Product Description

Product Description

Twin Cuisine is the latest addition to the J.A. Henckels family of fine cutlery. This 8-inch chef's knife is one-piece precision forged, with excellent cutting retention, corrosion resistance, and an exclusive ergonomic handle design. The 8-inch chef's

Amazon.com

One of the newest premium lines from Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Twin Cuisine was introduced in 2004 with a major revelation: it's the first high-quality forged cutlery line to feature a molded handle with a visible, full-length tang that runs horizontally. In fact, the handle is absolutely stunning, with the shiny tang curving slightly as it courses through the black nonslip polypropylene. With no rivets or gaps, the ergonomic handle provides seamless comfort, while the full tang adds weight for precision balance. The single-piece blade, forged from high-carbon, no-stain steel and strengthened in Henckels's exclusive Friodur ice-hardening process, retains its sharp edge through extensive cutting and chopping. Made in Germany and covered by a lifetime warranty, Twin Cuisine knives are dishwasher-safe but are best cared for when washed and dried by hand.

The Twin Cuisine 8-inch chef's knife is practically a kitchen necessity. The pointed, curved blade allows the knife to rock with ease, which enhances the speed and precision of slicing carrots, mincing garlic and parsley, and dicing onions. The weight of the large knife may take some getting used to, but the superb balance lends itself to every task. An all-purpose workhorse of a knife with a very satisfying feel, the Twin Cuisine chef's knife makes an excellent gift for any seasoned or aspiring chef. --Ann Bieri

From the Manufacturer

Twin Cuisine is the first quality forged knife to combine the comfort of a truly ergonomic, molded handle with the precision weight and balance of a full horizontal tang. Plus, the Twin Cuisine’s exclusive, award-winning patented handle design is a new standard in fine cutlery (U.S. design patent #D524,121). The series is available in many styles for numerous cutting tasks. Twin Cuisine is also available in a variety of block sets and gift sets. The Twin Cuisine series truly is a masterful blend of form and function.

A Higher Standard in Knife Construction

Twin Cuisine knives are traditionally forged from a single piece of J.A. Henckels’s exclusive high-carbon, no-stain steel formula. The result is a knife with high durability, professional strength, and weight. Twin Cuisine also uses J.A. Henckels’s Friodur ice-hardening process, which results in a blade that has excellent cutting-edge retention and corrosion resistance. The blade edge is precision honed and laser controlled to maintain a sharper and consistent blade angle.

New Ergonomic Handle Technology

The Twin Cuisine handle features exclusive new and innovative handle technology: a full horizontal tang without rivets. High-impact polypropylene is bonded with J.A. Henckels’s high-carbon, no-stain steel, resulting in a remarkably comfortable handle with a smooth shape and no gaps. The world-famous Zwilling J.A. Henckels logo is etched on the end of every Twin Cuisine knife handle, indicating its quality.

Features

  • Traditional one-piece hot drop-forged construction: Provides high durability, strength, and weight.
  • 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.
  • New, patented full horizontal handle tang without rivets: Provides a strong, smooth, comfortable handle with great control and balanced design.
  • High-carbon no-stain steel, an exclusive J.A. Henckels formula: Nonstaining, nonrusting.
  • Precision-honed blade: Is sharper and stays sharper longer.
  • Dishwasher-safe: Easy care (although hand washing is recommended by J.A. Henckels).
  • Full warranty: J.A. Henckels stands behind all its knives.

This is a great knife! Very well made and does the job! I had the Wusthoff top of their line chef's knife and exchanged it for this one. This knife to me was sharper and better balanced. And this style handle fits my hand well. If you have a larger hand you may find this grip more comfortable. Although I do own a few hand forged Wusthoff knives, in my opinion Henckels makes a better knife.

This is just a quick warning about the Twin Cuisine design for all those that are interested.

Four star for the cutting ability of the knife, One star for the handles,(Because you can't click no stars)

I have been involved with the restaurant industry for some thirty years now as a Chef, management, designer, contractor etc... So I know good from bad when it comes to restaurant products.

