ZWILLING J.A. Henckels Four Star Anniversary 8-pc Knife Block Set is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 785.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always the Best back in 1983 I asked a friend who was a chef at a high end restaurant what knoves he recommended--he showed me his four star Henckel Chefs knife and said if you want a knife that will last I recommend Henckels. I took that recommendation seriously and the next year started to receive them as my yearly gift from my Mother. I still have them and use them everyday. I have purchased this set for a wedding gift for friends in their 20's. I know they will both use them and they will last them a lifetime. If anything does happen to them they are lifetime replacement, no questions asked. Gotta love that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lifetime of Usage I bought this set in the 1970s in Los Angeles when I first started serious cooking at home. The salesperson assured me that this was a lifetime investment, and he was correct! I let the blades get a bit dull, but not long ago I brought them back to life with a great electric sharpener and a little technique. It was like getting a new set of knives. I was going to buy another much more costly set, but saved myself the expense by some special care of these knives. The handles aren't flashy or arty, but they've lasted many years without barely a scratch on them. This is truly a bargain in the best sense, and a consumer treasure. I don't have all eight items, but this is the same set basically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally one of my own I have always admired my parent's Zwilling knives. Now that I'm on my own i finally have my own. You cant beat the value for the price. I get all of the essentials with this set. My favorite is the prep knife. Its bigger than a pairing knife but smaller than the chef so if i dont feel like pulling out the big guns for a quick chop job I've got this one ready to go. I love the heritage of this line. Its been around forever and looks like it will be for a long time. The quality German steel and construction really make a difference. I also like how they left a few open slots so I can customize it with additional pieces to fit my needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what they used to be, no free treturns I'd used a set of these knives from the 90s for years. Finally decided to buy my own, and wanted to buy directly from this website to not support entities like Amazon. I noted no free returns, but thought I knew exactly what I was getting. But these knives were lighter and flimsier than their predecessors, with cheap-feeling handles and even a little bit of give in the blade. Not the worst, but definitely not what I was expecting. Went to return them and had to pay $40 in shipping. Will never buy knives online again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing knives After much research we purchased these knives and we are amazed at how easy they cut through raw potatoes and carrots. It makes slicing enjoyable and not such a wrist/hand cramper. There is little area where food can get trapped into hard to clean areas of the knife.. Very very satisfied with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully perfect We bought this set as an upgrade for our kitchen and it doesn’t disappoint. The handles are perfectly sized for my hand. The blades are incredibly sharp, I was truly amazed by this fact. And the knife block is a wonderful size. It’s not a countertop hog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A STEP ABOVE Knifes are very sharp I have had the set for 2 weeks. I use the Chefs knife and Paring knife most I ensure before every use to hone the blades also I recommend a good wood cutting board to a plastic or glass board. This set of knifes are great for heavy work loads fast and smooth keeps a good edge while preping fruits and veggies also stays sharp trimming and butchering meat. A great set of knifes for the consumer looking for qualit and price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect First Knife Set I searched for the perfect set of knives for my first knife set and I’m so glad I found these. I’ve been using 3 of the knives in the set for about a year as my mother owns them and I have absolutely loved them. Before I decided to purchase the set, I did a ton of research to figure out what kind of knives were right for me. I love the handle - both the anti microbial material and the shape. The blade itself is fantastic - my mother has not yet had to sharpen the blades of her 3. Overall the knives are the perfect weight for me as well. I’m very excited to get cooking with my new set of knives!

It looks like there are 3 open knife slots on this block, once the Chef's Knife is returned. What size knives will fit in those spots? I'm looking at the 7 in rocking Santoku specifically but a few others as well. 

Asked by: KatieW
The 7" Rocking Santoku will fit nicely in the second row. The additional slots can be filled with smaller knives, like a 5-6" utility or another 3-4" paring knife. We always recommend using a set and filling in any gaps with knives that you may need most for your particular cooking style.

What is the difference from four star, 5 star, Twin collection and Pro?... There doesn't seem to be a straight answer between them.

Asked by: mario42
Zwilling/Twin collection is the brand. Four Star, Five Star, and Pro are styles within the brand. They are all forged from the same special formula steel. Four Star and Five Star have traditional bolsters and molded handles with full rat-tail tangs. Pro has a curved bolster and riveted handle with a full, classic tang.

Is the Bed Bath Beyond "5 Star" model the exact same quality as the 4 star Henckel/Zwilling, and are the knives also manufactured in Germany?

Asked by: TLLL
The bedbathbeyond flyer says the 5 star set is made in Germany. The is one 5 star knife on this website and it sounds very much like similar quality to the 4 star sets with a more comfort designed handle.
