other than the rusting issue, the knives are very good. they are incredibly sharp. however, with the rusting issue, i wish i could return them...
Pros: Sleek looking, well made, sharper than any blade I've used before...
Cons: Not dishwasher-safe, only 6 (rather than 8) steak knifes.
UPDATE: Finally, after almost 4 years, these knifes are starting to be too dull for tough steaks. Even after eventually deciding that dishwashing is something I had to do, they still have made it almost 4 years. These do rust if you don't have an air dry cycle on your dishwasher, but it seems to rust more if you rinse and forget to dry it properly.
The 3 big knifes are amazing. The spine (back edge) is rounded for comfort. The bolster (where the blade meets the handle) is rounded and extremely comfortable to use for long periods. Also the bolster / heel design eliminates the chance of cutting yourself from a sharp edge at the base of the blade. The balance is really good as well. These are really comfortable knives to use for extended periods of time. If you do not know knife skills please look them up and use a pinch grip for slicing and chopping. These knives are almost ergonomic for the pinch grip. I second guessed the quality of this set I got as a gift till I saw how much thought was put into the design and researched the materials used. These are my best knives I own and I use them daily with pride.
If you use your knives daily you will need to care for them. Cut on only plastic or wood, hone with the sharpening steel every couple of uses (more on that below), and keep it sharp by a professional or sharpen them on your own. Never put a quality knife like this in the dishwasher. When you are done with it rinse it and wash if needed, hand dry and place back in the block. Not only will it keep your knives in their best shape but it is a basic safety measure. Dishwashers destroy sharp knives.Read more ›
These knives continue to perform well. I have had no issues with them rusting at all, BUT I am religious about washing by hand the knives immediately after use and drying them extremely well. They never just sit in the sink and I never put them in the dishwasher.
Still going strong. There isn't a speck of rust on them and they continue to be sharp, despite the fact that I haven't sharpened them, which I probably should do. They really look the same as the day I received them.Read more ›

My experience suggests that high carbon, non stainless steel takes the sharpest edge while maintaining its toughness. Many, if not most high end pro chefs use non-stainless. Read morePublished 6 months ago by J. Burt
