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.

I own several knives, but I find that I use this one almost exclusively-- it cuts through anything with ease and minimal force-- I've used it on chicken, beef, pork chops, onions, peppers, garlic, ginger, carrots, broccoli, grapefruit... I could go on, but I suspect you get the point (and I wanted to emphasize-- these are thought of as vegetable knives-- it cuts through anything with ease, though I haven't-- and won't-- try it through bone). The only problem with it is that it cuts so well, I have to be careful not to cut things too small because its so easy to work with!
I also find that things I'd normally use a paring knife for, like mincing garlic, I'm using this. Additionally, per advertisement, nothing sticks to the side of the blade due to the hollowed out grooves. Not really sure how it works, but I don't really care. This is really a superb knife and has taken its place as my main all purpose knife.
As some of the previous reviewers posted (and some had been deleted), Amazon had been listing the wrong item here. Many people were purchasing the Henckels International Classic 7-Inch Santoku Knife with Hollow Edge, not "Part of the Pro S series of cutlery" as stated in the Amazon product review by Cristina Vaamonde or the "J.A. Henckels Professional S 7 inch Santoku knife with hollow edge" as stated in the Amazon product description. And even though the photo of the product shows the double Henckels men, the knife being shipped only had one Henckels man...another indication that it's not worth $74.99-$84.99 Amazon price or the $110.00 retail price it's listing. The International Classic knife can be purchased at Target, JCPenny and a whole bunch of other stores for the retail price of $39.99. If you paid $74.99-84.99 for the wrong knife, please get your money back!!!
First, let me say that without a doubt, the investment is WORTH IT. I knew this the first slice I made through a potato. It was as if I were cutting through butter with a hot knife. So smooth - so quick. I was amazed.
Once I got used to how sharp it is (was actually proud of my first cut) and how to handle it, there is no stopping to what I can cut. I use it on vegetables of all kinds, cubing beef, and even slicing through thick sandwiches. I make sure I use the truing blade, and it's as if I just purchased it.
I am so pleased with Henckles, that I now own the cleaver, paring knife, and chef's knife. My husband and I have decided to collect the Pro S line for our kitchen. Great quality, solid handles, even weight - and swift through anything you put them to. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to invest in their kitchen's hardware. I know I will be pleased with them for many years to come.
The edge is ground reasonably sharp from the factory, but its by no means a razor edge. A good diamond stone, paired with a ceramic or Japanese waterstones can put a much nicer edge than the factory one.
So why only 3 stars? First, the blade, while thin by German standards, is postively chunky when compared to Japanese knives. Not just Shun, but more specifically Japanese knives, from Japan which have blades that are just as stiff, but literally a fraction of the thickness near the edge. This translates into superior cutting and less force needed.
Second, this knife does not hold an edge for very long. I can get a shaving sharp edge on the knife, but it won't keep it for longer than a few weeks. Even when wiping dry the blade after each use and hand washing only, the edge just won't hold
Thrid, its just not quite long enough. Its fine for chopping most thing, but long veggies, and meat require a sawing action or two cuts which is not ideal.
Lastly, the granton scallops are useless. Other reviewers state that food does not stick to their blades. They alwasy stick to mine.Read more ›
