Quality German Knives

It doesn't matter if you are a professional or an amateur cook, every kitchen and every chef or wannabe with enthusiasm, as the majority of us are, need a quality set of kitchen knives. And Henckels makes some of the finest German kitchen knives on the market that you can buy. They come not cheap, but the pleasure and pride you will feel for years to come using them certainly justify the extra money that they cost. Not to mention that they make really good gifts.

In this Hub I will list some of the best and most popular Henckels knife sets available at Amazon. The thing I like about Amazon is that you can read dozens of reviews of real costumers to help you decide whether you are making a good choice for you or not. Besides they always have good prices.

J.A. Henckels International Fine Edge Sinergy 17 Piece Knife Set

This is the most popular Henckels knife block set at Amazon at the moment of writing this Hub. So, If you are looking for a knife set with reasonable quality, but not outstanding, at an affordable price, then this knife set could be a good choice for you. The only thing you have to be aware of is that the knives in this set are not the high quality knives that Henckles is famous for. This is a economic line of stamped knives, good for the price and with a reasonable quality without anything fancy, but serviceable and useful for normal kitchen tasks. An excellent choice, if you are looking for an affordable set of kitchen knives with a minimum of quality, but not kid yourself thinking that you will buy a premium knife set. Besides, the Fine Edge Sinergy set has a full warranty against manufacturer defects in material or craftsmanship.

The 17 piece set includes 2¾ in. Paring Knife, 6 in. Utility, 5½ in. Boning knife, 8 in. Chef's, 8 in. Carver, 8 in. Bread, 7 in. Hollow Edge Santoku, 9 in. Steel, and eight 4 ½ in. Steak Knives. There are in this line sets with fewer knives if you are interested.

J.A. Henckles Twin L 2-piece set

The Bestselling Henckels set at Amazon at the moment of writing this Hub and I am not surprised. Two very useful high quality kitchen tools at a great price sure can do the trick. The set features a paring knife and multi-purpose kitchen shears. The quality in this case is excellent, both the knife and the shears are sharp and hold the edge well, and Henckels offers a full warranty in this set, a great deal.

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four Star 9-piece Knife Block Set

I have said above that Henckels is famous for crafting high quality kitchen knives for using at home, well I was referring to this line then: The Zwilling Four Star. The knives are well balanced and really sharp, and the quality is superb, solid and well build. As expected from forged German knives they are a little heavy but the design and balance compensate the weight to make them really comfortable to work with.

The 9 piece set, that has a bargain price when writing this hub at Amazon, includes: 2 ¾ in. peeler, 3 in. paring, 5 in. serrated utility, 5 in. hollow edge santoku, 8 in. Chef's, 8 in. bread knife, 9 in. steel, kitchen shears, and wood storage block.

J.A. Henckels International Eversharp 8-Piece Steak Knife Set

if you are looking for an steak knife set, then this Henckels International Eversharp set could be what you are looking for. The principal advantage? the Amazon price without doubt. The quality is nice, they are sharp with a firm handle and well made, a little on the flimsy side for my taste, though. But having said that, they are a great value for the money

J.A. Henckels Twin Pro-S 18-piece Knife Block Set

Another excellent set of Kitchen Knives, this 18-piece knife set is maybe the best value for money of the Henckels lines, believe it or not they sell more expensive ones (and I am saying really expensive.) The first thing you notice is the handle, they are a little smaller and riveted made of novodur instead of the polypropylene of the four star line. The steel and process of construction is the same that the four star, though. The balance is almost perfect considering that they are a little heavy, and the edge is really sharp.

The set includes: 2 ¾ in. peeler, 2 ¾ in. paring knife, 8 in. chef's knife, 4 in. utility knife, 5 in. serrated knife, 5 in. Santoku, 8 in. bread knife, eight steak knives, kitchen shears, a sharpening steel, and a heavy wood block.
