Pretty, attractive, but not that functional

I mainly ordered this set because of the 3 tine forks, The knives were very attractive also. But looks aren't the most important thing.
The steak knives are not that sharp and definitely not sharp enough to glide thru a steak. The serrations are only decorative.
It would not even cut thru a tender piece of chicken breast, and with a steak it took a huge amount of effort.
The forks are nice but too light weight for the task, if one speared their medium size T-bone steak and lifted it up you can see the fork bending far in excess of any other fork I have seen.
Lastly it says it has a shinny finish, I thought that meant polished, but it look like a finish was applied to give it this look.
A very thin coating at best.
