatile and really all you need for most kitchen jobs.

Plus, if you do buy good knives and take care of them, you'll have them basically forever.

Sorry for sounding dumb, but there are several mentions of a chef's knife... I don't know what that means. Again, sorry for my ignorance.

Also, is there a certain name brand of knife that is preferred over another?

CHEF'S KNIFE. A versatile, utility knife, usually 6 to 10 inches long with a slightly curved blade. Used for chopping, mincing, dicing, slicing and most general kitchen work.

Here is the one I have

Check out the many other threads here on how to choose a knife. Just make sure you TRY it before you BUY it.
