Henckels Graphite 14-pc Self-Sharpening Block Set - Brown is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 5061.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some improvements could be made This is a beautiful knife set with great feel and balance. I was a little disappointed when it arrived and the stainless steel block had a few blemishes. Then, when I put the knives in their respective spots the serrated utility knife has a lot of wiggle room in its slot causing it to look like it’s drooping down while the prep knife seats so snugly that it causes it to raise up the handle. The overall aesthetic effect is that these two knives are the only two not aligned in the block which is not visually pleasing to me. I know this is picky, but these are J.A. Henckles and I expected perfection in every aspect. That being said, they are great to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chinese Henckels These are not German made knives. Know that upfront. They do feel good in your hand and the blades are not too thin. The handles are just painted that color and not actually a different material. I have two knives that came out of the box with multiple chips in this paint. Makes me wonder what they will be like in 12 months. The knife block is big, really big. I had to put it in the corner of the counter, so not to look odd. Serrated utility knife slot has no sharper, so it drops down lower than the knife next to it with a sharpener. Just looks funny. The block also had deficiencies. Added pics to show paint and block issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expected more... Set arrived quickly and without damage to the box. After opening, I started to put the knives in there respective slots. I noticed one was blocked. It was a chunk of wood that split from when they screwed on the faceplate to the block. Overall not a huge deal (I fixed it myself) but I expected better quality control for not only the price I paid but the company who makes these knives. Attached are some pictures to portray what my issue was. After fixing the block, I had no issues. The knives themselves are sharp and durable. When used appropriately they should last for many years. I do appreciate the self sharpening aspect to this set. Overall I would recommend this product, perhaps I just received the one off dud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Value I wanted a set that didn't look dated or cheap. I found that and much more in this set. The 20-pc set is an exceptional value for the amount of items included. The knives are well made. They are balanced, strong, and very sharp. The self-sharpening block is perhaps the secret weapon to this set. It helps to prolong the life of each knife. The icing on the proverbial cake is the fact that the block is labeled to ensure that each knife is stored and subsequently sharpened according to their individual specifications. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. I look forward to exploring more of the Zwilling family of products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All things good in this package. With its very modern sleek design, this line of all metal knives is excellent. The quality of the steel, the workmanship of the fully forged blades with integrated bolster makes the knives comfortable and easy to work with whether you’re cooking for one or prepping for a banquet. These knives are well worth the money. Comfortable handle with a little heft to it for good tactile feel. This comprehensive set includes all the most used shapes and sizes. There's not much you can't do with this set of knives, including being able to maintain them. The self-sharpening block keeps the edges sharp and ready when you are. These knives will keep their edge. Dishwasher safe but hand wash to keep them looking brand new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Self Sharpening Knife Block We originally bought the Ninja self sharpening knife block, but returned it due the block being plastic and feeling cheaply made. I came across this knife block set and decided to give it a try. I am glad I did. The block base is wood and feels how a high quality knife block should. I love the self sharpening feature and I have never had to manually sharpen any of the knives as I have with past self sharpening knife blocks. The knives themselves have a beautiful graphite finish, and very well balanced and weighted. The German steel makes the blades super durable as well. Buying this knife block set will ensure you never have to buy another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh, not impressed We've had our set for over 6 months now. Soon after we received them, we put them in use, and they were pretty good. However, I've come to realize that they rust, regardless of how careful you are to hand wash and dry. For this much money, I would expect them not to rust or stain. Additionally, they promise an additional smaller knife set if you write a review, and that turned out to be a lie... They said allow up to 8 weeks to receive the set, and we're now going on about 28 weeks. After following up with them several times, I just gave up. They just kept telling me "they're on backorder". Anyways, I won't purchase this brand again.

My wife bought this set . I would like to know what degree of angle are these blades sharpened to? Asian 15 degree or English 21 degree? I sharpen my own knifes.

Asked by: Buckarooski
Edge angle 15 degrees per side Except the 7” Santoku which is an Asian blade 10 degrees per side

Are these the heavier knives, like the forged synergy? I know some of the sets are lighter weight knives now. Thank you

Can I get a listing of the types of knifes that come in this 20 pc block set? I thought it would be listed either in the description or specifications tab, but it wasn't. It's easy to recognize the steak knives but what else comes in it?

Asked by: VickyinPA
Set includes 3- and 4-inch paring knives, 5-inch serrated utility, 5.5-inch prep, 6-inch utility, 5.5-inch boning, 7-inch santoku, 8-inch chef’s, 8-inch carving, 8-inch bread knife, 8 x 4.5-inch steak knives, kitchen shears, and self-sharpening block

Hello. I’m testing to find a mention of the grade/hardness of the carbon steel in this particular set. I see the mention of German / Carbon stainless steel but I can’t seem to find the grade. E.g. is it HRC 56-58*** or is it HRC 54-56***

Asked by: Tony H
Our HI knives are HRC 55-58. These are closer to 57.

Are these knives made of German steel if they are made in China?  Some of the reviews on amazon said these knives were China metal and tend to rust after a couple of months.  I just want to make sure that is not the case.

Asked by: Redliner2435
These knives are made of German steel, which is a trade name for carbon steel. Carbon is added for hardness and edge retention but can leave the knives susceptible to rusting if not cared for properly. To prevent rusting, we recommend hand washing and promptly and thoroughly drying the knives before storage. If you have to use the dishwasher, we recommend using the dry cycle and removing the knives immediately.
