Rated 5 out of 5 by from Personal Use I am a Pastry Chef and prefer high quality knifes. This set with the block are spectacular. The weight of each knife is heavy and feels great upon usage. I especially like that this block comes with self sharpening blades in each slot. With this added feature, I rarely need my whetstone. I wouldn’t suggest these for children as they are fairly sharp. My only harp is the angle of the knife block. It’s fairy deep from block to end of knife and if you have short counters and toddlers; they may be able to reach the knives due to this particular design. My toddler is 2.5 years and although my counters are 25” deep these knifes (in the block) are literally 5” from the edge where he can reach if he tried or at least climbed onto a one-step stool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Knife. Set. Ever! I have had the same knife set for 16 years, by a company with that room in your house, that has "kitchen" in the name. They constantly had to be sharpened, and would not really be super sharp regardless. When you hold any of the knives in this set, they are substantial; you know that you are holding quality. I do 90% of the cooking at home, but I'm sure my wife will like them too. If not, she can use the old ones. I like the tang on these far better, and it's nice to have steak knives, that have serrations, like they should.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Modern Garbage I originally left a 5 star review. After a few weeks of owning this new set, the knives are all rusting. In the blade rust spots. I've called and emailed zwilling about 10 times over the last few weeks and can't even get a reply back. I've used their knives for 20 years and can't believe how far they've fallen. These knives are garbage! Do not buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeling Spoiled With My New Knives It was hard to make a decision about purchasing new knives. Our old knives have been in the family for 40 years. It was time to take the plunge and replace them. I’m very happy so far not having to remember which knives need sharpening and which knives have already been done. The ease of care is a little unnerving but I think I can adapt. I like the metal plate on the face of the block to keep it looking nice from accidental stabbing. The variety will cover all needs in meal prep and after. I feel spoiled using these. The next 40 years of being in the kitchen are going to be much more enjoyable with new equipment for preparation of food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Upgrade This is our second set of Henckels. Our last set lasted about 5 years so we upgraded to this set and we’re very happy. The weight is evenly distributed in each knife, the handle is sleek and a comfortable fit making it less likely to slip than my old knives, and the blade is sharp. I’m not sure about the self-sharpening block; I feel like it adds unnecessary bulk and size when one could just sharpen the knives on their own. The size of the block is huge, almost too big as I had trouble finding space on the counter without it looking odd. Overall, a great set if you have the counter space and like the convenience of not having to sharpen your knives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slicin’ & Dicin’! Best kitchen purchase that I made! I was gonna say the Instapot was my best kitchen product purchased but naw to the naw naw naw! Threw some steaks on the grill and when I went to cut the meat while eating dinner, it was like putting a hot knife through budda! Yes, I spelled budda the correct way. The knife went through the meat with ease. I may have to hide these knives so the Mrs doesn’t get any ideas like on “Snapped” and have the knives cut through me when I watch too much football and not enough rom-coms. In all seriousness, great set of knives and would definitely purchase again, if I’m alive! Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnn

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sharp knives! I love how sharp these knives are! They are set in a “knife sharpening” block that I hope helps to retain their sharpness, but only time will tell on that. I chose this set over the Modernist set because of the handles. The curved handle fits my hand better than a straight one and the brushed chrome top to the block looks really good with my stainless steel appliances. The block is very large so make sure you have room for it. The base depth is 15” and the knives stick out beyond the base a few inches more. Even though the box says that they may be dishwasher safe, I would only hand wash them. Keep the box for reference as the knives are named with pictures and measurements to make it easy to pair up to their respective place in the block. It’s wonderful to have a knife for practically everything and cutting tomatoes for salsa has been like slicing through warm butter! So far we are very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Knife Set I've always wanted to buy a better knife set than the the cheap ones that I've always purchased. Finally I folded and spent three times as much as I always have before. I am so glad that I did because these lives are fantastic. They are insanely Sharp. I hand wash and dry them immediately after using and so far, the last year that I've owned them they still are Sharp and clean as new. We have bought a few sets of these to give as gifts for Christmas because we were so impressed. They are heavy in the quality feels exceptional. I know that we will have these knives for a very long time. I am 38 years old and potentially will never have to buy another set of knives.

What angle should these knives be sharpened at?

The only knives that are intended to stay sharp are serrated knives. Western the angle is 15 degrees on each side. Asian (Santoku Knife) angle is 10 degrees on each side.

While each slot is labeled it presumes that the user knows which knife is the name of labeled slot. Perhaps pictures showing name and each knife?

Asked by: Arielle
We appreciate your suggestion. The blades will generally tell you what type of knife it is. If you have any difficulty matching the knives to their appropriate slots, we are happy to help! Please contact us by phone or email using the contact form at the bottom of the page.

My only concern with the self sharpening is that every time I grab a knife, I'll need to wipe it off to clean any micro shavings of steel off. Is that the case or does the block clean them as they are removed each time?

Asked by: Cam1
We would recommend wiping the blades before use to remove any small shavings.
