From the Manufacturer
|The J.A. Henckels Twin Professional S (or Pro S) knife series features trustworthy quality and classic three-rivet styling--its a line of knives admired by both professional chefs and home cooks of all skill levels. The Twin Pro S line contains knives for all tasks, including the following open stock knife types: parer, bread, peeling, sandwich, utility, carving, steak, chefs, Granton edge slicer, santoku, and others. Twin Pro S knives are also available in a range of block sets and gift sets, to be sure that your cutlery needs are covered.|
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.
An Ergonomic Handle for Easier Use
|J.A. Henckelss Twin Pro S knives boast a comfortable, ergonomic three-rivet handle design that wont wear against the hand and helps to provide control when doing any cutting task. 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.|

Top Customer Reviews
The only thing I can complain about is Henckel's overall lineup of knives. I think they would be better served to drop their "cheap" lines of knives and just stick with the higher end stuff. To me the lower end knives just lead to brand confusion and disappointment. People who think the lower end knives are going to be as superlative as the "Pro S" or "Twin Star 4II" lines may become discouraged with the brand before they ever try the knives that Henckel are famous for. At least that's my $.02. Maybe I am too critical but when it comes to knives you should buy the best quality that you can afford. Life is too short to play with dull knives!
PROS: They're super sharp and cut through just about anything with no problem; the weight is good and they're balanced very well; feel like they'll last forever; the handles are triple riveted and have no gaps.
CONS: The smallest knife is too small to use for very much; they're not as sharp straight from the factory as they can be; the label on the handle is a sticker that will come off after using it a while; the printing on the blade fades after repeated [hand] washings.
I've worked in restaurants where the chefs had their own personal knives and these are just like those. I highly doubt I'll ever buy another chefs knife again, and I can't believe I wasted so much time before trying to use lousy knives.
Don't buy a huge set that has 15 mediocre knives in it. You can only use one at a time and you don't need a boning knife or shearing scissors or anything like that. Take the same money and buy a few really good knives in a couple sizes that you'll use often and you'll be better off.
I have these exact pieces, although not purchased as a set. I purchased them separately years ago and I love them. They are used daily. I also have a Pro S bread knife that I use a lot as well as a Pro S serrated 5" utility knife. Henckels cutlery is among the very best in the world, including the top French and Japanese brands. I have tried them all and I always reach for my Henckels Pro S knives first.
I have fairly small hands and I find the handles fit my hands well. The knives are well balanced and my hands and wrists don't get tired using them. I like the fact the knife blade extends all the way to the back of the knife - the blade does not get wobbly with use. The blades stay sharp for a good, long period - I get them professionally sharpened about every 2 years or so. In between, I do use the sharpening steel and the knives are good to go. The blades are made from Friodur ice-hardened premium high-carbon, no-stain steel.
I am pretty careful with my knives, keeping them in a slotted in-drawer wooden knife rack. The drawer is the knife drawer, nothing else allowed. I'm not keen on knife blocks - too dangerous if you have children around. Don't let the knives soak in water - wash and dry them after using them. With good care, these knives will last a lifetime.
