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.
I think the key to avoiding rust on sharp knives is to never put them in the dishwasher. I have read that the detergents used in dishwashers are harmful to the finishes of the knives and lead to rust. I don't know if that's true or not, but I do know that metal doesn't rust unless it gets wet, so I wash and dry my knives immediately after use. Be as anal as I am, and your knives will stay in great shape!
Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and I took the knives with me to use. Several of us used the majority of the knives throughout the day. They had a nice weight to them, which helps you control the knife when using it. I liked them so much, I might buy myself a set to use at my home.
A note about knife storage, etc. The chefs in my classes insist that knives should never go in the dishwasher as that ultimately ruins the blades to the point of having to send them to the manufacturer to get repaired. Wash them by hand right away, dry them immediately and put them away right away. You'll extend the life of your knives if you take care of them properly.
The reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 is that they had no packaging in the box to tell you where to put the knives in the block. The knives had numbers on their packaging, but I didn't see a chart showing what went where. I was able to figure out based on my own experience what went where, but that might have been confusing for my parents. It would have also been nice to have a bit of an explanation as to what each knife is called and what it is used for in the kitchen.
Perhaps there is something I am not doing right though, I am certainly no knife expert. And my cutting skills are not very good. In some ways I'm glad these blades are dull all the time or some of my accidents could have ended with me losing a finger... However, I'm pretty sure some of my accidents have been the result of blades that were too dull! It's like a catch-22. Anyway, in the future I'll probably invest in one or two single knives of higher quality.
SHARP SHARP SHARP - cuts beautifully
Attractive - with the black and stainless steel
Has a sharpener
Steak knifes are perfect
Wide variety of knife sizes
Apparently not dishwasher safe... but I have been washing them in the dishwasher and I have been fine thus far. Cross your fingers they don't rust!!
