Henckels Modernist 20-pcs_20-pc 20 Piece SELF SHARPENING BLOCK SET no-color is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 206.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for the value The knife set is quite nice aesthetically and the grip is comfortable in hand, and feels like a great value. We haven’t used it for too long but cuts nicely while feeling balanced. Some of my knives has small blemishes on the grip or blade, but they’re not really noticeable, and the blade seems like it might scratch easily. My biggest issue is the knife block which feels unnecessarily long. I feel like they could have shortened it for a better fit on the counter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set of knives, great price I haven't used my knives yet, but they feel nice and seem to be exactly what I need. I've hated my lower end knives for years and finally bit the bullet on this set I've been eyeing for years. The block is big, and if you have limited counter space, this could be a serious downfall, but it's a non issue for me in my current space. Looking forward to the joys in the kitchen to come!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RUSTING ALREADY I dropped a pretty penny on this set only to find that the shaft is already rusting. I am beyond disappointed. When I received a broken wok a while back I was told that the blame was the third party company that was used to pack the order... what are they going to tell me now? That this was made in china and it is not their fault? Very disappointed...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Qualité exceptionnelle pour un prix exceptionnel Tous les couteaux qu'un cuisinier a besoin se retrouvent dans cet ensemble. Les poignées offrent une excellente prise en main qui permet d'effectuer des coupes à la perfection. En plus d'être élégant, le boîtier en bois permet de maintenir les couteaux aiguisés et prêt à préparer le prochain repas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tank The knife set is a tank. It’s an absolute unit. While it doesn’t fit my minimalist style, it’s very high quality and I have no doubt it will like for years just like most henckels products. Knifes have good weight as does the wooden block. Though it’s the set is anything but subtle, it looks quite grandiose on my counter top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for quality products The 20-piece with self-sharpening set looks great on my counter. I’ve been eying this set for a while and the price at Costco is unbeatable! Love that each slot is also labelled, makes putting away easier. The stainless steel look is classic. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome set This is an attractive set. The block keeps everything in it's place. More importantly, the knives have a nice solid feel with the perfect weight. The self-sharpening feature is most handy. I would definitely recommend this set and would not hesitate to buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gift to give yourself These knives are beautiful looking, nicely weighted, easy to use and so sharp that prep time is cut :) in half. The block fits well under cupboards on counter top for easy access and looks very chic. The knives and scissors are all a nice light weight, and so sharp and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20 pc modernist set Beautiful set. Like the self sharpening feature. So far only have it for a month. We hand wash the knives. No rust issues as of yet. Purchased this set on sale at Costco Canada . Great overall set and value. The block is rather large, so be aware of your counter space limitations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Achat Les couteaux ont un bon poids pour travailler efficacement. Par contre, il faudrait avoir un peu plus d'explications sur la position de chaque couteau dans le bloc de rangement, un feuillet explicatif serait apprécié, car une fois qu'on a jeté la boîte c'est un peu plus compliqué.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic knife block set! These knives are amazing quality that have no issues cutting though every type of food I've tried. The added bonus of a self-sharpening knife block can't be beat! I purchased this set at Costco for a great price as well, and will be sure to purchase another as a wedding gift.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sharp out of the box Handles feel good in the hand but the knives feel very light - unlike my previous henckles set. I think I’d also prefer that the steak knives were just stored in the drawer - block is massive on my counter. Price was right though - we’ll see how they keep their edge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Set Of Knives Can't get much better than this knife set. It has a knife for all your needs. The self sharpener is great so you never have a full knife. Would 100% recommend this set to any household that wants one set of knives for the rest of their lives. Won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife Set I bought this from Costco to replace another knife set. The knives are exceptionally sharp and the weight of the handles are well balanced and solid. Would highly recommend this set for anyone that wants a great variety of knives for everyday cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has everything you need and more Knives stay sharp and I have more than enough steak knives to host a nice dinner party. If you get to know your knives, it shouldn’t be a problem replacing them in the proper slots. Won’t have to buy knives again for years to come - these are keepers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expanding our family Our first set of Henckels knives lasted 10+ year sand our family has outgrown them. We purchased this set to replace our originals and are very pleased. The old ones are still good and have been sent to the cabin to live out their life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Defect Chefs blade came with cracked defective edge midway up. Chefs block minorly seperating. Good looking set, classic v type ceramic and carbide sharpeners. Feel nice and are good to use. Just hopefully get the chefs blade replaced .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife set - huge knife block These knives work great, and I love the knife block with built-in sharpeners. The knife block is rather large though, so be prepared for that if you don't have much counter space, it will take up quite a bit of space depth-wise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sharpest Knives I’ve Ever Owned Just purchased this self sharpening block to replace another Henckel set that I had to constantly sharpen. The self sharpening block takes this set to the next level! Nice weight to the all steel handles as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Knives! This is our second set of Henckels knives! The first set is such a great set of professional kitchen tools, that when we saw this set on sale at Costco with a self sharpening block, we had to purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razer Sharp Incredibly sharp right out of the box. Self sharpening feature is fantastic. The fact that the knife is one piece construction and without riveted handles is huge. This set will last a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile & affordable I saw the great reviews & when I saw this set go on sale, it made my decision easier. After using them a few times, I was impressed with their quality. I will definitely follow the care instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more sharpening stones! The self-sharpening alone is worth it. I always ask my husband to sharpen our knives, but he seldom do because of work. With this, I know that my knives will always be sharp and ready to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set I love the lightweight and forged bolster design. All one piece. The self sharpening block is great too. A lot of people don’t know how to properly sharpen the knives the old fashion way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking sharp! Yes, they are knives, they are sharp, and they should stay sharp as it is a self sharpening block set. But they also LOOK sharp… The set looks nice and professional in our kitchen.
