Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty and sharp These knives are sharp, watch out onions, tomatoes, steaks and fingers! Yup some accident might happen but they're are amazing. Only bummer, which we knew before getting it from other reviews, is that it's not dishwasher safe and you really need to wash them asap after you use or they start rusting and getting stained. Still they're very nice knives and the steak knives are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We purchased this product a year ago and have been completely satisfied. The knives have been used daily and we have encountered no problems at all. We never put them in the dishwasher. The dishwashing detergent will cause pits in the blades and can cause them to rust. If you take care of them they will last a lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gift for newlyweds My husband and I registered for this not only for it's affordability but how much it provides. The knives are incredibly sharp, and there is an extra space for knives you may buy outside of the product which I like. The steak knives are not that sharp though. We are using the ones from our old set in their place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rusts I received this off my wedding registry and within months, Rust stains started appearing. I called C&B customer service, and they advised that it was "pitting" stains from acidic foods. I hand wash each knife, and they don't sit with food on them for too long so I decided to bring them in store. They tried to polish the example I brought in and when they we're unable to remove the stain, they gave me a new set. Same exact thing happened with the new set. I'm not sure what the problem, is but the Purchasing team at Crate & Barrel needs to talk to Calphalon. Clearly, I am not the only one experiencing this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust rust and more rust Received this set a few months ago as a wedding gift. Rust spots appeared after just a few weeks. Only a few months of use and they are getting worse and worse. Waste of money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the price. So far have had no issue with these knives, they do require regular sharpening as do most knives. Block is a great color and grip on knives feel great in your hand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Already Rusting We received these knives as a random wedding gift. Knowing we needed new knives anyways, we kept them. We've had them for two months and they are already rusting. The smaller knives also don't cut very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knives I bought these knives about 2 and half years ago. This is my first set of good knives and I am glad I found some that I love. I have used them on a daily basis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knives but... These knives are a great deal. You get a variety of different knives, as well as, a set steak knives, which are a great addition to the set. When I first received the set, there was a defect in one of the knives. Customer service sent a replacement right away. However, now rust is developing on several of the knives. I always hand wash and dry immediately, and I've only had them 7 months. I don't think rust should be forming this early....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sharp knives!!! I ordered this knife set about a month ago and we LOVE them! Super sharp though, so be carefull handling them. When they first arrived, I thought I received a damaged set so I went to the store to exchange, but the handles looked the same, as if they were run through a dishwasher. But once I hand washed them they got their luster back and look awesome on my butcher block counter. Great set, you won't regret buying them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Knives My fiance and I registered for these after extensive research at C&B and other retailers. We wanted knives that had a jagged steak knife and these are perfect. We only have 2 complaints: The block has 2 empty spaces for "extra" knives - I suppose this is a good feature for some, but not for us. The knives easily get water marks in the DW. I know you're supposed to hand wash everything, but when you use a knife to cut through raw food you want to fully disinfect it in the DW. Overall, they are really good knifes and are very attractive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife set Very happy with this block set. Would give it a 5 except the knives stain just a little. However, a little baking soda and water takes the stains right off. Stays sharp, especially with the steel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust spots Our set is only 10 day from purchase. All that we have used developed rust spots and no long carry their edge. Never used the dishwasher and followed care instructions. Would not recommend this cutlery set at all, waste of our money!
