How the Forever Sharp Knives Performed
I found the best use for the Forever Knife is for slicing bread evenly. Though you can slice tomatoes cleanly with it, this knife is rather long for this use. The serrated blade is not good for chopping or carving meat or poultry, so its use is rather limited. The filet knife's thin construction worked very well for deboning, for very thin slices of tomatoes, and for slicing and carving. The filet knife is actually the most versatile knife from this set. Paring knives are also sharp and worked well for small cutting tasks.
The blades of all these knives are extremely sharp. To reduce the risk of injury, knives should be stored in the cardboard sleeves they came in. Other than mild spotting; the blade finish is holding up well. These knives are not dishwasher-safe which is fine, because they're so sharp and thin, it's safer to wash them by hand. Handles are a resin composition, reasonably comfortable and non-slip unless wet.
As for durability, serrated blades though not impossible to sharpen, are very difficult even for an experienced person. The length and thinness of the blades makes them very flimsy and more susceptible to breakage. They are however, very sharp and are holding their edge.
The bottom line: If you're sharing - it's a good deal, otherwise their use is rather limited.
