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 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 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 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 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 Last set of knives I will ever need Crazy sharp knife set! I have been eyeing a new high end knife set for about 5 years and couldn't pass up the sale price on this set. I was a bit nervous that the deal was too good to be true but could not be happier now that they have arrived. These knives are about half the weight of my nice Chicago Cutlery set I've had for 2 decades. It makes the old set feel like a battle ax. These are by far the sharpest knives I've ever used. After hand washing knives for over 30 years this set was the 2nd time I've ever cut myself in the process. Unbelievably sharp and makes quick work of everything I've thrown its way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It will cut! I'm pleased with the quality of this knife set. It feels substantial/high-quality, and it's been up to the task of whatever I've been doing. I use the bread knife a lot, since I bake bread regularly, and it's easy to cut even slices of bread. I've used the chef's knife mainly for vegetables and chicken, and I have no complaints. One minor point - and this upset me a bit when it happened, was that I didn't realize you couldn't use the scrubbing side of a sponge on the knives. After doing that on my bread knife, I had some scratches that went against the grain of the steel. I'd never noticed anything like that before, but I never looked that closely at my (cheaper) 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.

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.
