Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusting I purchased this set of knives from BB&B. The knives quickly began to develop rust spots. I like the set, but am very dissappointed they began to rust. I have never seen knives I own rust before. I will be seeking warranty and will update afterwards.

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 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 2 out of 5 by from Rusty I received these as a wedding gift from my registry. I was disheartened to see how quickly they rust after just a few months of use. Since the steak knives have serrated parts on them, they can't be sharpened. I also found the serrated points on the steak knives would shred any proteins I used with them.
