What material is better quality for a knife set: forged high carbon steel or stainless steel?

I am comparing an Anolon set to a JA Henckels International. Are both materials dishwasher safe? Which is most rust resistant and longer lasting?

Neither of these makers mention exactly what grade of steel they use for their knives, so I can't say anything as to their quality and performance. Good quality Knives should always be handwashed. If you handwash and store your knives in a knife block, rust shouldn't be a big issue.

How long a knife lasts depends on quite a few different factors, but mostly on how often you use it or abuse it. An everyday kitchen knife may need to be sharpened every year or so.

I recommend having your knives sharpened by a professional. There are a lot of "sharpen at home" gadgets out there-most of them make it easy to permanently mangle your cutting edge and you'd end up having to take it to the pros anyway to be reground. Sharpening by hand requires a lot of skill, precision, and experience.

I actually prefer ceramic knives over steel. They're about twice as expensive but they stay razor sharp for years.
