Product Description

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Gourmet High-Carbon Stainless Steel Steak Knives, Set of 4

Amazon.com

From one of Henckels' moderately priced cutlery lines, these four steak knives will divide any rib-eye, chop, or roast into bite-size pieces. The thin, curved blades are perfect for precise cutting, though their fine serrations tend to tear meat fibers rather than slice neatly through them. Stamped from high-carbon stainless steel, these knives are lighter in weight than forged knives and don't have bolsters, which might not be essential when confronting a thick prime rib. The synthetic handles feature classic three-rivet styling with full tangs for strength. The knives are dishwasher-safe and they carry a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

Within four months the rivets had corroded in all of the knives but I decided to live with it. After 10 months one side of the handle separated from the rivets in one of the knives and it just fell apart. I am sending the whole set back to Henckels immediately.
UPDATE:
Henckels sent me a new set of knives just like the ones I had. I have had them more than 6 months and they have not corroded. If another one breaks, Henckels will replace it. Apparently I am unable to increase the number of stars so I'll just say here that I now give them 5 stars. These knives are great for steak. They are sharper than any steak knife I have ever used.

Got this knives set during an Friday Sale. A real good deal for Swilling JA Henckels product line. The blade is similar to the Henckels 4/5 star and Pro-s blades except this is stamped instead of forged. Although this is a stamped knife, the blade is actually thicker than the blade of a comparatively higher line of 4/5 star, so Forged or Stamped blade makes no difference for this steak knife. These steak knives make cutting steak easy and "classy". Your friends would think these knives are very expensive, for which is the contrary. If this set got any cheaper like the previous sale, just get a few sets at once, you won't regret it. Just beware not to sharpen it on a steel or manual sharpener, it has to be prifessionally sharpened. The only puzzling thing is in the weird design of the blade where there is a little offset curve blade near where the blade and its handle meet; what is this offset for, it can actually cuts a finger if someone got a big hand. Just be careful in handling any type of knives.

I received a set of these steak knives as a gift for my wedding shower last year. They are absolutely astounding - they cut the toughest meat, and make slicing tomatoes a dream. They do not bend or warp like other steak knives I have used. I just purchased a second set, because my husband loves them so much the first set is constantly in the dishwasher!!!

The best set of steak kinves we have ever owned. Exceptionally well made, good feel, and keeps a sharp edge for years. Highly recommended. I'm about to buy more of them as my wife uses them for everything.

I ordered a set of these knives more than a year ago when they were offered for less than $30. We use them daily, they remain extremely sharp, look and feel wonderful, and are a pleasure to use. I have been washing them regularly in the dishwasher and have not noticed any damage or discoloration to them. I wanted to buy a second set but they were always approx. $50-$60. Finally, they were recently on sale for less than $25 so I did buy that second set. They would have been worth the full price, but I sure love a bargain. I will be watching for the next sale so I can give some as presents.

Length: 0:45 Mins
My wife and I received these as a wedding gift. The blade is fine, it has a serrated edge along the front portion of the blade and an un-serrated portion along the remainder of the blade. They are full tang which means the metal runs the length of the blade into the handle. While I have no complaints about how well they cut or the metal I have to give these a 1 star because out of 6 steak knives in our set 3 of the handles have cracked and are coming apart after only normal household light use. All of the rivets that hold the handles are heavily oxidized as well. I am including a video review to show the issue.

My wife had contacted the manufacturer and they were completely unhelpful. We were told to take them back where we got them. Unfortunately they were wedding gifts and I don't know where they came from. I expected more from a product that cost this much from a manufacturer with such a well known name. I would not suggest buying these at any price. I have read the other negative review and they had the same exact issues but they were corrected by the manufacturer. I will try to contact them myself again and will update my review to share their response. I am attaching photos of the broken handles in images as well.

Update: Well, I mailed the knives back and they were found to be defective and were replaced. Despite them being replaced I am still left disappointed with my experience, here's why: I was told to mail my knives back, they would be reviewed, and if found to be defective, would be replaced. I was notified that it would take 6-8 weeks. My issue is, despite being aware of this extended time frame to process my knives, an email or call would be nice to say that they have been received and are being reviewed.

As always the Henckels name bespeaks of a quality knife. The International series offers unprecedented value for the cost conscious consumer looking to build an affordable kitchen collection with the best of names. These knives cut through even the toughest cuts of meat and poultry and have durable handles that won't break under pressure. Thy are also well balanced with fully tined handles. This is a safe recommendation for any steak lover.

First of all, the set I received had been sold before because the package was damaged and there were numerous small scratches on the blades. Looks like someone wiped them with a scrubber.
But as others have commented, I felt the handles were too small.
The blades seemed a bit flexible for the price as well.
And the Henckels logo on the blade looks like billboard advertising every time I looked at the blade.
Frankly, did not feel like a quality product. I sent them back.
