I shouldn't have to speak to the quality of these knives, but they're absolutely perfect. They hold a good balance between razor sharp and durable. A few quick passes on the honing steel and they're back up to task.
The best part about the Pro series is the pinch-grip. Some of the other series have sharper transitions to the tang, but the Pros have the smooth taper which is comfortable for a good, strong pinch-grip that wont wear your fingers out.
The only problem is that now I need more of them since the rest of my knives are inadequate. Oh, and the block is made in China, but I guess that's nitpicking at this point. Regardless, it's a beautiful set of quality knives, and I hope to have these for many years to come.
