    They are both international sets and the larger blades are different. One set is just straight flat blades. The other set the wider blades have these oval shapes on the blades. What are they?

    Supposed to reduce sticking of food to the blade. Don’t have any, so can’t say how well it works.

    All of those six knives top to bottom with the exception of the third knife down appear to be serrated edged knives.  I don’t like to sharpen serrated knives if your intention is to totally remove the serrations.  I like to believe these knives were made originally, by the knife maker, as serrated knives for a reason.  Maybe that steel just works better with serrations then a “V” beveled edge.  If this steel cuts well with a “V” grind bevel they probably would have been made that way.

    The dimples on the first and the third knives are called hollow grinds.  Like “Mikedoh” said those low spots are intended to help reduce food sticking to the sides of the knife blades.

    One person selling the knives with plain blade with no dimples in the blade is saying how much better the plain blade is
