The Bottom Line:
These knives are great. They slice well, and can be used for a variety of kitchen tasks. The handles are easy to hold and cut with. Though these knives do not compare to high-end knife sets, for the price we think they are well worth it.

What it claims to do: The Miracle Blade III Perfection Series
Knife Set claims to be the only knife set you'll ever need, providing quick and controlled chopping, slicing, cutting and dicing. And they claim it will never need sharpening.
What we found: The Miracle Blade's primary knife, the all purpose slicer was able to handle my everyday cutting tasks. It doesn't do miracles, but didn't let me down either. I particularly liked the recessed handle which allowed me to cut all the way down to the cutting board without having to tilt or reposition whatever I'm cutting. The cuts weren't as smooth as my normal knives (which are from the Henckels 5 star series) as the serrated edge on the slicer sometimes tears the food.
The Rock N' Chop does rock. It made my chopping work faster and easier. You can use the center section to chop say a potato
in half and then use the edge to slice it up. The aerated edge at the center does a good job of releasing what you just sliced.
The Chop N' Scoop is a perfect complement to the Rock N' Chop. The control ball makes it easy to chop or mince herbs and the thin flat blade makes it easy to scoop up whatever I just chopped, almost like a spatula.
The paring knife is solid and comfortable to use. The included filet knife, shears and steak knives are nothing special.
As part of our testing we sawed through ten inches of one inch thick hard wood with an All Purpose Slicer. It took awhile.
We compared that blade with a fresh out of the box All Purpose Slicer. The model we had tortured cut just as well as the new one.
Don't put these in the dishwasher. They may start to rust.
The Bottom Line: The all purpose slicer is sharp and dependable. With all the included knives,
the Miracle Blade set is very versatile and performs well for the price point. It can withstand heavy use, but not the dishwasher.
