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. Henckelss Friodur ice hardening for corrosion resistance, a process that also contributes to cutting-edge retention.

These durable Novodur handles are perfectly bonded to the full tang on each knife for stability and durability.

Needless to say, I've found my knife...it is a godsend to anyone who works with fish, chicken, meats...the blade is flexible enough to make skinning fish like salmon, halibut, haddock, snapper, etc. an absolute breeze, but stiff enough to make boning chicken & other meats very very easy!
I do recommend only handwashing this knife, however...it says dishwasher safe, but I wouldn't risk the high-heat of the wash cycle...
All in all, a GREAT addition to ANYONE'S kitchen.
It's really amazing how much easier it is to work with a good professional knife. We later got a (not quite as expensive) set of Henckels and, although they are good, they are not quite as nice as this particular model. This Pro S series has a better handle and a nicer weight. If you need a good boning knife, this is the one to get.
I have a mix of Wusthof Classic and Grand Prix knives, but settled on this to 'match' my Classics. There's no difference between the Pro S and Wusthof Classic in terms of performance, but I preferred the lower price tag and shorter length to its Wusthof analogue.
I have tried the other names and Henckles beats them all so don't try to save a few bucks.
As for this particular knife, if you can only spend the money for ONE good utility knife, go for this knife. I use it for paring as well as for all other kinds of uses except for things that require a chefs knife or cleaver...it isn't only for boning and filleting. In fact, I don't think I have ever boned with it, (I own three of them since my husband and I both cook together and we are always fighting over who is going to get this little knife, so here I go getting another one. Hopefully the fighting will stop now!
You should always invest in the Henckles honing/sharpening stone when you buy your first Henckels knife...DON'T EVER GET ANY OTHER STONE...they are totally inferior, trust me. And don't get fooled into buying any other device for honing either.
When you first receive your stone and knife, give the knife a few long strokes (both sides) on the stone to get it at top performance from the start, wipe with a clean, damp cloth, dry and you are on your way.
...Get this knife and you will NEVER look back...or purchase any other type of kitchen knife again. I would rather have one of these than ten of any other brand names.
The JA Henckels Pro S Boning Knife is a great product. It is a high-carbon stainless steel blade that does an excellent job in carving meats. I highly recommend this product.

This knife is one of my favorites in my set though I don't use it too often. I have owned it about 8 years and use it mostly to fillet meat and not much actual boning. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Force10JC

I am not a chef but this knife has an excellent feel and balance to it. Edge keeps its sharpness and makes cutting and deboning a bird easier than other knives I've used.Published 12 months ago by Casper
