This is a variation of my review of the J.A. Henckels International Forged Synergy 13-Piece Knife Set. But this 16-piece set is the one I'd recommend, so here goes... My wife and I have been using the Forged Synergy knives for over 5 years, and we couldn't be happier with them. They are well made, well-balanced, have beautiful handles, a nice finish, and hold a very sharp edge--we've sliced tomatoes with all of them. If you're buying your first set of fine knives, these WILL hold up to the Henckels reputation for quality.

Now regarding what some others have said about rusting and quality, I'll just add my two cents. There is a "Forged Synergy" and a "Fine Edge Synergy" series, and the main kitchen knives in those sets are NOT the same (though the steak knives appear to be so). The forged series has a metal tine that runs all the way through the handle with the black grips riveted on. The J.A. Henckels International Fine Edge Synergy 13-Piece Block Set is totally different--see the Amazon photos and descriptions for yourself. Yes, this Forged Synergy set is also made in China (not Spain or Germany like some of the more expensive Henckels sets that are 2 to 5 times more expensive), but the quality is still excellent and should far surpass most users' expectations.

Regarding rust spots, we've had none. However, there are two main types of stainless steel: one is harder and slightly less stain resistant; the other is more stain resistant but slightly softer.

Update July 2013:

These have been and still are my daily knives for approx 5 years now. Still razor sharp with a little regular honing and the wood base has held up very nicely.

Also, Bar Keepers Friend gets rid of all yellow spots on the knives, which does happen from time to time. Also use BKF on my stainless cookwear, stainless appliances and glass cooktop.

Original Post:

These are mid-range steel with excellent edge retention and above par corrosion resistance. The weight is well balanced, single forged steel from blade tip to handle base, and with regular honing these should never need sharpening. That said, these are a mid-grade steel, not premium.

I think what people are referring to as rust is actually a milder form of oxidation (rust is a more serious oxidation that breaks down the structural integrity of metal). My grandfather taught us to never put a good knife in the dishwasher b/c the fast "heating and cooling" cycle tends to break down the anti-corrosive properties. This can (and will) happen to any metal regularly exposed to the elements, though a higher grade steel will be more resistant.

Recently my roommate (in her late-night stupor), placed the chef knife from this set on the bottom shelf of our dishwasher. What came out were two tiny yellow spots on the crux of the blade near the top of where the handle starts. My uncle (who's a head chef and butcher by trade), mentions cleaning the knife with hydrogen peroxide. Along with a little soaking, this removed the spots almost completely and the chemical reaction from the peroxide (from what he says) passively renews some of the steel's natural protection against oxidation.

I'm a few years out of college, work in finance and love to cook.

The prior reviewer must be rating a different model of Henckels knives than the "Forged Synergy." These knives are the second best I have ever used, second only to Henckels Pro and Gourmet knives which are 2-5X the cost of Forged Synergy. Possibly the other reviewer meant to review Henckels "Fine Edge Synergy" knives which are a much lesser quality that I would not suggest buying. If you are a home cook/chef, these are more knife than you will ever need.

Verified Purchase
I bought the knives for my wife's birthday. She wanted a set of "good" knives to replace the cheap ones we had been using for years. It turns out the Henckel's are, in fact, very good knives. She loves them. They are not serrated knives but very sharp straight blades. They are heavier than one would expect but the weight provides a sense of heftiness and is not a bad thing. The set includes 7 "working" knives, 6 nice steak knives, a pair of wonderful scissors, a sharpener, and, of course, the block in which to store them. They are forged knives rather than stamped which, according to what I've read, is a indication of quality. Although somewhat expensive (a little over $175), they are worth the extra money in terms of quality and functionality. People who regularly use knives in the preparation of their meals will be more than satisfied with this set. I did considerable research on kitchen knives before buying. There are more highly regarded knives out there (Japanese-made knives top the list) but they are VERY expensive and certainly knives of lesser quality for lower prices but, as always, you get what you pay for. These knives fall into the middle ground--well-made and high quality. You won't be disappointed.
