The Henckels International Solution series are precision stamped knives with lightweight, triple riveted polymer handles. They are very lightweight, and won't bear you down. The 15-piece set includes a 4" paring knife, a 5" serrated utility knife, a 5.5" santoku, an 8" bread knife, an 8" chef's knife, six steak knives, a 9" sharpening steel, kitchen shears, and a hardwood block.
Henckels International is the value-oriented brand from Zwilling J.A. Henckels. While they may not be quite as ornate as the higher priced knives, they are fully functional in the kitchen, and will serve you well for years to come.
