Henckels Modernist 14-pc Self-Sharpening Block Set is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 893.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from stunning and so smart! I was looking at this Modernist set many times. it was beautiful but I just couldn't justify it because my knives worked perfectly fine, just not as lovely to look at or hold! When I saw that they made it with a self sharpening block the decision was made. This allowed me to get the knives I have always wanted but now they were upgraded! the self sharpener is awesome, I don't have to drop my knives off to my butcher just when I need the to be sharp the most. Its a perfect assortment of kitchen knives and We were blessed to get 6 amazing steak knives too. My old ones barely had an edge left. This was my favorite purchase of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp as can be and great feel! Oh my gosh! It has been so long since I had good knives, I forgot I didn’t have to risk losing my hand slicing a potato. These take on almost anything you can dream of. I use the chef’s knife most of the time, but I do enjoy the santoku and utility knives, as well as the steak knives. They feel really good in my hand, and they aren’t at all slick or slippery, even when hand-washing. The block is large, but honestly it is not that much larger than any other knife block that holds 14 knives. Well worth the counter space! I recommend using a wooden cutting board to preserve their blades. The built in sharpener is cool, but it can’t fix abuse!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set I just set up our new knife set, but I am impressed! Henckels has a great reputation for quality knives and this set is not only attractive, it is also made to last. The knives are so sharp and I love that the block is labeled. The one thing I wish is that there were more pictures of the block put together. It looks to me like 2 of my knives aren’t sitting right, but I can’t really tell as there is only 1 picture on the outside of the box with all knives in place. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and am looking forward to many years with this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing knife set I purchased this knife set to replace our aging Ginsu knives that we had. I was very hesitant in the purchase because we loved our current set, but they outlived their usefulness and it was time for a new set. After researching different brands within our price range the J. A. Henckels Modernist with the built in sharpener was our final decision and I have been very pleased with it. There were others reviews stating that their knives rusted quickly, but I don’t think they cared for them properly. I don’t use a dish washer and I wash them right after use. Care for the knife and it’ll last a while. I highly recommend this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Cut Above the Rest I love this set! The weight of the knives it's not too heavy not too light. I love the satin finish and just a little bit of roughness so that I don't feel like it's just going to slip right out of my hand. I really think they thought of everything. Even the knife block it's a great piece of wood. It's well-made and also has a nice weight to it. I love that they offer so many combinations and pieces because honestly there are always certain knives that you will use more often than others. I love everything about it... The quality, the engineering, even the sound of the metal coming out of the slot is all so satisfying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from what i have been looking for This set has everything ive been looking for. First they are quality blades from Henckels. I love the feel and the design. They look and very nice on my counter. Second they are very comfortable so they are a joy to use.This is truly a full set even including the steak knives that look great on my table as well as in the block. The self sharpening block is a big plus. I have always struggled to keep my knives sharp and this set takes care of it for me. A great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set Design This is a very modern take on a knife block set. The contrast between the silver knives and the dark wood block looks great in my kitchen, and I appreciate the way the handles are two different colors. Being able to make sure that the knives are always as sharp as they can be is a huge advantage. I like that each slot is labeled for the specific knife that goes into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They had me at “self-sharpening.” I am crazy about this knife set for a bunch of reasons. One, it’s as good-looking as I hoped, based on the pictures. Two, the knives are SO sharp, and I believe they’ll stay that way thanks to the self sharpening block. Three, I won back a bunch of drawer space in my kitchen, by getting rid of most of my huge mish-mash collection of knives. I could goon and on, but I think you get the idea. Highly recommend!

Oddly I see nothing in the description or specifications on handle construction. Also due to the construction of the handle you can't tell for certain either.  Can you tell me if these knives are full tang or not?
