The knives are really nice, I was very excited to get them. However I am very disappointed that after the first time I washed them they started to rust. I washed them and let them air dry like I do with all my dishes and silverware, and the next morning they had rust on them. I had to scrub them for a while with steel wool to get it off. I feel that this shouldn't happen, I have plenty of other items made of stainless steel that can be air dried with no problems for years! My old cheap kitchen knives even. I wish I could return them but I had already tossed the packaging. This is possibly the first purchase I regret on Overstock. I don't blame Overstock, they are great, I just wish I could return these knives. I gave three stars because they are pretty as long as you don't mind drying them by hand after every use.

This is a great set for the average chef. I am not a professional but do like to cook using fresh foods and so use this on a daily basis. It came exactly as described. The set included a sharpener and each piece did need to be sharpened prior to use. The set also looks very nice with my black and stainless steel kitchen appliances. I have already thrown away all my other mis-matched knives.

I bought this set for my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas and they absolutely LOVE the set. They say the knifes work well and look beautiful in their kitchen. I wish I would have ordered this set for myself since it is now sold out..but have put my name on the notification list as I will purchase them when they become available.
I got this for my sister for Christmas and she loves them! Very well made and the set looks beautiful. These are light knives so if you are a big time chef, then this may not be the set for you. But for just everyday cooking this set is perfect and looks great in any kitchen.
Absolutely beautiful! Looks great with the stainless steel appliances, knives are of great quality and easy to handle. I was looking for a set that wouldn't rust and didn't have rivets on the handles. This is exactly what I was looking for and would recommend to anyone! Thanks Overstock once again for an awesome product!!
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.
