I bought this set around Christmas 2014. It's started out great they were beautiful knives and they cut great. About 6 months after I bought them I noticed a chip in the tip of the largest knife and then the steak knives started to rust. I was able to get the rust off for the most part but there is still traces. Now the largest knife has a chip on the tip and another one in the center. The tip I thought could have been my fault from washing it but the chip in the center happened while cutting Brussels sprouts. The rest of the knives are great but there is a reason these are only $*.
They look great and are pretty sharp but be careful not to let them lay with water on them they rust way to easy in my opinion. My cheap set of knives never rusted and sat in water these are very sensitive in my opinion. Hand wash only.
