We've had these for 2 months. I waited this long to review them because I wanted to see if they would rust. I typically put the knives in the dishwasher, though I'm careful that the blades aren't rubbing against something else. The steak knives do sometimes come out of the dishwasher showing spots of rust that you can wipe off with a towel, but the kitchen knives do not. Stainless steel will do that, especially the cheap stuff. It isn't really rust, in the sense that it will eat through the knife. It's more like a stain. The two types of knives are made with different steel. The kitchen knives are German steel, shipped to China for forging. The steak knives are Chinese steel, stamped in China. I suppose China can make good steel, but this particular steel isn't as good as the German stuff. Having said that, the steak knives are very nice. They are partly serrated and partly straight blade, and cut through meat, cheese and veggies on your plate very well. The stamped steak knives are a hollow grind, but the kitchen knives are a convex grind, which are easier to keep sharp and have less drag when cutting through something thick, like when skinning a melon. Our last set of knives lasted us 20 years, but they were all stamped hollow grinds, which aren't as durable a grind, and don't take honing as easy as these do. An interesting comparison between our old, but trusty knives was how they sound. When you tap them on something, these Calphalon kitchen knives sound like a sword ringing against something, while the old knives and the Calphalon steak knives make a thud. No idea what that means, but it's intriguing.

The Calphalon knives do take honing well. They seem to require different angles against the honing tool, depending on the knife, though.

The steak knives aren't made of German steel and are less sharp..by a lot. However, the knives that ARE made of the forged German steel are amazing and almost worth dealing with the steak knives inferiority. If you are looking for a quality knife set I would spent a bit more money and make sure all the knives are high quality.

It appears that people struggle to take care of their knives.

I work with knives regularly and know that people care for their knives differently. While knives say that they can be put into the dishwasher they never should be in order to care for them appropriately. Knives can also get spots if they are exposed to acids without being cleaned. If knives do have spots that appear rusty they are typically cleaned easily with barkeepers friend or bon amie. They are mild abrasives and will not harm the metals.

These knives are lifetime warranty and are forged steel. They should outlive you. Just learn hot to care for them appropriately and you'll be okay.

Never put these knives in the dishwasher - they will not be guaranteed by Calphalon for any reason whatsoever if they have been in the dishwasher, and believe me, they know if they have or haven't been in the dishwasher. There's a reason the mfgr. states do not put in the dishwasher. I, too, would love for Calphalon Contemporary to produce a boning knife.

The knives feels good in your hand and are well balanced. There's your second star. Now for the bad. We bought the entire knife block set about 15 months ago. After about 8 months the santoku knife broke in half right where the blade meets the handle. My wife was fortunate enough to find an exact replacement at Ross for individual sale for about $20 so we figured we'd give it another shot. Just a couple weeks ago, THAT knife broke in half at the exact same point as the first. I promise we are doing nothing to abuse these blades. We dry them immediately after HAND washing them and we're not trying to cut through concrete. The other blades in the block have had no issues. They all require frequent sharpening, but are otherwise well intact. I don't think we'll be sinking any more money into Calphalon blades. I've always felt the brand was a little overpriced but they do have a reputation for decent quality (as far as cookware is concerned anyway).

We bought this knife set at a local Calphalon outlet store for an even better price than shown here. We were more than happy with them after a few months. Thus far, they have stayed sharp and clean easily.

I've had this 17 Piece knife set for just over 3 years now and I am happy with them. I keep the knives in the block and hand-wash them. I haven't had any issues with rust and they keep an edge pretty well. I love the 4 1/2 paring knife so much that I bought another one with a 3 1/2 paring knife. The block has a few extra slots so I can fit those knives in the block as well. The handles have a nice quality feel to them and they feel well balanced.

While I love the other knives, I'm not too fond of the Steak Knives in this set. My last set of knives were Henckles and the steak knives worked great as paring knives. The serrated portion of the steak knives works fine for its intended purpose but not for most other cutting. I'm tempted to replace the steak knives in my block with 4 1/2 Inch Paring knives. The steak knives are also Chinese steel vs German steel for the other knives.

That being said, I'm still happy with these knives and use them daily.
