Classically shaped (center-tip style, with curved back and edge), this little knife comes in handy at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the afternoons, when no one is looking, it'll slice open a package. Classic three-rivet handles distinguish Pro S from Henckels's other quality lines, TwinStar, Five Star, and Four Star. While this paring knife is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended.--Fred Brack

From the Manufacturer

The J.A. Henckels Twin Professional S (or Pro S) knife series features trustworthy quality and classic three-rivet styling--it’s a line of knives admired by both professional chefs and home cooks of all skill levels. The Twin Pro S line contains knives for all tasks, including the following open stock knife types: parer, bread, peeling, sandwich, utility, carving, steak, chef’s, Granton edge slicer, santoku, and others. Twin Pro S knives are also available in a range of block sets and gift sets, to be sure that your cutlery needs are covered.

A Reliable Standard in Knife Construction

Twin Pro S knives are precision forged from a single piece of exclusive-formula, high-carbon, no-stain steel under the all-new Sigmaforge standard. As a result, Twin Pro S knives have improved quality consistency, lasting sharpness, and perfect geometry. Sigmaforge one-piece construction also provides high precision and improved stability of the blade and steel structure, thus improving cutting-edge retention for lasting sharpness. In addition, Twin Pro S knives use J.A. Henckels’s Friodur ice hardening for corrosion resistance, a process that also contributes to cutting-edge retention.

An Ergonomic Handle for Easier Use

J.A. Henckels’s Twin Pro S knives boast a comfortable, ergonomic three-rivet handle design that won’t wear against the hand and helps to provide control when doing any cutting task. These durable Novodur handles are perfectly bonded to the full tang on each knife for stability and durability. The impeccably balanced super bolster provides weight and adds balance for safer and more professional cutting.

Customer Reviews

I would say this knife is worth the money.
Frog
It's not made in Germany, but rather made in China and it doesn't have the feel of a Professional S knife.
LocalHero
Professional S knives are equal to any out there and have served me well for many years.

While visiting friends in KC, I happened to try their Henckels 4-star knives and was amazed at their sharpness, balance, and comfort. I immediately decided I NEEDED to get a set of these knives.
I quickly settled on the 4-star chef's and fillet knives, but tried paring knife after paring knife without finding one that really felt right. The 4-star handle is great on the big knives (where one grips the handle with the entire hand), but didn't feel right on the paring knife; it felt like my pinky was in limbo, not meant to be on the handle, but not meant to be off it, either.
Then I tried THIS knife. The Pro-S 3" paring knife just felt *right* - it fit perfectly, it had just the right heft, and it was far more agile than the longer 4" knives. I've had it for six months and it performs exactly as I expected it to; this knife is just a joy to use.
I love the thing, but you'll probably want to do exactly as I did, trying a number of high-quality knives to find the one that feels right to you.

I love my paring knife! I cook a lot of fresh vegetables and find this knife to be wonderful for peeling and cleaning them all. I have small hands and have trouble finding a knife that fells right and fits my hand. The knife is sharp, well balanced and comfortable to hold. I would recommend this product to everyone who loves to cook.

I ordered Henckels Pro S 3" paring knife item # 31020-083 received a chinese knockoff item # 31460-081. It said it was a Henckels knife, but it was made in China, have never known of a Henckels knife Made in China. Package was wrong for the product too. Make sure that what you order from this company, MFS Wholesale LLC, is what you will get. I had to ship knife back and get refund. No problem there, but this should not have happened to begin with.

Buyer beware. The item you get is not the item pictured. It's not made in Germany, but rather made in China and it doesn't have the feel of a Professional S knife. Thinner, lighter, cheaper. Not a $50 knife. More like a $10 knife.

One has to read the descriptions carefully. Not having shopped before for these knives, thought a Professional S was the top of the line. Doesn't have quite the feel of the Zwilling and is made in China, not in Germany. Another knife I bought is a Zwilling and there is a difference. Still, a good knife for the price.

I bought this knife as a replacement for an older cheap one I had. I would say this knife is worth the money. Very sharp and it looks like it will last a very long time.

While this is obviously a quality knife, it's not what I ordered. The shape is completely different from the picture. The shape of the received knife does not work very well for cutting small items on a cutting board.

The knife we used for years for fine mincing finally died. We purchased the Henckels' Professional S 3" as a replacement, and it is outstanding. Does a super job of finely mincing things like garlic for sauces.
