Stainless steel and rubberized handle knives

Anyone have anything bad to say about knives that are full tang SS with like a rubberized handle? I have 2 different makes and I am started to like them more than my wooden handle knives. They feel a little better, but dont need oiling and I think are dishwasher safe. I have a few knives that are all SS, but the handles are so hard and cold and have no give to them

At first I thought you were referring to Forschner Fibrox but then realized they are not full tang. What knives do you have?

anolon advanced series, which I really like the handle on and
Hampton forge Contempo
both of which feature german steel
anolon is ice hardened and glass finished
contempo is not supposed to stain

A laundry list of slightly dubious specifications to be sure, but they are handsome knives. I tried handling that Furi knife Rachel Ray has bearing her intolerably perky likeness a while back. Not my cup of tea, but I'm glad to hear you're enjoying your knives!
