Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunningly sharp; beautiful heft & ergonomics! Chose these over the competition & am very glad i did. Will care for them as mandated & will post later if rust or durability issues develops, but after 1 mo of use, one could not wish for a better set in every regard. If you are looking for mid/high grade, give Calphalon a shot over the German stuff & you wont be disappointed in the least. These are forged, not stamped, using high-hardness rated German steel in China. The steak knives, however, are Chinese stamped, & take a bit of beating in reviews... more of a beating than i think they deserve; they are fine (if not a bit aggressive @ serration) and they help keep the cost of this set reasonable. Again, its great to see this American co give the Germans a real run in this market segment. Ignore the reviewers who claim a cpl knives were left out of the set - they purposely leave open two of the wood block slots to accommodate a cpl of preexisting knives from your kitchen. Fantastic set; if they hold up, we are never looking back & will rec them to anyone. Unbelievably sharp - we now handle them w reverence - and your big kitchen prep jobs will be revolutionized! Please contact Customer Service with questions or concerns. .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy quality stainless steel I had a cutlery set for almost 15 years that we got as a wedding present. They had wooden handles and I felt that after 15 years it was time to upgrade to a newer set. I bought this set and paid what I thought was good money for a good set of knives that didn't have wooden handles. While I will say they were extremely sharp (as you would assume for a brand new set) they had to be hand washed and dried immediately or they will get rust spots. Not what I expected from STAINLESS STEAL! The knives I had for 15 years never did that. I have owned them for just over six months and already one of the knives has rusted at the handle and then snapped in half while cutting with it. I would like to see something made today last more than a year. Why is everything made today cost more and the quality stinks. Not what I expected out of the Calphalon name and the price I paid!!!! Oh and the tips of knives are so thin that if you put them in your dish strainer it will bend the tip. Cheap!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best ergonomics, decent edges, poor durability. These are some of the most comfortable knives in the market. Clever ergonomic handle design and well balanced. The lables on the back are genius, prevent extra wear on the edges and speed up your food prep times by letting you find the right tool; makes you wonder why others don't do the same. The steel type is not indicated, only that is of "German" origin. Is good enough to get a workable edge; no it does not last as long or is a sharp as a high end knife, but it is better than most other budget knifes and it gives you a taste of a "real" knife. The design problem is at the "neck" of the handle. While the tang runs full length, it is not "full width". The steel narrows down quite a bit in the bolster, the area between the handle and the heel. Combine that with a less than perfect stainless steel, and closed handle that collects moisture, and you have a knife with a shorter life. My worse ofender is my favorite, the 7" Santoku. It's already cracking at the center of the handle, the syntheric being pushed outside it's grooves. The 5" Santoku andt the 8" Chef's will be next, I can already feel the separation and lift at the handle. It is a real shame, if these knifes were durable they would be an almost ideal knife for a home Chef on a budget.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very disappointed. I bought these knifes less than a year ago and the final straw minus the rust was when I was slicing a piece of cheese and the handle snapped off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best set ever!! I received this knife set as a Christmas present from my parents after they realized I was still using their old knife set they received as a wedding gift. Wood handles and all. But the blades had gotten so dull. After using these knives for 3 months I have been very impressed! I understand the "rust stains" everyone is talking about. I have left my dirty knives in the kitchen sink for about 3 days and they form faint rust spots. I just use the scrub side of my sponge and they rub right off. I have cut my thumb 1 time! I now make sure to pay attention when I'm hand washing my knives. I also try to hand dry them once I've finished cleaning them. Or if they sit they will get rust spots. But again, the spots scrub off. I have been very impressed with this set and have been thinking about getting a knife to fill the last slot on my block! I would recommend this set to EVERYONE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RUST I recieved these as a wedding present in April, I was so excited to have a "nice" set, just about every single one of my knives are rusted, they do not sit in water or go on the dishwasher , hand wash everything , I thought it was just this set so I returned it and bought another set....and this set rust even worst than the first one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE KNIVES! I LOVE the knife set! The blades are razor sharp - they slide through the skin of tomatoes like nothing (the ultimate test)! And even though the knives are a little heavier than the knives I already had - I don't really mind and I kinda like it. They look nice and they're easy to care for. I also like that the knives are labeled so that when you store them in the block, you can easily identify them without having to pull them all out to find the one you want. I'm getting rid of the knives I had - these are awesome! I have already recommended them to all the 'cooks' in my family. I even let my dad borrow the chef's knife. He is really into kitchen utensils and did lots of research before he bought his last set of knives. He was really impressed and commented that he liked the knife better than his own. Great Job Calphalon!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rust We used them for about a week and saw rust spots already. Returning them. Highly disappointed especially because of the brand name.