About four years ago I decided to purchase a new set of knives. Henckel being one of my top choices, based on previous experience and ownership.

I settled on the Twin Cuisine because I liked the larger handle and overall weight of the knives and the look. Full length tang, no rivets and a more robust design of the handle. I purchased from various vendors on Amazon a compliment of around nine knives of various lengths and cutting styles. I also got two sets of the Twin Cuisine Steak Knives.

Speaking for the knife, (cutting portion) they are a great set of knives. They keep there edge, (as long as you hone them) and I think I have only had to sharpen them a few times over the years.

Now for the handles. Every one of these knives the handles are cracked, not cracking.... cracked. From my 10" chef knife to the steak knives. There is definitely a flaw in the plastic used to mold these handles. I have found references on other forums about this problem with the twin cuisine so buyer-be-ware.

Although they are warrantied for life the hassle is you have to send them in one at a time to Henckel, which frankly I have not taken the time to do, and it can take them up to eight weeks to deal with the warranty.

I am 5'10", with hands to match. Knives with the traditional handle are just too small and my hands cramp up if I have to use them for a while. The handles on these are thick and solid and ergonomically curved. Great for a woman with larger hands or your average guy. Wouldn't recommend them for a small woman because of the handle size and because they are a heavier knife overall. My only negative with these knives is that they don't have an ID on the end of the handle the way another company (is it Wustof?) does, which makes it easy to find the knife you want without pulling them out to check.

I am an assistant to an executive chef and instructor at one of the top ten culinray schools in the country. Althought I am not a professional myself, I find that using top equipment makes the differences. This knife speaks for itself. The edge has remainded true without a lot of fuss. The ease of use is something else. If used correctly you can slice and dice all day. The only drawback is the weight. Some might fine it a little heavy at first, but stick with it, the wait will be worth it. Excellant knife

I have had many types of knives in my past but none this heavy, sharp and useful. The handle is both ergonically useful and very beautiful (a nice combination). This is impressive to the look and touch. This is staying sharp through many tough jobs.

This knife has become the envy of the entire kitchen staff. I work in fine dining and this knife does it all. It keeps a shaving sharp edge. Be sure to pick up a Henckels steel and keep it that way. The balance is fantastic and the handle is the best design I have ever used. And it is by far the most comfortable. You'll be looking for things to cut with this knife. Next on my list is the serrated utility knife. You won't regret this purchase.

Verified Purchase
This is a great knife, heavy, but well balanced, which makes working with it a joy. The fact that it was a Deal of the Day $58 for B Grade makes it that much better. The B grade was given because there is a slightly dark smudge on blade, almost unnoticeable, and I doubt I would have noticed except that I knew I was buying a B grade knife that had no functional imperfections, but aesthetic ones.

The handle is very different from every other knife we own. The handle profile is highly ergonomic, very nontraditional shape. Most knives, whether full tang or not, have a handle that mirrors the cutting blade, that is, when held with the cutting edge perpendicular to a cutting board, the handle has a tall vertical cross section, and narrower horizontal cross section. This Cuisine style handle wider in the horizontal cross section making for an easier, ergonomic grip. The blade is exceptionally sharp, and so far stays that way.

A word of warning to those with small hands, the handle may feel uncomfortably large. I would agree that this may not be the best handle profile for those with small hands, and encourage you to try the handle in a store if you feel that you may fall into the smaller hand category. If you do not like a heavy knife, that is another consideration.

Also research the difference between Zwilling J.A. Henckels TWIN (the twins logo) versus the J. A. Henckels International (guy with a trident logo).

Little did I realize how cheap the International line of knives are. They do not hold an edge, and are night and day difference to work with. Even though we bought a whole set of International Henckels knives, they are terrible in comparison to the Zwilling line. The German made Zwilling TWIN line with ice hardened edges are superior blades.
