These knives were sharp and attractive however there are two things I didn't like - one is a personal preference and the other is a problem. First off the chef knife is very light. I like it to have some weight. These knives got rust streaks and spots right away. I only hand washed them as the directions stated but it didn't matter. Now that they are already rusty I throw them in the dishwasher. Disappointed but glad I got them for a reduced price.
Bought this set for my granddaughter for Christmas. Three of the knives have broken up to this point. Caled Overstock and was told I was beyond the Christmas return or exchange window and I would have to call the manufacturer durectly. They do have a 5 year warranty, but if they don't last what good are they? I would not recommend.
