30 years with Chicago Cutlery! We received our first set of Chicago Cutlery knifes (didn’t include steak knifes) 30 years ago from my husband’s aunt as a wedding gift. They had wooden handles. We still have them! They’re still sharp and I still prefer the paring knife over every one I’ve tried. In fact I even bought a second paring knife – just in case!On a lark when I saw this set, 18 piece Insignia Steel Knife Set, on the Deal of the Day (almost two years ago) I bought it for my husband for a Christmas gift. He’s gotten into cooking and I thought it would look nice setting out on the counter. I think it may have been his favorite gift and one we use constantly. The knifes stay very sharp – still haven’t needed sharpening two years later! We never put any of them in the dishwasher (per manufacturer instructions) and they have never needed polishing (other than hand drying) or any other care.Everytime we use the steak knifes with guests they are amazed at the sharpness of the blade…

Great cutting performance, easy to clean For years I’ve been using a cheap knife set. I got sick of taking forever to cut vegetables (and of always having my knife slip rather than cut), so I decided to get a more expensive set of knives. I’ve been skeptical for years of getting expensive knives because I’m not really a fan of washing dishes/utensils by hand.Anyway, when they arrived my first test of them was to cut up an onion. The difference was night and day. Usually — I diced the onion in probably no more than 15-30 seconds, tops (after peeling it). The cuts were so smooth and proper that I didn’t even cry while I was cutting it. And as for washing these knives — if you’re prompt about cleaning the knife right after usage, it takes only a little bit longer to do it by hand than it would take to put a cheap knife in the dishwasher. And the built-in sharpener is convenient and easy to use.

Great Knife to Dollar Ratio I will start by saying that I purchased these for $99 not the $89 they are currently listed for. WHAAATTT??? Philyodaddy never gets conned like that!Here is a ranked order of things I look for in a Knife Set:1) Sharp as hell2) Sharp as hell3) Sharp as hell4) looks prettyThat is the entire list. I am not nearly proficient enough in the kitchen to have other requirements. The knives are sharp as hell. They cut the crap out of stuff. I enjoy showing off their sharpness to amazed visitors (more realistically, I just show my girlfriend over and over again). Look how easy it is to cut through lemons! You try! Case closed. They are also a pretty good looking knife set. I’m not sure I needed 18 knives, because I only know what about 8 of them do, but it is impressive looking and really makes people know that I’m the boss.I purchased them about 1 month ago, so I cannot objectively weigh in on the rust-issue (I have none at this…
