What Is the Pioneer Woman Knife Set?

This is a useful knife set that will help you prepare wonderful food to share with your friends and family! This is a 14-piece set which includes a wooden block for storage.

Product Specs

The Pioneer Woman Knife Set includes 14 pieces and comes in five colors: black, white/gray, red, brown, and turquoise.

The knives included in this set are: an 8-inch chef’s knife, an 8-inch bread knife, six 4.5 inch steak knives, a pair of kitchen scissors, a 5-inch utility knife, a 3.5-inch paring knife, an 8-inch sharpening steel, and a 6-inch nakiri knife. This set also includes a wooden block which holds the knives.

Also included in the Pioneer Woman Knife Set is a knife unique to the set, called the Signature Knife. The tip of this knife is a straight edge and is especially good for slicing meat. It’s an interesting addition to the knife set, though very specific in purpose.


The Pioneer Woman Knife Set ranges in cost between just under $50 to nearly $60. The price of this product depends on the color you purchase.

While white/gray, for example, is one of the cheapest colors, turquoise is one of the most expensive.

The other colors range somewhere in between the two highest and lowest prices, but they all fall within $50-$60.

Other knife sets are around the same price as The Pioneer Woman Knife Set, so the price of this set is near average.

How It Compares

We picked a few similar products available on the market to see how they compare to this set. These products are all knife sets that include storage blocks for the knives and at least 14 pieces.

We reviewed them on a scale of 1 to 5 based on these factors: price, ease of use, usability, design quality, warranty, and pros and cons. In addition to The Pioneer Woman Knife Set, we considered these other knife sets:

Emojoy 15-Piece Kitchen Knife Set

Oster 81009.14 Evansville 14 Piece Stainless Steel Cutlery Block Set

Cuisinart C77WTR-15P Triple Rivet Collection 15-Piece Cutlery Block Set

Pioneer Woman Knife Set

The Pioneer Woman Cowboy Rustic 14-Piece Black Cutlery Set w/ Wood...
  • Brand New in box. The product ships with all relevant accessories


The price of this knife set is reasonable, considering the quality, the number of pieces, and the included sharpener.

Ease of Use

These knives are incredibly easy to use. They’re great for the purpose that they serve and are a great choice for cooking. They rarely, if ever, snag on what they’re cutting.


According to reviews, these knives may rust easily. However, these are unlikely to rust if you clean them properly.

The instructions say to hand-wash only, making it necessary to hand wash them if you don’t want them to rust. Because they may rust easily, this only earns a 3 in usability.

Design Quality

Despite the issues with usability, those are most issues that have to do with materials rather than the actual design, the actual design pretty nice. They’re comfortable and easy to use.


The warranty information is not available through the link that is provided on the website. It must be requested through the seller directly.

This is inconvenient, but another review of this knife set claimed that the company said that they only cover replacements through 30 days after the purchase of their product, which is subpar coverage.


  • Good pricing
  • Good design quality


  • This product is likely to rust
  • Warranty is not listed with other information on this knife set
  • Small potential of snagging when cutting

Emojoy 15-Piece Kitchen Knife Set

No products found.

This knife set has 15 pieces, which includes the beautiful wooden block that functions as storage for the knives.

The included knives are: an 8-inch Chef Knife, an 8-inch Slicing Knife, an 8-inch Santoku Knife, an 8-inch Bread Knife, a 5-inch Utility Knife, a 3.5-inch Paring Knife, a pair of Kitchen Scissors, a Knife Sharpener and 6 pieces of 4.5-inch Steak Knives.

These knives are gorgeous and only come in a lovely brown color. They are worth the extra money, as long as you’re not on a budget.

Price (Approximate only)

The pricing for this knife set is reasonably high, sitting at nearly $70. Despite the increase in price compared to other knife sets available, this one has a high value that correlates to the higher prices.

Ease of Use

These knives glide over what they’re cutting like water. They’re super easy to use, which is great for any kitchen task.


These knives are also hand-wash only, like the Pioneer Woman Knife Set. However, unlike those, the other reviews of this knife set claim that this is less likely to rust, even if you put them through the dishwasher.

That being said, it might be a good idea to simply hand-wash these instead of putting them through the dishwasher.

Design Quality

These knives are comfortable to use, wonderfully designed, and worth every penny. They’re great knives.


Like the Pioneer Woman Knife Set, the warranty information is only available if you contact the seller directly, the description of the knives claims that they offer 100% money back guaranteed at any time.

This set is absolutely beautiful, and at a great price for those who are on a budget. The Rubberwood Block is durable, too, even though it isn’t real wood. This knife set is specifically made to be extremely durable.

Price (approximate only)

This knife set is incredibly cheap, at least in price, and only sits at around $27. That is a great price though there is still a question of the value of the knife set.

Ease of Use

This product occasionally snags, however, other than that, there aren’t very many issues with the ease of use of the knives. They’re actually great knives, and for a really good price.


These knives are, like the others before it, hand-wash only, however, they are protected against rust, and highly unlikely to do so. They are hand-wash only more for the purpose of maintaining the sharp edges of the knives.

Design Quality

These knives are comfortable, easy to use, and designed to not rust. That already gives them an “edge up” on the competition.


There isn’t any information about the warranty of this product provided on Amazon; the warranty information would have to be requested through the seller specifically.

In this case, there wasn’t any discussion of the warranty on the other review on this product.

  • Amazing price

Every knife set is different, and everyone’s needs in the kitchen are different. Some individuals may want to invest in a high-quality knife set because they regularly cook meals.

Others may need a more simple, affordable set they use every now and then. Everyone is looking for something unique for their kitchen knife sets.

For those who are looking for quality on a budget, the Oster 14-piece cutlery set may be the best choice.

The best overall set of knives is likely the Cuisinart 15-piece cutlery set, the last knife set reviewed.

However, we were simply comparing this set to the Pioneer Woman Knife Set, so now it’s time for the final verdict on this particular knife set.

The Pioneer Woman Knife Set is beautiful, with many different color options to choose from. The knife set is easy to use for the most part and will last for a long time as long as you clean it correctly.

However, the lack of warranty information is an issue. Despite that issue, we have decided that this knife set is worth the money that it costs, and are giving it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

We recommend this knife set to anyone who needs a new set for their kitchen, with the stipulation that they follow the directions on hand washing the new knife set. Other than that, this knife set is wonderful, and a beautiful addition to your cutlery sets.

Happy cooking, everyone, and don’t forget to have fun with your new knife set! We hope this helped you decide on which new knife set to purchase.
