We received these as wedding gifts in mid-2003. We have several other Wusthof Classic knives purchased as open stock. The steak knives we received as a 6-piece set. We treat these knives better than we treat our friends. They get touched up by the steel, they don't soak, they are hand-washed and they go in the block when not in use. However, last night an approximately 1 cubic centimeter chunk of the handle nearest the blade fell into my wife's dinner. She was shocked, as was I. Upon closer inspection, another steak knife from the set was about to suffer the same fate. I think it must have been a bad production run given all our other knives, received at the same time (and which get used about the same amount) all look fine. I sent them back yesterday so I'm interested to see how well they honor their warranty.

Update 1/23/07: Received replacement knives today. Putting them back into the block was bittersweet because I noticed another one of the original set is developing a crack, this time at the bottom. Not sure what the issue is...

Main point: They appear to honor their warranty.

Many people might scoff at a set of steak knives at this price, My only retort is to relate the story of sneaking around (because of my wife's non belief that there was a difference) and buying a set of the Wusthof Classic Steak Knives and using them for the first time. No matter what knife you have laying around and how sharp it is, the Wusthof is superior. It is the most obvious in steak knives because you use them everyday.
The edges are plain edged, honed by hand. These are NOT your STEAK HOUSE knives - no serrations. Your SLICING fine meat not disposing of a lost tourist in Texas!
Hand washing only, even with today's more sophisticated dishwashers with knife compartments preventing dinging and other damage to the blade, the high water heat and chemicals in the diswashing soap will ruin ANY knife. Think of the glass that you've had for years that you've run through the dish washer. Look closely and you'll see the glass is actually ETCHED from the detergent. And the old wood handled paring knives. Notice how they are duller and harder to sharpen? The dishwater temperature and chemicals from the detergent have damaged the steel. By the way, there is no SUPER steel that isn't known to all knife makers. Metallurgy is an exacting science, a formula to be followed, not magic with the Sorcerer and Mickey Mouse as his apprentice. Wusthof PROUDLY stamps the which metal their knives are made of right on the blade. It may be heard in a sales spiel from the college kid selling complete cutlery sets, that knives can be dishwasher cleaned. Nope.I don't put my saw blades, drill or router bits in the dishwasher either. They are precision edged tools just like your knives.
I'm very happy with this purchase everytime they come out for a meal.

I love all the Wusthof knives we have. Before we got married, we had a functional set and a really crappy set from lord knows where. We had no idea just how good knives could be. We were blown away when we tried these for the first time. We had these since July and haven't had to sharpen them yet (I was sharpening my last set all the time). When were were looking into the steak knives, we really couldn't see the difference between the expensive version and the cheaper ones. We went on faith that the expensive ones really were better. We got them, and tried them on some filets. Huge difference from our old set. Then I went to visit my father and found he had the cheaper Wusthof steak knives. They too were better than the crappy ones we previously had, but there is a significant difference in quality and ability to cut between the two Wusthof choices. If you have the money, go for the more expensive set. You won't regret it.

Ordered these steak knives to add to some Wusthof pieces we had recently purchased. As with the previous Wusthof knives, we are so pleased! These are excellent knives. They're a little larger than the 25-year-old steak knives we were replacing, but they don't feel heavier or cumbersome in any way. And they are unbelievably sharp!

For cleaning, the Wustof website states:
"If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel. Technically, WÜSTHOF knives are suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher (except knives with wooden handles), but there are a number of reasons why precious knives should not be cleaned in a dishwasher..." The website goes on to state the reasons why you should hand wash their knives, but I was happy to know the knives would be okay if they ran through a cycle in the dishwasher. In a busy household, a knife is bound to sneak into the dishwasher now and then (that's what happened to the old wooden-handled steak knives that we are replacing) and it's great to know we won't ruin the knives if it happens.

The only drawback is they're so darned expensive, but we think they're worth the investment. Would buy again, and recommend.
