ZWILLING FOUR STAR CUTLERY SERIES

ZWILLING Four Star Anniversary 8-pc Knife Block Set is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 2096.
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 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 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 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 Beautiful knives I asked my mom, an experienced home chef, to help me level up my adulting game by getting me my first set of high-quality knives that will last me a long time. She chose based on durability, ease of use, and versatility, and I think she nailed it. I chopped some onions and potatoes as my first test and it was so much more enjoyable and satisfying a task than it has been for a while. I’d been eating less and less vegetables lately because the prep had become prohibitively difficult and slow with my old, cheap knife set from my early 20s. I’m looking forward to being able to cook and eat more healthily with these knives for years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set! I love the weight and how they handle. They are very balanced and feel good in your grip. I only gave 4 stars because the block is enormous. It's not the block pictured on the box, it has a lot of extra slots for knives that didn't come with the set. Plus one of the slots hasn't been cut well and the knife stops less than halfway in So that's one slot that is useless and 12 other empty spaces that I don't have knives to fit into it. I really have no idea how this block got put into this box. A lot of wasted space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp but Lightweight I was so excited to receive our new knife set and when I opened the box I was…a little disappointed. The knives are exceptionally sharp and since I haven’t put them to the test I can’t speak to how long they will keep their edge. I was surprised at how lightweight the blades for the prep and paring knife are. Sometimes this can be helpful but we’ll see. I was disappointed that the knives are not true “full tang”. The handles look like soft plastic and the blade does not run through the handle. I’ll give these a shot and hopefully I’m pleasantly surprised. The reviews are nothing but 4-5 stars and I know Zwilling has a good reputation so I’m hopeful.

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!

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.

Are these blades forged from stainless steel? I saw a review somewhere mentioning the blades staining badly, but that is the only review I have seen mentioning it.

Asked by: joyalan
Yes. The blades on all of our Four Star knives are fully forged from our proprietary blend and treatment of high carbon, no-stain steel. Under normal circumstances, there should be absolutely no staining, rusting, or corrosion. Four Star knives are manufactured in Germany.

 What is the difference of a chefs knife and a carving knife 

Asked by: Jaye
A chef's knife has a broader blade than a carving knife. A chef's knife is a general purpose knife that is designed to slice, chop, and take care of most every day tasks. Most people use the chef's knife for the majority of their cooking, it will be the knife you reach for the most. A carving knife has a narrower blade designed to be more maneuverable when carving and slicing. The thin profile will allow you to work around bones and get thin, even slices. It varies slightly from a slicing knife, which is simila but with a longer blade (usually 9-10"). A carving knife is nbot the best choice for most day-to-day tasks. There is very little knuckle clearance, the blade shape isn't designed to "rock" and cut ergonomically on a board. Here are examples ofthe Four Star Chef's and Carver so you can see the difference in blades. http://www.zwillingonline.com/31071200.html http://www.zwillingonline.com/31070200.html

What degree is the edge on the four star chef's knife?

Asked by: Cortney
For any of our ZWILLING and TWIN branded knives, Western-style knives, such as the Chef's knife, are sharpened at the factory to an angle of 15 degrees on either side. Our Asian-style knives, such as santokus, are sharpened to 10 degrees on each side.
