Very attractive
October 13, 2014
This block set is very attractive and goes well with my acacia wood cutting board, and the knives are really nice. I enjoy using them regularly. They are very sharp so caution should be used.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Sharpness

These knives have all rusted in less than a month. They are also feel flimsy and uneven during use. The worst knife purchase I have ever made.
Cons: Quality, Fragile, rust

Rust? Flimsy? Really?
I have been a fan of Wusthof cutlery for many years. These are the only knives I would own, and have never had one rust or bend. If properly cared for, these would never rust (unless maybe you rub them with steel wool and then throw them in the dishwasher). Good knives like this should be hand washed, hand dried and returned to their block. Treated with proper respect they will return a lifetime of reliable service.
