Some starting to rust so wash and dry immediately after use.

That being said, if these knives can get me by for a year or so without rusting out, then the purchase won't be in vain.

I have had a Chicago Cutlery Set for 40 years and they are as good today as when I bought them!

I have been in the food service industry for nearly 15 years and bought these knives as a gift for a friend who is also in the industry. He was tickled with them. They are very sharp and well balanced. As for the other who have reported rust spots on the blades... This is a normal occurrence and does not take away from the function of the knives. Most of the best knives I've ever owned have done this. The knives that are truly "stainless" and do not develop the spots, in my experience cannot be sharpened as well as knives more prone to corrosion. The only negative thing I can say about this set has to do with the length of the knives. 7" chef's knives are good for many things, but I do like the 10" variety best for most of my needs. However, at this price, the quality and quantity of knives cannot be beat.

This is a $36 set of 14 knives. If you want a lifetime set of knives spend $200 and you'll get them. For $36 these are far better than what you could expect from bargain store knife. You're paying $2.25 a knife and another couple bucks for a wood block to store them in.

Chicago Cutlery makes high quality knives of all sort. Some of their best pocket knives will rust due to high carbon steel. Don't fight it. Work with it. Carbon steel takes an edge easier than stainless steel. Keep cooking oil on the steel. When they won't clean up any more, throw them away and get another set.

Says stainless steel but knives do show signs of rust after minimal use and only hand washing/drying. Also, no large carving knife in this set. Would recommend this set to those on a budget only, giving this set an average rating.

I have a set of Chicago Cutlery "Centurion" knives, which are definitely five star and comparable to the expensive German knives. I ordered this set as a gift and I guess I had expected a similar level of quality but in a different style. Not so! These were much lighter weight and seemed a little flimsy compared to the heavy forged stainless steel "Centurion" knives. The Chef's knife, as well as a couple of others, were quite a bit shorter than my current knife set. I knew at this point that I would not give this as a gift so did not even unpack the rest. It should make a good, inexpensive, starter set for someone just setting up housekeeping, which I suppose is it's intended purpose. I returned the set for credit.

If you are looking for a good knife set, Amazon has, or at least does as this is written, a very good buy on the "Centurion" set as well as several other styles. Just make sure that they are made of forged stainless steel.

This is a first-blush review. I've only just now gotten these out of the box and into the block. I will update this review after a couple weeks of use.

Pros: Block is solid, heavy and attracive. Full tang blade. 3 riveted handle. Knives are very sharp.

Cons: Too lightweight. Handles are too small/narrow (this is obviously subjective, but since I have big paws, the handles are a con). Stamped metal rather than forged. Knives, especially steak knives, fit very loosely in the block. It is clear that not a great deal of thought went into the design here. Does not come with a sharpening steel or block sharpener (seems like most sets have one or the other).

I can already tell I don't have knives for life here, but I needed a knife set for a new house and didn't want to spend the $250-300 yet that it takes to get into the quality knife arena. That being said, if these knives can get me by for a year or so without rusting out, then the purchase won't be in vain.

Bottom line: Clearly these are not high-end knives, and you get what you pay for. These are a step up from buying crap store-brand knives, but they are a far cry from high quality.

-----------------------UPDATE-05/19/2012-------------------------
After a couple of weeks of very light use, the following has proven true:

Edge - still sharp. All of these knives cut fairly well.

Comfort - These handles are simply too small, and do not feel good in the hand.

"Stainless Steel" - I can already make out very faint spotting on two of the knives. This is after probably 4 or 5 uses, hand-washing, and immediately drying.

I don't regret the purchase for the price, but I will be upgrading to a higher-end set sooner rather than later.

You get what you pay for. I do not like the quality of these knives and the fact that they can not be washed in the dishwasher. Pay the money for good knives....you'll be glad that you did.
