I got the 6" utility and the 4" parer for $18 and $14 respectively. They look a lot like the Henkels Pro S. Both needed a little edge touch up with an arkansas stone and are now very sharp. They seem to hold an edge decently and are pretty comforatble. I think they are a great buy for college or doing some cooking. If you do a lot of cooking, go for the Henekls, but for general cooking, they cant be beat for the price, IMO.
