Henckels Twin Signature Knife Block Set Many people who buy Henckels products expect all their knives to be hand forged. The Twin Signature series from which this 7 piece knife block set has been selected is one of Henckels' stamped product lines. What you can expect is quality, but not of the same kind you see in their forged knives.

The differences you'll note mainly involve the thickness of the blades--thin, flexible and uniform from handle to tip. For heavy work like chopping through bones you'll need heavier knives, but for many lighter kitchen tasks these will work just fine. The blades are laser cut from rolls of German high carbon stainless steel, and the grind of the edges is laser tested to ensure uniform perfection. There is no forged bolster as in the older Henckels patterns, but where one is needed the shape of the handle serves very well--the grip and shape are comfortable and safe.

The selection in this set includes an 8 inch chef's knife, 5 inch utility knife, 4 inch paring knife, 2-1/2-inch peeling knife, sharpening steel, kitchen shears, and hardwood knife block. That's very focused on the lighter end of the knives you'll actually need. The peeling knife isn't likely to be your favorite, and if you do intend to use the old classic of the kitchen, the chef's knife, you'll probably be happier with a forged pattern. In a stamped steel design the santoku makes better sense.

This is a starter set, one that you'll probably want to upgrade in a few years anyway. Make sure the knives in this offering are the ones you will actually use, before you buy.
