I didn't see anywhere that said "Rachael Ray not included", so I'm in for one.
The 12 days of crap was just that- crap.
It's funny how when Woot! calls their stuff crap, it's ok, but when *YOU* call it crap, *poof* you get banned. Hypocrites.
What's the point in commenting anymore when every time I comment, someone deletes it?

I can only site 3-4 weeks of nearly daily use, but I have these as part of a larger Rachael Ray set thanks to the largely good reviews, and have had great experiences with them so far. I really like the handles, they're super grippy... Almost too much so (they grip my grippy paper a bit when I reach into the drawer to get one out), but if your hands are a little wet, it still grips like a pro.
I was a little concerned about rust, as some reviews mention it, but I haven't had any issues. I've let them sit with a few drops of water on them (accidentally), but when I noticed the next morning, the water spots rubbed right off. They've also sat in the damp sink a few times for a night when the husband uses them, and again, no problems.
THINK OF THE PATHOGENS!!!

However, these knives are NOT full tang, and are not very well glued into the handles, but a little gorilla glue can remedy that.
I am a professional chef btw, and these perform their duty adequately, but don't expect Wusthof quality and I don't think you will be disappointed, especially if you only use them a couple of times a week (I recommend using a steel before each use; you will be amazed at the difference it can make in softer steel).
Not full tang = no sale for me. I broke a short-tang knife/handle just sharpening it.
Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.
