I purchased this set of knives in ~2012 (not from here, obviously), been using them for 6 years easy. I'm not a chef by any means, so they are good enough for me. Never had any problems with rust or anything, and I don't exactly take care of them. I think i've sharpened a couple of the knives with the included sharpener maybe once over the years, and they still work fine for me. My only complaint would be that the blades of the steak knives are very thin and flimsy. Don't expect professional level quality from a complete set that costs what one good knife does. If you're a professional chef, or love cooking every day, then get something better. If you're a young student moving out on your own for the first time, and don't want/need to spend hundreds on knives, this set is good enough. I didn't even really research any other brands, just bough this to match my other Cuisinart stuff.
Have had Cuisinart knives in the past. You absolutely get what you pay for here, which is a cheap knife. It will not wow you. It will leave you to to be looking to replace them after a rather sad amount of time. Spend more on your knives and they will last you decades.
Is this set actually full-tang or just
made to look like it is?
I have this set, bought elsewhere. It's decent for the money. The steak knives are cheap, but the larger knives are of better quality and the block is nice. I have only had to occasionally sharpen them. I only hand wash and there's been a bit of rust but that was expected. I'll probably spend more for a complete forged set in the future.

The $50 Cuisinart all-metal set that we had rusted and pitted too. The reasonably priced 6-pc set by Mercer (w/o steak knives) has incurred no damage after two years of daily use and hand washing/dry. I touch up the edges with a sharpening steel.
If you don't want to replace knives, then spend ~$20/knife and just get Winco steak knives. c.f. $10.86/ Dozen: https://www.restaurantsupply.com/winco-kb-15w-5-jumbo-stainless-steel-steak-knife-with-wood-handle-12-pack
[EDIT]
Apparently all the restaurant supply stores want $12 to $60 in shipping, so as much as I have hated on Walmart...
