Knowing the paring knife is made from a decent steel and this set is on sale ($15), I decided to make this purchase. Unfortunately, the construction of this parer is not what I expected. I have no problem with the steel quality. I have no problem with the fact that it is a stamped knife which I knew. My complaint is the fact that the blade is thin, which makes it too flexible and flimsy. I can easily bend it without much force. Part of the reason for its thinness is that it is a flat ground knife. The blade tapers all the way from spine to edge. If it is made from Japanese hard steels, then a thin blade is desirable, but this is not. Due to its thinness, this parer performs well for very delicate jobs like cutting soft cookie dough, deveining shrimps and peeling apple skin. However, it is not sturdy enough for peeling hard skinned fruits, trimming meat, cutting baby carrots or brussel sprouts. In my experience, this knife is not very sharp out-of-the-box and certainly not "razor sharp" as others have experienced. It may be sharper than some unknown brand parers, but this Henckels parer, coming out-of-the-box, was not as sharp as my Wusthof Blackwood and Shun Classic knives. I had to sharpen it a bit on my own, but it can take on a good edge. In my opinion, this parer worth about $5.
The shears are decent. They are micro-serrated, so they will cut well for a long time before you need to sharp them.Read more ›
The scissors are handy in my kitchen for opening my mail, cutting any paper or plastic packaging, and for doing my flower arrangements. They are somewhat smaller than my other pair, but they are every bit as sharp. The handles are almost as sturdy as well; another reviewer uses these for cutting up poultry, but I have my doubts about whether they are sturdy enough. My heavier scissors are available for that and other food processing.
The paring knife is literally razor sharp and does my salads easily. I even used it to slice slits in a frozen pie top, effortlessly. However, the handle is extremely light, and I wouldn't try to use any leverage with this knife.
The best part is that these products are guaranteed by Henckels, just like their other products. I recently mailed in my heavier scissors because one of the handles broke; this pair was over 25 years old. I paid the postage to Henckels, and they sent me a new pair free, including free return postage, no questions asked. You cannot beat that for customer service.
August 8, 2009 update: Now that I have been extensively using the knife for a couple of months, it is still razor sharp. Notwithstanding the thinness of the blade, it is particularly good for taking cooked corn off the cob and for cutting off excess fat from thick bacon. I flat out love the scissors for kitchen tasks; they too are extremely sharp.
January 21, 2013 update: Just wanted to say that these two items have held up perfectly. They are two indispensable items in my kitchen.Read more ›
