Any of the cookware promoted by The food network?

I have to say Im thoroughly disappointed in the chef's knife I bought. Yeah yeah I guess I bought into the hype. You would think that a network dedicated to the art of cooking could actually get a basic chef's knife correct.

After only about a week's worth of use, I could see 2 small divots of rust forming on the blade. At 2 weeks I could already tell the knife was getting dull cause it would barely cut an onion. I can almost run my hand down the blade and not get cut its so dull.

Am I missing something? I take pretty good care of my knifes, I dont let them soak in water or anything. I most of the time washed the knife and put it away right as I was done with it just to prevent this kind of thing from happening. I think I paid a good bit for it too like 80$. Its not so much about the money as I thought the product would stand up alot longer than it has.

I have some of Paula's stoneware, and I like it just fine.

Nothing beats my great-grandmother's bean pot that I inherited, though, along with her rolling pin my great grandfather carved for her.

I bought a few of their knives and really like it. You do realize you have to sharpen them, right?

well of course I know knives get dull over time but after just a weeks worth of light use?  Like cutting vegetables and stuff :P Plus the rust thing is just inexcusable.  No knife should rust that quickly unless it was in standing water which it wasnt.
