Product Description

From the Four Star II series by Henckels, this 11-piece cutlery set includes a 2-3/4-inch paring/boning knife, a 4-inch paring knife, a 5-inch serrated utility, a 5-1/2-inch boning knife, a 5-inch hollow-edge santoku, a 6-inch utility, 8-inch chef's knife, and 8-inch bread knife. The collection also provides a pair of kitchen shears for snipping herbs or opening packages, a 9-inch sharpening steel for keeping all the blades in working order, and a hardwood block for safely storing all the pieces as well as slots for steak knives. Each knife features a Friodur ice-hardened blade precision-forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel and crafted to hold its edge for a long time. Ergonomic, polypropylene handles offer a smooth shape without rivets or gaps, while a full tang runs from the blade to the end of each handle for added control and balance. The detail of the new stainless-steel cap on the end of the handle with the Twin logo stamp provides an update to a Henckels classic. For best results, wash the knives by hand using a mild cleanser and dry completely. The storage block with all knives in place measures 10-1/2 by 4-1/2 by 12-1/2 inches, and a limited lifetime warranty covers the set.

From the Manufacturer

J. A. Henckels is proud to celebrate its 275th anniversary with its newest knife line--Twin Four Star II. This new line represents the rebirth of a legend, the classic Four Star series, which was first introduced in 1976. Twin Four Star II knives have an improved weight and balance, as well as a host of other features, making them ideal for both home and professional chefs. The Four Star II line contains knives for all tasks, including the following open stock knife types: parer, bread, boning knife, Kudamono parer, sandwich, fillet, carver, chef’s, slicer, santoku, and others. Twin Four Star II knives are also available in a range of block sets and gift sets, to be sure that your cutlery needs are covered.

A New Standard in Knife Construction

Twin Four Star II 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 Four Star II 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 Four Star II knives use J.A. Henckels's Friodur ice hardening for corrosion resistance, a process that also contributes to cutting-edge retention.

An Enhanced Handle for Easier Use

Twin Four Star II knives have an enhanced handle design that features a stainless-steel end cap with the famous Zwilling J.A. Henckels logo. These high-impact polypropylene handles are permanently bonded to the knife blades without any gaps. The new series also features improved weight and balance for improved cutting performance.

Features

  • Sigmaforge one-piece precision-forged construction: Provides perfect geometry, high precision, and improved stability of the blade and steel structure, thus improving cutting edge retention for lasting sharpness.
  • 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.
  • Full rat-tail tang: Provides proper balance and greater strength.
  • High-carbon no-stain steel, an exclusive J.A. Henckels formula: Nonstaining, nonrusting.
  • Hand honed: Is sharper and stays sharper longer.
  • Polypropylene handles with stainless-steel logo cap on handle: Bonded with seamless accuracy, these comfortably molded handles are hygienic (autoclavable) and food-safe.
  • Dishwasher-safe: Easy care (though hand washing is recommended by J.A. Henckels).
  • Full warranty: J.A. Henckels stands behind all its knives.

These knives are amazing--everything I hoped for. All the knives you need, nice weight, VERY sharp, sleek looking.

My only complaint has to do with the knife block, which is not customized for the knife set. The knives all fit in the knife-block slots, but they fit loosely and sit at odd angles. Also, the knife block only has 6 slots for steak knives. This was a problem when I bought the matching steak knives, because they are sold in sets of 4, so you either have 2 too few or 2 too many for the number of slots. A small thing with such a good set of knives, but I will be buying another Henckels knife block.

I've been meaning to update my kitchen knives for many years. Finally, thanks to those nice people at Ideara, I had enough gift vouchers to buy this set. I've only had them for a few weeks but love them. First, they are sharp - I know volunteer to do the vegetables and other prep in the kitchen. They also feel good, with a great balance - which makes them all the more useful. I am hoping that these will be the last knives I ever buy! I recommend them highly.

Got these as a first house-warming gift for my daughter and her husband, they were thrilled and she is going to take a cooking class at the voc-tech school to learn safe knife handling techniques. Expensive but they will last a lifetime.

I had a mismatched set of other knives, and this past Christmas I decided to purchase a matching set of knives. I ordered these knives through a different seller due to price, and I have to say that I am disappointed. These knives seem very lightweight and not as strong as the Wusthof knives I was replacing. I am not surprised by the comments from others that some of the knives chipped and broke. Mine haven't yet, but I haven't put them under heavy use yet either - a little scared to based on the flimsiness of the material.
