Purchased these Laguiole Jean Dubost set of 6 table knives. They not only have the most beautiful and colorful handles but the blade works excellent on steak, as that was the first my family tried them out. They also commented on the attractive color. I have used for peeling and cutting veggies and works great. I really really like them and so glad I purchased these. Thank you. I have visited France twice, so I have a great appreciation for owning these.
