before purchasing, i read the reviews and noted that i should hand wash these knives... and i've been doing just that and placing wet knives in my dishrack to air dry. maybe that's where i went wrong (i should have towel dried them as well?), but the knives still rusted, and that is NOT making me happy. i have another knife that looks just like these, made by Cuisinart, that DOES NOT rust, even when washed in the dishwasher. i'm wondering why these rust so much. isn't "stainless steel" supposed to resist rust?

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...

Now, I use to think knifes were just knifes, until I bought my first KitchenAid block-set. These things cut through anything. I recently moved, and gifted my last set to my sister, and thought I would upgrade to an all stainless steal model. I figured these, being stainless steel, would be dishwasher safe, however, once I received them it said not to use in the dishwasher. That is my only regret, with this set, other than that, they are wonderful, but if you don't like washing by hand, try another set. I washed my other set (with non-stainless steal handles) in the dishwasher, and eventually one of the handles cracked from the heat, the blades however held up perfectly well. I might still try and clean these in the dishwasher, but for the price, I don't want to chance it.

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.

My wife got me this set for christmas a couple years back and I absolutely love them. If you do the research you would know there are 3 kinds of materials used for most knives. Carbon steel which is soft, cheap, does not hold a sharp edge for long, and rusts. Stainless steel which is hard and keeps a sharp edge for a while but, is really hard to sharpen. The best of both is high carbon stainless steel which gives you the best of both worlds, which is what this set is made of.

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.

I just received these knives about a month ago and finally used them earlier this week. They are great so far. Very sharp and they look good. So nice to have a decent set of knives to use after the dull knives I was using before! I do have a couple of relatively minor things to be aware of if you're looking to buy these knives. One thing I don't like is that when I put everything into the block, it looks nice, except that the scissors do not stay in place. The little spot for the scissors doesn't fit them perfectly, so the scissors tilt to the left or right, unless you manage to work with them a little bit so that they stay vertical. I can see that being a bit annoying, but it's not a dealbreaker for me. Also, the knife handles on the steak knives have "KitchenAid" written in large black lettering. It's a bit larger than I would like, but not horrible. All in all, these things would not prevent me from buying the knives because they generally have favorable reviews. I haven't had an issue with rusting, but I haven't used them much yet. I am being very careful to handwash and dry them immediately after use, so hopefully it won't be a problem for me. If I have any issues with rusting, I will try to remember to update this review.

UPDATE 3/12/12:
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.

UPDATE 1/15/13:
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.
