The knives are really nice. They are sharp and look very nice on my counter. I highly recommend them. I do not put them in the dishwasher, I hand wash them to keep them looking their best.
I just got these, and will likely return them due to the fact that they are NOT dishwasher safe and that was one of the main reasons I purchased. The description says dishwasher safe, hand wash recommended...what the brochure says is that they CANNOT GO IN THE DISHWASHER! In addition to hand washing, they recommend you dry them immediately. This is quite a difference. They appear to be decent quality for the price otherwise. The block is nice, but if you like perfect looking wood, there are some variations in the wood grain. I didn't mind them myself.
Very satisfied with product. Good value for the money. Like others have mentioned this set may not suit the needs of a chef but for a family the set works out great! We have not put our knives in the dishwasher as others have recommended and we also rinse them right after hand washing them.
