Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Professional S

dgaylorNovember 11, 2013

Hi, I can get a set of Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Professional S for $170, but I am wondering if it is a good deal and if it is a quality set. I currently have a Global Santoku knife and would like to expand. The set consists of 4" paring knife, 5" serrated utility, 6" utility knife, 8" chef's knife, 9" sharpening steel, kitchen shears and a hardwood storage block. Thanks.

Have you thought about which knives you are most likely to use, when you say you would like to expand your collection? Most people here advocate having a good chef's knife, a good pairing knife, and a good bread knife for a start. Choosing which brand and model should at least be a function of trying the knives out on some food (some retailers let you do this, Sur La Table is one) and seeing how they fit in your hand. Overall, I think Henckels quality has gone down, although they do have some new introductions that I like. If you like the way the knives handle and what you find out about the steel they employ, then the 8" chef's, the 4" paring, the sharpening steel, and the shears would be a good set. If those are a good buy at $170, I'd say, go ahead. The others would not be my personal choice for knives, but you may feel differently. I neither have nor feel a need for a serrated utility or a utility knife. On the other hand, I have and use filet and boning knives. In short, it's too personal a decision for a definitive answer.
