The idea of a set of nesting knives is just plain brilliant from an aesthetic standpoint, as well as a storage one. These French-made Deglon knives look as though they’re carved from a single block of stainless steel, although of course they’re not.
On a practical side, however, their handling and cutting characteristics might leave a bit to be desired. The paring knife and smaller chef’s knife look like they’ll get the job done (until they get too slippery) but the large chef’s knife and the deeply-swept fish knife don’t look like they’re made for serious use.
They’re more air than steel, and while they may slice the hell out of most cheeses they’ll probably give up their ghost if you try and force them through a beef joint.
C’est la vie. You and I will never snap one, since the set costs around $800. And as many rock stars can tell you after dating a supermodel, hot looks and good performance don’t always come in the same package anyway.
