I should certain hope it's neato for $708.

Amazon.com: Deglon Meeting Knife Set, Stainless Steel Knives and Block, Set of 4: Kitchen & Dining

Trouble is, none of the reviews on the Amazon site are from people who actually have used the knives. It too much invites cute bogus reviews and comments.

One person observed that Deglon also makes steel finger guards, no doubt with this set in mind.

This was a topic a few months ago right here in the forum. This knife set was soundly shot down then IIRC.

I think if you dig into it you'll discover that the artistic ideas far surpass any culinary relevance.

I think of these knives more as art than as kitchen utensils. They would be great to furnish a "show" kitchen that somebody never uses.

Oh, for sure. That would absolutely only be for show. I wonder if they do other colours? Chemically coloured steel can be very interesting looking.

We probably have that much, if not more, in retail, tied up in our knives. Granted we bought most at a "Going out of business sale" with upto 40% off. The first thing I see that would concern me is the total difference in butt/haft design of each knife. The series of knives we bought all have the same design, butt/haft. Personally, that would prevent me from purchasing them, regardless.

Regarding the price tag on anything, I'd much rather pay a premium for quality that will last, then keep buying cheap that has to continually be replaced. Doing the latter usually ends up costing more in the long run.

They are neat looking. I am not sure if they are practical, but I would probably loose a finger trying to get them apart.
