I like the knives and it's a good set.

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.

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.

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.

After moving into our first place together, my wife and I really wanted some nice kitchen knives, but weren't ready to spend the 300-400 dollarsi would take. After hearing good reviews about Chicago Cutlery, we decided to give them a try. I think this may be one of the worst sets they offer.

DESIGN/QUALITY
The knives themselves are well designed and feel nice in the hand, and the block is pretty sturdy! The steak knives are handy and the kitchen scissors are extremely handy! The rest of the actual kitchen knives cut moderately well and have stayed pretty sharp over the past 2 years. Here is our biggest problem: we have taken great care of these knives, without any real abuse or misuse, but several of them have already developed rust spots!!?? These are supposed to be stainless steel! It's highly disappointing! Steel wool and polishing compounds have not helped!

WHY 3 STARS??
- Cheap (+)
- Cheap (-)
- Stainless Steel blades have rust spots (--)

OVERALL
We still use these knives and they will do for now, but I can't really recommend them to anyone. I highly suggest you keep looking, there are MUCH better sets out there for the same price.

**UPDATE**
Well we finally upgraded, and I can HIGHLY recommend this set: Wusthof Gourmet 12-Piece Knife Set with Block. It has all of the features of the CC set, but we have seen no rusting and in fact the Ginsu knives have stayed infinitely sharper!

Just as the other reviewers mentioned, these get rusty after a few uses.
I do not recommend them. Had other products from this company before without this problem.
