The 12-piece block set features all the knives you need to set your kitchen up right at a great value. From the 3-inch paring for smaller scale jobs, to the all-rounder 8-inch chef’s knife for slicing and dicing, this set contains the key knives for all tasks, along with kitchen shears and a sharpening steel to keep it them in tip top shape. The set comes housed in a handsome hardwood block and features 4 steak knives.

Fabricated from durable, high-quality stainless steel, Definition’s single-piece, stamped blade construction is lighter than forged knives, offering maximum maneuverability without compromising strength or durability. Thanks to a high carbon stainless-steel construction, these knives offer power from within. Honed for long-lasting sharpness, the serrated, hollow, and fine-edge blades boast precision cutting. The curved break-proof, triple-rivet handle is comfortable to grip for tireless, balanced cutting.

Henckels Definition 12-pc Knife Block Set - Hardwood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good This is the first premium knife block set that I have decided to purchase and I am so glad that I did. The Henckels brand came highly recommended and I understand why now. Everything has been superb, from the block itself to each individual knife. They are razor sharp and the feel just exudes quality. Granted I’ve only had them for a few weeks but in that time I have found myself looking for excuses to prepare meals, just so I can use my new knives. The walnut block stands out in my light colored kitchen giving me an opportunity to show off when friends notice it. It may sound a bit overly excited but I really do like them that much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They cut great!! These knives cut great, however, I was very disappointed to see the staining on the blade that happened after the first use! My husband used the knife to cut a roast and when I washed the knife, less than an hour later, there were stains and marks left on the knife from the roast. We have had a set of knives for over 15 years (from another brand) that we never had this problem with. The staining is the only reason I gave a 4 star instead of 5 star. I know the staining does not affect the use of the knife, however, for the price we paid for this set I don't feel the knives should stain....especially since they are stainless steel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good! I was excited about this product. I've used many different knives from this company before. I haven't gotten to use them a whole lot yet as I just received them, but everything arrived and unpacked quite nicely. The only thing I was a little disappointed by was the weight. I two other knives (chefs and paring) that have a good solid weight to them and I think they've spoiled me. These were a little lighter than I was expecting. But for the price a good buy! Sharp and this set had all the different knives I wanted. Wood is a little lighter than pictured but that's not a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Crafted, Sleek, and Well-Made To provide some context, we were using very old, made-me-down knives that were taped together by the previous owner. When my parents gave us these for Christmas, I felt like a little kid again: being at home during the pandemic, I've been cooking a lot, and having a nice set of knives will go very far! Best of all, not only is the wooden block beautiful on our counter, but after much use, the set comes with a sharpener (which our old set did not have, and as a result, the blades on the knives were dull and nearly useless). I know it's the apex of adulthood to be excited about knives, but when they're as beautiful as these knives are, it's not surprising. My parents gifted these knives to us, and they own a set, so I know I would like them--and I very much do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Knife Set I love this knife set. It come with all the knives I need and I love how it comes with steak knives so I didn't know to think about purchasing them separately. It looks super classic on my counter top and the handles are super comfortable in my hand with the curves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value! This distinctive set has every knife you could want, plus a 9-inch honing rod to maintain them. And it looks beautiful in any kitchen. The good news: if this is a set that appeals to you and the price suits you, then you just nailed it. The Definition line of Henckels International is a well-constructed collection of knives. Each knife is made from high quality stainless steel. One piece of this steel runs from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle for sturdiness and stability. The handle is arched to fit tightly into your palm, and is sculpted so your fingers in optimal position. These are excellent knives for daily use. Hone them regularly and sharpen them once a year. I hand wash all my knives so they look brand new, but they are dishwasher safe. Tip: if you are uncertain about honing your knives, check out the sets with the built in sharpening system. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This block set is a super value, and if you are looking for a gift or for yourself, this block has some of the most used knives in the kitchen. The bouns with this block is that you get four steak knives and if you have ever bought or looked at steak knife sets, you know that can be pricey. Sleek and modern looking, this set would look good in any kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect starter set This is perfect for the couple, single or new homeowner who wants a good German-made block set that will not break the bank! Everything you need is here. Also makes a great gift. Love that it has both a Santoku and the shears! Not all blocks have both! The handles are also very comfortable & knives feel very durable.

In the description in two different places one says high carbon stainless steel in another part of it it says high quality stainless steel are they both the same?

Asked by: Skww
Both descriptions are correct. Our Henckels International blades are made of a carbon/stainless steel blend.

If you zoom in on the photos, they say "Made in China."
