Henckeles International at Costco

Posted by mrjones (My Page) on

Costco has a 10-piece set of Henckels Internatinal "Couteau" series knives. The box says the knives are forged in Spain. The set is around $180 (I think). Had been considering Wusthof Classic, but this price is so much better. Any insights on either?

Here are some threads on Henckels in general. Maybe there is some info there.

It does sound like a very nice set. I tried to find it online at, but they show a different set.

Here is a link that might be useful: search on

RE: Henckeles International at Costco

Years ago I was given a set of Henckels. A couple years ago I bought a cleaver and another Henckels knife to match the set I had. The new ones were made in Spain; the old ones were German. No apparent difference in quality so far. Mine have black wood handles with metal rivets. They never go in the dishwasher. I sharpen them with a small electric oil stone sharpener I got at a yard sale years ago. They keep their sharpness well, needing attention maybe once a year depending on use.

If you access there will be plenty of posters who can give you detailed info. on the Henckels comparisons. Ages ago, I read that the International was a lesser quality Henckels than the ones upon which the reputation is based, but you can find out there if that is still the case.
