Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Cuisine II 9-Piece Knife Block Set

Unlike many other premium kitchen knives where the exposed tang is visible from the top and bottom of the handle, the Twin Cuisine II gets its distinctive look from a visible tang on each side of the handle. In addition to its one-of-a-kind style, the Twin Cuisine II has been designed for maximum comfort with its light-weight contoured handles, and elite performance, thanks to its ice-hardened, high-carbon steel blade. Our nine-piece set is indispensable for everyday tasks, from mincing herbs to slicing meat and poultry. A visible, horizontal full-tang provides outstanding strength and durability. Lightweight, ergonomic handles are rivetless for maximum comfort and a sleek look. Specially formulated high-carbon stainless-steel blade offers excellent edge retention and hardness. Double bolsters improve balance and control at the cutting board. Zwilling's Friodur ice-hardening technique results in a harder, sharper blade that is corrosion resistant and highly elastic. Precise lasers are used to ensure each blade's edge is at the optimal cutting angle for maximum sharpness. Each blade is forged from a single piece of steel then ground and polished by hand. Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels since 1731. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. 9-piece set includes: 3" sheep's foot pairing knife. 4" paring knife. 5" serrated utility. 5" santoku knife. 8" chef's knife. 8" bread knife. Kitchen shears. Honing steel. Storage block.

Excellent Block Set for the price
December 19, 2013
I wanted to upgrade my knife set and had pretty much decided on Shun. However, I read some comments about them being a bit fragile. The people at the store confirmed that the Zwillings should be a little more durable, so that is what I went with.
I am amazed how great these knives are. I was very hesitant about spending so much money on knives, but they are well worth it. I also purchased the steak knife set and they too are great.
Whatever higher end brand you choose, I think you will be amazed as well.
No hesitation in recommending this set, especially for the price.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Sharpness, Shape, Weight
