J.A. Henckels Twin Signature Asian Set Henckels of Solingen, Germany, now produces a lighter streamlined counterpart to its usual forged steel builds - the Twin Signature Asian Set features hollow ground blades of stamped high quality German stainless steel that rival the versatility of traditional Japanese santoku knives.

This two knife set includes a 3" hollow ground paring knife and a 7" hollow ground Santoku style slicing knife. Thinner blades without the heavy bolsters of Henckels' older patterns allow better control when slicing or peeling and make sharpening the full cutting edge a simple task.

The granton hollows create air pockets between the blade and the work, lessening friction and allowing sliced food to slip easily away without so much stacking as on the old flat ground knives. The hollows also reduce cutting friction, easing the load on wrists and hands.

Ergonomic handles give users a comfortable and secure grip and lessen overall fatigue due to repetitive chores. The riveted slab handle construction is gap free and sanitary, easily cleaned either by hand or in the dishwasher. For best results a quick hand wash and dry is recommended.

Sharpening is simple - unlike some harder Japanese blades, these German rivals are easily touched up with a sharpening steel. Hand honed at the factory, the edge can be reground as needed, either with home sharpening systems or a flat stone.
