I finally broke down and bought the Martha Stewart Color Coded Cutlery Set. I really like that each knife has a picture of what's it should be used for stamped on the blade by the handle. Of course that doesn't mean it can't be used on something else, but it's nice to have the reminder. I wasn't always sure. I don't use a peeler so the vegetable knife is my favorite. But really, they're all nice and sharp. Easy to use. They was up really easy. I hand wash mine, haven't had any issues.I think these knives are a really good purchase!!
