J.A. Henckels Twin Cuisine Knife Set The newest product line from the well known cutlery manufacturer J. A. Henckels of Solingen, Germany, the Twin Cuisine line offers forged steel construction with newly designed ergonomic full tang handles. Three of the most used knives in the kitchen plus a sharpening steel make up this very useful and beautiful assortment. This is an excellent gift for anyone starting up their own kitchen, with blades to cover every task.

The forged patterns here are definitely heavier than counterparts in stamped steel or top quality forged steel Japanese chef's knives. With thicker blades as well as heavy bolsters that extend to the edge of the cutting blade, these three knives can handle heavy work including chopping and twisting. The wider edge bevel of this European style gives the blades strength and resistance to chipping, but does not hold an edge so long as harder grades of steel or cut quite so effortless as a good quality thinner blade.

Still, if you need a few knives to cover the range of a full set, the chef's knife here is versatile enough to mince herbs and even do some chopping with the base of the blade. The 6" utility knife will do the work of boning poultry or fish as well as handling medium slicing chores like preparing tomatoes for sandwiches, and the paring knife is often the first you'll pick up, for peeling and cutting out blemishes in fruit and vegetables. All three are easily sharpened with the honing steel provided. To really round out the set, add a good Santoku in a lighter build for slicing vegetables.

The eye catching pattern of the handle is strong and gap free, using a permanent bonding method to join the polymer slabs to the tang, instead of the older three rivet construction.

For extra paring power, add this fruit & vegetable knife set from Calphalon.
