So I got my last question answered so I thought I'd post my follow-up question as a new thread. Are these knives any good? (Yes those are dishwasher stains, but I can live with that.) On the blade it says X60 CR MO V14. They were given to me by a friend who's father deals in kitchen supplies and these had gone out of their selection. I also have a Wüsthof Ikon knife sharpener.
My only problem with these is the fact that they have green and red handles, thus my better half will not let me keep them on a magnetic strip or in a knife block on the counter.
What would a knife set of similar quality set me back? I would like white handles (increasing my chances of being allowed to keep them within easy reach on the counter).
