Rated 5 out of 5 by 1person Superb quality
Beautiful set, extraordinary cutlery, well worth the price. They far pass any previous set I have used in quality and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gmamelluvs2shop Knives are sharp
I bought it thinking it was the self sharpening knives and when I got it home and out I couldn't see anywhere where it says self-sharpening

Rated 5 out of 5 by WAshopper high quality
We received the Contemporary 17-piece knife set as a wedding gift nearly seven years ago and I absolutely love these Calphalon knives. The blades are remarkable quality and the handles are comfortable. They clean well and look as good as day one. I've added a tomato slicer to the set, but otherwise I have never needed a knife that was not part of this incredible set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lookingfordeals It's what the kids wanted.
From my perspective it looks like it will be great for the newlyweds. Only complaint is the packaging - looked like it was a returned product. Hope we don't find anything wrong when it is opened!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Busylady 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!

I received these knives as a wedding shower gift and loved them at first. They are now getting rust spots all over them. I'm very disappointed in them since they were expensive and I really wanted a nice set of knives.

I am very disappointed in the quality of these knives. After using them for only a short period of time, they have all rusted. Also, they were never really that sharp to begin with. I use many other products from Calphalon and have always been happy. These knives were a let down.
