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. The impeccably balanced super bolster provides weight and adds balance for safer and more professional cutting.|

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The first thing I noticed was the wood handle -- I much prefer wood to the newer rubbery handles. Also, the heavy back-weighting made it feel quite steady in my hand: I liked the balance. The blade itself is sturdy, shaped like a small version of a chef's knife. And -boy!- is it sharp! This makes trimming small cuts of meat and vegetables very easy. I highly recommend this knife.
Personally, I do not expect to have to examine the blade of a knife in the $140.00 range to see if it is straight. This is something I generally reserve for knives purchased at the dollar store in desperation while traveling. If the blade is not straight, the knife is garbage, literally, no matter how sharp or what kind of fancy names they give their forging or their ice hardening process.
I would only purchase this knife if you examine the blade in person before you hand over your money. I purchased as part of a set from a store that was closing and would not allow any returns, forcing me to be at the not-so-tender mercy of the Henckels customer service.
I received mine in a nice black/clear case, and the knife was very well protected. Upon removing it from the packaging, I was immediately amazed at how sturdy but maneuverable this knife felt. For lack of a better description - it is perfectly balanced, allowing for precise control.
I can't attest to the usefulness of this knife, as I am still building my set, but I have a feeling it will be one of my top three used knives once the rest arrive.
