" ...  The finish on the wood isnt quite there. ... The black handled set has a nice smooth handle but the wooden handles have a little snag as the metal runs down the back of the handle. ... It isn't so much I notice it when using the knife so I'm keeping the set. ... Plus I want 2 different sets for when the knife fight starts after dinner.  ...  "
