Knife starts to form brown spots / discolorations on one side after 8 month minimal use
on July 28, 2012
I purchased "Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Pro S 7-Inch Santoku Knife with Hollow Edge" in Nov 2011 via Amazon with expectation of known quality from the company. However, in less than a year and very minimal use (once a week or less since I still have my 10-year old Japanese Santoku knife), I start noticing my henckles having brown spots / discoloration on one side of the knife. This is very shocking as I was expecting a very long lasting high quality product from Zwilling. I think my less than a year, minimally used Henckels santoku knife is starting to rust!! My 10-year-old knife has newer steel than this product. The only problem I have with my old knife is the wooden handle that is falling apart. I was considering replacing my cutlery set with Henckels 12 or 15 piece set but now I'm not sure.
