Care and handling of Genesis cutlery.
The performance of a knife can be diminished if not cared for properly.
Cutlery should never be washed in a dishwasher because intense heat and harsh detergents may cause the handle to deteriorate. Carefully wash by hand with soap and warm water, rinse and dry with a soft towel. Do not soak or submerge in water for long periods of time or use chlorine bleach because it can pit and discolor the blade. Avoid soaking in aluminum or stainless steel sinks because these metals may cause pitting on the blade.
Store in a cutlery block or sheath to preserve the cutting edges and prevent injuries.

VERY sharp right out of the box
good selection, useful knives
high quality knife roll
large round handle, fills my hand (for my taste, this is perfect). knives with slimmer handles tend to want to rotate or move when cutting through something tough. These have a nice round handle that fills my hand and offers superior grip.
lightweight.... it's nice over time to have light knives, reducing fatigue and whatnot, but a heavier knife would have a more "solid" feel to it. I do not foresee having a problem with these, as the blades are full thickness and don't flex much, but light knives usually have a "cheap" feel. They managed to make these light and still feel durable.
Extremely sharp right out of the box, don't expect to have to sharpen.
Overall, great kit for use in a working kitchen. fairly inexpensive, solid knives but not flashy. these will be my everyday for a long time.
1: Good quality steel without breaking the bank - these knives aren't VG10, but they're comparable to a number of much pricier options in terms of materials. They take a great edge and stay sharp. Just remember to give them a couple of licks with a honing steel before using them and to hand-wash them after use and they'll be razor-sharp every time you need to use them.
2: Non-porous non-rubber handles - wood handles look great, but require extra care to keep them looking their best and I've never liked the way rubberized handles feel in the hand.
3: Just enough knives - this set contained exactly what I was looking for in terms of cutlery - I've owned the big 10+ piece sets, and every time, I ended up using a handful of them while the rest languished unused in the block. A medium-length standard chef's knife is the workhorse of the set, while the long bread knife, paring knife and boning knife definitely have their uses. The only semi-extraneous item in the set is the 5" utility knife, but even that gets pulled out on occasion.
4: Bolster/blade design - a bolster that doesn't extend all the way to the edge sealed the deal for me - the smooth transition between the bolster and blade makes the traditional 'pinch' grip much more comfortable.
An aside - the Wusthof Studio block (search 'B00A6L24IY' on Amazon) is a perfect small-footprint storage/display solution for this set.
