Amazon.com

Designed for the aspiring hobby chef, the Professional S series provides the excellence expected from Zwilling J.A. Henckels, the upscale partner of Henckels International. The three knives in this set blend traditional handles with precision-honed state-of-the-art blades. The set includes an 8-inch chef's knife, a 6-inch utility knife, a 4-inch paring knife, and a bonus 9-inch sharpening steel

Professional S blades are superbly constructed of premium high-carbon, no-stain steel that is Friodur ice-hardened for increased ability to hold an edge and take sharpening. The classically styled handles feature the strength of a full tang and triple rivets, while the enhanced bolster adds to the beautiful balance. Henckels recommends washing and drying all fine knives immediately after use. Made in Germany, the set comes with a lifetime warranty. --Ann Bieri

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.

Features

  • Sigmaforge one-piece precision-forged construction: Provides perfect geometry, high precision, and improved stability of the blade and steel structure, thus improving cutting-edge retention for lasting sharpness.
  • Laser-controlled edge: Is sharper and stays sharper longer. Has a more consistent blade angle.
  • Friodur ice hardening: Maximum no-stain properties and more blade strength. Improved resistance to corrosion and pitting.
  • Super bolster: Provides weight, insures safety, and adds balance.
  • Full visible tang construction: Provides proper balance and greater strength.
  • High-carbon no-stain steel, an exclusive J.A. Henckels formula: Nonstaining, nonrusting.
  • Precision honed: Is sharper and stays sharper longer.
  • Triple-riveted Novodur handles: Durable, strong, and smooth, these comfortable handles are perfectly balanced.
  • Dishwasher-safe: Easy care (though hand washing is recommended by J.A. Henckels).
  • Full warranty: J.A. Henckels stands behind all its knives.

This set has all the knives that you will use on a daily basis to prepare meals in your kitchen.

Far better to buy quality and get the three most commonly used knives instead.

After being disappointed with an array of cutlery over the years I finally found a set of knives that I enjoy using and even looking at. These are beautifully crafted knives that fit well in any kitchen. As for utility I have found the Chef's knife to be very well balanced and hefty enough to glide through about anything with ease. The 6" utility knife is very useful and can be used for an array of kitchen duties. It is especially handy for trimming fat and meats (ribs, briskets, etc). The 4" parer is great as a paring knife and can easily be used for trim work also. These three knives cover the majority of all kitchen work the average person is likely to encounter. The 9" sharpening steel is a necessity and I would not go without it. I would certainly add a block for storage to protect the blades. These knives are very, very sharp. Guard those fingers or you could lose them!

The only thing I can complain about is Henckel's overall lineup of knives. I think they would be better served to drop their "cheap" lines of knives and just stick with the higher end stuff. To me the lower end knives just lead to brand confusion and disappointment. People who think the lower end knives are going to be as superlative as the "Pro S" or "Twin Star 4II" lines may become discouraged with the brand before they ever try the knives that Henckel are famous for. At least that's my $.02. Maybe I am too critical but when it comes to knives you should buy the best quality that you can afford. Life is too short to play with dull knives!

Don't get fooled into thinking you need a 12 piece knife set - you won't use 80% of the pieces on a regular basis. Far better to buy quality and get the three most commonly used knives instead. This has been a great set, holds its edge well. All it needs is a weekly tune-up on the included honing steel. The only other knife you need for a complete collection is a serrated blade for bread and bagels.

These are simply the best knives I've ever owned. You can get better but unless you're a sushi chef you won't need it:

PROS: They're super sharp and cut through just about anything with no problem; the weight is good and they're balanced very well; feel like they'll last forever; the handles are triple riveted and have no gaps.

CONS: The smallest knife is too small to use for very much; they're not as sharp straight from the factory as they can be; the label on the handle is a sticker that will come off after using it a while; the printing on the blade fades after repeated [hand] washings.

I've worked in restaurants where the chefs had their own personal knives and these are just like those. I highly doubt I'll ever buy another chefs knife again, and I can't believe I wasted so much time before trying to use lousy knives.

Don't buy a huge set that has 15 mediocre knives in it. You can only use one at a time and you don't need a boning knife or shearing scissors or anything like that. Take the same money and buy a few really good knives in a couple sizes that you'll use often and you'll be better off.

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Pro S 3-Piece Starter Set is truly the perfect set of knives for a beginning cook or for an accomplished cook. The set includes a 4" paring knife, a 6" utility knife, a 8" chef's knife, and as an bonus, a sharpening steel. Unless you have unusually large hands, these sizes are perfect.

I have these exact pieces, although not purchased as a set. I purchased them separately years ago and I love them. They are used daily. I also have a Pro S bread knife that I use a lot as well as a Pro S serrated 5" utility knife. Henckels cutlery is among the very best in the world, including the top French and Japanese brands. I have tried them all and I always reach for my Henckels Pro S knives first.

I have fairly small hands and I find the handles fit my hands well. The knives are well balanced and my hands and wrists don't get tired using them. I like the fact the knife blade extends all the way to the back of the knife - the blade does not get wobbly with use. The blades stay sharp for a good, long period - I get them professionally sharpened about every 2 years or so. In between, I do use the sharpening steel and the knives are good to go. The blades are made from Friodur ice-hardened premium high-carbon, no-stain steel.

I am pretty careful with my knives, keeping them in a slotted in-drawer wooden knife rack. The drawer is the knife drawer, nothing else allowed. I'm not keen on knife blocks - too dangerous if you have children around. Don't let the knives soak in water - wash and dry them after using them. With good care, these knives will last a lifetime.

I have had a set of these knives for about 7 or 8 yrs...I use the honing steel on them with each use...they are still as sharp as when I first received them as a gift those many years ago...so sharp in fact that I sliced a good chunk of my finger off a few months ago without even realizing it until after the deed was done...so be careful...these are not knives to be toyed with...I would not consider my kitchen complete without them...I spent many years using junk knives...I am spoiled now...I'm thinking of ordering a set for my daughter as I was at her house at Thanksgiving and forgot to bring one of my knives with me...[knowing she does not have good knives...I might as well have been trying to cut the meat with a butter knife]...everyone needs a set of these knives...and as someone else stated...this set of 3 are all you really need...I LOVE these knives...do not hesitate...order these today.
