I purchased the entire Miracle Blade set with wooden holding block around 2002 or 2003. What a piece of garbage these knives have turned out to be! The handle of the Kitchen Shears broke, all the knives have lost their sharpness, and since they have a scalloped edge you cannot sharpen them up, and to add insult to injury they are RUSTING and are full of stains! I wash them in my dishwasher, and only use them for light jobs like cutting steaks or fruits & vegetables, yet they look like they have been through *** and back that I am embarrassed to let guests use them. And to top it all off, the wooden block is now emitting a very noxious and strange chemical odor. When you pull a knife out of the block, the odor is stuck to the knife and then transfers to the food you are cutting -gross! I haven't even bothered trying to get everything replaced, because from what I have read on other complaints they will charge me in shipping what it costs to buy a new set.
My advice to everyone here is to NEVER buy knives with scalloped edges or with any other design on the blade that won't allow you to sharpen them, and stay away from this Miracle Blade garbage, unless you want tarnished, rusty and dull knives that stink when you pull them out of their wooden holding block.
Miracle Blades do not live up to their claim and are a huge SCAM -stay away from them folks!
